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. Plus there are splendid shared gardens for all residents to relax in.

Standard accommodation is a single room with en-suite, and we have a few larger rooms should any of our residents feel they'd prefer to share.

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.

When Old Vicarage resident Yvette Weinberg moved in to the home last October, her artistic daughter Natalie Leigh wanted to make the transition for her mum as easy as possible. So with the support of Home Manager, Pauline Clews, Natalie set about personalising the room to make it feel homely and comfortable.

“I wanted to make my mum’s room an enjoyable space for her and for me when I visit, the best way I could do this was to use familiar pieces of furniture and ornaments and paint the room in ‘happy’ colours. I also thought about all the things she used to like to do, such as sitting at a table next to a window and I rearranged the room so that she could still do this. A favourite mirror was my initial inspiration and my ideas grew from there. “

She made such a good job that Natalie’s interior design skills were soon used to decorate the corridors of the home. “Natalie is incredibly artistic and has made areas of our home more interesting and brighter for residents to enjoy,” commented Pauline Clarke. “It is important to us here at The Old Vicarage that residents live in a safe and homely environment surrounded by things that make them feel happy so it is always lovely to get support from family members such as Natalie.”

International nurse's day

20 May 2015

At Four Seasons Health Care we're proud of our nurses and appreciate the care and compassion they demonstrate in our care homes. To recognise the great job they do every day of the year we marked International Nurses’ Day on 12th May. To help with the celebrations, this year we sent all our nurses a
box of chocolates and a thank you card from our CEO, Tim Hammond.

Nurses’ Day is an important opportunity to celebrate the enormous contribution that nursing staff make every single day. For the past 50 years the celebration has taken place on 12th May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

We believe that good care starts with having the right people to deliver it. We work hard to ensure we’re recruiting the right people, and invest in training and development to encourage them to stay – our aim is to be the best place to work in the care sector.
