Shackletons – Ashbourne Lodge

Award Winning Care Group, Milford Care chose Shackletons to transform a former hotel interior into a comprehensive care home interior for the Group’s newest Care Home, Ashbourne Lodge in Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

Shackletons were contracted to work on the refurbishment project to develop a tired and unused hotel into that of an elegant and homely care home environment that would celebrate the top quality service the Group offers its clients.

In conjunction with Milford Care Shackletons created spaces that offer the ultimate comfort for the needs of each and every resident. Whether reading newspapers in the library, or enjoying refreshments with family and friends in the café every aspect was tailored to the residents’ requirements.
