TenderCare, a care home in Oldbury in the West Midlands for elderly residents and people with dementia, has recently been expanded and now offers 41 single rooms and two shared rooms, most of which are en suite.
The on-site laundry was installed by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems on a fixed price hire agreement which means there is no capital outlay and no additional cost for parts and labour throughout the agreement period. The laundry handles everything from the home – bedding, towels, kitchen and dining room items as well as all the residents’ personal clothing. The laundry is equipped with two Amazon HSF 8kg washing machines and two Huebsch tumble dryers and it is operated by dedicated laundry staff during the day, seven days a week, and the carers will very often be using it during the night. The management of the home work hard to ensure that every aspect of the care they provide is of the highest quality, and this includes the laundry, so all the staff using the equipment are properly trained in the use of all the various programmes, including those for soiled linen and residents’ delicate clothing.
Christine Stanton, manager of the home told us that they are very pleased with the laundry. “The machines are in operation anything up to 20 hours a day,” she said. “They are very reliable, easy to use and the fixed price hire option helps us with budgeting and makes sure that there are no nasty shocks if a machine does break down.”
