Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our care

Because each of us is unique, we encourage you to choose how your care is planned and delivered at Willow Gardens. We work closely with you and your family, to build a personal picture of your needs. Little things can make a big difference, so we always strive to understand what is important to you. We call it person centred care because it’s built around you or your loved one. It’s there to help you settle in really quickly, with regular reviews to keep things up-to-date.

Dedicated staff ensure care, support and understanding is tailored to your exact needs. They will ensure that you continue to enjoy maximum independence and 24-hour peace of mind, knowing that all the help and assistance you might need is always at hand. All carers employed by Anchor are given intensive training and are required to complete NVQ qualifications and a range of in-house courses to assure you of the best possible care.

Arthritis, stroke, Parkinson’s and Osteoporosis are all conditions that we may suffer from as we age; at Willow Gardens we know how important it is to care for our residents with the dignity and respect they deserve.

To achieve this we have forged partnerships with a range of health and social care specialists. Willow Gardens can organise visits from a GP, district nurse, physiotherapist, chiropodist or holistic therapist, as well as arrange visits to the dentist and optician as needed.

We provide high quality care and support for residents living with dementia by treating them as individuals. All of our employees are trained and supported by our dedicated dementia team to ensure residents feel valued and able to live life to the full. Ever ready to offer support to family and friends via access to information and advice, their approach respects the uniqueness of each person rather than focusing on the diagnosis of dementia.

Meet the team

At Willow Gardens we have a caring team of well qualified professionals, passionate about what they do and dedicated to ensuring our residents always feel confident that they can rely on a friendly face and helping hand 24-hours a day.
