A quintessential English country house, Astley Hall has recently been refurbished to highest standards, with independent accreditation and highly trained staff, providing a unique residential care environment.
It was cold and crisp outside yesterday, but the atmosphere in The Dementia Cafe was, as always, warm and...
Astley Hall provides tranquil and relaxing accommodation in a country manor house set in beautiful grounds.
The home was acquired by Heritage Manor group in 2012, and has since undergone an extensive refurbishment to make this listed country seat of Sir Stanley Baldwin a comfortable and appealing home for its residents and staff.
Astley Hall enjoys full compliance with the Care Quality Commission, and has also been awarded the Worcestershire dementia standard. We provide dementia and nursing care for both respite and longer term, in the unique setting of a country manor house.
Our home offers both single and shared accommodation, with many bedrooms enjoying superb views out over the valley. They are fully furnished, and tastefully decorated to a high standard. We have a number of lounges for residents to use, or one can simply relax outside with views looking out over the valley.
I would like to wish you all a very warm welcome to Astley Hall in Worcestershire. I have been a nurse for over 30 years and have worked in many nursing roles but have specialised in elderly care for most of my nursing career. I trained at the Mid-Worcestershire school of Nursing in 1982 and have worked in the NHS and the private sector, as well as bringing up four children whilst working full time! I have worked in Nursing home management for about 10 years.
Having managed Nursing Homes for a number of years now I bring with me a passion for ensuring the highest quality of care is delivered to our residents by delivering an approach to individual need. I have an open door policy for staff, residents and their families, ensuring everyone knows they can approach me at anytime, should they need to chat. I want to maintain an environment where feedback and open discussions are paramount in enabling us to continually improve the already high standards we aim to attain.
I firmly believe that we are very privileged to care for the people in our home and that we can learn so much from them through their vast array of life experiences and person hood. I have a dedicated and valued team of staff, many of whom have been working at Astley for years. I am proud to manage a very hard working and devoted team.
We have long-standing and dedicated nursing teams in our homes, with many years of professional experience between them. This has enabled us in a number of our homes to have achieved the highest accreditation for nursing care, the Gold Standard Framework.

"Thank you for helping our mother maintain her dignity towards the end of her life and thank you for guiding us through her last days and taking care of us."family of DG, May 2017
"Both my parents live at Astley. Since they are both frail and unable to cope at home, this was transitional, firstly my Mother who has dementia and more recently my Father who is also requiring substantial care. The family visits the hall, and we always find them in good care. The home is well staffed, and the carers friendly. No complaints about the food and the place has the credentials of being clean, and well run. Most importantly, I can trust the nursing staff to make the right decisions, on what they can cope with and when hospitalisation is necessary."Richard P, son of resident December 2017
"Astley Hall is a quality care home. There are so many good memories and comments we could make. We will always be grateful."DC and family of resident, February 2018
"Thank you all very deeply for looking after my parents in their last years. They moved to Astley Hall together in 2013. You all helped to make my parents last years better and our family is very grateful to you all."S & PB, January 2018
"We can't thank you enough. We will never forget the kindness you showed to her and to us as well. We shall miss seeing you all as you became such an important part of our lives for almost 4 years."L & C, January 2018
CQC are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.
CQC make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage us to make sure we are providing the best care possible.
As with all of our homes, we do our up-most to ensure our residents get the most they can from life. We have a full-time activities programme run by our activities organisers, ranging from beauty treatments in our nail spa to live music.
Our food is locally sourced, cooked from fresh ingredients and so tailored to individuals’ wishes and needs.
We encourage residents to get outside to our garden with beautiful, uninterrupted views over the valley to the village church. We have just installed a serenity garden using monies kindly bequeathed to the home, to make the best use of the views.
Our characterful lounges were all refurbished in 2013 to provide a warm, communal area for residents and their visitors to enjoy; we have the space for t.v areas or more quiet, secluded areas. We have separate dining rooms, as we promote meal times as a sociable activity. Family and friends are encouraged to visit at any time, and join in with the activities or mealtimes.
We would love to hear from you and discuss any questions you have and to help you make the right decision for you or your loved one.
