Westwood Care Group specialises in caring for individuals who have profound, complex and multiple needs as well as learning and physical disabilities. The group operates small residential care homes in and around Hull where residents benefit from modern living spaces and specialist facilities.
The services provided by each of the care homes are designed to help achieve positive outcomes for each individual resident. Green Route Media worked with Westwood Care Group in 2015 to deliver a website that would provide information on the care homes run by the group and the care services available to its residents.
Focused on providing person centred care services, the staff at Westwood Care Group didn't have enough time to maintain an active website. The group required a solution that would allow its staff to continue and focus on what matters most - the needs of its residents.
The group requested that the website be flexible in that it could be easily adapted to accommodate the addition of extra care homes as they expand. Detailed information covering the care services, facilities and staff of each care home needed to be made available to visitors of the website in an easy to follow manner. It was also required that the website featured the Care Quality Commission's (CQC's) latest inspection status of each care home.
Our solution was to develop a website based on WordPress, a popular content management system (CMS) providing powerful features. Our design took a clean and minimalist approach and we developed a dedicated area inside the WordPress dashboard where new care homes could be added and the information on existing care homes could be edited.
Each care home has a dedicated page with various tabs providing the necessary information covering the care services, facilities and staff of each home. We also incorporated a live feed of the CQC's latest inspection status, allowing visitors to see the overall rating of each individual care home. All this has resulted in an informative website that's both easy to read and navigate.
To allow the staff at Westwood Care Group focus on providing person centred care services, the company chose to outsource the management of the website to Green Route Media. As a result, we now maintain the content of the website, helping to keep information both current and relevant. As part of the project, we also delivered a separate website for the group's sister company Westwood Care & Support Services which featured a similar design to keep consistent branding between the two companies.
I am so pleased with the finished result of both our websites. Nothing was ever too much trouble and James was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. We will be working with Green Route Media on an ongoing basis to keep our websites fresh and up to date.
