Westmead Residential Care Home in Droitwich SpaWestmead Close, Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, WR9 9LG
Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic
Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.
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

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:
Pre-bookable respite care
Our short-term respite care breaks are an opportunity for loved ones who care for people at home to enjoy some ‘me time’, while the person they care for is safe and happy being cared for at Westmead.

Stories from the home
"My mother has been at Westmead for 12 months now and has gone from strength to strength. The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere is welcoming, happy and content."
Our residents have been busy painting a huge banner to give a heartfelt thank you to the NHS and all our key workers during this unprecedented time.
The good life
There's nothing like growing our own veg and relaxing in the beautiful garden.
We offer several spacious lounges where we relax or enjoy individual and joint activities.
Rain, wind or shine
The summer house is a firm favourite and we use it all year round, as much as we can to get some cosy fresh air.
Your own space
Many of our residents make their bedrooms their own with photographs, favourite furniture and family momentoes.
We are one big family at Westmead and love mealtimes when we get to spend time altogether and enjoy the kitchen team's food.
Our reminiscence stations are a great addition to our home, especially for our residents living with dementia.
