Care for Veterans

Adjustable bathroom equipments for ex-Servicemen and women.

Care for Veterans, providers of long term nursing care, rehabilitation, respite and award-winning end of life care to disabled ex-Servicemen and women, have opted for adjustable bathroom equipment from specialists Pressalit in a suite of new bathrooms in their Worthing rehabilitation facility.

In a new purpose-built extension, Care for Veterans (formerly the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) have installed four new ensuite bathrooms, providing residents with the flexibility, space and comfort they need and deserve.

With specialist advice from Pressalit, the new bathrooms allow for maximum maneuverability for wheelchair users, support for independent users, as well as working space for carers.

The Pressalit Plus track system, which was selected for the fully equipped shower corner, provides the ultimate in space flexibility. It allows for the shower chair to be moved horizontally into position, creating more space on one side or the other as required, alongside support arms to assist those taking a standing shower.

By the WC, support arms have been installed to assist in wheelchair transfer. Grab rails secured to the walls add a further means of support.
Andrew Lowndes, UK Sales Manager for Pressalit says, “The flexibility of the new bathrooms at Care for Veterans mean that residents can be assured of a personal environment that meets their individual needs, whilst carers and helpers can have ultimate trust in the equipment to assist them in providing the highest standard of care.”

About Care for Veterans

Care for Veterans is currently the only Hospital Home south of London (Worthing), which provides specialist nursing care for ex-Servicemen and women.

“Our residents range in age from 29 – 99, and the majority of those we care for have Acquired Brain Injury or a degenerative neurological condition, such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s.

We offer a wide range of care and rehabilitation, and having facilities for our residents that meets their individual, often complex, needs is essential to maintaining their own self-esteem and independence. We pride ourselves in having the highest standards of care, and part of this is ensuring all our facilities meet that standard too”
