Set in the stunning seven acres in Cambridgeshire, Askham Place is one of the five specialist care homes specialised in Multiple Sclerosis and Huntington’s Disease
Askham Place is no ordinary home. It’s a unique place for young adults to live with as much independence and freedom as their condition allows. What makes Askham Place special is that it was built with input from some of the most important people – our intended residents! This has ensured that the facilities enhance quality of life for all, whether your stay is for respite, rehabilitation or for continuing/long-term care. So, what’s important to our Askham Place residents? They like to socialise, to learn, grow and above all, have fun! Everything from the large communal areas to the bright, airy and light spaces throughout are designed to encourage an inclusive and positive environment where everyone feels at home, not in a home.
Every room is en-suite and has independent access which helps to promote a sense of freedom and personal ownership of space – something that’s especially important for our residents. We have overhead tracking in all rooms to improve mobility and make day-to-day life easier for everyone. All residents have access to our onsite multi-disciplinary team who offer a range of therapies including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Hydrotherapy and Psychology.
We truly believe there’s more to life than just basic needs and we also know that no two of our residents at Askham Place are the same. That’s why we strive to make sure everyone’s personal, social, emotional and spiritual needs are recognised, and then supported, to help people to reach their potential through an active and rewarding life.

“The staff really made a difference to mum. She needed a bit of encouragement to keep going with her exercises and they really helped…”
“To all members of the Physiotherapy team, Thank you so much for all of your help. Without all the progress you have managed with me I wouldn’t be going home. When I first came to Askham I couldn’t move due to having had a stroke, I couldn’t do much for myself. I was only able to shave and clean my teeth. I made a lot of progress in those first few weeks. I am pretty much independent now. Thank you all.”
At Askham, we accept referrals from the NHS as well as from Private Case Managers. All rehabilitation is based on a continuous dialogue between you, your relatives or friends, your funders and our MDT. As you change, your goals and your input will change and Askham Village Community understand the effects this has on recovery times.
