Beryl and goerge in the HC-One Care Home

A HC-One Care Home has enabled a Resident to live with her beloved cat of 13 years after fears they may be separated.

HC-One care home ‘pimps out zimmers’ to help residents recognise their frames 

Residents of a HC-One care home based in Coventry have been decorating their Zimmer frames, along with staff to help reduce the number of falls.  

The Pimp My Zimmer project aims to reduce falls after a care home matron noticed people with dementia sometimes find it hard to recognise their own frame. 

Zimmer frames are usually grey, making them hard for people with dementia to tell apart or, in some cases, see them clearly.

But with the help of staff at Brandon House, Residents have had their frames transformed into colourful works of art.
