Westdale home is for retired men and women over the age of 65 who prefer not to cope with the responsibility of complete independence. The atmosphere is of a friendly community in which each person’s privacy is respected.
The aims and objectives of the home are:
To provide a caring environment for elderly men and women, who for health or social reasons, no longer wish to live alone but do not need nursing care.
To keep the costs to residents as low as compatible with good standards and efficient management.
To maintain high standards of care following current recommendations and requirements.
To promote independence, choice and diversity within the confines of personal abilities.
The Home accommodation:
Eighteen single rooms, all of which have en suite facilities.
Each room has a washbasin and unit with convenient power point e.g. for kettle, small fridge etc (not supplied).
There is a telephone point in each room. Residents may have a telephone installed at their own expense and pay ongoing charges.
Television sets are covered by a group licence.
Residents may furnish their own rooms for a more homely feel although personal furniture and belongings must be removed on leaving.
The contents of each room are insured up to the value of £500. Residents can take out their own additional insurance if required.
The Home Facilities
A vertical lift and separate stair lift give access to the first floor accommodation.
In addition there is a short stay room for use by prospective residents, their guests or for respite care.
There are two comfortable lounges, one overlooking the front garden and the main access and a smaller lounge, which has a view of the well
laid-out rear garden.
There is a spacious dining room, which is also used for social events.
The peaceful gardens have areas for sitting out in good weather and a summer house for shelter.
The gardens are maintained by gardeners, but there is also a raised bed for the use of residents who have an interest in gardening and a greenhouse for those who like to “potter”.
