Our aim here at Westfield house is to offer a very high standard of nursing care without losing our precious family home style atmosphere. We are shortly to begin building works to add an extension to Westfield House which will improve facilities within the home to communal areas, the medication room and also to the laundry.
Situated in Killinghall, very close to Harrogate, Westfield is a beautiful stone house that has been converted to provide nursing care for up to 30 residents. It is close to the lovely spa town of Harrogate, as well as to local shops and facilities. It has a lovely garden for our residents to enjoy to the rear.
Our food is tasty a choice of menu available at every mealtime. We offer an excellent range of individually prepared and nutritionally balanced texture modified meals for residents who have swallowing difficulties and an extensive range of snacks and drinks is available at all times.
Visitors are welcome at any time and if you would like to come and have a meal with your loved-one just let us know.
The information in the ‘types of care’ section of our website is general, and gives an example of some of the conditions and illnesses that we have experience with, however it is by no means exhaustive. In addition it is not uncommon for older people to experience more than one illness- for example a person with dementia may also suffer from arthritis, or have had a stroke.
Each person is an individual with different requirements, and all potential residents are fully assessed to ensure that we are able to meet their individual needs before we offer a placement.
With our experienced care team, we are able to care for people living with many different types of illnesses and conditions. Our staff are well trained and our buildings are designed to help residents to maintain their independence as much as possible. All of our homes have at least one passenger lift and are fully equipped in terms of safety, from individual call buzzers to specialised individual call systems for people who are unable to use their call buzzers.
All of our homes have both communal and quieter, more private spaces for our residents to enjoy, and benefit from many types of aids and adaptations to help our residents live as full and independent a life as possible.
The obvious love and care for all residents adds to the very homely atmosphere, and the manager works hard to ensure that all residents’ needs are catered for.
