Exemplar gets green light for Walsall specialist nursing home
Exemplar Health Care has been granted planning permission to build a 30-bed care home in Walsall.
The care home will support adults who need specialist nursing care and rehabilitation following a brain injury, spinal cord injury or stroke, or are living with a complex physical disability or mental health condition.
“We’ve worked closely with health and social care authorities in the area and hope 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 specialist care that they need close to their homes and loved ones,” it said in a statement.
“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,” added Charlotte Lloyd, developments director at Exemplar Health Care.
“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.”
Lloyd continued: “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 community events, and where our residents can be part of the community, whether through work placements, local events or volunteering.”
