It’s been a good year for Ashgrove House founder Keith Trowbridge. The home received the coveted CQC Outstanding rating in April.
Rating Ashgrove Outstanding for being Caring, Responsive and Well-led, the CQC commented: “There was a strong person centred ethos, which was embedded throughout the home. This was to always treat people with dignity, as you would want to be treated and to remember the ‘Ashgrove smile’.
The ethos of the home was intended to make people feel valued, supported and included, with an aim to enhance overall wellbeing. There were a high number of staff on duty at all times, to support people effectively. The staffing levels enabled people to receive focused, uninterrupted care in a relaxed and unhurried manner.” Residents at Ashgrove House are in the best possible hands with Keith and his Mary both qualified nurses.
As a vocal Brexit supporter, Keith welcomed this year’s vote to come out of the EU arguing it would have no impact on his business. Keith said: “I’m pleased about the result and I think it will good for us to be more independent with less meddling from Brussels. It doesn’t affect my business except in a positive way i.e. less red tape. I don’t employ any European nationals.”
