Bradford has welcomed a £5m specialist nursing home to the region which will support 40 adults living with complex mental and physical health conditions.
Exemplar Health Care opened its home in June of this year and has created 150 jobs, including the roles of health care assistants, registered nurses, and activities co-ordinators.
The Deputy Lord Mayor of Bradford, Beverley Mullaney, was invited to cut the ribbon and unveil a plaque, marking the official opening of Wykewood, Exemplar Health Care’s first home in Bradford.
Each bedroom is equipped with an en-suite wet room, and has communal dining and living spaces, an activities hub, therapy room, sensory room and large accessible garden. The home also includes a male-only unit.
Cllr Beverley Mullaney, said: “Wykewood’s staff work really hard to ensure the highest quality of care is provided for the residents. I am delighted to have been invited to the home and to take part in this opening.
“The team at Exemplar Health Care gave me a tour of the home and showed me how each room is tailored and personalised to each resident’s needs. It is great to see so many locals working together to provide quality care for the residents at the Wykewood home.”
Sharon Burton, commissioning home director at Wykewood commented: “We’re so thrilled to have opened Wykewood and to have received a warm welcome from the Deputy Lord Mayor, Beverley Mullaney.
“All our colleagues have a real passion for ensuring we deliver quality care for every resident, and we’re looking forward to becoming a part of the local community.
