The Willows is purpose-built, set it its own secure grounds surrounded by gardens and patio areas, with ground-floor, easy-access, en-suite bedrooms and bright, airy communal areas including a Bistro and a Conservatory/Orangery. Inside you will find a quiet, informal atmosphere where residents choose their own lifestyle and are free to express themselves. We aim to build confidence and bring peace of mind to residents and their relatives. Friends and family are welcome to visit whenever they like.


The Willows is one of a group of three privately-owned residential care homes, with locations in Cumbria, Merseyside and Lancashire. As a small family, we work closely together, creating a culture of participation where staff help each other maintain supportive, caring environments for our residents. Our homes exist for the benefit of our residents; we are ‘home from home’ where residents are assured of safety and comfort. Our objectives are to support our residents in enjoying life and in maintaining their dignity, independence and individuality.
