"Dad was very well looked after by the staff, who were very caring and treated him with dignity. We as a family knew that he was safe, warm and well cared for."
"My 94-year-old mother was admitted to Westerton for palliative care in mid-September (2019) until she passed away in early November. She received fantastic care from everyone at Westerton. These are people who do their job because they love it and it shows in everything they do”.
