I visit twice a day, one or two hours at a time. Have seen what goes on each shift, any problems dealt with straight away. Owner calls regularly, all day checks on all patients, talks to visitors, asks if any complaints or if anything can be improved. Four staff have been at Westerleigh over 15 years, have had detailed conversations with them. Well qualified RN sisters on all shifts. I'm happy for my wife to be at Westerleigh. She has Parkinsons, type 2 diabetes, deep vein thrombosis, pace maker and Alzeimers.
