Exemplar Health Care, one of the country’s leading nursing care providers for adults living with complex and high acuity needs, has marked the official opening of Hillside Court, located on St Anthony’s Road.

Cutting the ribbon was The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Abigail Marshall Katung, who expressed her gratitude to the home’s team for their dedication to residents and the positive impact they’ve already made on the local community.

Construction for Hillside Court began in August 2022, led by Walter Thompson Contractors, with the home officially opening to new residents in January 2024.

At the time of opening, Hillside Court was Exemplar Health Care’s 50th care home, with the Rotherham-based care provider having since opened anotherhome as part of its ambitious growth plans.

Hillside Court focuses on supporting adults living with complex mental health needs, dementia and neuro-disabilities. The home has 41 large bedrooms, each with an en-suite, across four units. The home has communal dining and living spaces, sensory bathrooms, an activities hub, therapy room, consultation room, visitors’ suite and a large accessible garden.

The home is close to local amenities and transport links so that people can maintain their community connections.

People living at Hillside Court will be able to access the full range of clinical and holistic care they need. The new team prides itself on empowering residents to maximise their independence in a way that works for them based on their healthcare needs, whilst providing the support they need to live fulfilling and enjoyable lives.

For those looking to advance their careers or take up a new challenge, several roles are still being recruited. Full details can be found on the Exemplar Health Care careers website: https://www.exemplarhc.com/careers

Laura Clegg, Home Manager at Hillside Court, said:

“After months of planning, preparation, and team building, it was very exciting to finally open our doors and to get to work supporting people in Leeds.

“Now that we’ve been open a few months, and we have our first resident’s living with us, it’s really started to feel like home – especially now we’ve cut the ribbon and had a party to celebrate!

“Our whole team wants to create a warm, inclusive, and vibrant community where the people we support can thrive, families can find support, and where compassionate care is at the forefront of everything we do.

“We know this type of service is in high demand for individuals and families in the local area and our dedicated team is looking forward to working with local Commissioners, Social Workers, and families to make a positive difference to people that need long term nursing care and support.”
