£5 million specialist nursing home to create 150 jobs in Wyke, Bradford

Around 150 jobs will be created in Wyke, Bradford, next year at a new complex needs care home by specialist nursing provider Exemplar Health Care.

The state-of-the-art home named Wykewood is set to open in 2021. The £5 million home will support 40 adults living with complex mental and physical health conditions.

Wykewood will provide person-centred care and rehabilitation that focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.

The home will begin recruiting nurses, support workers, administrators, kitchen and domestic team members, and other support staff at the start of next year.

Sharon Burton, Wykewood’s Commissioning Home Director, is keen for the home to have a positive impact on the community. She said: “I’m delighted and proud that Wykewood will support Wyke’s community. We at Exemplar Health Care know the Bradford area well, having two fantastic, high-quality homes over in Leeds. We’ve also closely consulted with local Clinical Commissioning Groups and the council to understand the keen demand for a high-quality home like Wykewood in the area.”

Sharon added: “Our new home means that local people who need support can live close to their own homes and get back their independence and everyday living skills. Wykewood will also create 150, stable, secure, full-time and part-time jobs, allowing for many different shift patterns and skill-sets,”

Wykewood is one of specialist nursing care provider Exemplar Health Care’s 32 homes across England. Once completed, the home will be comprised of 40 large bedrooms – each with an en-suite wet room – spread over three floors.
