Leading provider of specialist nursing care for adults living with complex needs, Exemplar Health Care, has gained planning permission for a £4.9m care home in Birmingham.
The home, which is Exemplar’s third in Birmingham, will support 30 adults who need specialist nursing care and are living with a complex physical disability or mental health conditions.
Charlotte Lloyd, Commissioning Director at Exemplar Health Care, said: “We’re pleased to announce we are investing in a second specialist care home for the Birmingham area.
“This community-based home will provide person-centred 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 Blackmoor become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for Blackmoor to be a place where we host community events, and where our residents can be part of the community, whether through work placements, local events or volunteering.”
The home will be equipped top-to-bottom to meet the needs of its new residents, which will also include additional work to reduce noise from the nearby airport. Every bedroom will come with an en-suite wet room, and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy.
In addition to providing a supportive community-based service for residents living at Blackmoor, around 100 jobs are expected to be created, ahead of the official opening in May 2021.
