Madalina Ilie

General Manager

Hi, my name is Madalina, and I am the General Manager here at Ashlar House. Welcome to our website!

I trained as a registered nurse in 2010 and have worked in the elderly care sector since joining Barchester in 2015.

I have worked hard and love my job and was very proud to be promoted to a Clinical Lead, Deputy Manager and now General Manager, who is responsible for the care of those we support here at Ashlar.

I work in a wonderful home with a fantastic team, and we are all committed to creating a happy, friendly atmosphere for everyone, giving them a new home with the support they need at this stage of their lives. We have a full activities programme so that residents can pursue their interests and enjoy an active lifestyle. 

I love my work and I love Ashlar, my second home, and we hope to welcome you here to meet us one day soon.

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.
