Situated in the picturesque area of Sleepers Hill in Winchester, Westacre Nursing Home is registered with the Care Quality Commission as a care home. Westacre provides care for older people with physical care needs and those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
The original home is a charming Edwardian building with many original features. In recent years there have been two significant extensions to the home which means it is now fully equipped to provide modern nursing care, combining character and charm with functionality.
The home provides care for 50 residents with a dedicated team of nursing and care staff. Trained nurses include RGNs and RMNs, available at all times, including out of hours. With additional support from Senior Nurse Management or a Clinical Nurse Specialist, Mental Health and Home Manager.
At Westacre, we believe that provision of high quality care for vulnerable people should be a fundamental expectation. To achieve these aims, there are four areas upon which we have concentrated to establish the standards of care we wish to provide.
With a holistic approach to care, personal choices are supported with arrangements being made for hairdressing, chiropdy, religious beliefs etc. We encourage friendly well behaved pets to come and visit. We also have ‘PAT’ dogs visiting regularly.
A regular programme of events and activities both from our internal Activities Coordinator and external entertainment provide and interesting and varied day.
