Westmead is an attractive care home surrounded by pleasant and secluded gardens.
Situated in a quiet residential area of the spa town of Droitwich in Worcestershire, our home is located less than a mile from the town centre with all the shops, restaurants, lido, a stunning park and all the other attractions this has to offer.
Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care, dementia care, respite care and day care.
Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounges with fireplaces, light and airy dining rooms, landscaped gardens and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax.
However it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Westmead a true home from home.
We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.
We also have our own residents’ committee, where our residents are directly involved in everyday life at Westmead.
Pre-bookable respite care
Our short-term respite breaks are an opportunity for loved ones to meet new people, enjoy delicious home-cooked meals and enjoy all the comforts of home whilst receiving high-quality care and support. Westmead now provides pre-bookable residential respite care, giving carers the opportunity to take a break of their own.

Our spacious 31 bedrooms all have internet access and television points. We also have two double bedrooms for couples (subject to availability).
Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although we do encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.
We have several lounges for our residents to use as they wish, whether taking part in activities, catching up with friends and family or simply reading a good book.
Our dining room, which opens out onto the gardens, provides a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the company of others.

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities person to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.
We have a hairdressing salon and our residents also enjoy being pampered with manicures and hand massages.
Residents also enjoy regular activities including arts and crafts, painting workshops, bingo, movie matinees, flower arranging, sing-a-longs and pamper sessions.
The care home also hosts themed community events throughout the year, including summer fetes and Christmas fairs.
We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.
The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:
- Optical care
- Dental care

Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.
Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.
Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.
Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.
