All About Westwood  Care Home

Ready to welcome you.

Our aim is to provide a safe, comfortable and caring home from home for all our residents. Professionally run, yet with a warm and friendly atmosphere. A place where we encourage all our residents to keep up old hobbies and try new ones, make new friends, welcome family and visitors and live as full and interesting life as they wish.

“Thank you for the exceptional care , comfort and companionship you give to mum.” Dr Laura Phipp 

All our residents are fully consulted about anything that affects them, their wellbeing and quality of life. For us it is all about ‘person centred care’ and the dignity of individuality and privacy.
