A Wigan care home will create more than 150 jobs for the local area when it opens its doors in the autumn.
Exemplar’s Lakeview home in Leigh will provide specialist nursing-led care to 30 adults with complex needs, including people living with dementia, long-term mental ill-health and Huntingdon’s disease.
Manager Jo Roughley, who moved from Exemplar’s home in Liverpool, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response to the home’s opening, and by the amount of interest we’ve had in working with us.
“We’ve filled a number of vacancies already, with applicants revelling in the opportunity to be part of something brand new and to play a role in making it their own.
“It’s a really exciting time to join and we can’t wait to welcome staff and residents over the next few months.”
Jo said the home was particularly interested to hear from mental health and learning disability nurses.
Exemplar provides nursing-led specialist care for adults with complex needs, including neuro-disabilities, profound learning disabilities and autism, mental ill-health, early-onset dementia, brain injury and stroke.
The provider operates homes in 25 locations across the North and West Midlands.
