6m Complex Care Home Officially Opens in Stockport

Exemplar Health Care has marked the official opening of Adswood Lodge, its brand new £6m care home in Stockport.

Cutting the ribbon was the Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Graham Greenhalgh, who expressed his gratitude to the home’s staff team for their dedication to residents and remarked on the state-of-the-art therapy equipment residents will benefit from.

Adswood Lodge, located in Cale Green in Stockport, supports adults living with neuro-disabilities including Huntington’s disease and including brain injuries and strokes, physical disabilities, spinal injuries, and complex mental health needs. It is Exemplar Health Care’s fourth care home in Greater Manchester.

The home has 30 large bedrooms, each with an ensuite wet room, split into three 10-bed communities. With this small group living model, Exemplar Health Care has found it can provide a far more supportive environment that is more responsive to people’s needs. Each community has a dining room, lounge, quiet lounge, and a sensory bathroom. In addition, there is an activities hub, sensory room, hair salon, visitors suite, multi-faith room and a large accessible garden.

The new home created 100 new healthcare jobs in the local area and will feature a multi-disciplinary healthcare team unlike many other care homes. The home has already recruited a mix of care, nursing, and therapeutic practitioners, including Healthcare Assistants, Registered Nurses, and a Physiotherapist.

Through this multi-disciplinary team, people living at Adswood Lodge can access the full range of clinical and holistic care they need. The new staff team also prides itself on empowering residents to maximise their independence in a way that works for them, based on their healthcare needs, providing the support they need to live fulfilling and enjoyable lives.
