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.

If music be the food of love, play on. This was certainly the case at Westroyd House Care Home in Shepshed as residents made their own melodies playing with musical instruments and creating their own Big Band.

Cara Frayling, Home Manager, explained: “The residents had the opportunity to get hands on with some musical instruments. The Westroyd House Big Band was born. Everyone had a lot of fun and some interesting melodies were made. Watch out Britain’s Got Talent, Westroyd House’s Big Band will be heading your way soon.”

Westroyd-House-Care-Home-Shepshed-DCF-Accreditation

27 Feb 2017

Westroyd House Care Home in Shepshed has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.

The care team at Westoyd House Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.

The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.

The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an event for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them on Tuesday 21st February 2017 with a very special party.

Sam Jacobs, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the East of England said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”

In addition to the support and training, there are three additional components to the Dementia Care Framework – personal care reviews, Resident and Family Charters.

At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.

Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.

The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments. The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.

The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.

Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
