Leeds care home hits the high notes after Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms funding


Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms, the chosen supplier of specialist baths to Westward Care, has made a donation to the Leeds Headingley Hall care home.

It says it hopes the donation can enable residents to benefit from unique Opera North singing workshops.

Headingley Hall is one of three care establishments located on the outskirts of Leeds operated by Westward Care Limited and provides a range of assisted accommodation including 30 self-contained apartments, 57 residential beds and diverse respite services.

Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms has provided five power-assisted baths with variable-height functionality and bather transfer seats.

With a contribution from Gainsborough, Opera North, the Leeds-based national opera company, was commissioned to deliver a series of singing workshops at Headingley Hall.

Vocal delivery artists and accompanists provided the opportunity for residents to hone their musical skills while experiencing the pleasure of singing within a group.

The three sessions were very popular with around 40 residents attending each workshop.

Feedback from residents was extremely positive with many seeing both the fun and therapeutic side of the activity.

Peter Hodkinson, managing director of Westward Care, said: “We were thrilled to be able to offer all our residents this unique and rich singing experience – Opera North delivered excellent sessions that were rewarding for all.

“We pride ourselves on the innovative and tailored activities we provide in all our facilities and thank Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms for funding these opera workshops.”
