Successful Care Home Open Week Welcomes Local Community Across the Group

Westgate Healthcare is delighted to announce the successful conclusion of our annual Care Home Open Week, held from Monday 24th June to Friday 28th June. The week’s programme of events was a significant success, welcoming numerous families, community members, and professionals across the group.

Event Highlights:

  • Burford House Care Home, Chorleywood held a cheese and wine evening, cocktail making session and had an end of week party for all to enjoy.
  • Chestnut Manor Care Home, Wanstead held a popular Arts and Crafts Fair where local community members could purchase a variety of goods whilst enjoying the surroundings and hospitality amongst our residents.
  • St Pauls Care Centre, Hemel Hempstead held a variety of activities including a performance by Dacorum Dance and had a lovely vintage afternoon tea party in the sunshine.
  • Riverdale Care Home, Braintree had a presentation by the local Essex Fire Museum and the Community Police popped in to show their support, amongst activities such as the popular quiz night, Pilates, and a beach party.


The response from local communities was overwhelmingly positive. Families appreciated our transparency and the chance to interact directly with our dedicated team members. Many visitors expressed their satisfaction with the high standards of care and the welcoming atmosphere they experienced during their visits.

  • Engaging Tours: Visitors enjoyed guided tours of our state-of-the-art facilities, experiencing first-hand the warm and welcoming environment we provide for our residents.
  • Interactive Information Sessions: Our professional staff, including caregivers, nurses, and activity coordinators, were available to answer questions and offer detailed insights into the personalised care and services we offer.
  • Engaging Activities: Guests participated in various activities, reflecting the vibrant and active lifestyle our residents enjoy. These included arts and crafts, music sessions, and fitness classes.
  • Personalised Care Discussions: Families had the opportunity to discuss tailored care plans with our experienced team, understanding how we cater to the unique needs of each resident.

“We are incredibly pleased with the turnout and the positive feedback from our Care Home Open Week,” said David Martins, Head of Sales. “It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the hard work and dedication of our team members, and to connect with families looking for the best care options for their loved ones. We believe in maintaining an open dialogue with our community and ensuring that everyone has access to the information they need to make informed care decisions.”

Westgate Healthcare is committed to providing exceptional care and a nurturing environment for elders. In addition to our eight locations across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and London, we are looking forward to the opening of Meadowhill, our new 75-room luxury, state-of-the-art care home in Borehamwood in 2025.  We offer a range of services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our residents.
