Gainsborough completes accessible bath installations at “next generation” care home
Accessible bathrooms supplier Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms, has completed a successful installation of Gentona bathing solutions at a new luxurious boutique residential care home in Hertfordshire.
Potters Grange, the latest Ardale care home located near Potters Bar, has been custom built to provide exclusive residential living with nursing care.
Describing itself as a “next generation” care home, the modern 20-bed facility incorporates the latest technology for advanced care monitoring and communication.
Each luxury appointed bedroom houses specialist furniture that provides medical support; however, with a contemporary domestic appearance to maintain a homely atmosphere.
With on-site features such as a cinema, beauty salon and luxury group dining room for relatives, spacious layouts are considerately designed for seamless wheelchair and equipment access.
The opportunity for residents to experience therapeutic bathing with dignity is a key part of the offering at Potters Grange with Gainsborough selected to supply fully accessible, high specification bathrooms.
The ultra-efficient Gentona baths that Gainsborough supplied offer a range of innovative features including variable height, powered bather transfer seats, hydrotherapy and chromotherapeutic lighting plus inbuilt antimicrobial technology.
Robert Myers, Head of Care Pathways, commented: “Being able to provide a sensory bathing experience to our residents is priceless. The lights, bubbles and peace of mind all combine to ensure bathing is pleasurable and positive, not a process-driven task just to be clean.
“The care of our residents is important, however, so is the support of our staff. Power assisted movement takes the stress out of bathing by eliminating moving and handling risks and potential back injury.
“Our team can also engage at eye level with bathers whilst providing personal care more effectively. We have specifically provided two bathrooms of varying sizes to accommodate individual preferences as a smaller space is more reassuring for some. However, both spaces still provide ample room to manoeuvre wheelchairs and equipment for efficient transfers.”
“Our sister service’s therapy team is a strong advocate of bathing, especially with the sensory features we have in our baths. The team regularly sees improved mood in residents after bathing and firmly believes it strengthens mental health and well-being. Overall, Gainsborough baths are simply better baths.”
