New £5m care home opens

Published

on

A new £5million state-of-the-art specialist care home has been opened by Exemplar Health Care.

Wykewood has been opened in Wyke, Bradford, and is the first care home opened in the area by Exemplar Health Care, which provides specialist nursing care for adults living with complex needs.

The home will support up to 40 adults and specialise in supporting people living with complex mental health needs, neuro-disabilities, brain injuries, spinal injuries, Huntington’s disease and complex dementia. 

Exemplar Health Care supports some of the most complex and acute individuals, who would often be in a hospital setting if not placed with them, enabling them to stay in the community and reducing hospital and secure facility admission. 

Specialist nursing care for adults living with neuro-disabilities

Wykewood has the facilities to provide specialist nursing care for people living with a neuro-disability or neurodegenerative disorder. 

The home has 40 large bedrooms, each with an en-suite, across four ten-bed units. This small group living provides a homely and supportive environment, which is more responsive to people’s needs – including the Thistle Suite which is a male-only environment.

The home includes the Lavender Suite, which supports up to ten adults living with complex health needs and mixed diagnoses, including neuro-disabilities, brain injuries, physical disabilities and those who have tracheostomies, ventilators and PEG feeding. 

Being on the ground floor and with garden access rooms, it’s ideal for those living with Huntington’s Disease.

The service also benefits from communal dining and living spaces as well as a cafe, therapy room, sensory room, salon and a large accessible garden.

Wykewood provides a supportive environment where people can receive the specialist nursing care that they need and remain closer to their loved ones. 

The home hosts a restaurant-style dining menu which is developed with service users at quarterly Food Forums. This ensures that menus are varied, interesting and available to everyone, taking into account personal preferences, condition-specific and religious dietary requirements.

“It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 40 local people with complex health needs” 

Sharon Burton, the Commissioning Director of Wykewood, shares: “I’m delighted and proud that Wykewood will support Wyke’s community. We at Exemplar Health Care know the Bradford area well, having two fantastic, high-quality homes already in Leeds. We’ve also closely consulted with local Clinical Commissioning Groups and the council to understand the keen demand for a specialist care service like Wykewood in the area.”

“It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 40 local people with complex health needs, and to provide over 150 stable and local jobs for those wanting to progress their careers,” she added.

Holistic care in a community-based home

Exemplar Health Care’s holistic approach to care ensures that people get the right care, at the right time and by the right team, the first time round.

They work with individuals, their loved ones and professionals to decide how they want to live, and design a care plan that’s individually tailored to their needs and goals.

Wykewood has a dedicated and a trained team of Registered Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Life Skills Coordinators and Therapists, including Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. 

The home’s high staffing levels enable the team to work at people’s own pace and build trust, which leads to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes.

The home will also have access to Exemplar Health Care’s central clinical team, Consultant Psychiatrist and Behaviour Support Specialists. 

This enables people to access holistic care in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.
