£5m Pontefract care home development to create 100 new jobs
A new multi-million pound care home development in West Yorkshire is set to create 100 local jobs.
Specialist nursing care firm Exemplar Health Care has today announced it will be investing £5m to open a new care home in Pontefract.
Scheduled to open in winter 2021, the care home will support 30 adults who need specialist nursing care and are living with a complex neuro or physical disability.
Known as Bennett Court, the home will include an activity hub, visitor suite, sensory room and a therapy room. Bedrooms will feature en-suite wet rooms, and the external area will comprise a range of communal spaces and landscaped gardens.
The firm anticipates that the development - its first in the area - will create around 100 new jobs.
Charlotte Lloyd, commissioning director at Exemplar Health Care, commented: “We’re pleased to announce we are investing in our first specialist care home for the Pontefract 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 around 100 stable and local jobs.”
