Exemplar Health Care, which is one of the UK’s biggest providers of specialist nursing care for adults living with complex needs, has invested £5 million in Wykewood which will open this spring in Wyke.
The care home is recruiting for a variety of roles, including nurses, support workers, administrators, kitchen staff, and cleaners.
Based on Huddersfield Road, near Wyke Park, Wykewood will support 40 adults living with complex mental health needs, and neuro and physical disabilities, including brain injuries and stroke.
Sharon Burton, Wykewood’s Commissioning Home Director, said: “I’m delighted to be opening Exemplar Health Care’s first care home in Bradford – and to be providing 150 jobs for the local area.
“Every one of our care homes provides supportive, welcoming, community-based services which help people to reach their goals. Working in social care can be extremely rewarding, and Exemplar Health Care is already offering stable and secure careers to more than 3,200 people.
“It is extremely rewarding to be able to support 40 local people living with complex health needs, and to provide over 150 stable and local jobs.
“From nurses to carers, chefs and cleaners, we are hoping to find new staff members to support us in our aim to make every day better for the people we care for.”
