Making every day better

As a specialist care service, Willowbeck has an excellent track record of successfully helping those who have had failed placements previously. Our high staffing levels enable us to work as people’s own pace and build trust, which leads to longer term, person-centred outcomes.

We care for some of the most complex and acute individuals, who would often be in a hospital setting if not placed with us, enabling them to stay in the community and reducing hospital and secure facility admission. Many of the people we support have been deemed to have behaviours that are considered ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care services.

All of our care and nursing colleagues complete our Exemplar Positive Behaviour Support (EPBS) training that’s been certificated by Bild ACT, and are supported by our central team of Behaviour Support Specialists. This means that, for many of our service users, we’re successful in achieving a significant reduction in behaviours of concern and use of observations within 12 weeks of stay.

About our care

John moved to Willowbeck following a severe road traffic accident in 2011 that resulted in a significant brain injury. When John first moved to the home, he was unable to move his limbs, experienced no verbal or non-verbal communication and had a PEG feeding tube. The specialist supported John with his rehabilitation and he’s now able to move his limbs, has had his PEG removed and shows non-verbal communication through laughing and smiling. With this support, John has now moved to a lower acuity service that’s nearer to his family.
