Exemplar Health Care’s newest complex needs care home, Tyne Grange, will open this summer in Newcastle - making the new care home our very first in the North East!

Tyne Grange will support 22 adults who live with complex mental and physical health conditions, including neuro-disability and acquired brain injuries.

Conveniently located on Grainger Park Road, Tyne Grange is near Newcastle city centre, and has handy transport links and amenities nearby.


Every bedroom will have an en-suite wet room. There will be two one-bedroom apartments on the ground floor to support more independent living.

Tyne Grange will also have high-quality communal spaces, including landscaped gardens, for service users and visitors to enjoy.

Tyne Grange’s Commissioning Home Director, Samantha Cottam, said: “I’m delighted to be opening Exemplar Health Care’s very first care home in Newcastle.

“We at Exemplar Health Care are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for our service users. We have worked with health and social care specialists in the region to ensure that this quality care home has been designed to meet the needs of those living here.

‘Fabulous opportunity’

“Every one of our high-quality care homes provides supportive, welcoming, community-based services which help our service users reach their goals. Supporting complex care service users can be extremely rewarding, and Exemplar Health Care already offers stable and secure careers to more than 2,900 people.

“The opening of Tyne Grange is a fabulous opportunity for carers and nurses who are local to our new Newcastle care home.”

If you’re interested to work with us, Tyne Grange is recruiting for Support Workers, Registered Nurses, and a Clinical Nurse Manager.
