Exemplar Health Care is a leading provider of specialist nursing care for adults living with a range of complex and high acuity needs, arising from neuro-disability, brain injury, spinal injury, stroke, mental ill-health, physical disability, learning disability and/or autism and complex dementia.
Our community-based homes provide person-centred care and rehabilitation that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.
Our homes provide a welcoming and supportive environment where people can feel at home, continue to do the things that they enjoy, and remain closer to their loved ones.
We support people on their journey from being in hospital or living in a secure setting to community-based living, as well as offering longer term support for people living with degenerative or life-limiting illnesses.
Each person that we support is unique – which means that their goals are too, whether that’s full rehabilitation, returning to community living or living their life in the way they choose.
Our approach is personalised to the individuals that we support – we work with them, their loved ones and professionals to decide how they want to live, and design a care plan that’s tailored to their needs and goals.
Most of our homes have between 20-30 residents, and are designed into 10-bedded units, which promotes small group living. We’ve found that this approach provides a welcoming and supportive environment, which is more responsive to people’s needs.
Life should always be filled with the things that you love doing – regardless of your condition or care need. And that’s exactly what we encourage at Exemplar Health Care.
We encourage people to continue to do the things that they enjoy, as well as develop new hobbies, access education and volunteering if they wish, and support people to feel like a part of their local community.
Our high staffing levels enables us to work at people’s own pace and build trust, which leads to improved person-centred and longer-term outcomes.
All of our care homes are led by Registered Nurses and supported by teams of Health Care Assistants and Life Skills Facilitators. Many of our homes also have in-house Therapy Teams, and have access to our central Behaviour Support Specialists and Consultant Psychiatrist.
This enables people to access holistic care in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.
Our homes offer occupational therapy-led interventions such as daily living skills, financial management training, educational programmes, social skills development, community involvement, sensory strategies and social/creative activities, as well as psychology-led interventions such as positive behavioural support, mindfulness, psychiatry and cognitive skills development.
We listen to our service users and they’re involved in all decisions that impact their life and the running of our homes. Residents can become a Service User Ambassador and take part in our Service User Council, as well as having regular opportunities to get involved and feedback.
