At Westerton Care Home we are proud to provide the highest standard of care for all of our Residents.
At Westerton we provide twenty-four hour nursing care for our residents.
Our experienced and dedicated staff enable us to nurse those with physical disabilities, those who are terminally ill, those with high dependency needs, and those who become infirm.
The manager is supported by professional qualified nurses and care assistants. Nursing care is delivered using a method known as key nursing. Each resident is allocated a nurse who will soon become a familiar face and will answer any queries or anxieties you or your relatives may have. In the absence of your nurse, another member of staff known as a key worked will care for you.
At Westerton we are pleased to offer specialist Dementia Care facilities for individuals with dementia.
Our staff are fully trained to understand dementia, and we take pride on providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual.
Through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction, frustrations and tensions linked with dementia are relieved.
