Our new complex needs care home, Blackmoor, will open in Autumn 2021 and will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with a range of complex and high acuity care needs.
Construction of the home started in March 2020, by contractor Walter Thompson, and is due to be completed in Autumn 2021, bringing a range of jobs to the local area in managerial, domestic, nursing, catering and caring roles.
The home, located in the Tile Cross area of Birmingham, will have 30 large bedrooms - each with an en suite wet room - spread over three floors and surrounded by large landscaped gardens. It'll care for 30 adults living with a range of complex needs including people living with a brain injury, neuro-disability, spinal injury, physical disability and mental health conditions.
Blackmoor has three 10-bed units, which supports up to 30 adults - all three units have the provision for bariatric care.
- Tolkien Unit is our 10-bed male-only community, for adults aged over 18 years (with no upper age limit). Supporting those with complex mental health needs, dementia, neuro-disability, complex physical health needs and behaviours of concern.
- James Brindley Unit is our 10-bed mixed community for adults over the age of 18 years, supporting those with complex mental health needs, early-onset dementia, brain injury and neuro-disability.
- Bourneville Unit is our 10-bed mixed community for those over the age of 18 years. Supporting those with complex physical health needs (tracheostomy, PEG and ventilation), neurorehabilitation, spinal injury and neuro-disability.
Care and nursing jobs at Blackmoor
When open, Blackmoor will bring over 150 jobs to the local area. We're now starting to recruit in a range of roles including Health Care Assistants, Registered Nurses, Senior Nurses and support staff such as Maintenance, Kitchen and Housekeeping.
"Blackmoor will provide holistic care and support for people with complex needs through an in-house multi-disciplinary team. There’s a communal hub area which will be a central area for activities and events within the home, as well as a sensory room, salon, therapy areas and a landscaped large outdoor space.
There will also be a visitor’s bedroom where loved ones can spend the night when visiting their relatives. I think this is a wonderful addition to the home as keeping connected with others is extremely important for our service users."
Kerry Hill, Commissioning Home Director of Blackmoor
