Recently completed in Hertfordshire’s Potters Bar, Potters Grange, the latest Ardale care home, has been custom built to provide exclusive residential living with nursing care. This contemporary 20-bed facility, with hints of Art Deco architecture, represents the latest in quality care for individuals of retirement age seeking stylish living, peace of mind and family-like camaraderie. It was constructed in just over 12 months and now provides a building comprising of two ‘households with rapport’, Hadley and Aspen – each with access to a Gentona assisted bath provided by Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms. The provision of the two Gentonas reflects the Potters Grange approach to care in terms of quality, safety and comfort.
Built by a family-run organisation, this care home has been specifically designed to be a life-affirming home and not a hotel. The opportunity to experience therapeutic bathing with dignity is a key part of the offering at Potters Grange – hence Gainsborough has been chosen once again by the developer to deliver exceptional power-assisted baths. Each communal bathroom complements en-suite wet rooms connected to individualised bedrooms with distinct character and varying facilities. Each luxury appointed bedroom houses specialist furniture that provides medical support; however, with a contemporary domestic appearance, a homely atmosphere is maintained.
Potters Grange represents a next generation, boutique care home. Its high specification interiors are matched by a unique care package that focuses on empowering retirement living for those of active minds. The staff aim to maintain client independence, skill sets and interests whilst providing flexible care whenever needed. The custom-built home incorporates all the latest technology for advanced care monitoring and communication, whilst its spacious layouts are considerately designed for seamless wheelchair and equipment access. Potters Grange aims to enable it residents so they can enjoy a lifestyle on their own terms as much as possible.
On-site features such as a cinema, beauty salon and luxury group dining room for relatives, all add to a place that is truly client-centred. There is also a dedicated electric ‘London style’ taxi so residents can be chauffeured to visit the shops or local attractions – ensuring a lifestyle connection with the outside world. Its two fully accessible, high specification bathrooms reiterate this approach to enabled living – both housing Gainsborough baths renowned for providing a positive experience for both residents and carers.
The care of our residents is important; however so is the support of our staff. The power assisted movement takes
the stress out of bathing by eliminating moving and handling risks and potential back injury
