Renfrewshire care home unveils renovated facilities

Westerfield Care Home in Renfrewshire has unveiled a series of renovations aimed at providing an enhanced living environment for its residents.

Located in the town of Paisley, the home, which offers residential, nursing, and dementia care, now boasts upgraded furniture, a refurbished hair salon, and a new private dining room.

Westerfield Care Home is operated by the Handsale care group, which oversees the management of eight residential and nursing care homes across England, Scotland, and Wales.

The home features specialist units staffed with expert teams who provide personalised care for specific requirements, such as dementia. Westerfield Care Home features a secure garden, allowing residents to enjoy quality time outdoors while maintaining their safety.

Home Manager Catherine Galbraith said: “We have seen a real benefit from the integration of residents with dementia into the wider home. Ultimately, we’ve found that matching these residents to specific units has enabled us to have a calm atmosphere within the home.

“For example, if we have someone with an issue with eating and not knowing what to do with the food, they may watch someone else at their table in their unit and copy their actions. The integration, plus the other renovations within the home, has changed and uplifted the care environment, making it the best possible place to live and work.”
