Our mission is to bring hospitality, care, independence and support to our residents.

The West Gate is a modern home providing restful nursing and residential care for those with dementia and mental health illness. Our home offers a warm and caring environment, with a reputation for high standards of care, accommodation and catering of which we are justifiably proud.
