Dementia home chooses Girbau Laundry


Healthcare Design Awards 2017 finalist Castlemeadow Care has chosen Girbau as its laundry equipment provider for a new home in Norfolk.

Girbau provided advice on laundry design and equipment choice for infection control, operational efficiency and quality and worked closely with the main contractors for the project to ensure a smooth installation and commissioning. New staff were also given introductory training on laundry operation and machine use.

“Castlemeadow Care were introduced to Girbau four years ago at The Care Forum and we’ve been using their machines ever since, across all our care homes,” said Business Development Manager Kesh Punj.

The St John’s House luxury care home features 60 en suite bedrooms and luxury boutique hotel style facilities, including Carters Coffee Shop, The Palm Restaurant, Library, Savoy Hair Salon, The Bridge Club games room, Hamptons Lounge and Residents’ shop offering a selection of toiletries and confectionery.

Girbau previously supplied replacement machines to three of the group’s other homes, including The Paddocks, Lincoln House and The Mayfields.
