Westmoreland Care and Rehabilitation Center recently participated in a disaster preparedness drill. We are very appreciative to the Sumner County EMS, Westmoreland Fire Department and the Westmoreland Police Department for their assistance with this training. It was a great experience for our staff to come together with emergency responders within the community to train and prepare for a disaster.

Mack and Tamara Clark came to Westmoreland Care and Rehab from Kingsport TN. Tamara and Mack have both been in other facilities in the past and have been pleasantly surprised about the culture at Westmoreland Care and Rehab.
Mack is a Vietnam Veteran and has been happy with the amount of freedom, choices, and activities that are offered to him. He is very involved in facility life and enjoys running the bingo program and makes morning announcements to the other elders and stakeholders regarding daily activities and words of wisdom for the day. Mack states that the employees at Westmoreland Care and Rehab “go above and beyond” and states that this is the “best facility I have ever been at”.
Tamara is also very involved in facility life. She participates in most of the facility activities that are offered and enjoys going shopping and out to eat with the Quality of Life Department. Tamara states that she loves the food and states “this is the only facility I have been at where I have choices, and can order special orders, or even fresh vegetables”. She concurs with her husband that the staff at Westmoreland Care and Rehab go above and beyond. She states that, “the staff here really care about me”.
We honored five hometown heroes Thursday night. We honored Tabatha Clark, Lema Hollond, The Mays, Chester Taylor, and Carlos Laycock. We would like to thank all the family members, stakeholders, dietary department for all they do. We would also like to give a special thank you to our guest speaker David Mitchell and the Westmoreland High School Choir.
