Whitby Dene is a welcoming, purpose-built care home located in a leafy residential area of Eastcote, Middlesex.
We offer residential and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also provide sensitive and supportive end of life care.
Our friendly and experienced care team gets to know each resident on an individual level, so that we can respond to their specific and unique needs. Our tailored care plans focus on residents' comfort and health, and we treat every person with dignity and respect.
Knowing about residents' life experiences, interests and hobbies also helps us to organise activities and outings that they'll want to take part in. And we promote choice and independence by involving residents in decisions about activities and day-to-day life at the home.
We care for residents' families and friends too – we’re always here with a listening ear and a cup of tea, and we support people who continue to play a part in their loved one's day-to-day care. Families and friends are welcome to visit or call whenever they want and we’re always happy for people to join us for activities and outings.
Working together with Age UK Hillingdon
2014 is a special year for Age UK Hillingdon as we celebrate 25 years of providing a wide range of services to older people in the London Borough of Hillingdon to help keep them empowered, informed and independent for as long as possible. As our population lives longer and medical treatment advances, it is ever more important that services adapt to ever changing needs.
We like to emphasise the positive aspects of ageing – socialising, exercising, eating well, staying fit for the future and helping people to stay in their own homes as long as possible. However, we know only too well that for every positive there is a negative and we are there to help people when they need us most – when they come out of hospital, when they need financial advice, when they need a friend. Whatever situation you might find yourself in, we will be able to help, or direct you to the appropriate organisation who can.
We are very much looking forward to our partnership with Care UK at Whitby Dene, The Burroughs and Franklin House. There is such an obvious link with the aims of both organisations and we truly believe that this is the start of a very special relationship which we hope will continue long into the future.
Thank you once again for your support.
