Activities at Ashford House Care Home

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.

I believe and work towards making a positive difference to their day to day life and I can honestly say this is one of the most rewarding jobs. I am really enjoying my role as an Activities Co-Ordinator at Ashford House.

A Visit from Santa

Residents celebrated a heart-warming Christmas at Ashford House Care Home, where personalized gifts brought joy to residents and staff joined in festive cheer. Our activity staff lovingly chose each gift the residents wished for and presented on Christmas Day where Santa was ready with his special delivery service. The pure joy on residents’ faces was all worth the preps. No matter how old you are, Christmas is a time of wishes coming true and that’s exactly what we wanted to achieve. Grateful for the warmth and togetherness shared on this special day.
