100 jobs created following £4.9m investment at care home

Specialist nursing care home provider Exemplar Health Care is launching its fifth care home in West Midlands this autumn following a £4.9m investment.

The facility will support 30 adults living with a brain injury, neuro-disability, spinal injury, physical disability or mental health conditions

Located on Blackmoor Croft, near Birmingham city centre, Blackmoor will support 30 adults living with a brain injury, neuro-disability, spinal injury, physical disability or mental health conditions.

Kerry Hill, commissioning home director, from Exemplar Health Care, said: “I’m delighted to be opening Exemplar Health Care’s third care home in the Birmingham area, supporting 30 adults living with complex and high acuity needs – and to have created over 100 new jobs for the local area.

“Every one of our care homes provides supportive, welcoming, community-based services which help individuals reach their goals. Working in social care can be extremely rewarding, and Exemplar Health Care is already offering stable and secure careers to more than 3,200 people.

“As well as providing employment opportunities, there are plans in place to help Blackmoor become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for Blackmoor 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.”
