The Gainsborough stand at the NEC will encompass a wider range of features this year highlighting the diversity of its holistic services. This highly established UK manufacturer delivers the complete accessible bathroom and wet room solution for all care homes, rehabilitation units and hospitals. Through its G360 services Gainsborough provides a 360-degree choice in terms of planning, design, product provision, installation, servicing and beyond. No other specialist manufacturer can provide this level of service –strengthened by leading bathing solutions such as its Sentes.
The Sentes is an ultra-efficient, power reclining bath which provides enhanced support to bathers with postural challenges. Encompassing the latest in assistive technology and ergonomic design, the Sentes is a proven choice for providers seeking healthcare excellence.
Aura Care Living specified Sentes baths for its prestigious Kings Lodge Camberley care home, Surrey. This facility has been referred to in the national press as one of the most luxurious care homes in the UK. This level of service required assisted baths that would ensure high quality care as the Kings Lodge Mobilisation Manager explains:“Overall Gainsborough baths have been chosen as a high-quality solution for a high-quality care facility. They deliver a superior bathing experience that perfectly complements our ethos for client-centric care that is luxurious and of the utmost standard. We believe Kings Lodge is a new breed of care home, an opulent home for people to thrive in comfort and style. Gainsborough Sentes baths help us deliver this exceptional experience.”
Commenting on the effectiveness of Sentes baths for residents, a senior carer at Kings Lodge added: “The Sentes is nice and deep so my residents can have a good soak and it gives good postural support when reclined for more complex needs. It is easily accessible from either side so I can wash and assist my residents at the correct level without compromising my back or posture.”
The Sentes reclining bathing system and moulded seat help to improve postural control – enhancing bathing comfort and delivering the optimum blend of functionality and performance. The vertical-raising, side-entry door also ensures easy-access for bathers, making transfers safer and simpler for care staff. With its quick-fill technology and low water usage, it reduces time between refills, allowing carers to focus on the needs of bathers. The water and energy efficient Sentes has a SWL of 205kg, thermostatic controls and is available with a range of sensory options including Bluetooth sound, hydrotherapy and chromotherapy.
