Our Tyne Grange home in Newcastle opens in September!

21 August 2020


Tyne Grange, Exemplar Health Care’s £3.1 million state-of-the-art complex needs care home in Newcastle, is set to open to residents next month.

The three-storey home, a 30-minute walk from Newcastle’s city centre, will support 22 adults living with complex mental and physical health conditions.

Right now, builders are putting the finishing touches on Tyne Grange. Meanwhile, the home’s 100-strong care team of nurses, support workers, administrators, kitchen and domestic team members, and other support staff are completing training.

Tyne Grange is one of Exemplar Health Care’s 32 homes across England - and the very first in the North East.

Neighbours may remember the site of Tyne Grange as the Hillfield Nursing Home. Since closing and then acquired by Exemplar Health Care, Tyne Grange has been rebuilt top-to-bottom from the inside.

Every bedroom comes with an en-suite wet room, with two one-bedroom apartments on the ground floor to support more independent living. Tyne Grange also has high quality communal spaces, including landscaped gardens, for service users and their visitors to enjoy.

Here's a quick virtual tour of Tyne Grange:


‘Raring to go’

“We’re raring to go,” said Samantha Cottam, Tyne Grange’s Commissioning Home Director. Samantha brings 12 years of specialist nursing experience to the role.

“We’re proud that Tyne Grange can support 22 people, and provide over 100 stable, secure and varied local jobs.”

“Tyne Grange is perfectly positioned to fill the gap within specialist care provision in the North East, and existing needs.”

“As well as being refurbished top-to-bottom to the very highest standards, Tyne Grange also comes built-in with two decades of Exemplar Health Care’s world-class experience supporting people living with complex needs," Samantha added.

"Our systems, processes and values and set in place – and we’ll fulfil our vision to be outstanding from day one."

The home is currently awaiting registration from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). CQC registration is expected to be completed in the first half of September, with residents moving in shortly after.
