Our first respite care guests of 2020 had a lovely surprise when they arrived in February to find their bedrooms have had a makeover. Each room has a colour scheme of green, blue or lilac with new curtains, crisp white bedding, cosy throws and new carpets. We’ve replaced some beds to provide storage space for a suitcase underneath and added some artwork to create a comfortable homely feel, and…we’ve added some TVs, and when we can, we’ll make sure every room has one.
Thank you to Wallfillers who supplied some of the artwork, find out more by visiting www.wallfillers.co.uk.
The Respite corridor has a new carpet and colour scheme, and for added security and safety, access has been improved with a new automatic door which is operated via a card swipe system.
One of our regular guests said: “I like the fresh, bright and updated look to the bedrooms. I have been visiting for over 20 years and love seeing the changes. It will be perfect when the bathroom is improved too; I love a bubbly bath as I don’t get an opportunity anywhere else.”
Just outside the corridor, we have a ‘hand wall’ where guests can make a donation, choose a brick and put their handprint on the wall. The money raised will be used towards refurbishing the main bathroom and adding a large Whirlpool Spa ‘bubbly’ Bath, complete with relaxing mood lighting.
If you would like to contribute to the bathroom upgrade and the TV project, please donate here.
