Planning permission granted for £4.7M specialist care home in Stockton-On-Tees

Specialist care provider, Exemplar Health Care, has recently announced that building work for its first care home in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees is set to begin after receiving planning permission.

Walter Thompson Contractors LTD has been appointed by Exemplar Health Care to work on the design and build for a 30-bed care home – bringing over 150 jobs to the local area.

The new Stockton-on-Tees care home, named Tees Grange, has received an investment of £4.7m which will bring one of the UK’s leading specialist nursing care providers to the region and generate approximately 150 jobs, including management, nursing, catering and care positions. 

Scheduled to open early 2023, the care home will specialise in supporting people living with dementia, acquired brain injury, mental health needs and physical disabilities. The 30-bed home will be well-equipped with extensive infrastructure including the latest technologies that focus on maximising independence and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible. The bedrooms will come with an en-suite wet room, and the building will feature high quality, spacious communal spaces, sensory and therapy rooms and landscaped gardens, for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Charlotte Lloyd, Developments Director at Exemplar Health Care, comments:

“We’re delighted to be growing our community within the County Durham region with our first care home in Stockton-on-Tees.

“Tees Grange will provide specialist, nurse-led care from our highly skilled team, supporting the residents by building their everyday life skills and helping them build on their independence. It’s our ambition for Tees Grange to be a place where we host community events, and where our residents can be part of the community, through work placements, local events or volunteering.”

Paul Hammerton, Managing Director at Walter Thompson Contractors said:

“We are pleased to announce that, through collaborative working, planning permission for a new care home in Stockton-on-Tees has now been granted. With an investment of £4.7m, this is our second care home development in Stockton and one of many projects we are working on with Exemplar Health Care.”
