Aged care

Working together to create communities for all

We know that care home residents may face physical challenges, complex learning difficulties or additional needs. Our aim is to work with you to create welcoming, attractive, inclusive and safe spaces to help residents live well physically and emotionally, using durable floors and walls solutions developed with this in mind.

We have worked on developing floors and walls for care homes over many years. We’ve collaborated with associations including Care England, Design in Mental Health and the University of Stirling’s renowned Dementia Services Development Centre and worked with them to develop total solutions for this sector. We’re confident that we understand the design challenges you face but we’re never complacent; the needs of the residents you’re creating a home for come first and you know these best. We’re here to listen then help you choose the right floors and walls in the right colours for the right areas.

We partner with you on care homes with very different purposes. This includes nursing homes, where residents may need 24-hour care, residential homes, where people live permanently, or stay while recuperating, and retirement villages where the emphasis is on creating a community. Residents are of all ages and have hugely varying needs. Many of you tell us that your priority is giving residents independence as this has such an important impact on wellbeing, both physically and mentally. Achieving this in a space that feels like home, not a clinic, makes even more difference. This is our starting point.
