Getting Out And About
We are proud to be situated in such a great location for our residents. Westerton Care Home sits in a quiet residential area of Bearsden, a town on the outskirts of Glasgow and not far from the hustle and bustle of Glasgow City Centre. Countryside views can be seen from our home which helps to exhibit a relaxing atmosphere each and every day.
Regular excursions into Glasgow are also organised for residents to experience a day of fun away from the home. Trips include visits to Mugdock Country Park for a scenic stroll surrounded by beautiful woodlands, a tour around Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, or Glasgow Science Centre, which are just a few of the many attractions that Glasgow has to offer to cater to all interests.
Residential care is a good option for those who are no longer able to live alone. Some people choose to live in a residential care home because it offers them security, social engagement, and professional assistance on a daily basis. Residents can benefit from an active and social lifestyle without the hassle of maintaining a household.
Residential care can improve a resident’s overall well-being. By offering more than just basic care, our residents will thrive in an environment that supports physical and mental stimulation. We want our residents to experience the highest quality of life by providing compassionate care in a warm environment where all stresses are eliminated.
By offering nursing care means we can assist those who have medical and personal care needs. This type of high-quality care is the most appropriate option for someone who needs considerable around-the-clock care; this could include those with long-term illnesses, high dependency needs or palliative care needs.
Residents who live at our nursing home will have continual assistance from our team of nurses whenever they need it. Each resident will be assigned a nurse who will be responsible for administering their medication, assisting with everyday duties and learning their likes and preferences in order to provide the most effective care.
Our team collectively has years of experience working alongside those who have lived with dementia and at different stages. Our staff goes through rigorous training so that specialist dementia care can be given at all times. We ensure our dementia care programmes at Westerton Care Home are always personalised to each resident.
Our on-site Activities Coordinators incorporate a range of dementia-friendly activities that enable residents living with dementia to socialise with others and use their cognitive skills in a comfortable environment while doing the things that bring them joy.
Respite Care is provided to everyone who needs a short-term break from the stresses of everyday life. Respite Care is an excellent option for caregivers to relax while we take care of their responsibilities for a while.
Respite Care is also suited to those who require care and support from a care team due to an illness or injury. For someone who is considering moving to our home, respite care can be used for trialling a temporary stay before committing to the permanent move.
