Ben Rogers

General Manager

Welcome to Ashfield's website; my name is Ben and I am the General Manager here.

I am very proud to have joined the care team at Ashfields and look forward to developing the already warm and caring environment with my colleagues.

Prior to working here, I have gained 20 years of care experience, which includes several years within a management role. I have managed homes that have provided support to adults with learning disabilities, mental health concerns and those living with dementia.

The staff team and I are fully committed to and passionate about the services we provide for residents and aim to deliver the highest standards of person-centred care to those we support.

Hayley Gurklis

Activities Coordinator

My Name is Hayley and my role at Ashfields is to physically and mentally stimulate residents by offering a range of activities for them to enjoy. I want to get everyone involved and make our home community and atmosphere as positive and welcoming as possible. I want to focus on our care home being very much a home away from home. I am going to be getting to know every one of the lovely people who lives here personally, finding out their likes and dislikes, and making sure that there is always something for them to be doing.
