Leading provider of specialist nursing care for adults living with complex and high acuity needs, Exemplar Health Care, has gained planning permission for a £4.1m care home in Wallasey, Merseyside.
Edgewater, which will be Exemplar Health Care’s fourth home in the north-west, will support 30 adults who need specialist nursing care and rehabilitation following a neuro-disability, brain injury, spinal injury or stroke, or are living with a complex physical disability or mental health condition.
Charlotte Lloyd, Developments Director at Exemplar Health Care, said: “We’re pleased to announce we are investing in another specialist care home for the Wirral 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 Edgewater become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for Edgewater 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.”
Every bedroom will come with an en-suite wet room, and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, sensory and therapy room and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy. The home will also have its own trained in-house team of nursing specialists and therapeutic team so that adults living with complex needs can access holistic care in a community-based home.
In addition to providing a supportive community-based service for residents living at Edgewater, over 100 jobs are expected to be created, ahead of the official opening in summer 2022.
