Ardale taps Gainsborough for care home baths

Ardale has recommissioned Gainsborough to provide three specialist Gentona baths to ensure its care excellence ethos is present in the bathrooms of its Oakham Grange care home in Rutland and beyond.

Gentona baths provide powered height adjustment and bather transfer seats so bathers and carers benefit from safe moving and handling.  Bathers once again have freedom to bathe and enjoy the sensation of soaking in a bath.

Eye level engagement is possible and administering personal care does not involve uncomfortable stooping. With the inclusion of multiple safety and therapeutic features built-in, Gainsborough baths are now providing a vital hygiene and sensory experience at Oakham Grange.

“Times have been really tough over the last year with Covid so being able to soak in a bath has become a real treat for residents, not just a procedure for personal hygiene,” said Oakham Grange general manager Catherine Ferguson.

“They can enjoy the airspa bubbles, chromotherapeutic lighting and even music through the inbuilt Bluetooth sound system – really stimulating for people with dementia.  They’re one of our highlights when we show potential new clients around as they are vital for well-being,” she added.

In addition, care staff are protected from back injury as manual lifting and adjustment of bathers is not required.

Oakham Grange opened in 2020 and is the latest luxury care home from Ardale.  It delivers a new level of care in the UK’s smallest county – supported by the latest accessible bathing solutions from Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms.

This contemporary 60-bed building is organised into three households providing quality homes for residents with a range of conditions from restricted mobility to dementia.
