Exemplar celebrates Merseyside opening

Exemplar Health Care has celebrated the official opening of Fernwood care home in Knowsley, Merseyside.

The new home is the result of an extensive refurbishment and extension of the former building, Knowsley Manor. Work began in March 2023. Cutting the ribbon was the Mayor of Knowsley, Councillor Eddie Connor.

Fernwood care home boasts 28 bedrooms – each with an en suite wet room – split across two 14-bed communities. The home has communal dining and living spaces, an activities hub, therapy and consultation rooms, a visitors’ suite, and an accessible garden.

Lindsay Holcroft, commissioning manager at Exemplar Health Care, said: “We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our state-of-the-art care home in Knowsley following an extensive refurbishment of the building. This new home embodies our commitment to providing exceptional care and support to those living with complex care needs.

“We know this type of service is in high demand for individuals and families in the Knowsley area and our dedicated team is looking forward to working with local commissioners, social workers, and families to make a positive difference to people that need long term nursing care and support.”

Valerie Ward, home manager at Fernwood care home, said: “I am deeply committed to creating an environment that fosters inclusivity and empowerment, and I am certain the home will have a profoundly positive impact as we help more people be supported in a homely setting that they can make their own.

“The whole team wants to create a warm and vibrant community where individuals can thrive, families can find support, and where compassionate care is at the forefront of everything we do. We’re still looking for some people to join the Fernwood family who reflect our values and want to be a part of making our residents’ lives better.”
