SUPPLIER FOCUS: Cube Modular connects families with COVID-secure visitor pods

Meeting POD Interior

New visitor pods from Cube Modular are enabling care home residents to reconnect with their families after lockdown in a safe and secure environment.

Cube Modular has delivered one of its COVID-secure care home visitor pods to Blackpool to the delight of everyone at Annacliffe Residential Care Home. The guest pod, branded as the Visitor Hub, was installed at the forecourt of the residential home and will reunite residents and loved ones, in person in the same room, for the first time since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Annacliffe, a residential home which provides professional care in an attentive and family-orientated environment to 60 residents, has described the arrival of its visitor pod as a ‘ray of sunshine’. The visitor pod will enable them to bring together their residents with family and friends in a controlled, relaxed and COVID-secure setting.

Owner and manager, Alexandra Burke, commented: “We are absolutely delighted for our residents. Finally, after months of uncertainty and anxiety for our wonderful, but infection-vulnerable, residents, we are able to offer them a space, a totally separate space, in which they can meet their family and loved ones in person. No more waving through windows. No more wordless meetings. I am so delighted for them all, as well as for their families and our staff. Cube Modular has given us the perfect solution to continue through these most worrying times. I couldn’t be more pleased to have been able to make this happen for everyone involved. The pod really has brought a ray of sunshine to our residents.”

Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD, added: “We are thrilled to have made this possible for everyone at Annacliffe. When we arrived to install the pod, the excitement was palpable. The look on everyone’s faces said it all!

“The response to our Care Home Visitor Pods initiative has been immense. We are delighted that we can offer care homes a unique, portable building solution which not only enables a personal and controlled contact between care home residents and loved ones during the pandemic, but also does so in a most safe, secure, and risk-mitigating way. We are looking forward to installing many more at care homes across the UK.”

Through utilising the Visitor Hub, Annacliffe is now able to organise scheduled visitor bookings for guests every hour. Each visit will be take place for 20 minutes, followed by a rigorous cleaning procedure for 40 minutes before the next visit is due.

After months of lockdown, shielding and protection of the UK’s elderly care home residents, Cube’s Care Home Visitor Pods are a portable building solution, which not only helps mitigate the spread of the virus, it also brings back a little joy, comfort and security to those who need it most.

Cube Modular’s Visitor Pods are a modular foldable container solution for care homes in the UK. Fully flexible in size, configuration and internal fit-out, units are available on both a hire and purchase basis.
