Work Starts on Complex Needs Care Home in Pontefract

Exemplar Health Care has started work on transforming a former care home on Westfield Lane, Pontefract, into a brand-new complex care service.

The site is currently occupied by the former 50-bed, two-unit New Haven elderly care home, which will now undergo a transformative renovation led by contractor Walter Thompson. Once the renovation and refit has been completed, the new home will be called Hamilton Springs.

Hamilton Springs will support adults living with acquired brain injuries, complex mental health needs, and physical disabilities, providing long-term community care for adults who would otherwise have a pro-longed stay in hospital or other inappropriate setting.

Due to open in late 2024, the new home will feature 37 ensuite bedrooms, split across three communities, with Exemplar Health Care’s model of small group living providing a more homely, supportive, and responsive care environment.

The home will also feature communal dining and living spaces, sensory bathrooms, an activities hub, a therapy room, and a large accessible garden. These amenities are designed to enhance the overall well-being of residents and foster a sense of community within the care home.
