Improving quality of life: How equipment can make a difference in a care home

In a care home, ensuring the best quality of life for residents is of utmost importance. But how equipment can make a difference in a care home?  From mobility aids to specialised beds and fall sensors, the right equipment can make a significant difference in the overall well-being and comfort of individuals in a care home setting.

Improved safety: Correct equipment can help to prevent accidents and injuries.  We offer a range of specialised beds – often called ultra low beds which means if the patient is prone to falls, they are far closer to the floor.  We offer sensor mats for chairs, beds and floors, alongside wall sensors.  We also offer bed rails and mobile hoists.

Increased independence: Correct equipment can help residents to be more independent and perform activities of daily living on their own.   We offer overbed tables, chairs with additional features that allow residents to be tilted in space and moved around in comfort.  

Improved comfort: Correct equipment can help to improve residents' comfort. For example, adjustable beds, pressure-relieving equipment such as mattresses, and hoists with slings can help to prevent pressure sores and pain.

Reduced workload for caregivers: Correct equipment can help to reduce the workload for caregivers. For example, lifting equipment such as hoists and patient handling aids can help caregivers to safely move and lift residents. 

Improved quality of life: Correct equipment can help to improve residents' quality of life by making it easier for them to move around, perform activities of daily living, and live independently.

Bariatric care: Specific bariatric equipment can make a real difference to the needs of some patients.  We offer bariatric beds up to 250kg, mattresses to 300kg for high risk patients, ward care chairs up to 350kg SWL and bariatric commodes.  Just get in touch and let us know what you need.


  • Choose the right equipment for the resident's needs.
  • Make sure that the equipment is properly installed and maintained.
  • Train staff on how to use the equipment safely and effectively.
  • Monitor residents' use of the equipment and make adjustments as needed.

With the right equipment, residents can experience increased independence, improved mobility, and enhanced safety, making a real difference to their experience in a care home.
