MHA has provided dementia care services at Westbury since 1989 in partnership with the local Primary Care Trust and Council. Westbury Grange was MHA’s first home to provide a high quality service specifically for older people with dementia. With an emphasis on person-centred care, Westbury has specially trained staff to build relationships and ensure that each individual can choose how they wish to spend their time and express themselves. Small-group living creates a homely environment where everyday living skills can be continued, and safe access to outside areas encourages people to continue enjoying fresh air and being outdoors.
MHA’s person-centred ethos includes families. “Some relatives stay all day or come for lunch on Sunday,” writes one staff member. “Many regard Westbury as their second home and some still visit despite losing their loved one some years ago.”
More than two decades on, following the development of the site, residents moved next door to a newly refurbished and extended care home with dementia care and nursing faciliities, renamed Westbury Grange. The original care home has made way for purpose-built apartments known as The Limes for individuals and couples, one or both of whom need 24-hour care. In this way the person-centred care and choice that informs day to day activities is also being placed at the heart of major change and opportunity.
