"My mother initially went to Westergate for respite, following the death of her husband, then settled there. She was looked after very well in these final months and she always spoke highly of the staff, cleanliness and food (especially the soup!). I was kept well informed and the staff, without exception, were always helpful, knowledgeable and supportive, whether contacted by phone or in person. Westergate has a clean, homely, welcoming atmosphere and everyone is really friendly. Mum's visitors were always made welcome and often took lunch with Mum, either in the residents dining room or separately in the conservatory. Mum liked the view of the gardens from her room and enjoyed the occasional trip out, whether taken by us to a nearby tea room or as an outing to a local garden centre. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others."
