A comfortable home from home

Westwood Care Home provides long term, kind and secure individual care for the over 65s. We also specialise in supporting those with dementia related illnesses. Our Manager Yvonne Clark is supported by a dedicated and experienced team to deliver 24 hour care, including night care assistants and an ‘on call’ senior member of staff in case of emergency. Although unable to deliver direct nursing care, we work with a great team of District Nurses referred to attend our residents via a GP when required.

General Facilities

Our large Victorian townhouse sits in mature gardens that offer a lovely outside space to enjoy. Warm and comfortable our residents have use of our spacious and light lounge diner and views across the grounds. All our bedrooms and bathrooms have a homely feel and, again, many have views of the garden and plenty of natural light. Westwood is a home where we encourage residents to fully enjoy life, keep up hobbies through our wide range of weekly activities and maintain their independence. Smelling fresh and looking clean and tidy, the home is cleaned daily and we pride ourselves on maintaining the building and environment to a high standard. Laundry and housekeeping is included in our fees with the exception of dry cleaning.

Room Facilities

We encourage residents to bring in personal items of furniture and precious photographs to enable then to feel at home straight away in their private rooms. All rooms have washing facilities together with a staff call system and some offer the chance to share with a companion.

Meals

Interesting and varied home cooked meals are provided by our catering staff. Choice is offered at each meal with snacks and drinks available throughout the day and specialised diets catered for.

We are happy to assist residents with eating and drinking and visitors are welcome to join residents for meals.

Outside

Our secure enclosed garden lined with mature trees is a lovely pace to get some fresh air, sit and relax. A gazebo in summer provides shelter from the sun and gives residents and visitors a nice place to catch up. Outdoor seating is available all year round.

Safety and Specialist Features

Individual, thermostatically controlled central heating and correct ventilation ensures we maintain a pleasant temperature throughout Westwood House. A full fire detection and alarm system is maintained, tested and fully compliant with regulations. Lifting and bathing aids ensure all residents individual needs are catered for and further equipment is provided by visiting Occupational Therapists and District Nurses. A stair lift is fitted to help residents to the first floor where needed.
