About The White House
The team of carers at The White House show genuine love and dedication for those they care for. The White House is a loving, happy home that provides 24-hour care and support for nine adults with a learning disability, living together in tenanted accommodation.
The working culture of The White House is that of treating all those that live there as an extension of the team’s own family and involving the families of the residents in this extended household. Regular weekly lunches, with an open-door policy for all families to visit and get involved in family-life at The White House are just some of the ways this culture is put into practice.
The care team at The White House demonstrate this love and care through the team spirit they show in their working-life. A huge part of life at The White House is living a happy, meaningful and fulfilled life encouraging those that live there to take up meaningful activities. Those that live at The White House enjoy a range holidays and activities from foreign cruises to UK city breaks to plays and concerts – life is full and enjoyed by all at The White House.
Mike Vincent, the brother of Stan who has lived with us at The White House for the past 23 years, said:
“I was elated to find The White House and meet the manager, Ann West. Ann’s vision for a residence that looked and felt like a family home but with dedicated care that refreshed during the day as staff changed shifts (in a way parents couldn’t possibly achieve) was aimed at providing optimal care but with an element of privacy and dignity in a family-home-like setting.
I couldn’t contemplate Stan being anywhere other than where he is properly happy. Stan loves to get out and about and Ann, Pam (Stans primary carer) and the team have made that happen on a regular basis for the entire 23 years. He generally has at least 2 holidays abroad every year, the first often being a Mediterranean cruise and the second a stay in a hotel in Benidorm where they have established a wonderful long term, supportive relationship. But in addition to that, they always seem to be going for days out, to shows and weekends in hotels in Blackpool or Llandudno. Although Stan cannot speak, I can tell you he is absolutely happy and contented at the White House.
Over the 20 plus years, I have frequently been asked by less fortunate families with children having similar needs, how did we find The White House and what is it that makes it such a fabulous place for Stan. I think at the core it starts with the manager, Ann and the team she has collected and nurtured. My sense is that she has fashioned a team with varied but complimentary skills. Ann and her team provide quality care, consistently and continuously.“

A huge thank you for taking care of my brother, I never take for granted that he is so well looked after at The White House. All the staff are like an extended family to us.

It’s always wonderful arriving at The White House and finding my brother looking so well and nicely dressed. I love hearing about his travels and seeing the photos. The recent trips to Edinburgh and Ribby Hall both sound brilliant. The Fjords in June looked fantastic, not to mention Benidorm in the early autumn. He loves getting out and about and loves holidays. I’m so particularly grateful he gets multiple trips a year. A really huge thank you to The White House for making this happen.
- The brother of a resident at The White House
I wish to express the highest possible satisfaction and praise for the staff at The White House, based on 18 years of experience of caring for my sister.

I must take the opportunity of saying how wonderful the team are at The White House are. I’ve been interacting with many of the staff for over 20 years – Ann West & Pam in particular, but many of the others. They are absolutely fantastic. The White House is a wonderful and happy family home (not a care home). That’s down to the staff being wonderful people and working as a fabulous team. I can’t praise them enough.

I cannot tell you how the visit to the White House has restored my faith in the care system. The home was beautifully kept, warm and welcoming and it was so obvious that everyone was content and happy. It represents everything we would all want both for our loved ones and ourselves. This only happens when you have contented, motivated and dedicated staff. Truly inspirational.
- Letter from a visitor to The White House
It was lovely to see you all yesterday and to see how XX was so happy on his birthday. He loved the attention he was getting and is really thriving in the environment he now lives in. Everyone, residents as well as staff, are always so happy and that gives a real lift to the place.
Many, many thanks for this.
