What We Do

Care at Willow Tree Lodge

Willow Tree Lodge specialises in caring for those with early to moderate dementia, but we also care for individual who are no longer able to manage living on their own. On arrival at Willow Tree Lodge we work closely with the resident, and their family to help create a ‘person-centres’ approach to their care. Together with the resident’s GP and other professionals involved in their care, we identify all their needs. This helps us agree objectives, and incorporate the necessary risk assessments.

Our goal is to encourage independence, whilst providing support at all levels to for every aspect of everyday life. As a team we are committed to ensure that all of our residents can make their own choices, as well as feeling safe and happy in their new home environment.

Our Care Team ensure that the best care is delivered, as well as ensuring they maintain a luxury home environment. We always ensure that we work with our clients to promote their well-being.

Hannah Dear is the Registered Manager and has worked in the care industry for all her adult working life spending 18 years at her previous role.  She has worked her way up from a Carer to Home Manager over this period.

During her time in the industry, Hannah has obtained a myriad of care related qualifications, including her  Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management.  She joined us in Willow Tree Lodge in September 2021, and became the Registered Manager a few months later, where we hope she will remain for a long time.

Hannah is supported by a Deputy Manager, also called Hannah. They are proud of their committed team of  Senior Carers and Care Staff, all striving to ensure that our residents are treated with respect and dignity. They continue to provide our residents with the best quality of life possible, whilst maintaining their independence.  We also could not run the home without our excellent Housekeeping, Catering and Administrative staff.

All of our staff have an on-going programme of training and development. This enables them to plan and deliver the appropriate care to meet the individual needs of our residents.
