Westall House is a great environment for my father. He participates in the wealth of activities provided and has benefitted hugely from the two years he has lived there. The care staff cannot be praised enough for their enthusiasm and friendliness. But more than that, they have genuine empathy for those in their care. Residents can be as independent as they wish and/or are capable of. When my time comes, I hope there is a place there for me.
