Furniture design completes groundbreaking care model

Groundbreaking healthcare model

Yorkshire based healthcare furniture manufacturer, Shackletons , have complete a turnkey project for Eothen Homes Wallsend development in Newcastle, helping to deliver a groundbreaking model of care in which each person’s quality of life is the over-riding priority.

Committed to developing a real family style environment where people feel at home, the home is split into four households with 13 residents in each. Every household has its own kitchen, dining and lounge areas as well as various spaces for activities around the home.

Eothen Homes asked Shackletons for help with all aspects of the design. A different interior scheme for the four individual households was required but stipulated with the need to project quality and a homely and stylish appearance.

Focusing on dementia care and the need for a relaxed and caring family environment, Shackletons applied their considerable experience in dementia friendly design to provide furniture, fabrics, and finishing touches.

Providing a first class look Shackletons completed a bespoke project. All bedroom furniture, fitted bookcases, furniture and soft furnishings were especially crafted to provide the perfect combination of organisation and comfort.

Christine Hardy Operations Manager at Eothen Homes says: “Eothen Homes are extremely pleased with the finished result. Everyone who visits the home comments on how wonderful it looks and the families of the residents are very positive about the overall look and feel of the place.

“The Shackletons sales manager for the north, Sarah Thompson, worked with the home in partnership from concept through to the fabulous end result.”

Shackletons have been in the business of creating comfort for over 50 years and are the UK’s leading design and manufacturer of specialist contract furniture for the healthcare sector.
