Hi, my name is Peter, and I am the General Manager here at Ashfields. Welcome to our website!
I started working as a carer thirty years ago a dementia care home in Norfolk. I wanted to make a difference to people’s lives and still find the work I do rewarding. I then trained as a nurse completing my training in Winchester and have worked in acute hospital settings as well as community settings and have spent the last ten years managing services covering multiple aspects of the care field.
I am proud to now be the General Manager of Ashfields and working with such a great team. Our refurbishment will make it one of the loveliest homes in the area but we will aim to keep it a home from home for our residents. I am looking forward also to meeting members of the community and to showing them the changes taking place here as well as inviting our neighbours to meet the residents and join in with activities.
