With a devoted and long-serving team, many of whom have worked here for years, Westmead has a warm, homely, extended family feel.
Westmead provides residential care and care for older people living with dementia, as well as adult respite breaks. These flexible short stay and long-term breaks give caregivers in our community the chance to take a well-earned rest.
What are the gardens like at our care home?
The extensive gardens are a huge focal point; whether we are sitting outside in the summer house, planting cucumbers and tomatoes in the new greenhouse or sowing wildflowers, the grounds are a hub of activity. We also have sensory planting in our accessible raised beds, known to have soothing qualities, as well as aiding reminiscence for our residents living with dementia.
The dining room overlooks the garden, where our residents can watch the wildlife whilst enjoying delicious home-cooked, nutritious meals!
A care team with such experience
With a highly experienced and dedicated team at Westmead, we are like a big family. Many of the staff have worked at the home for over a decade and some over 15 years.
They include Brenda, who was recently shortlisted for a Worcestershire Health and Social Care Award for being a "ray of sunshine", who is utterly devoted to Westmead. Her nomination highlighted how she spends many extra hours of her time doing things to bring the resident's joy. From planting spring bulbs to taking them on a ''virtual'' trip to somewhere they've always wanted to visit via Google Earth, our residents' smiles say it all.
Like Brenda, deputy manager Taymar has been with us for over 15 years, as has our administrator.
As reflected in the CQC rating, our team at Westmead is exceptional, achieving ''Good'' in every area of the latest report.
Our excellent care home activities
We have our own activities coordinator Kate, who organises so many meaningful experiences for our residents. Kate has formed a close relationship with a children's nursery in Droitwich Spa, who are looking forward to doing some exciting and engaging intergenerational projects with us. She has also embraced a spring initiative project and organises pamper sessions.
Our home also has a hairdressing salon, with a mobile hairdresser visiting us and other care homes in Worcestershire for appointments every week. Other visitors include our favourite Cockapoo Noodle!
Communication with loved ones is essential now more than ever. Of course, our residents love it when their family and friends visit, but we also have our iPad for residents' use to keep people in touch via video calls.
Westmead is also within walking distance of the Droitwich Spa town centre, with its parks and cafés, and we also have fantastic links with local church groups.
The home has lots of cosy lounge areas, which are homely and sociable spaces for our residents to enjoy each other's company.
More on the types of care services we provide at Westmead
Our respite care breaks can be both short term (a week) or longer. The respite services are flexible to your needs. So, if you are a caregiver looking after an ageing or frail relative at home or caring for an elderly parent living with dementia or age-related conditions, we are here.
We offer planned respite if you want to book a holiday or a temporary break from caring, with the peace of mind your loved one is being cared for. There's also emergency respite for the things you can't plan for. Depending on your needs, we can offer convalescence care if you need support following a spell in hospital.
Whether you are joining us for residential or dementia care, or respite services, everyone at Westmead is welcome to participate in a range of daily activities, which our team plan around your hobbies and interests. These can range from helping out in the garden, enjoying some delicious home-baked treats, or participating in arts and crafts.
It is usual for residents in residential care homes to contribute to the cost of their care. Some people have the resources to pay for this in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions.
Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to understand the level of care and support needed.
Our 2022 weekly care fees for residential care start from £877 but maybe in the region of 20% more*. This depends on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms to our premium bedroom options.
*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support, your weekly fee could be higher.
