How powered wheelchair stair climbers can help care homes as Covid restrictions relax

As the covid-19 lockdown eases over the coming weeks, care homes face further challenges to the way they operate.

Care home restrictions easingThe good news is that one nominated person will be allowed to visit their loved one in a care home if they receive a negative lateral flow coronavirus test before entry and wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

Care workers have battled ample issues since lockdown began in March 2020 yet now, they will be tasked with further disruption to comply with the changing restrictions.

As the frequency of visitors starts to rise, staff will be required to regularly manoeuvre the residents around the home.

Consequently, care home managers need to seek solutions that enable their care home residents and staff to remain safe and comfortable during this process.

Stanley offers a range of mobility products for use in residential care environments, designed to improve user mobility, comfort, and boost the quality of care given to those that are less mobile. The wheelchair powered stair climbers are designed to help to improve operational efficiency, safety, and the professional image of residential care establishments nationwide.

The use of a mobility powered stair climber in manoeuvring people on the stairs not only reduces the risk of injury to the care home staff, but it helps to protect the resident during transportation.

Evacuation and fire safety important

Our powered stair climbers are especially useful for fire evacuations and lift failures, providing a safe and reliable solution for those in their hour of need. These health & safety procedures may have been overlooked as other processes took priority during the pandemic.
