Construction of Wytham Lodge, our latest multi-million-pound complex care home in Burnley is underway.

Due to open in 2024, the home will provide nursing care for adults living with complex and high acuity needs.

Work started on Wytham Lodge in Padiham, Burnley last month by Triton Construction. When complete, the home will have 34 bedrooms, split into three units. As small group living provides a more homely, supportive, and responsive care environment.

Each of the 34 bedrooms will have its own en-suite wet room. The home will have communal dining and living spaces, sensory bathrooms, an activities hub and will be surrounded by landscaped gardens. There is a dedicated therapy room offering holistic therapeutic care and support led by the in-home Therapy Team.
