Westdale is a home for men and women over retirement age, who are unable to cope with the responsibility of complete independence.

The atmosphere is that of a friendly community in which each person’s privacy is respected.

Westdale Care Home is a registered residential care home, owned and managed by the Westdale Quaker Housing Association, set up on the initiative of local members of The Society of Friends (Quakers). It is a non-profit making organization and has charitable status.

The home is in spacious gardens, situated in a pleasant and level area of West Bridgford with easy access to shops and bus stop. The home accommodates 18 residents in single en suite rooms of varying size on the ground and first floor.

Rooms are cleaned / beds changed by domestic staff, but residents are encouraged to share in light duties, such as making their beds if possible, and keeping their room tidy.

A beautician comes into the home every five weeks. Charges are direct if required. A hairdresser comes in weekly. Charges are direct if required.Special diets are catered for where possible.

A small selection of activities include classes for keep fit, movement to music, craft, poetry and baking. We also have a gardening club and residents meetings to keep everyone up to date on current topics.

Concerts and other entertainments are organised at the home. The home owns its own minibus and trips out are organised. Parties occur at Christmas and other festivals. Religious services from various denominations are held within the home on a weekly basis.

Residents are encouraged to participate in Residents meetings and through questionnaires, ensuring that their views on all aspects of the home are considered and the services it provides are maintained to a high standard.

The home operates an ‘open door’ policy where residents sign out when leaving the premises with no restrictions.
