Complex care at Wykewood

As a specialist care home, Wykewood has an excellent track record of supporting adults whose placements have previously failed. Our high staffing levels allow us to build trust and work at the pace of the individual, which leads to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes.

Many of the people we support at Wykewood are deemed to display behaviours that are ‘too complex’ for mainstream nursing and care providers. Our Nurse-led team has the skills and expertise to support people who display extreme behaviours of concern, including aggressive and sexualized behaviours.

For many of our service users, we’re successful in achieving a significant reduction in behaviours of concern and use of observations within 12 weeks of stay.

About our care

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 over in Leeds. We’ve also closely consulted with local Clinical Commissioning Groups and the council to understand the keen demand for a high-quality home like Wykewood in the area.
