Statement of Purpose

General Overview

Asprey Healthcare Ltd was formed in 2014 with its current Director having more than 25 years’ experience of owning and managing care establishments throughout England. Walton Park is the second home to be operated by the Company. The existing accommodation is for 35 elderly residents who require care support and may have a diagnosis of dementia related illness. It is envisaged that Asprey Healthcare will oversee an extension of the services in the near future and offer a fully refurbished care home that will provide a high level of quality, and individualised care for men and women up to and over the age of 65, all bedrooms have en-suite facilities.

Philosophy of Care

Our passion to create a caring environment draws on a feeling felt within – as well as a wealth of experience. We believe compassionate care requires building on our employees’ skills through teamwork and partnering, where we all strive together for the best results.

Our Residents have given to Society and paid their due – in return we believe ours is place them at the centre of all we do, caring for them with dignity and respect; a hallmark for the Asprey experience.

Statement of Values

The philosophy of care will be attained through the adoption of a set of central or core values, which underpin all aspects of the operation of the Home. These core values are Privacy, Dignity, Rights, Independence, Choice, Fulfilment, Safety, Respect, and Equality.

Staff members recognise the importance of privacy and dignity, and will actively promote these core values in the following way:

  • Encourage and support residents with the help of their advocates / family to personalise their rooms
  • By providing a safe place to live, for the storage of valuables, albeit that we advise not to keep highly valuable items of jewellery at the home.
  • Giving residents the opportunity to have privacy when receiving visitors, to be able to make and receive telephone calls, or opening and reading mail, and when consulting with Medical Officers
  • Securing all residents records and information, and respecting the confidentiality of those records. 
  • Promoting activities that encourage residents to express themselves as individuals .

The central aim of Walton Park is to provide unobtrusive care and to encourage residents to remain active and retain independence and dignity. Walton Park seeks to provide its residents with a pleasant and stimulating environment in which to live, socialise and enjoy the facilities on offer. Staff will not only encourage residents to be independent from a physical point of view, but will also enable residents to act and think independently and as an individual. This will be achieved through:

  • Maximising the opportunities for residents self-care
  • Encouraging residents with the help of their advocate / families to maintain financial independence.
  • Enabling residents to take reasonable and fully assessed risks.
  • Ensuring residents maintain links and contacts outside of the Home.
  • Giving all residents with the help of their advocate / families, the opportunity to contribute to the records of their own care programmes and to freely express their views on such programmes

Staff members recognise that every resident should have the opportunity to make informed choices regarding their lives. The Home will promote this freedom of choice in all aspects of daily operations, and facilitate choice to residents by:

  • Providing comprehensive information about the Home and the quality of services.
  • Provide regular Resident and Relative meetings where they will be able to express any concerns or promote ideas regarding the operation of the home.
  • Provide each resident with a contract of terms and conditions of the Home.
  • Conduct a full needs assessment prior to admission which also ensures that the admission criteria is met.
  • Provide a range of meals that residents can choose from and allow them to decide where and when they consume the food from the choice available.
  • Continually offer a range of social and leisure activities

Asprey prides itself on providing our residents with the opportunity to live a full life with as minimum restriction as possible whilst ensuring a safe environment. However, there may come a time when colour coding fixtures and fittings to assist with personal care. Should any Resident require additional items of equipment to assist with their daily care needs, these will be provided for by Asprey Healthcare. The company reserves the right to pass on at cost price expensive items of equipment such as colour coded grab rails and WC seats.

The number of staff on duty is dependent on the number and needs of the residents in occupancy.

Walton Park has a very loyal group of staff many of whom have worked within the home for a number of years. They are therefore very experienced in their various roles. The majority of care staff hold care qualifications and all senior staff hold qualifications appropriate to their posts.

Walton Park prides itself in its training programme and in addition to formal qualifications; all staff receive training applicable to the roles they perform.

Resident Outcomes

Through our Resident Satisfaction Surveys we actively encourage involvement and comments or suggestions on the operations of the Home from Residents and their families.

Throughout the length of stay at the Home, residents with the help of their advocates / families are consulted regularly regarding the care they receive and Plans of Care, Risk Assessments and other therapeutic interventions are planned and implemented with the residents consent or if this is not possible after discussion with the care team in conjunction with the family GP, and the involvement where appropriate of the residents relatives. These are always available and are kept in the care team stations for ease of updating. For residents admitted for High Dependency Care who may be unable to communicate their needs or views, we actively encourage relative and/or advocate involvement.

The Multi-disciplinary Team

Medical and Health services are provided through an arrangement with our local General Practitioners who will visit as required to discuss medical and health concerns that the team have of individual residents.

Social and Leisure Needs

The social and leisure needs of residents will be met by our new Activities Lifestyle Co-ordinator who starts on 21.11.2022. The range of activities planned for the Home is always displayed on the Visitors notice board and website. Religious Ministers may visit the Home on a regular basis if required. If your faith is not represented by one of our visiting clergies, please contact the Home Manager who may be able to make alternative arrangements. The local Church also welcomes residents from the Home to attend their services in person.

Trial Visits / Respite Stay to the Home

We actively encourage prospective residents and their families to visit the Home prior to admission. By arrangement prospective residents may enjoy a meal at the Home. It may not be appropriate for certain service users, particularly those being admitted for High Dependency Care to visit the Home prior to admission, due to their complex medical needs and the logistics of arranging such a short visit. In these circumstances, we would actively encourage family members to view the Home. The first six weeks of a new placement are regarded as a trial period, and following this period a review will be held to ensure the placement is suitable. During this period a best interest meeting between the Manager and family is deemed good practice to iron out any issues should they arise.


Our Current basic fee for a bed at Walton Park ranges from £1400 per week and are dependency based. These fee ranges will be weighted upon care needs of each individual, and is subject to an assessment made by the Manger in the form of a Costed Care Plan and an Agreement of Terms will be required. We ask for a deposit, payable prior to admission to the Home equal to one week’s fees.

Fees are payable monthly in advance, and our finance department will invoice you directly. Residents whose placements are funded by either the Primary Care Trust or Social Services will not be invoiced. Fees are fully inclusive of all care, accommodation, full board, personal laundry, and activities. Hairdressing, newspaper, chiropody, dry cleaning and items of a personal nature, where required are not included in these fees.
