The activities were fantastic and plentiful for the residents throughout December and the Christmas day lunch and festive celebrations were brilliant all the residents and us the family who attended had a wonderful time, mum was so happy. Thank you and a happy 2018."

"My mum was a resident from March to December when she died. From our first visit to the home we knew it was right for Mum. The first person we met who showed us around was friendly and welcoming. What was also good to see was the way the staff were friendly, kind and supportive to each other. It really was like being in a family and not a home. Mum was always treated with respect and her dignity was always taken into account. She was encouraged to make friends and we were always made welcome. Mum was happy."

"We are not all perfect, as we all have our flaws, but regarding this place, I have never regretted being part of this community of great people. The hospitality is good, as both staff and management are supportive. The management team are always available to listen and attend to my needs. In short, I am glad to be here, to meet some lovely and supportive staff."

"A very good interaction between staff and residents. Also good interactions between staff and visitors. The care offered to the residents is excellent. Once when I bought my mother's sister for a visit one of the care assistants offered us tea and cakes, which was well appreciated as we had had a long journey, but she didn't know that."

"My father is getting great care and attention and as a result of this, his health and demeanour have vastly improved over the time that he has spent here. It was a long wait, but I am so convinced that it was worth it."

"My 92 year old mum was fortunate to be accepted for a placement in nursing care after she lived in a well-known care home for dementia residents, this is where she fell over hurting herself badly, leaving her with psychological problems and a fear of falling and left day to day alone in her bed without being shown due care and attention. Westgate House Care Home has been a godsend after three miserable years! It is clean and bright, friendly carers and nurses, very well decorated. Rooms are lovely and welcoming and again tastefully decorated/furniture. Excellent food and day to day interaction with staff and residents. Activities are varied and plentiful, a small cafe on site and a lovely garden."

"My mother has been her since October last year. She is very well looked after. She is clean and tidy and her needs are well catered for. She has dementia. The staff are friendly and willing to follow any family directives and personal preferences. However she attends activities in the morning but gets bored afternoons and evenings. I visit regularly at different times but otherwise she is well looked after."

"This is my mothers second short stay at Westgate. Overall from the management assessment to the care and attention that my mother received on both occasions, I found it to be of excellent standard. The staff have shown great attention to detail in caring for mum. The staff have taken the time to get to know mum as an individual and have noted her personal needs very well. Thank god for Westgate House."

"My wife was a resident at Westgate House for 9 years. We celebrated our 60th Wedding Anniversary here in 2004, we got a nice telegram from the Queen. When my wife sadly passed away, I planted a rose tree in her memory in Westgate garden. The home is so welcoming and I was so happy with the care they gave my wife. I come here three times a week to talk to people, to be friends because I enjoy going to Westgate House."
