Ashley House is an attractive care home located in a quiet residential area of Bordon, overlooking beautiful woodlands.
Situated in one of Hampshire’s ‘Green Towns’, our care home is a two-minute drive from The Forest Shopping Centre with all the shops, cafés and other attractions this has to offer. Nestled in the Woolmer Forest, there are a number of lovely walking trails right on the care home’s doorstep.
Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care and dementia care.
Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounges, a light and airy dining room, beautiful gardens and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax.
We also have a hairdressing salon, a place of worship and have created our very own pub ‘The Dog and Trumpet’, which is a wonderful area for our residents to socialise.
However it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Ashley House a true home from home.
We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.
We hold regular meetings for residents and relatives, enabling our residents and their loved ones to be directly involved in everyday life at Ashley House.
Our spacious 36 bedrooms are all en-suite and have internet access and television points.
Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although we do encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.
Our lounge areas are peaceful places for our residents to use as they wish, whether taking part in activities, catching up with friends and family or simply reading a good book.
Complete with a traditional bar and optics, our specially created pub ‘The Dog and Trumpet’ is the perfect spot to socialise.
We also have a spacious, light and airy dining room which provides a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the company of others.
The landscaped gardens with sensory planting have raised flower beds for our residents who like to do a spot of light gardening. They include a water feature, tranquil seating areas and a spiritual corner, which has been blessed for residents and their loved ones to worship together.

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.
We have a hairdressing salon and our residents also enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.
Regular activities on offer include everything from singing, table-top games, arts and crafts, light exercise, bingo and live music entertainment.
We also host regular community events including our Smile and Share sessions with the Alzheimer’s Society.
Our residents also enjoy day trips to the local library, garden centres and the seaside, as well as regular visits from school children and church groups.
We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.
The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:
- Optical care
- Dental care
- Key worker
Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.
Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.
Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.
Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.
There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.
