Bushell House is one of the longest standing residential care homes in the UK, with a rich heritage that dates back to 1722. Situated in the beautiful village of Goosnargh, three miles north of Preston, Bushell House now homes up to 31 respite, convalescence and permanent residents, after opening its doors in 1743 as a charitable trust to care for the elderly.
The trustees of Bushell House maintain the Georgian retirement homes extensive history whilst ensuring its residents are still provided with the best possible care. Responsibility for that care largely falls to Sue Barr, the Registered Manager for Bushell House, who often attends healthcare conferences to keep up with the latest developments in carer technology.
As the care home has been using Aid Call products for over fifteen years, Sue frequently visits the Nurse Call providers’ exhibition stand, which is where she was introduced to the new Touchsafe Pro wireless Nurse Call system. Having been considering an upgrade to the current Bushell House system for some time, Sue requested further information about the new system, which ultimately prompted her decision to upgrade.
Bushell House’s local Nurse Call and Assistive Technology specialist, Stuart Barclay, worked closely with Sue to ensure the Touchsafe Pro Nurse Call system would meet the needs of all her staff and residents. The installation and maintenance of the system was carefully planned to accommodate the requirements of all the individuals that depend on the service.
Sue said: “Stuart has always been exceptional in looking after us over the years I’ve worked with him. He’s provided us with an excellent maintenance package that goes along with the system and ensures we never have any problems at all.”
