Meet our Activities Coordinator, Denise Saliagopoulos

I joined Ashford House Care Centre at the end of September this year. I am a locally elected Councillor.  I love working with the residents at Ashford House.  I am keen to provide a happy and stimulating environment for our residents. I really find working with the residents rewarding and fun.

Activities at Ashford House

Here at Ashford House we try to aim to cater to everyone’s hobbies and preferences, nothing is impossible! All our activities are designed to empower our residents helping them complete meaningful activities that stimulate them mentally, physically and emotionally. As well as sticking to 'mainstream' activities that you would normally find in this kind of environment, we aim to step outside the box with our provision. We think this is the best way of creating person-centred activities, as each plan is uniquely crafted around each individual, who are treated with respect and dignity in their choices and supported to take control of how they spend their time.

Vaccination Day with flowers

Today at Ashford House , all our Staff and Residents were vaccinated for COVID-19.  It was a very busy day but so worth it to have a fully vaccinated home. The Homes Manager Dily and our Deputy Manager Daisy,  then presented all the staff with chocolate and flowers as a thank you for all their help and hard work.  The flowers and chocolates made this day extra special for our teams.  It was so wonderful for Phil and Peter from the NHS to come into our Ashford House to vaccinate our residents in the comfort of their own home.
