Carla Dixon Peart
I have been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years. I have worked in many different areas of nursing, and have specialised in elderly care for the past 15 years at Beritaz Care. Following my General training in Jamaica. I have recently undertaken further training in Management. In my 15 years with Beritaz Care, the company has helped me to develop both as a person and professionally. I have been supported through my role as a Nurse to become Deputy Manager and now Manager. I love working in this field because I am passionate about what I do and I feel as a company Beritaz Care have that passion in achieving a high standard of care for the people we care for.
Susan joined the Ashton Manor team in May 2016 as Support Manager. She has a background in care and was previously managing a care home for adults with learning disabilities. She takes a real pride in her role and is passionate about promoting a positive and can-do attitude amongst the team so that everyone works together to enrich the lives of our residents delivering the sort of care that they themselves would want for their own family members. Susan says that one of the best things about working for Ashton Manor, part of the Beritaz Care family of care homes, is their culture of thinking ahead. She admires the fact that they are always thinking about continuous improvement of the service.
After working at Ashton Manor for several years as a Registered Nurse, I have now taken on the role of Clinical Lead. I have worked in the care industry for some time, working in both private and county council care homes over the years. Working in care is something I always wanted to do and am passionate about. I feel satisfaction in the kind of care that residents get here and the knowledge that their needs are being fully met. As a part of Beritaz Care, I feel you get a lot of support. Amongst the carers and all the staff there is a great culture of working hard and supporting each other. Everyone is aiming for the same thing, quality of care.
In my role as Clinical Lead I am involved in audits, medication management and supervising the care and nursing teams. Having previously worked in a nursing role in the home, I have a good knowledge of how everything operates. I have worked on both the day and night shifts, so I have seen all elements of the home and understand what the staff are experiencing. My favourite part of working at Ashton Manor has always been working on the floor. It’s where I get to work directly with the residents which I have always enjoyed, so I try to do it as much as possible.
Bank Registered Nurse
I have been a Registered Nurse for many years. I have worked in various parts of the world, including four years in a hospital in India, and five years as a hospital nurse in Saudi Arabia. I joined the Nursing team at Ashton Manor in 2009. The purpose of nursing is to promote health and healing and to prevent disease, illness, injury and disability. I enjoy my work. My company gives me full support to achieve my goal. I am very happy to be part of Ashton Manor Nursing Home.
I’ve spent over 20 years in the catering industry, and been head chef at Ashton Manor since 2013. I hold an NVQ Level 2 in Professional Catering, and I’m fully trained in Health and Safety in the Workplace and Health & Nutrition. As head chef, my job entails catering to special dietary needs, some of which are a bit ‘out of the box’ but we work alongside the management to get this right. “I enjoy my job and get great satisfaction when receiving good feedback from residents and families. The company is consistently giving me opportunities to improve with different courses available.”
Head of Care
I trained in hotel management in my native Slovakia, which gave me skills that have proved useful working here in the care home. I decided to become a care assistant after I spent more than a year caring for my grandmother in Slovakia; I also worked in a hospice. Both experiences have shaped my attitudes and approach, as well as my capabilities. I’ve worked in Ashton Manor since 2005. During my time here, I’ve gained NVQ Level 2 qualifications in Health & Social Care and Nutrition. I completed my Level 3 in 2019, after being promoted to Senior Care Assistant in 2014. I feel the company gives us all the support we need to succeed. I love working with people. I always enjoyed helping and being part of their lives. I decided to be a carer and I am finding this job fulfilling.
I have been working at Ashton Manor Nursing Home since 2016, initially as a Care Assistant before being promoted to Senior Care Assistant. With the support of my manager, I was able to embark on further training and have now taken on a role as a Registered Nurse. Being a nurse is one of the most challenging jobs but also very rewarding, that’s the main reason I choose to work in healthcare.
When I first started working at Ashton Manor I was very nervous, but grew to feel comfortable and confident thanks to the friendly welcome from the entire team that really made me feel a part of the team. I am really happy to be a part of the Ashton Manor and Beritaz Care family. I have been able to create close bonds with each resident and developed a real understanding of their needs. After each shift, knowing that I have shared my care, passion and love, and that this has helped the residents to feel happy and satisfied, makes my day.
Kitchen Assistant / Chef
Hi I’m Tina and I have been working at Ashton Manor Nursing Home since November 2011 in various ancillary roles, mainly as one of the kitchen assistants but sometimes covering the chefs when they are on leave and occasionally the laundry. I have previous experience in working in these types of roles having worked for the NHS, mainly in elderly care.
Ashton Manor is a great place to work, it is family orientated, and everyone works well together as a team. The managers are very helpful and supportive but the biggest reward I receive each day is being with the residents, chatting with them and seeing them smile back at me.
I started working at Ashton Manor in 2019, I knew nothing about the care industry but I had a caring heart. I first started working as a Care Assistant and learned a lot during that time. Ashton Manor has always supported me with training opportunities and constructive feedback, which helped me to develop my skills. Two years after I started in this role I was promoted to Senior Care Assistant, it was a great experience and came with more chances to learn and grow.
I have now taken on the role of Home Administrator, having worked previously as an administrator this is a position I feel well prepared for. I am excited for this new opportunity and for the challenges and new experiences it comes with. At Ashton Manor I can really say that I feel valued and that here opportunities come to you when you put your best effort in. I am thankful for all the opportunities given to me, to grow both professionally and personally.

My sister and I are delighted that our mother is in Ashton Manor; she has been there for nearly 3 years and we have found the staff to be consistently friendly, helpful, patient, and courteous. Our mother’s room is cozy and clean (as is the whole place) and the increased assistance she needs has never been a problem. We feel it is a really well-run care home where the staff are genuinely happy and supported which leads to the residents feeling happy and relaxed. There are plenty of activities which take place, as well as trips out or entertainers coming in.
We had to choose a care home during lockdown which wasn’t easy, but we are SO pleased we chose Ashton Manor where our mum feels so well cared for; she is always saying how wonderful the staff are!
Lucy H, Daughter of Resident
Very caring and reassuring staff. Everyone I visit the staff are welcome and friendly. The nurses are very conscientious and now a new GP will visit weekly the care will be even better. I feel my mother is definitely in the best place, especially with the lively garden which is beautifully maintained.
Nicki W, Daughter of Resident
The staff at Ashton Manor Nursing Home work as a team, they are welcoming, attentive, caring and considerate. They keep you updated on what is going on and try to entertain all the residents with activities throughout the day. The meals smell delicious and are very healthy, and those who cannot feed themselves, they always make sure that they are eating or drinking properly and encourage in a kindly way. The residence is clean and tidy and everyone plays their part with excellence. Full marks for a great team who, most of the time, are happy and interacting with residents.
