Springtime Aged Care recently completed refurbishment at the facility which saw the installation of a wall cladding and safety flooring combo from Altro .
Elizabeth Morgan, proprietor of Springtime, trialled two en-suites - one with Altro Whiterock wall cladding and Altro VM20 safety flooring and the other with an alternative wall and floor vinyl system.
Elizabeth loved the fresh clean look of the wall cladding and safety flooring in the Altro en-suite and commented that the other bathroom looked dull and slightly worn, despite having just been installed. This convinced her to specify the Altro combination.
Springtime Aged Care is in Sydenham in Melbourne’s outer west and is a leading aged care provider offering the full range of residential services including high and low care, and respite care.
Ms Morgan is fully aware that deciding on aged care accommodation can be an emotional time for the individual and their family, which is why she continually endeavours to keep an attractive, yet fully functional, fitout at her facility.
”Recently my wall repair costs more than doubled from $18,000 to $42,000 per year after I introduced some new mobility aids. I fully expect a dramatic reduction now that I have Whiterock installed,” she says, ”Over the long term, Altro will help sell my business to new clients as it keeps looking good for longer. There is nothing worse than a damaged bathroom to turn clients away”
With Whiterock wall cladding and Altro VM20 safety flooring combined, the facility now has a watertight, seamless, wipe clean surface. Dirt and bacteria have nowhere to hide and the fully sealed smooth surface makes it extremely easy to keep clean.
Altro VM20 safety flooring has a slip resistance life expectancy of up to 20 years, offering aged care providers piece of mind knowing that their staff and residents are safe from slipping.
