Award Winning Care Group, Milford Care are proud of our newest Care Home, Ashbourne Lodge in Ashbourne.

With state-of-the-art facilities, spacious bedrooms and beautiful communal areas Ashbourne Lodge offers excellent care in exceptional surroundings.

Residents' lounge

Opened in August 2014, we drew upon our thirty years of experience in caring for older people when designing the refurbishment of the Home, which was previously used as a Hotel. An elegant reception gives way to a cosy snug, complete with library area, for residents who wish to relax with a good book or newspaper. Our resident’s bar and cafe provide a wonderful space for family and friends to enjoy a freshly brewed coffee with their loved one, whilst our ‘reminiscence lounge’ is designed for quiet moments and reminiscing on days gone by.

The Cinema room

For movie lovers, our Cinema Room, complete with pop‑corn and sweet carts, has regular screenings so you can catch up with your heroes and heroines from the silver screen. Alternatively our sunny and spacious blue lounge, with beautiful windows overlooking our landscaped sensory gardens, provides a larger communal area for group activities or catching up with friends.
