New Barnsley care home provides specialist care and creates jobs

The opening of a new care home in Barnsley, funded by Yorkshire Bank, will create more than 40 jobs and deliver care for the elderly and those with specialist needs.

Ward Green Lodge, near Worsbrough, Barnsley, is a purpose-built care home able to cater for 64 residents and is being delivered by leading psychiatrist, Dr Darryl Britto.
The home provides high quality residential and dementia care with 64 en-suite bedrooms, each equipped with flat-screen televisions, DVD players, and mini-fridges. The dining room area includes a kitchenette for residents. A landscaped sensory garden with raised flower beds is available to be tended by residents, to help sensory stimulation and behavioural activation.

The home boasts innovative training for care staff to care in a compassionate manner yet be assertive and proactive to address any faults and shortcomings within the organisation. This approach is based on a desire to build a culture of candour ‘the residents come first’, vital to provide good health and social care.
