West Eaton is situated in a rural setting just outside Leominster, but within walking distance of the town centre.
The home has been converted to provide accommodation for 33 residents in both single and double rooms over 2 floors. As a smaller, more personable home, we provide the highest quality of care 24 hours a day in a happy and homely environment.
West Eaton is a long established home, with a stable and experienced staff of nurses. It has an enviable reputation in the area for being a happy and relaxed home, and was a regional winner in the 2013 Great British Care awards. Our home offers both single and shared rooms, with the home being maintained to a high, but homely, standard. The conservatory and gardens are firm favourites to relax in.
I have been a Registered General and Psychiatric nurse since 1983. I worked for the NHS adult mental health until 1988, took a five year gap to raise my children, and returned to nursing in 1993. I have worked predominantly in adult social care in nursing homes since this time. I have previously managed my own homes and achieved my leadership in management in 2010.
I started at West Eaton nursing home as a deputy manager in 2011 and I have been the manager since October 2016. I believe that our Residents at West Eaton have the right to individualised care which meets their assessed needs by friendly, caring staff who try to create a warm, homely and happy atmosphere.
My philosophy of care at West Eaton is that every individual is unique, and has his or her own special needs, which include the right to choice, dignity, independence and the highest quality of life possible.
We have long-standing and dedicated nursing teams in our homes, with many years of professional experience between them. This has enabled us in a number of our homes to have achieved the highest accreditation for nursing care, the Gold Standard Framework.
We have recently extended the communal area of our home and landscaped the gardens to provide a sensory garden for our residents with raised tubs and a large patio seating area.
