Daisy Mingle

General Manager

My Name is Daisy Mingle.  I am happy to say I am the General Manager here at Ashford House.  
Welcome to our website!
I have been a Nurse for over 15 years and have continued to develop my skills in nursing people living with Dementia through the excellent training that Barchester Healthcare have offered me.
Working in a dementia setting is a  rewarding career. I feel residents treat the team as their own family, you can feel the genuine response from them , their trust , acceptance and their lovely smile in their faces. It’s such a pleasure to care for them.
I am so proud of the elderly care Ashford House offer to people living with dementia at our nursing home and we like to help if we can. 
I am happily married with a son and I feel privileged to be able to work in a job I feel passionate about.

Cristina Marin

Clinical Deputy Manager

Hello. My name is Christina. I am the Clinical Deputy Manager here at Ashford House.

I qualified as a nurse in Romania. From 2000 I started working with Barchester and in 2003 progressed to the role of senior carer while waiting for my pin number. I continued as a nurse afterwards. I’m grateful for the experience that I have gained working with Barchester to improve my skills, and the training that has been provided by the company.

There have been challenges in the past but we remain focused on residents wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of our team and ourselves.
