At Willowcroft, we strive to improve services user’s life’s so that they can lead an independent and could would fulfilling life.
Our state of art care home offers the latest in luxurious living: All bedrooms have en-suite facilities. We work closely with market leaders in the architectural and design industries to create home environments that enable people who are living with Mental Health Conditions and Dementia to find their way around independently. We have a design team whose job it is to ensure that there are similarities of approach to design across all our homes and that we’re meeting the necessary standards.
We use this background to create supportive and enabling environments that preserve each resident’s sense of identity in a way that feels right for them. This may involve personalising a room or filling a memory box, whatever it takes to make the move to a new home as smooth as possible for residents and their loved ones.
The Willowcroft team spend a lot of time getting to know the residents as individuals; which allows the team to tailor the care and support around the resident’s needs.
We continually work with our residents and families in maintaining life skills such as cooking, cleaning of own bedroom, helping with shopping and other skills such as riding a bicycle.
