Willowbrook Care Home in Birmingham provides specialist support for people with dementia and mental health problems who need personal care or nursing care on a long-term basis. The care home recently extended its premises to create more bedrooms and circulation areas for residents. Altro floors were used throughout the 2,000m² new-build extension.
Altro Wood Safety flooring was installed in the circulation areas, dayrooms and bedrooms. In all ensuites and assisted bathrooms the company’s Pisces range was fitted and the Walkway 20 range installed in the laundry room.
Paul Willis, Willowbrook Care Home’s owner, selected the Altro products after meeting with the company and C&C Flooring, who provided guidance on specifying for care homes, with a particular focus on floors for residents with dementia. Paul said: “We chose Altro Wood Safety, Altro Pisces and Altro Walkway 20 to help provide a homely appearance with excellent sustained slip resistance, durability and ease of maintenance. The end result is superb and we have had many wonderful, positive comments from residents, families and numerous healthcare professionals.”
C&C Flooring installed the floors, Director. Roo Williams, added: “We have a strong relationship with Altro, the support we get is unbelievable. It makes our job as a flooring contractor a whole lot easier and the products themselves are second to none. The Altro products are performing extremely well. The best feature is the performance, after years of traffic they always look like new.”
