About The Willows Day Service

The Willows Day Centre, in Beechdale, provides facilities and support to people aged over 50 years from various backgrounds. During your first few weeks at The Willows Day Service, we will work closely with you to assess your needs.

Our aim is to support you to work towards your goals and to help you have as much independence as possible. We will also maintain close links with your carers, and give support and advice where needed.

We provide an activity-based service with links to other agencies. We are able to put you in touch with other organisations that can help you. You are assigned a Key worker who will help to settle you into the unit and ensure you get the most out of your attendance at The Willows Day Service.

If you have any problems or issues, please speak to your Key worker.
