Our mission statement states

Ashlea Grove has a 17-bed secure dementia unit and a 20 bed rest home. We pride ourselves on offering a high standard of care. We operate an open discloser policy and an
open door policy, visit us anytime.
We have an excellent activities programme that is developed for our residents' individual needs. We enjoy group activities, indoor bowls being a favorite. We aim to promote a safe, warm, friendly homely atmosphere for our residents. We believe that family is important. There's always a cup of tea waiting for you and Angie-lee and Ricky are here to help with any questions you may have.

It is our mission at Ashlea Grove to provide all our residents with a safe caring country environment that is comfortable and homely and enables residents to maintain their independence as much as possible.

Ashlea Grove Rest Home has a special place in the hearts of the Milton community, as it use to be the local hospital. Many of our residents had their babies here many years ago.

We pay particular attention to special events in our residents lives during the year. Christmas time in particular receives many positive comments from the residents and those who visit. Ashlea Grove has undergone a face lift throughout the rest home with new furniture, drapes, carpet, wallpaper and more up to date pictures and paint scheme. Ashlea Grove is a family run rest home, we pride ourselves on being family based and we are lucky to be in a envious position where our caregivers are locals therefor they bring a loving family environment to this beautiful rest home.

We work in our resident's home they do not live in our place of work.

" I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the care given to my mother during her stay at Ashlea Grove and wish them well for the future" 11-07-12

" I am dropping you a note to let you know that in the short time my sister-in-law .... was in your care, she really loved being there. She said she had lovely meals, really nice home made baking, really nice company and you were all so caring.
Too many times today all we seem to hear is negative comments, so I thought I would pass on .......... appreciation and ours." 6-01-2012

" To all the Staff at Ashlea Grove
On behalf of the family I would like to thank you for the exceptional care of our father. Some of his happiest days were at Ashlea Grove, where he enjoyed the care and attention of every one. I'm sure it will be a long time before he will be forgotten" July 2012

Well done to the great team at Ashlea grove, The place looks amazing, Having mum at Ashlea grove the past 4 years has let me see the massive changes take place with all the refurbishing and rebuilds. Mum loved the staff and would often say you are all like family. Thank you so much for making my mums last years enjoyable and making me feel part of the place whenever i visited.
Kind regards
