Complex care at Willowbeck

As a specialist care home, Willowbeck has an excellent track record of supporting adults whose placements have previously failed. Our high staffing levels allow us to build trust and work at the pace of the individual, which leads to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes.

Many of the people we support at Willowbeck are deemed to display behaviours that are ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care providers. Our Nurse-led team has the skills and expertise to support people who display extreme behaviours of concern, including aggressive and sexualized behaviours.

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.
