"We have a unit for Rest Home Care and a secure unit for Dementia Care. It is our mission at Ashlea Grove to provide all our residents with a safe caring and supportive 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 an 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
