A Modern
Home Providing
Specialist Care

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

The West Gate, formerly known as The Hockeredge, 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.


About us

At the West Gate we are committed to provide a person centred approach to round the clock personal care and companionship with warmth and compassion, safety and competence. By delivering a range of flexible support services we will ensure people with challenging needs are as independent as possible.

By listening to our residents and their loved ones and understanding what matter to the, we ensure that we deliver exceptional residential care and support.

The West Gate is conveniently located a five minute walk away from the small coastal town of Westgate-on-Sea and offers easy access to shops, cafes, cinema, library and churches, as well as the sea-front gardens, promenade walks and safe beaches of Margate.

Our approach to care changes along with the needs of each client, helping them to feel safe, secure and part of the community offered at The West Gate.
