Anchor has partnered with Legrand’s Assisted Living & Healthcare division to maintain the grouped living systems and nurse call systems that keep its staff and residents safe and supported. Anchor is England’s largest not-for-profit provider of care and housing for older people, working with more than 40,000 customers.
Legrand Assisted Living & Healthcare is providing comprehensive maintenance to all of the Anchor care homes throughout England on a 24-hour a day, 365 days a year basis. The maintenance work will be carried out by Legrand’s Tynetec and Aid Call brands in partnership with two approved installers; S.E.A in Kent and Incom Systems in West Yorkshire. This will ensure the company provides effective ‘on the ground’ maintenance coverage for Anchor’s extensive range of properties.
Tynetec manufactures and supplies grouped living systems, access control systems and telecare solutions to local authorities and housing associations across the UK, and Aid Call has been the leading UK provider of wireless nurse call systems for over 40 years. Together the business units supply Anchor with a complete solution which will maintain the high quality of care the not-for-profit organisation has always provided its residents.
Legrand’s acquisition of the maintenance contract has additionally created five new jobs within the Tynetec and Aid Call business units. Two service engineers and three administrators have been recruited to assist with the maintenance of Anchor’s retirement homes and villages. The team will be communicating with Anchor on a daily basis to ensure that they provide the highest quality of security and support to the elderly population of England.
Sales Director for Legrand Assisted Living & Healthcare, Wendy Kendall, commented: “Legrand are proud to be working in partnership with Anchor and we now see ourselves as an extension to the Anchor team, given that we will be working very closely with the organisation to ensure the continued safe provision of their valuable services.
