About Ashton Care

Ashton Care is a group of 3 Residential Care Homes and a Care-At-Home service. We are a family run business founded by our director, Sue, over 30 years ago. We are passionate about what we do and believe that if we take care of our staff, they are then best placed to take care of our service users. 

The first of our homes is Ashbury. This home is a 29-bed home that specialises in learning disabilities but has a wide mix of residents. The second home is Ashton Manor. This home is a 22-bed mental health care home. The final home is Abbots Lawn. This home is a 37-bed dementia care home. This home is also a palliative care service, offering end-of-life care so people can be comfortable at the end of their journey. Our Care-At-Home service is called Ashton Domiciliary Care and helps people stay in their own homes by offering support with basic tasks. Newman Property Services is the sister company to Ashton Care that operates on the same core values.
