Looking after our elderly has now become a function of conscience and a legacy of debt we owe them as valued senior citizens. Being able to provide them with the levels of care and comfort they deserve is happily on the increase.
Run by Gloucestershire County Council, Great Western Court Care Home in the centre of historic Gloucester provides personal care to thirty people. As a haven for healing and rehabilitation they provide re-ablement, interim placement and community respite services to help people return to their own homes wherever possible.
In a recent refurbishment, the Great Western Court Care Home would need 300m2 of flooring for seventeen of their resident’s bedrooms. Achieving stunning looks coupled to high levels of safety performance would be the challenge. A challenge well-met by the appointed installer who specified Gerflor’s Taralay Impression Control safety flooring. As a true healthcare, multi-specialist Gerflor has over seventy years’ experience and have developed to become an expert in this field. They manufacture and market innovative, decorative, durable, hygienic and environmentally responsible flooring for a host of healthcare-related solutions.
Based in Coleford, on the edge of the Wye Valley, Mike Burris Flooring is a gem of a success story. It’s a flooring company that has one man at the helm who is determined that quality will be the shining star that illuminates everything he does.
Mike Burris commented, “I’m an approved contractor for Gloucestershire County Council and get invited to quote for a lot of council properties. In fact, I’ve worked at this site before and they’ve been very pleased with our work”. Working in most healthcare facilities can sometimes be an onerous task due to the constraints of the actual environment. Mike Burris goes on to further say, “It was a bit of a challenge as we had to schedule the work around the patients and make sure we kept the areas free from furniture and tools”.
Ensuring that the care home would get the best fit for purpose flooring, this would fall upon Mike Burris’s final specification decision. He further said, “The centre approached me with concerns over the existing carpets and asked for my opinion on what would be more suitable”. He simply adds. “I specified Taralay Impression Control from Gerflor because it’s very easy to install, easy to weld and one of the best to clean. We fitted-out seventeen of their bedrooms in Noma Rustic totalling nearly 300m2 and it looks fantastic”.
