Ever since we were founded in 1992 we’ve taken great pride in our values. Today, we continue to reflect these values in the way we care, the way we act and the way we operate on a day-to-day basis. 

Quality, Respect, Integrity and Service are the values which Westward Care bring to our independent living facilities

As well as having a 24-hour emergency call system with on-site response and attendance, there are also additional care and support packages available which can be tailored to suit individual requirements.

Some people are very independent and purchase a Retirement Apartment for the reassurance of having support 24 hours a day if, or when they need it. Meanwhile, clients with greater care needs can access exactly what they need, when they need it.

The advantages of this model are many. You own your own home, thus you retain your assets; you don’t have to pay to rent; and you only access services such as care, meals, laundry etc when required which substantially reduces the fees you would pay for full time care.

This service is provided by Westward Care, one of Leeds most respected health and social care providers. Offering a proven track record in providing award-winning care and support to older people, with highly trained and qualified staff and a focus on quality of life and quality of care.
