Services and Facilities

Care Services

Westwood provides long term EMI care services for seniors over the age of 65 specialising for those with dementia and old age. We have a team of District Nurses who visit our residents on referral from a GP, although we donít provide direct nursing care for residents in the home.

General Facilities

The home accommodates 16 residents in newly decorated rooms and has a large lounge diner. To get you out and about, we have transport which has been custom altered to accommodate wheelchairs for outings and appointments. Smelling fresh and looking clean and tidy, the home is cleaned on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on maintaining the building and environment to a high standard. Laundry and housekeeping is included in our fees.

Room Facilities

All rooms have washing facilities and a staff call system and some offer the chance to share with a companion. We welcome personal furniture and possessions always hoping to give you a home away from home

Meals

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

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

Garden

We have a secure enclosed garden lined with mature tree which is a lovely pace to get some fresh air and sit and relax. A gazebo in summer provides shelter from the sun and gives residents and family a nice place to sit and chat. Outdoor seating is available all year round.

A pleasant temperature is maintained throughout the home by central heating with individual thermostat controls, along with the correct ventilation. To keep all residents safe, a full fire detection and alarm system is maintained, fully compliant with regulations.
