Specialist care provider, Exemplar Health Care, has begun on-site construction for its new £5.8M specialist care home refurbishment in Knowsley, Merseyside.
Fernwood, will be Exemplar Health Care’s seventh care home in the Liverpool region, and will specialise in supporting 28 adults living with dementia, acquired brain injuries, complex mental health needs and physical disabilities, across two units.
The home is set to open at the end of 2023 and will be situated on Knowsley Lane, Liverpool. Each of the 28 bedrooms will come with an en-suite wet room, and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, sensory and therapy rooms and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Charlotte Lloyd, Director of Commissioning at Exemplar Health Care, comments:
“Our newest specialist care home in Merseyside, Fernwood, will bring over 100 jobs to the local area. We are so looking forward to working closely with the Knowsley community and integrating with local establishments.”
North-East based contractor, Walter Thompson, has been appointed to develop the existing building, located on Knowsley Lane.
Tony Thompson, Site Manager at Walter Thompson, said:
“It’s fantastic to see our team on site and starting work to create a care home which will be an important asset for the local community. We look forward to working in partnership with Exemplar Health Care ahead of completion towards the end of this year.”
