Welcome to Willowbeck
Willowbeck is a nurse-led home for working aged adults requiring non-acute spinal injury care and complex physical disability care. Located in North-East Sheffield, Willowbeck is a caring, welcoming and truly person-centred home.
At Willowbeck, our highly specialist team builds care and activity plans around a person, not their condition. We support and encourage people to be happy, fulfilled and involved in their care.
Spinal injury rehabilitation
Opened in September 2018, the new physical rehabilitation unit at Willowbeck provides specialist spinal injury care in a comfortable environment built for rehabilitation and recovery.
The Willowbeck team deliver specialist care and support, which focuses on restoring independence and developing functional skills.
We believe that people should have choice and control over their care, and work together with our service users to set goals, which might include:
- Using a wheelchair safely and effectively
- Sourcing and using innovative IT solutions to aid independence and meet goals
- Undertaking all aspects of daily living
- Returning home
We work in partnership with other organisations, including spinal injury professionals, so referrals can be made for ongoing peer support.
Recently opened, the OneCare service at Willowbeck provides six additional ensuite bedrooms, which have been developed within the main care home but are accessed separately via a private entrance. Shared living spaces include a kitchen, lounge and dining room enabling service users to interact with one another and develop and maintain their life skills.
The OneCare service can be adapted to suit the individual needs of service uses based on personal tastes, condition, functionality and medication regime. Willowbeck encourages service users to work towards achieving their personal goals. Supported by specialist nurses and life-skills teams, service users can further progress their journey to independence whist still having the support of the main home as and when they require.
Service users at Willowbeck are cared for in one of seven units depending on their unique needs. The Ladybower unit provides care for people living with a range of complex needs arising from brain injuries and neurodegenerative conditions. This includes tracheostomy management and ventilated care.
Torside provides specialist support for service users with complex physical needs.
Rivelin is Willowbeck’s all male unit providing care and support for individuals with mental ill-health needs and Howden is for both men and women requiring mental ill-health support.
Derwent provides care for those with complex needs and challenging behaviour.
Abberton is a new physical rehabilitation unit specialising in spinal care, providing the ideal environment for recovery and rehabilitation.
Thirlmere is a newly developed OneCare unit where individuals can live independently or with support depending on their needs.
A full-time registered physiotherapist and therapy assistant work in the dedicated therapy room which is fully equipped to provide a range of exercises and multidisciplinary therapy.
