Would recommend Westleigh Lodge, the time my husband has been here he has been very well looked after, all his needs have been catered for professionally, with dignity and patience and understanding.

My husband has only been at the Lodge ten weeks. The staff have been excellent with him. The food is all home made. He is treated with dignity at all times. Before he went in my children and myself visited around ten homes before choosing this one, the best move we made.
