Welcome to Westroyd House Care Home

Just a five-minute walk from the centre of Shepshed, Leicestershire, Westroyd is a purpose-built residential home for elderly people who are physically and mentally frail.

Our highly trained team members specialise in palliative care and providing professional support to those living with dementia. All residents are fully assessed before coming to us, so we have a clear understanding of their needs, and can set goals and agree outcomes with families in advance.

Our lovely rural location makes Westroyd a lovely place to stay, with two detached buildings boasting beautiful views over open countryside. Both the main house and our recently refurbished dementia unit, The Lodge, have their own patio areas.

Standard accommodation is a single room with en-suite, and we have a few larger rooms for those that would like a bit more space. Respite care is available on a short-stay basis.

Corridors and communal areas provide themed, visual stimulation, and potted life histories to offer some insight into residents' lives. Personal touches like this help residents feel at home and keep them at the very heart of our care.

Life at Westroyd House Care Home

A carer and a resident

Mum has severe dementia and her behaviour is challenging. She has been at Westroyd Lodge (not house) and her condition has got worse. All the staff are brilliant, the care and attention she receives is superb. In October 2015 she went down hill again, we thought she may have to move but they went the extra mile to ensure she could stay with them; it is her home now and we know how much she loves it there. This is only one incident, during the last year there have been a few, all dealt with professionally and with a huge amount of love and care.

My dad has been at Westroyd since December 2015. I am very pleased with his care, especially since the new manager took over. We have had a few issues but when I approached her she responded immediately. He loves all the staff who work there. The carers are great. The handyman is great too! I would hesitate to recommend to anyone, believe me we looked at some really bad ones.

Northeast-Tea-Dance-December-2016

6 Jan 2017

Residents from 8 Four Seasons care homes in Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they got together for a social afternoon on Wednesday 21st December 2016 at the New Delaval & Newsham Working Men’s Club. They were joined by friends, relatives and staff, and members of the local community.

As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a sing-along session and bingo. There was a range of refreshments served and a chance to take part in a raffle.

Rob Heane, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in Northumberland, said, “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out enjoying themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community. This event is a regular occurrence, and it’s great to see it go from strength to strength each time we run it. Here’s to the next one.”

The afternoon and early evening dances, with a civilised break for tea and refreshments, are coming back into vogue. Before the 1950s, tea dances were a popular way to socialise; however, they declined in the 60s as the club and disco scene emerged. They are now beginning to make a return to popularity, possibly linked to the success of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
