Home Update – Tuesday 30th June 2020

Its been a busy, but different last few months here at Westcroft Nursing Home. We are still in ‘lockdown’ but that hasn’t stopped Our Residents enjoying day to day life as usual. There have been lots of different activities going on in the Home, carried out by our activities coordinators.

We are grateful to all residents and relatives for their understanding and patience during these unprecedented times. We are hoping for better times in the near future, but must be mindful that Our Residents are protected at all times.

Our staff have been amazing throughout this pandemic, coming in everyday and caring for Our Residents, working with smiles on their faces. They have all shown that they will not be defeated by this ‘virus’.

We are hopeful that we will be open for visiting soon, but please do bear with us and we will update with further news as soon as we have any.
