When the laundry at the Brookfield Nursing Home in West Kirby needed re-equipping at the beginning of this year, Jason Jones, owner/manager of the home, looked at a number of options and found that the Amazon HSF11 washer extractor and a Huebsch tumble dryer from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems met his requirements best.
Brookfield has been caring for local people since 1904, and currently has 25 rooms for both long term residents and respite care. Fully qualified nursing staff is in attendance 24 hours a day enabling the home to cater for residents with complex medical needs. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens near to a park and the promenade, the home is maintained to a very high standard and has all the latest equipment to make life as easy as possible for residents, their relatives and staff.
The Armstrong equipment handles all the laundry generated by the home, including bed linen, table and kitchen linen and residents’ personal clothing. The 11kg washer incorporates a thermal disinfect cycle which is essential for compliance in a nursing home laundry. The laundry is operated by dedicated staff and is in use for at least five hours a day, seven days a week.
Jason Jones told us, “We have been very happy with the new equipment – the operators find it easy to use. There has been one breakdown, but an Armstrong engineer attended the same day and got it up and running again which is obviously very important for an operation like ours.”
