The Willows Care Home is designed to provide care for 30 residents; all bedrooms are tastefully decorated to give a relaxing feel. Bedrooms have 24-hour emergency call systems, private washing facilities, telephone and television points. All bedrooms are spacious and for single occupancy. Residents are encouraged to personalize their rooms, making them a true “home from home”.
People may wish to relax in the comfortable and spacious lounge or day room, attractive conservatory overlooking the well tended garden. If the weather is warm enough, individuals can always take some fresh air and a cup of tea in the wheelchair accessible area to view our spectacular pond. Alternatively enjoy the two television lounges or the visitor's lounge for private visits.
Going into a Care Home can be a very difficult time for both the resident and their families therefore life at The Willows is built around the residents. We support relatives as well throughout the duration of their loved ones stay. Visitors are always welcome and with notice to the kitchen, can join their loved one for meals.
All residents are individually assessed both initially and ongoing during their stay at The Willows. This enables us to design a tailored care plan specific to that resident's needs and wherever possible with the support of their family.
