Exemplar Health Care plans to invest £20m on five new homes in the UK over the next 12 months.

The provider has 32 homes across Yorkshire, the Midlands, North East and North West. The five properties will be in Hull, Bradford, Birmingham, South Elmsall and Ellesmere Port.

The homes will support adults who need specialist nursing care and are living with a complex neuro disability, physical disability, or mental health condition. In addition, up to 150 jobs are expected to be created within each home.

‘These community-based homes provide person-centered care and rehabilitation that focus on maximising independence, building everyday living skills, and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible,’ said Charlotte Lloyd, commissioning director at Exemplar.

‘It is extremely rewarding to be able to support local people with complex health needs, and to provide over 500 stable and local jobs. We already employ 1,000 people in the Yorkshire region, so we’re proud to be opening two further care homes in Bradford and Hull.’

Walter Thompson will be constructing four of the homes, while Pacey and Wheatley will be building the property in Hull.

The company has seen significant growth during the past four years and invested £15.4m in six new projects during the year ended 31 March 2019.

In November, Ares Management bought the operator from pan-European private equity firm Agilitas Private Equity for an undisclosed sum.
