Care provider Exemplar Health Care has begun on-site construction for its new £6.6m development to create a specialist care home in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester. The development is led by Yorkshire-based contractor Walter Thompson.
Construction started at the new home in April 2023. Once complete, the new home – which will be called Acer Mews – will support adults living with acquired brain injuries, complex mental health needs, dementia, and physical disabilities.
The home will be split into two, 14-bed communities – as small group living provides a more homely, supportive, and responsive care environment – and each of the 28 bedrooms will have its own ensuite wet room. The home will also have communal dining and living spaces, sensory bathrooms, an activities hub, a large accessible garden and a dedicated therapy room offering a full holistic approach to the service users with therapeutic care and support led by the Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist.
