The first phase of a new multi-unit care facility, Alderbrook Care Home, is set to open its doors in Leeds later this year, filling a gap for critical complex care provision creating more than 100 jobs.

Occupying the former Donisthorpe Hall site on Shadwell Lane, Alderbrook Care Home will provide specialist nursing care for adults living with dementia and complex mental and physical health conditions.

Opening in phases, Silver Lodge unit will provide 40 en-suite bedrooms with a further 20 due to open before the end of the year. The home’s total occupancy of 160 en-suite bedrooms will be available in 2024.

Thoughtfully designed, Alderbrook Care Home will feature beautiful lounge areas and dining rooms, an adult-appropriate sensory room, hairdressing salon, cinema and secure landscaped gardens.

Founded upon a person-centred approach, Alderbrook Care Home’s activities program is influenced by residents’ individual interests, ranging from chair yoga and bingo to jigsaw puzzles and karaoke, facilitated by a team trained in the latest care techniques to foster engagement and connection.

Home Manager, Clare McCourt said: “Alderbrook is a beautiful care home that we know will become an asset to the local community, but above that, it provides substance – the building blocks to better care that help residents feel loved and valued.

“The home has been meticulously planned to ensure it provides accessible and functional spaces, high-spec equipment and menus that nourish – whilst forming staff teams that are specially trained to truly understand the conditions and dependencies of our residents. All things that make for a harmonious home environment.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents into Silver Lodge and expanding the home this year and throughout 2024.”
