The home will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with a range of complex and high acuity care needs. The construction of the home started in Summer 2022 by contractor Walter Thompson. The home is due to be completed in Spring 2023. Once completed, Wheldale Heights will have 24 large adapted bedrooms - each with an en-suite wet room - spread over two units. The home will support adults living with complex mental health needs, dementia, neuro-disabilities and physical disabilities.

Our holistic approach to care

Our holistic approach to care means people get the right care from the right team, at the right time, first time round. With this approach, we aim to stop the cycle of failed placements.

When open, Wheldale Heights will offer holistic care in a community based home, close to friends and family. The home will have a dedicated and trained team of Registered Nurses, Health Care Assistants and Activities/Life Skills Coordinators, as well as an in-house Therapy Team. Residents at Wheldale Heights will have the support of Exemplar Health Care clinical experts, including Behaviour Support Specialists and a Consultant Psychiatrist in times of crisis. Our high staffing levels will allow us to build trust and work at the pace of the individual, which leads to improved person-centred and longer term outcomes.

Our referrals process

Once we agree a placement for an individual, we work with them, their family, commissioners and clinicians to agree their goals and length of stay. With our cost-per-care pricing approach, we’re able to set out the support required to enable people to achieve their goals. Our approach reduces readmissions to acute settings, facilitates faster returns to lower cost community living and brings any cycle of failed placements to an end.

We work closely with individuals and professionals throughout the referral, assessment, transition and admission process to ensure that we’re right for the individual and that the individual is right for our home.

Linda’s story

Linda moved into Tyne Grange in December 2020 following a stay in hospital, and later a rehabilitation centre. Linda was admitted to hospital with autoimmune encephalitis and chronic hypersensitivity

pneumonitis, resulting in significant communication and memory problems and behaviours of concern. With 1:1 support from our Care Team, and input from our Life Skills Team, Linda now enjoys a good quality life. Our high staffing levels have enabled Linda to progress at her own pace and build trust with the Care Team. This has reduced the number of instances of behaviours of concern by over 95%. Since moving to Tyne Grange, Linda has explored a variety of activities and interests – she’s made decorations to personalise her room, baked cakes for the home and started a knitting club with other residents. Linda shared: “I love living here – they’re so lovely.”
