Oxfordshire’s Chawley Grove, a purpose-built 70-bed care home operated by Hamberley Care Homes, has chosen Gentona baths from Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms to complement its care model.
Located in Cumnor Hill and opening in May 2019 to support residents requiring residential, nursing and dementia care, it is part of a nine-strong network.
Its latest move as part of its person-centred support involves access to specialist hi-lo Gentona baths that deliver safe accessibility through advanced ergonomic and power assisted design.
Paul Hill, CEO at Hamberley Care Homes, said: “We regard Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms as the default choice in power bath suppliers. My previous experience of Gainsborough baths during time as a carer, nurse, care home manager and now Group CEO, confirms their reputation for outstanding performance.
“This is why we selected Gainsborough as our preferred supplier at Chawley Grove so residents could benefit from the most luxurious bathing experience possible. Through the technology encompassed in our Gentona baths, our ‘Spa bathrooms’ provide hydrotherapy, chromotherapy and environmental music for ultimate relaxation.
“Gainsborough baths perfectly lend themselves to the atmosphere we focus on during bathing. We do not portray solutions as ‘assisted baths’ as this implies dependency; we want bathing to be enjoyable, liberating and fun.
“Our wider ethos is care with creativity and innovation – our aesthetic Gentona baths enhance this approach and clearly demonstrate our values. They empower homemakers to support residents at a greater level and despite building design being a significant consideration, it will always be service that defines the success of a care home. Gainsborough baths underpin our strengths.”
