The Camelot Rest Home is a residential home in a beautifully appointed residential care home for people over 65, including those with dementia, in Dudley in the West Midlands – the oldest resident being 105! It has 31 single and 2 shared rooms, of which most are en suite. Many of the rooms overlook very nice gardens where the residents can go when the weather is good.
The small laundry, equipped by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems, consists of an Amazon high spin free standing washer and a Heubsch dryer, both supplied on Armstrong’s increasingly popular fixed price hire scheme. The laundry handles everything from the home, including all the bedding, kitchen and dining room items and the residents’ personal laundry – so it is kept busy all day every day according to the care manager, Wendy Madderley. “The laundry is operated by the carers who are all trained to use all the special programmes and is often in use through the evenings and nights as well as day time. We are really happy with the equipment which is very reliable and easy to use.”
The fixed price hire programme covers all maintenance and repair issues including parts and labour throughout the length of the agreement, and allows care homes to install a fully compliant laundry without the capital outlay and makes budgeting easier – there are no nasty surprises if a machine needs repairing.
