“My husband moved into Ashlea Mews Care Home eight weeks ago. From first being shown around, I had a good feeling about the place. It's very clean, tidy and well maintained. After viewing and ruling out other care homes, I was delighted and relieved to be shown an available room which was perfect. 

I met with the manager to discuss my husband's many complex needs, including poor mobility. She immediately arranged for him to have an electric, adjustable bed and his own wheelchair. I am kept well informed on all medical and non-medical matters.

I visit often. The lovely staff always help my husband walk about safely, keep him clean and comfortable. They work non-stop, caring for all of the residents, attending to their needs with patience and good humour. Nothing is too much trouble. When family visit, we telephone the home in advance if we want to make special arrangements, such as sitting outside in the garden or when a friend wants to take my husband to the local park in his wheelchair. The staff always accommodate. Our family and friends all agree that my husband receives excellent care. Thank you.”

Meet the Manager

Hello, my name is Vicki Yeoman and I am the Home Manager at Ashlea Mews Care Home. I have worked in the care sector since 1989 and started off at Ashlea Mews as a night shift care assistant in 2007, whilst being at the home I completed my Level 2 and 3 NVQ and progressed to a senior carer.

I was passionate about both medication and end of life care for residents and used this to reach Deputy Manager status. I completed my NVQ level 5 in January 2017 and became Home Manager at Ashlea Mews and I have not looked back since.
