Every bedroom at Kings Lodge has a high specification en-suite wet room however residents have the choice to bathe in four specialist bathrooms. These facilities are popular with residents especially new arrivals who have not been able to bathe for some time due to access issues.
The Gentona provides a powered bather transfer seat and variable height functionality for safe moving and handling. If residents have greater postural challenges or more complex needs, the reclining Sentes bath provides a more supportive solution.
Offering the opportunity to bathe is a major benefit at Kings Lodge as it relaxes residents and can improve therapy sessions. Maintaining positivity and well-being is a key factor within the atmosphere of Kings Lodge which is greatly enhanced by the Gainsborough baths.
Jane Whittaker, Mobilisation Manager, has worked in the care sector for over 20 years and has been a key member of the Kings Lodge team since 2015. As a qualified nurse she has fulfilled several roles during her career and when equipment procurement became part of her remit, she has always chosen Gainsborough for specialist bath provision.
Jane explains: “When you have years of experience in various care facilities you know what products are reliable and trustworthy. Longevity is so important with products however many pieces of equipment may look good these days but simply do not last. Whereas I know Gainsborough baths are durable. They deliver long term value and are exceptionally cost effective through operational savings and a competitive price. Many homes look at purchasing cheaper products however this strategy costs more in the long run. Here at Kings Lodge all our equipment is top quality, this is why we specified the Gentona and Sentes baths.”
Jane continues: “It is my responsibility to ensure all equipment at Kings Lodge delivers utmost safety and comfort. Before purchase I discussed Gainsborough in detail with my Managing Director and we both agreed their bathing solutions were ideal for our clients and carers. They have an excellent reputation for quality products and outstanding after sales support. All aspects of the installation from site surveys to commissioning were implemented without a hitch and now the baths are in use, they fit perfectly with our high-quality care provision. They look lovely and fit perfectly with our style of décor, the clean lines complement the contemporary and luxurious bathrooms we offer at Kings Lodge.”
