Westerleigh Care Home is situated in Stanley, County Durham, close to the local market. An ex-colliery village, Stanley has a very friendly, warm and close-knit community feel to it.

The staff at Westerleigh are warm and friendly and visitors comment on how welcoming they are. Their interaction with residents is very ‘hands-on’ and they treat them like their own family. It is genuinely true to say that their residents are loved.

A lot of emphasis is placed on activities to keep the residents stimulated, with things like exercises, excursions, picnics, movie night, dominoes and painting. There is a local market every Thursday which some residents like to attend and a few go to the pub now and then.

Staff, like to build a close relationship with residents', families and friends and have an open door policy for them.

The residents also get involved in the running of the home and help with the post, gardening and many other activities.

Links with the community are encouraged and groups come in from local schools, colleges and churches.
