Mayor of Wigan opens Lakeview

Exemplar Health Care opened the doors to its brand-new care home, Lakeview, on 13th September 2018.

Following a successful community day in July, where local residents were welcomed to enjoy afternoon tea and a preview of the home, Lakeview colleagues and Leigh stakeholders came together to celebrate the home’s official launch. Exemplar’s newest care home, Lakeview will provide specialist nurse-led care to some of the region’s most vulnerable adults. 

The ribbon was cut by the Mayor of Wigan alongside Home Manager Jo Roughley in the company of her passionate team. Jo outlined the team’s desire to be part of the Leigh community, and confirmed that the home’s community space – The Hub – was up and running.  

Jo Roughley, Home Manager for Lakeview, said “I’m thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the launch of Lakeview and am looking forward to working with our brilliant team, our residents and the community to make every day better for everybody.” 

Madam Mayor, Councillor Sue Greensmith, said “I’m delighted to launch the home and to meet everyone involved. I’m overwhelmed by how wonderful and homely Lakeview is, and it’s clear the team have worked incredibly hard to make this a really special place for people to live and work. This is a fantastic addition to the community in Leigh and I congratulate Exemplar on the inclusion of The Hub, which will be a great free resource.”
