Shackletons – Care Home Transformation

INTERIOR SOLUTION AS INDIVIDUAL AS THE CARE

Premier care provider Excelcare hired Shackletons to develop a new interior look that would provide homely, comfortable, and modern accommodation for the residents of their private residences within their care community, Hunters Down in Huntingdon.

The brief for this exclusive refurbishment was to create an environment that provided a level of comfort synonymous with homeliness whilst supporting the variations of care given, such as nursing, dementia nursing, residential and palliative care.

Five luxury suites, quiet rooms, family meeting room and a library have all benefitted from a Shackletons makeover.  Soft cream fabrics with muted purples and greens have been used against more traditional, simply styled furniture in quieter rooms; whilst in the library tartans and checks in caramels and browns work with high back seating and occasional furniture to create a sophisticated reading space.

“Shackletons helped translate our brief by developing a stimulating environment that ensures transition to care and ongoing care within Hunters Down is as easy as possible. We believe maximum comfort, convenience and stimulation has been achieved for the people who live here – it’s as individual as the care provided. Once again, many thanks for your support”. Says Charlotte Spirito-Edwards, Excelcare.

The Shackletons service doesn’t just provide an exceptional product, quick turnaround, and responsive customer service; it also provides choice and expert guidance to ensure comfort, mobility, safety, freedom and enjoyment is provided without compromise for any residential or nursing care environment.
