Opening to residents at the end of April, Kingfisher View is now in the final stages of the build process, and the developments team are now making the final touches ahead of opening.

Exemplar’s newest service will be home to 12 people, and joins our two other Castleford homes, Fairburn Mews and Fairburn Vale. It will provide specialist nursing care for people who live with complex mental health needs.

As the development reaches the final stages of completion, the finishing touches are being made to the bedrooms, living and dining spaces and the communal garden. The service will be made up of five spacious two-bedroom apartments and two one-bedroom apartments as well as shared communal spaces and gardens.

Home Manager, Mark Rice-Thomson, said: “Kingfisher View is a beautiful home designed around the needs of people who live with complex mental health conditions.

“The large apartments, spacious dining areas and a communal courtyard garden create an environment where people can live with independence.

“The home’s apartment style-living will allow residents who live with mental health conditions to feel at home, tailor their living spaces and be in control of their lives, whilst continuing to receive a high-level of personalised care and support.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming residents, their families and health care commissioners into our home.”
