Specialist care provider, Exemplar Health Care, has started construction for its new £4M specialist care home in Walsall, West Midlands.
Exemplar Health Care is one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist nursing care that focuses on maximising independence and empowering those living with complex needs to live as fulfilled lives as possible. Its new home, Shire Oaks Court located on Brownhills Road in Walsall, will be its third in the West Midlands area, and is due to open early 2023 – creating 100 jobs for the local area.
Exemplar Health Care has worked closely with health and social care authorities in the area and hopes to bring this one-of-a-kind facility to Walsall to enable local people who are living with complex needs, or, have suffered an accident to receive the specialist care that they need close to their homes and loved ones.
The home will be equipped top-to-bottom to meet the needs of its new residents. Each of the 30 bedrooms will come with an en-suite wet room, and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, sensory and therapy rooms and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Charlotte Lloyd, Director of Commissioning at Exemplar Health Care, comments: “We’re pleased to announce we are investing in a 30-bed specialist care home for the Walsall area.
“This community-based home will provide person-centered care and rehabilitation that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills, and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.
“It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 30 local people with complex health needs and to provide over 100 stable and local jobs. As well as providing employment opportunities, there are plans in place to help the new care home become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for the home to be a place where we host events, and where our residents can be part of the community, whether through work placements, local events or volunteering.”
Midlands-based Deeley Construction has been appointed to develop the building located on Brownhill Road.
Martin Gallagher, Managing Director of Deeley Construction, said: “It’s fantastic to see our team on site and starting work to create a care home which will be an important asset for the local community.
“This is our first development with Exemplar Health Care and it sees the continued delivery of our healthcare development expertise across the Midlands.
“We have a strong track record of creating facilities that cater for adults with complex needs and we look forward to working in partnership with Exemplar Health Care on this development in Walsall.”
Shire Oaks Court will be situated on Brownhill Road, Walsall.
