£2m Newcastle care home set to create 100 jobs

A complex needs care home provider is set to create 100 new jobs with the launch of its first North East care home this summer.

Following a £2m investment, Exemplar Health Care is set to open Tyne Grange on Grainger Park Road in West Newcastle.

Built on the site of the former Hillfield Nursing Home in Elswick, the facility will support 22 younger adults who live with complex needs such as neuro-disabilities, Huntington’s Disease, brain injury and stroke, and challenging behaviour.

The care specialist will also recruit a total of 100 local staff, including nurses, support workers, administrators, kitchen and domestic team members, to work in the new home.

Tyne Grange’s commissioning home director Sam Cottam, said: “I’m thrilled to be opening Exemplar Health Care’s very first care home in Newcastle.

“Exemplar Health Care’s existing experience supporting complex needs – as well as its systems, processes and values – will set Tyne Grange apart from other care home providers.

“As well as providing employment opportunities, there are plans in place to help Tyne Grange become part of the local community. It’s our ambition for Tyne Grange 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.”
