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 Dementia Care Framework Plaque

We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.

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.

paint-pots

22 Feb 2017

Residents at Westroyd House Care Home decided to get their paint palettes and easels out last week to create some new artwork for the home.

Cara Frayling, Home Manager, said: “The residents wanted to add a bit of colour to the walls, and thought the best way to do this would be to create their own artwork that we can hang up around the place. Everyone enjoyed themselves with some of the pieces being a little abstract. Everyone is more than welcome to come and view the residents’ artwork if they’re in the area.”

Residents at Westroyd House Care Home in Shepshed got their best baking hats on and made some lovely warm scones to enjoy with jam, clotted cream and a lovely cup of tea.

Cara Frayling, Home Manager, said: “All of the residents enjoyed making the scones. Audrey said she especially enjoyed it, although I think most of the fun was in the tasting. All of the other residents enjoyed the scones, with no crumbs left for anyone.”

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?

This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.

Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.

Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?

With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.

Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.

Our case studies will focus on:

Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

More information about our intermediate care service and other types of care and support we offer is available on our website.
