Shackletons - Care Industry News


Care home furniture specialists Shackletons work with turnkey development company to the care sector, the DECS Group, to complete a 1.3 million pound 20 bed care home design and development contract in Yorkshire.

The extension and refurbishment programme at the independent and family run Inwood House residential care home in Horbury, West Yorkshire, centred on enabling the care home to continue to deliver first class care within the best possible environment.

Enabling this Shackletons provided a design and manufacture consultation service for the 20 bedrooms, two lounges and reception areas. Bespoke furniture was designed and manufactured to the care home’s specific needs, including bedroom furniture and seating allowing for individual residents’ mobility and comfort needs. Occasional furniture fit for visiting family and friends, and all soft furnishings were designed and manufactured by Shackletons.

Offering an in-house café, hairdressing salon, orangery and bespoke reception and waiting area the project completed this month and can boast being one of the most modern and comprehensive care environments in the Wakefield area.

Sarah Thompson, regional sales manager at Shackletons says: “We have worked with the DECS Group on full turnkey projects before and had no hesitation in working with them for this contract. Their genuine desire to do a job well were the right fit for us – we look forward to working together more closely in the future.”

Shackletons have been in the business of creating comfort for over 50 years and are the UK’s leading provider of specialist care furniture which is manufactured in Yorkshire.
