12 October 2021

Tyne Grange in Newcastle

Our Tyne Grange care home in Newcastle, marked its first anniversary last week with a visit from the Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Councillor Habib Rahman.

Tyne Grange, which opened its doors to its first resident last September, had undergone a £3.1 million refurbishment to provide Newcastle with a new state-of-the-art, a specialist nursing home for adults living with complex and high acuity needs.

At a party held at the home, staff and colleagues who have been working at the home since it first opened were awarded gifts, including bracelets and watches.

The Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Councillor Habib Rahman was invited to cut the ribbon and unveil a plaque, to mark the official first anniversary of the home.

The Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Habib Rahman said: “I am absolutely delighted to be here for the anniversary of Tyne Grange. The team have worked so hard over the past year and it’s great to finally celebrate the first anniversary of the home with its staff and residents.

“The team at Tyne Grange have given me a tour of the premises and it is great to see how the facility is tailored to support every resident. Tyne Grange’s team seem to be very committed to offering the best quality care they can and it is great to see the resident’s families here too”.


Tyne Grange’s Commissioning Home Director, Sam Cottam, at Exemplar Health Care, said:

“We’re so thrilled to have officially opened Tyne Grange and to have received a warm welcome from the Lord Mayor, Habib Rahman.

“At Exemplar Health Care, we are passionate about employing as many local people as possible and we are pleased that we have been able to welcome local nurses and carers from across Newcastle to support our residents.

“All our colleagues have a real passion for delivering quality care for every resident, and we’re looking forward to becoming a part of the local community.”
