Askham awards

ASKHAM Care Homes at Doddington is in the top three, nationally, in the Pinders Design Awards in the category of Design for Younger Adult Care.

And on Thursday, March Mayor Bernard Keane and the vice-chairman of Fenland District Council Ken Mayor, presented donations to Askham Care Homes chosen charities - The National Spinal Injury Association and the local Scouts.

Askham Care Homes took this opportunity to present a donation to Doddington Parish Council for its Jubilee celebrations.

Askham provides services on the premise that those who live in care deserve at least the same levels of comfort and quality as anyone else. Whether it’s landscaped gardens and portrait windows at eye level or the on site gym and café or their own front door and personal garden area - younger adults in care at Askham live in an environment that provides space, freshness and natural light at the centre of its design.

Askham Care Homes is a community where all ages and needs are catered for.

“The last two years have seen significant transformation at Askham with an investment of £4.5m completed 2011, with doubling of capacity comes employment and activity in the locality,” said Salim Giga, chairman, adding the management team have risen to the challenges of continued good quality of care and integrating new services.
