Willow Gardens Residential and Nursing Home in Merseyside

St Edmonds Road, Bootle, Merseyside, L20 7HF
Nursing care
Palliative care
Residential care
Respite care

Close to the town centre, Willow Gardens is a home with a wonderful family feel and a fantastic reputation in the Bootle community. Many of our residents grew up here and in the wider Sefton area and because we are known for providing an exceptionally high standard of care; many choose to stay in the area so they can live here.

With a team which provides residential, nursing, palliative and respite care, as our residents’ needs change over time, we have the experience to meet those needs every step of the way. Some members of the team have been with our residential and nursing home for over 10 and even 20 years, providing the continuity of care and familiar and comforting faces that are so important to our residents, and of course those closest to them.

Keeping active in later life

A ten-minute drive from Liverpool city centre, the home has extremely strong links with the Bootle community. Our residents frequently receive visits from youngsters who attend the local college, as well as a gospel choir who fill the residential and nursing home with truly magical sounds. Toddlers from the local nursery are regular visitors, and enjoy singing and doing arts and crafts with the residents. People from local church groups across the Sefton area also visit to carry out religious services, especially for our residents.

Outside the home, there is so much to do. Some of our residents love to visit the Museum of Liverpool. There are also excursions to Southport Beach as well as Martin Mere Wetland Centre and Knowsley Safari Park. At the end of the summer, we are also planning a trip to see the Blackpool Illuminations.

Willow Gardens is run by manager Carol McMillan, who has 20 years’ experience in the care sector. Carol’s passion is promoting living well in later life through active ageing. She whole-heartedly believes that with excellent nutrition and hydration, first-class care as well as fulfilling and engaging activities that stimulate the mind and body, people living in residential and nursing homes can live life to the full.

At Sanctuary Care our number one priority is to keep our residents, their relatives and our staff safe.

With the increasing number of reported cases of Coronavirus in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to minimise all non-essential visits to our residential and nursing homes until further notice. These include routine visits from loved ones and friends, entertainers, hairdressers, volunteers, work experience students and school parties.

We have not taken this decision lightly and understand this will be upsetting for relatives who want to visit loved ones. We do feel this is the best way to keep our residents safe and is one of many proactive, preventative measures we are taking to stop this infection getting into our homes.

We do hope you understand why we are taking these precautions. Please don’t hesitate to call if you would like to speak to us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
