My husband was in dementia care for 18 months here before he passed away on 12th of this month. It is a modern, bright and cheerful place and the staff are so presentable and friendly towards residents and their families. It is clean, warm and the food is good.
Woodlands Westhoughton care home has always cared for my Mum's needs. The staff always appear to be well informed and extremely professional and find time to discuss any needs for Mum or assistance we may need. I would recommend Woodlands Westhoughton to nay family and friends.
