Spearhead Healthcare, a supplier to the care home sector, will open the doors to a new showroom in Stafford later this month in response to growing demand for high quality furniture, furnishings and equipment designed specifically for the care environment.
The showroom, located on Staffordshire Technology Park, will offer a complete overview of the company’s interior product ranges, from floorings and fabrics to curtains and chairs, all displayed within fully fitted room scenes.
Based on the successful concept of the company’s first showroom at its head office in Kilmarnock, Scotland, the Stafford facility is the first of its kind in England and aims to help all types of care home group scope out their requirements, discuss design options and visualise the fit out that would best suit their home.
The showroom scenes include: a lounge, dining room, café and reception area; a dementia suite with bedroom and living area; a room showcasing products and designs for bariatric care and younger adults; plus the ‘bedroom in a box’ option.
Professor June Andrews, international dementia expert and former director of the University of Stirling's Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC), will officially open Spearhead’s new showroom at a launch event on Thursday 20 September.
Issac Theophilos, founder of a successful care home consultancy and author of the recently published book ‘How To Get Outstanding’, will also give a presentation and lead a discussion at the event. Five copies of his book will be given away in a free prize draw.
Russell Pillar, director of care interiors at Spearhead Healthcare, comments: “We are delighted to announce the forthcoming launch of our new showroom that will provide the ideal surroundings for national or local care home operators to take a step back from their busy daily routines and weigh up decisions about interiors without distractions.
“They will be able to see and touch the furniture and furnishings for themselves, while benefiting from the knowledge of our team of design consultants who have a wealth of experience in fitting out all areas of a care home. In particular, we can advise on creating dementia-friendly environments, and how to meet practical and regulatory requirements without compromising on style.
“Care home managers are warmly invited to attend our launch event, which will provide a great opportunity to network with their peers and to share ideas. The whole team is looking forward to the event and welcoming our first visitors to the showroom.”
Recently launched products that will be displayed in the showroom include a new range of lounge chairs with pressure-relieving foam built into the seat cushion, designed to prevent pressure issues developing; and the Circular 6-9 Seater Bench/Table from Spearhead’s Outdoor range, allowing residents’ wheelchairs to fit easily at each table.
