STAFF at Worcester’s new state of the art neurological care centre have begun work ahead of the Oldbury Road venue opening in the spring.
At least 70 local people will work at Inspire Neurocare Worcester, a 43-bed centre which will provide rehabilitation, long-term care, respite and palliative care for people with complex neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and brain and spinal injuries.
Inspire Neurocare is particularly aimed at younger adults (18 – 65) who want to maintain a high level of independence whilst also receiving the specialist care and support they require.
Home manager Marc Russell welcomed his specialist team which includes qualified therapists, nurses and specialist carers known as Life Skills Facilitators, at their induction this week.
“It’s wonderful to be able to welcome so many fantastic individuals to our new team, at such an exciting time,” he said.
“We’re making great progress with the final stages of the centre and we can’t wait until our official open day at the end of February.
“I’m really proud of our contemporary design. There really is nothing else like this in the country, and now we have an exceptional team that can run the service and provide an outstanding care experience for our residents.”
