Greystones has 26 beds and is close to Wellsway’s local facilities. In total there is a 60 strong care team.
Residents are now able to regularly adjust their position in bed without the need for carer assistance. This gives each resident greater independence and improves carer efficiency.
Residents can sit up more easily to read or watch television by raising the head end of their mattress or relieve pressure on their legs by lifting the foot end. At night they are able to adjust their position in bed without straining so a better night’s sleep is achievable. Many find breathing easier when in a slightly elevated position and a higher foot position helps to reduce discomfort, particularly associated with oedema. The variable height feature helps with sitting and standing transfers as residents can remain safer and more stable when getting in and out of bed. Read more…..
