Our attractive care home, which is rated Good in every area by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), is nestled in a quiet residential area of Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire. We are surrounded by pleasant and secluded gardens and are within walking distance of the town centre and train station.
Within our cosy grounds, there is a large and beautiful garden. It's landscaped with lots of sensory planting and bright flowers. Some of our residents have loved gardening for all their lives so we support them to continue with this hobby. There is a greenhouse in which we grow tomatoes and cucumbers planted by the residents. Gardening enhances that feeling of independence for our residential residents, who really take ownership of this space.
Westmead also has peaceful seating areas and an attractive summer house, which provides a nice shaded spot to sit in during the warmer months. The gardens are a real focal point of our care home during the summer, when we invite people from the community in Droitwich to join us for celebrations.
With cosy lounges dotted throughout the home, rather than one big communal space, Westmead feels like a real family home. They are perfect places to catch up when someone special visits or enjoy group activities such as visits from Pets As Therapy (PAT) dogs.
One of our lounges has also been blessed and acts as the spiritual room for our residents who are religious, with services from the local Droitwich churches taking place here.
Droitwich care team with experience
The team at Westmead are like a big family and that’s what makes the home so special. They provide residential care, dementia care, respite and dementia care with kindness and dignity.
At the helm of the team is our home manager Michelle, who has over 20 years’ experience in the care sector. She manages an experienced and long-serving team, including a care assistant who has worked at the home for over 35 years and an administrator who has been there for over 18 years.
And don’t just take our word for it. Many of our residents and their family members have taken the time to leave positive reviews on website carehome.co.uk – an independent care home review site, one of which includes:
“Westmead is a home from home. For over three and a half years I've been visiting my brother about twice a week. I've been so impressed. The staff are like angels, never complaining and always ready to comfort residents and visitors when needed, always compassionate. When residents fall ill the medical attention is brilliant. To care for the elderly is a special calling. Thank you Westmead carers you are wonderful."
