Hi, my name is Daisy, and I am the General Manager here at Ashford House. Welcome to our website!
I have been part of the Ashford House team for a long time now and I am enjoying using my skills and experience in nursing to care for the residents. I have been a nurse for over 15 years, starting in the Philippines, and have continued to develop my skills since moving to the UK.
I am happily married with a son and I feel privileged to be able to work in a job I feel passionate about.
Hi, my name is Sheeba, and I am an Activities Coordinator here at Ashford House.
Having a degree in Fine-Arts and a creative background enables me to plan person-centred activities according to the personalities and tastes of our residents here at Ashford House. 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.
I joined Ashford House as Head Chef in 2015, having previously worked for several large catering organisations. I wanted to be able to focus my skills on providing for a smaller group of people with varying needs.
I am responsible for managing the kitchen budget as well as my kitchen team, which comprises a 2nd and 3rd chef and 4 kitchen assistants.
My primary focus is to ensure high quality, nutritious, appetising meals are provided for our residents, using fresh, seasonal produce as much as possible. There are many different dietary needs amongst our residents and I enjoy working with families to ensure their loved ones’ nutritional needs are fully addressed whilst, at the same time, providing them with their favourite foods.
My kitchen team and I know how important food safety, hygiene and cleanliness are in the kitchen environment, and I am proud of achieving excellent results in all inspections, by both in-house and external auditors.
I encourage my kitchen team members to take advantage of courses offered by Barchester to improve their skills in order to enable them to further themselves.
