Works starts on our new complex needs care home in Walsall, West Midlands
11 May 2022
Construction has begun on our new £4 million complex needs care home in Walsall, West Midlands, opening in early 2023.
Located on Brownhills Road, ‘Shire Oaks Court’ will provide specialist nursing care for 30 residents and will generate over 150 new jobs for those in the surrounding area.
Set to open in early 2023, the new home will have 30 large bedrooms - each with an en-suite wet room - will provide ground floor living for adults living with dementia, acquired brain injury, complex mental health conditions and physical disabilities.
The home will be equipped top-to-bottom to meet the needs of its new residents and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, sensory and therapy rooms and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy.
"It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 30 local people with complex health needs"
Charlotte Lloyd, Developments Director at Exemplar Health Care
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 events, and where our residents can be part of the community, whether through work placements, local events or volunteering.”

“It’s fantastic to see our team on-site and starting work to create a care home which will be an important asset for the local community.
