Residential Care

Residential care is a good choice for someone who is unable to live alone. Some people prefer to live in residential care homes because it offers them security, social engagement, and ongoing support on a daily basis. Residents can benefit from living with like-minded individuals in residential care homes while avoiding the hassles of maintaining a household, and instead be able to decorate their bedrooms with small items like they would in their own home. Our staff can help individuals with their personal care regime as this is something that can also become difficult to maintain.

Residential care aims to improve health care needs as well as enhance social and emotional well-being. We think that offering more than just basic care for our residents will enable all to thrive by fostering both physical and mental stimulation. Our goal is to give all of our residents the best possible quality of daily life here at our Glasgow care home. Family members are welcome at any time for residents to enjoy some quality time over afternoon tea prepared by our head chef or if they’d prefer, take loved ones out of the care home to visit nearby places.

Nursing Care

Our private care home in Glasgow offers nursing care for residents who require medical and personal care and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This type of elderly care is usually the best option for an individual who has physical limitations or long-term health conditions. Nursing care is also the best option for people who have critical illnesses and are at end of life and require palliative care.

Residents receiving nursing care at our private care home have complete assistance from our professional nursing care team at all hours of the day and night, making this the best alternative for people who require continual support due to a severe illness or health condition.

Respite Care

Respite care is offered to anyone who requires a break from caring daily for someone. This short-term care option is a wonderful opportunity for caregivers to take a break from their caregiving duties while we provide the best care to the individual in need of 24-hour care.

This type of care is also suited to those who need some time to take it easy after an illness or injury. It can also be used to trial our Glasgow care home for those who may be hesitant about the life changing decisions such as moving to a care home permanently.

We Are Here For You

Making the informed decision to move a loved one to a care home can be a stressful process. It can also be a challenge to determine which of the care homes in Scotland would be most suitable. At Westerton Care Home, our Home Manager works closely with residents and their families to determine the best course of action. This is achieved by assessing the residents’ needs and learning about their likes, dislikes and abilities to create an appropriate care plan.

We are proud to be regulated by the Care Inspectorate which is a scrutiny body that inspects and improves services in the social care sector in Scotland including residential care homes and nursing homes. Following our Care Inspectorate visits, we have continued to meet a high standard of care which provides peace of mind for both residents and loved ones.
