Sharon Osborne

General Manager

Hello, and welcome to our website. My name is Sharon and I am the General Manager of Ashlar House care home. 

I am proud to be leading the fantastic team at Ashlar House to provide the very best care and lifestyle for all of the residents.  

My vision is to create a 'home from home' environment, where residents are actively involved in organising events, making decisions, and planning their care. 

Our door is always open to visitors who want to experience our family-friendly atmosphere and I am always ready to speak to anyone who is starting to explore their future care needs.


Susan Oduala

Deputy Manager

Hi, my name is Susan, and I am the Deputy Manager here at Ashlar House.

My team and I look after the daily care of all our residents, by providing first class nursing. I have been at Ashlar House since 2018 and I still enjoy every day, I don't want to work any where else.

Rita Green

Lifestyle Activities Coordinator

As a Lifestyle Activities Coordinator, I will be spending time with each resident and their loved ones to build a detailed picture of each individual, so that each person’s stay with us is as meaningful as possible.

Although I have been working within this field for many years, thanks to the uniqueness of each resident, I am always enjoying new experiences in my role. My goal is to create an activities programme that caters to the capabilities of residents, including, but not limited to, individual and group activity. 

I've spent the past few years forging strong relationships within the community and developing a pool of talented individuals that can supplement our in-house team to bring out the best in those we support.

As we never stop growing and changing, it is important that we maintain an up-to-date Getting to Know Me booklet. With your help, the activities scheduled for your loved ones will be as relevant and enjoyable as possible.

I’m very much looking forward to working with all of you.
