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.

FSHC-TJ-Award-Success-Dec-2017

11 Dec 2017

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.

Who were the winners?

The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.

The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”

The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.

The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”

The CNJ is available to view on the Four Seasons website here.

Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.

The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”

More information about the role of a CHAP is available on the Four Seasons website here.

Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Residents, relatives and the care team at Westroyd House Care Home in Shepshed enjoyed their Monday Mayhem session which saw everyone singing and dancing the afternoon away.

It appeared to be a barking mad Friday, when a four legged friend popped in to say hello to residents at Westroyd House Care Home in Shepshed.

Cara Frayling, Home Manager, said: “Pet Therapy is good for residents as it enables them to get up close and personal with an animal, which can have a soothing effect. Many of our residents had pets before they joined us, so this is a nice little homage to our animal lovers. The dog was a huge success and many of the residents wanted to sneak it away before it went home.”
