Ashurst Mews Care Home is situated just outside Northampton in the village of Moulton and not too far away from other Avery Healthcare homes — Spencer House and Cliftonville in Northampton. We offer residential, nursing and dementia care and like to involve all our residents in every aspect of home life, make new friends and even take up new hobbies. After all, you’re never too old for something new.
We have a lovely garden which surrounds the home and is wheelchair accessible, of course. Sitting out in the sunshine and admiring the roses when the weather is fine always raises our spirits. Our interiors are beautifully designed and allow plenty of room for all sorts of activities, socialising, or just for sitting quietly, if you prefer. Our cinema room is very popular, with those good old musicals firm favourites.
We like residents to personalise their bedrooms, which all have walk-in showers and flat screen TVs. Housekeepers see that they are always kept in order – the rooms that is, not the residents!
Family and friends are urged to come and visit as often as they like and get themselves as involved as their loved ones. The better the communication, the better the care. Come and enjoy an afternoon matinée in our cinema with us; we’ve even got the popcorn.
To see what we get up to you might want to view our dedicated Facebook that is kept updated with all the activities and goings on in the home, or call our friendly manager Shweta Mendon on 01604 493233 if you have further questions or would like a tour of the home.
Our Well-being Programme
We put a special emphasis on keeping bodies moving. A healthy and active body means a healthy spirit and positive outlook. Some of residents had great fun in hosing down the patio and getting rid of the bird poo recently. They didn’t just sit there and watch others at work, they did it themselves! We enjoy sitting-down activities too. Here is some of what we do:
- Daily exercise session with personal trainer
- Cinema Club with all the good old favourite films
- Monthly visits of exotic animals and birds from the team at Zoo Lab
- Going to the local church and clubs
- Pottery lessons
- Going out for fish and chips
We have established strong ties with local schools and associations, which ensure that residents remain part of the wider community. The local Moulton Residents Association host their meetings at Ashurst,and residents help deliver their magazine. Moulton Church comes in for monthly Sunday services. We often have trips out with the other nearby Avery homes, Spencer House and Cliftonville, so we have a wide social circle to draw on. Our Facebook page keep everyone in touch with what is happening.

Ashurst Mews Care Home
Moving to a care home is always very fraught, for both the resident and their relatives. The manager of the home put us at ease immediately with her sympathetic and caring approach. I was already aware of Avery, so had chosen the home based on reputation, but during the final days of my Mother's life I was overwhelmed by the care and attention that was shown both to her and the family. Most noticeable was that all staff, no matter what their position was, showed compassion and expressed genuine sympathy to us all and made the whole experience of watching her slowly ebb away so much easier to cope with. It is something that I will never forget. The funeral directors also informed me how impressed they were, when on collection of my Mother's body how the staff acted, but more importantly how they had prepared my Mother. It is not something that they had previously witnessed at a care home. Thank you all for the respect and dignity that was shown to her - we could not have possibly asked for anything more.
Comments such as these make all the difference to those whose work sometimes goes unnoticed, so thank you.
Cream Cakes for Tea!
We like our cream cakes and tea of course, especially when we can sit in the garden or when we have a fete or open day. But we make sure we have our fair share of healthy food and fresh fruit and vegetables as well. Our chef only uses fresh food, locally sourced if possible, and cooks on the premises, taking care to make the three main meals a day nutritious and balanced.
Dining is an integral part of life, an important focal point of the day. One of our highlights is having themed days, when our cruise ship (not a real one, a model) calls in at various locations. For instance, when it stopped in India, we had a lovely choice of samosas, pakoras and bhajis as well as just plain popadums.
There’s always a choice on the menu, so all tastes are catered for, as are special diets. Come and see for yourself and join us for a meal or a nice cup of tea and cream cake!
