Supplying furniture for a new build nursing home
Help create a homely environment using Shackletons furniture
Shackletons were approached by Farnham Mill Nursing Home to supply them with furniture for their new build home. Their aims for the project was to create the best nursing and dementia home in the local area.
Manager, Gabriel Martinez had the following to say about the project and working with Shackletons.
“We wanted the new build to be light and bright, with the feeling of all the comforts of home. Approaching the design, we took into consideration the needs of our dementia residents. It was important to us to create an environment that was calming. We achieved this through creating clear themes on each of the three floors. This allows our residents to easily navigate through the home.”
“The service we receive from Shackletons was brilliant. They were prompt in organising samples, which allowed the residents and staff to try out some of their favourites. The residents played a big role in helping us select the furniture, at the end of the day it’s them who use the chairs. Adding in the recliner chairs really made the lounges feel more like home.”
“My favourite area in the nursing home is ground floor lounge. The bright colour scheme and large windows bring the outside in. We’re really proud of our gardens, and it’s wonderful to open the windows on a sunny day so the residents can hear the ducks splashing in the pond.”
“Quality is something we strive to achieve in everything that we do. That’s why we choose to work with Shackletons. We have worked with Shackletons for nearly 10-years. We love their quality, and their furniture allows our nursing homes to stand the test of time.”
