Potters Green care home in Kilnhurst

We’re delighted to announce that our new care home in Kilnhurst, Potters Green, is now open and is taking referrals.

The home supports adults living with complex needs arising from neuro-disabilities including Huntington’s disease, complex mental health needs and physical health conditions. The home’s Roman Unit offers a male only environment. 

Potters Green isn’t your typical residential care home. 

It supports people who are considered to have needs that are ‘too complex’ for mainstream care providers. 

The people we support often have a number of secondary diagnoses and complexities including behaviours of concern, tracheostomies, ventilators and PEG feeding tubes. 

Our holistic approach to care, high staffing levels and small nurse-led communities enable us to meet people’s complex needs in a community-based home, which leads to longer term person-centred outcomes.  

We’re proud to bring this much needed service to the Kilnhurst area, to enable more local people living with complex needs to get the care they need, closer to home. 

Take a look around Potters Green

Following a comprehensive refurbishment and extension, the home is now ready to welcome its first resident.

Exemplar Health Care started the refurbishment after purchasing the previous Meadow View care home from Yorkshire Parkcare Company. 

Now, the new Potters Green has 20 large bedrooms, each with an en-suite across two ten-bed communities. Each community has communal dining and living spaces, and residents also have use of an activities hub, sensory room, therapy room and large accessible garden. 

This small group living enables us to be more responsive to people’s needs and ensure continuity of care.

Nurse-led care from a multidisciplinary team 

Potters Green provides complex nursing care from a team of trained Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants. 

As a leading nursing care provider, our staffing levels at Exemplar Health Care are higher than most. 

There’s always at least one Registered Nurse on each unit, with a team of Health Care Assistants based on people’s unique needs, which may be 1:1 or 2:1. Our in-house team also includes a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Therapy Assistant and Activities Team. 

Residents also have the support of Exemplar Health Care clinical experts, including Behaviour Support Practitioners, a Speech and Language Therapist and a Consultant Psychiatrist in times of crisis.

This enables us to work at their own pace and build trust, and provide support with all aspects of their life, leading to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes for those living with complex health needs.

Each one of our teams play an important part in our mission to make every day better for the people we support.

“More than just a care home”

The home will be managed by Kim Payne, who brings a wealth of experience to Potters Green. Having reached an ‘Outstanding’ CQC rating at Greenside Court, another Exemplar Health Care home in Rotherham, her dream is to do the same again.

Kim shares: “I am delighted to welcome our first resident and colleagues to our new home. We are proud to offer high-quality care and support to people with complex needs in Kilnhurst. 

“Potters Green is more than just a care home; it is a place where people can live well and enjoy life to the fullest.

“Together, our dedicated team will go above and beyond to provide exceptional care, ensuring that every resident feels valued and cherished. Our mission is to create an environment where laughter echoes, friendships flourish, and memories are made. 

"We can’t wait to make a positive difference to the lives of the people living with us, who we are proud to welcome to Potters Green.”

“Profound and lasting positive impact”

Helen Lawson, Commissioning Manager said: "We are thrilled to announce the opening of Potters Green.

“We believe it will have a profound and lasting positive impact on the lives of everyone in the community. Enabling people to live and be cared for closer to their home, their loved ones, and without needing to be in an institutional hospital setting, which eases the burden on the NHS.”
