Armed Forces Day

We paid tribute to volunteer, Augustus Webb, aged 94, known during World War 2 as 'Wireman Webb'.

Gus first came to Westgate house in 2002 when his wife, Flo came to live with us. Gus visited Flo daily for over 8 happy years, but Flo sadly passed away in 2010 and Gus has been visiting us three times a week to give his time to the residents who, alongside all the staff, have come to love and respect him.

The staff and residents of Westgate House would like to pay tribute to Wireman Webb, his crew and all the armed forces Personnel who have served the nation.

Emmanuel's Disney Tour

Emmanuel is a young gentleman who came to Westgate House in December 2017 and, as we got to learn more about him, he confided in us that it had always been a dream of his to visit Euro Disney. Jason, one of our Care Practitioners in training, who always has the best interests of his colleagues and residents in mind, kindly volunteered to take Emmanuel himself.

Emmanuel is a very quiet person; he loves watching DVDs and his collection is growing weekly. He often goes to the cinema to see the latest films and he loved Marvel's Black Panther. Emmanuel is also a big fan of the Star Wars saga.
