Exemplar Health Care primed for summer opening of Merseyside care home
Exemplar Health Care is set to open this summer the £4.1m Edgewater care home in Wallasey, on Wirral in Merseyside.
Constructed by contractor Pacy & Wheatley, Edgewater will be a specialist care home for adults living with complex and high acuity needs.
Each of the 30 bedrooms will come with an ensuite wet room, and the building will feature a visitor suite, activity, therapy and quiet lounge areas, along with dedicated separate lounge and dining areas on each floor.
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.
“Our aim is to support people in and around Wallasey who are living with a range of complex conditions and are misplaced or remain in hospital settings often for over two years and far away from home, due to the shortage of specialist nursing homes in the area,” said Exemplar Health Care developments director Charlotte Lloyd.
"Edgewater will provide nurse-led care close to home, with a full multi-disciplinary team including physiotherapist and occupational therapist with the home bosting a wide range of communal, therapy and sensory spaces which supports and enables people to live close to home, regain their independence and everyday living skills, and, where possible, move back into their homes in the community,” she added.
