“What a lovely place! From the first reassuring phone call with the care home manager to the welcome my husband received on his arrival, my heart was lifted. The atmosphere in this home is happy and relaxed – a real home from home. One day I arrived at lunchtime to deliver some pyjamas and the smell of food was gorgeous and I was struck by the quiet chatter of contented residents. That says it all!” Wife of resident
Walstead Place love learning as much they can about the people they care for, so residentâ’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests, and preferences.
“The care home manager sat and talked to me and was interested in my husband’s history and present situation and her assistant was equally caring to me when resolving any issues as a result of a mix-up by the local G.P.”
“There are activities every day – and I now feel part of a happy family too. The carers are wonderfully supportive in promoting independence and dignity.”
Jacquie Ferguson, Home Manager at Walstead Place says: “We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen.”
Wife of resident continues to say: “The managers and admin staff are always available to answer any questions and give their time to me. I feel so happy and relieved to know my husband is happy and settled and is being looked after so well.”
Walstead Place Care Home provides residential care on a permanent or short stay basis. For more information or to arrange a tour of the home, call the friendly team on 0808 223 5543.
