Exemplar opens £6.2m care home in West Midlands

Bedroom at Shire Oaks Court

Exemplar Health Care has opened £6.2m Shire Oaks Court in Walsall, West Midlands.

It will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with complex conditions, including mental health needs, dementia, neuro-disabilities, and physical disabilities.

The setting has 30 bedrooms, each with an en suite wetroom, split in to three units. The small group living model, Exemplar said, provides a more homely and supportive environment that is more responsive to people’s needs.

The home also features communal dining and living spaces, an activities hub, a therapy room, salon and a garden. There will also be treatment rooms for the in-house therapists.

Creating more than 100 jobs, Shire Oaks Court has an in-house multidisciplinary team of health care assistants, registered nurses, life skills facilitators, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists.


‘We are thrilled to announce the opening of Shire Oaks Court, our new care home designed to provide a supportive and empowering environment for adults with complex care needs,’ said Katie Capes, commissioning manager at Exemplar Health Care.

‘With our state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained staff, and focus on promoting independence and choice, we are confident that Shire Oaks Court will set a new standard for excellence in the care for adults, whilst brining much needed additional specialist care capacity to the local area.’
