Our plans

Improving care homes in Westminster

In September 2012, Westminster City Council consulted with the public about proposed changes to improve specialist housing for older people in Westminster. 75% of respondents agreed with our proposals which have now been agreed by Westminster City Council, NHS Central London Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group.

The Westminster care homes which will be affected by the changes are:

  • Athlone House
  • Garside House
  • Butterworth Centre
  • Westmead and Carlton Dene.

Why are we making these changes?

Through improving and building new care homes and extra care housing (independent flats with access to 24 hour care) we will:

  • Improve the standard of accommodation and provide ensuite bathrooms for every resident.
  • Provide accommodation which can support people as their needs change so they can stay in their home and not have to move if they become more frail.
  • Have more care homes in Westminster to allow more people to benefit from being cared for close to their friends and families.

As well as improving care homes and providing more extra care housing we are appointing a new care provider in our care homes. A newsletter about the programme can be found here.

The cabinet member decision papers with more details of the proposals are available on the Westminster City Council website.
