Window Restrictors mean Safety for Care Homes
We have supplied window restrictors to The Caring Homes Healthcare Group across sites spanning from Fife to Dorset following regulatory requirements from The Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The Caring Homes Healthcare Group is one of the most respected care home operators in the UK, with 59 care homes across the country. The organisation provides quality accredited, award-winning residential, nursing and specialist dementia care to elderly people.
Their need to install window restrictors follows updates to the CQC regulatory requirements which state that window restrictors should be suitably robust to prevent vulnerable and determined adults from forcing them to open beyond the 100mm restriction. The Caring Homes Healthcare Group took the opportunity to review and update the window restrictors used for all of its care homes.
The Caring Homes Healthcare Group chose Cardea Solutions over other companies due to the quality of their window restrictors, which meet the current legislation and are tested to British standards. They were also able to provide a solution quickly and efficiently.
Cardea delivered over 2,000 window restrictors to be fitted across the care home estate in a project that was delivered on time and to budget.
Adrian Parker, Facilities Manager and Health & Safety Manager said: “Cardea provided a fantastic service and are extremely good at what they do. We’ve worked with Cardea for more than two years without an issue and we continue to work with them on projects moving forward.”
