Enabling people to continue enjoying what they’ve always done and having the opportunity to try new things is an overriding philosophy of care at Newlands, part of Warwickshire-based charity WCS Care, where freedom, choice and dignity are paramount.
Being able to bathe is an essential part of maintaining a routine of normality - for many with reducing functional decline and change, bathing can be one of the first areas of an individual’s routine that becomes affected. But Newlands believe your life doesn’t have to change when you move into a care home.
Armitage Shanks Enhances DOC M Offering To Better Support Sight Loss And Dementia Sufferers
Armitage Shanks, the renowned commercial washroom solutions provider, has enhanced its industry-leading DOC M package alongside new research around sight loss and dementia.
For the last few decades, Armitage Shanks has worked closely with occupational therapists to create the most inclusive solutions which guarantee compliance in commercial and residential care sector washrooms. Now, the manufacturer has adapted its DOC M offering to comprise more visually distinctive products. Due to the colour’s optimum visual properties, Armitage Shanks’ easy to specify DOC M packages now include red toilet seats, hinged arms, toilet roll holders and back rests.
The latest report on delivery of home adaptation provision maintains ‘the overarching aim’ is for it to be accessible and timely.
Service providers can take a simple step to achieving this by using Closomat. The company- Britain’s leading provider of accessible bathroom/ toilet solutions- offers a unique package that ensures professional execution of a bathroom adaptation, and its ongoing, long-term performance.
Closomat manufactures the brand leader in shower (wash & dry toilets). It also supplies a raft of additional bathroom fixtures that enable people to continue to live independently, and more safely, in their home.
