Specialist nursing care home provider Exemplar Health Care is set to launch its fifth care home in the West Midlands this autumn, following a £4.9m investment.
Blackmoor, which will create over 100 jobs, will support 30 adults living with a brain injury, neuro-disability, spinal injury, physical disability or mental health conditions.
Kerry Hill, Blackmoor’s recently appointed Commissioning Home Director, said: “I’m delighted to be opening Exemplar Health Care’s third care home in the Birmingham area, supporting 30 adults living with complex and high acuity needs – and to have created over 100 new jobs for the local area.
“Every one of our care homes provides supportive, welcoming, community-based services which help individuals reach their goals. With only a few months to go, we’re urging locals to apply for one of our roles. Working in social care can be extremely rewarding, and Exemplar Health Care is already offering stable and secure careers to more than 3,200 people.
“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.”
Ahead of the opening, Exemplar Health Care donated four park benches to a local park in Birmingham, Tilecross Park. The initiative was set up by builders Walter Thompson and Exemplar Health Care, as part of their work with The Tile Cross Resident Group to make Tile Cross a cleaner, greener and safer place to live.
Teresa Minnis, from Tilecross Neighbourhoods Residents, said: “We are incredibly grateful to the team at both Walter Thompson and Exemplar Health Care who have kindly made this happen, successfully donating and installing four park benches right in the heart of our community.”
Blackmoor will feature communal spaces, including landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy. Every bedroom will come with an en-suite wet room and there will be spacious dining areas and bedrooms and a hub/barista area.
