Planning permission granted for new care home in Walsall
13 January 2022
We're pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted to build a 30-bed care home on Brownhills Road, in Walsall.
The care home will support adults who need specialist nursing care and rehabilitation following a brain injury, spinal cord injury or stroke, or are living with a complex physical disability or mental health condition.
We’ve worked closely with health and social care authorities in the area and hope to bring this one-of-a-kind facility to Walsall to enable local people who are living with complex needs, or, have suffered an accident to receive specialist care that they need close to their homes and loved ones.
Charlotte Lloyd, Developments Director at Exemplar Health Care, shares: “We’re pleased to announce we are investing in a 30-bed specialist care home for the Walsall area.
“This community-based home will provide person-centered care and rehabilitation that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills, and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.
“It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 30 local people with complex health needs and to provide over 100 stable and local jobs. As well as providing employment opportunities, there are plans in place to help the new care home become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for the home to be a place where we host community events, and where our residents can be part of the community, whether through work placements, local events or volunteering.”
Plans for the home
We’re working with reputable pre-application Planning Advisors and Architects to ensure that the design of the building is in keeping with the local area, whilst also meeting the needs of the residents who will live in the home.
We're pleased to share the initial site plan proposals with you:
