Thurlaston Meadows Care Home - Rugby
A bespoke Visitor Pod for this beautiful 17th century, family run care home.
Care homes all across the country have struggled with the incredible challenge of COVID restrictions imposed on them and the real need for residents and families to be able to see each other. We designed our Visitor Pod in July 2020 with safety features including the floor to ceiling partition screen, which meant that our pods already met the new government guidance effective at the beginning of November which stipulated this. Richard Perry, Managing Director of Thurlaston Meadows Care Home was able to order one knowing that his residents would be safe.
Tailored to the customer’s needs
Richard wanted to add a pitched roof and an additional full-length side window to the original Visitor Pod design, which would make the most of the lovely views across the grounds. He also required a digital wallpaper and a timber panelled ceiling along with a covered walkway stretching from the pod to the main building so that users were protected from inclement weather. Our design team liaised with Richard and worked with his ideas to produce detailed 3D drawings which were approved and the pod was installed in November with residents using it soon afterwards. Once the country is safe from COVID, the partition screen can be removed and the residents will be able to use the stunning building as a garden room which will give them many years of practical use and enjoyment.
A nephew of a resident wrote to Thurlaston Meadows to say, “I wanted you to know how much the new garden room is appreciated. I visited Ken today and used it for the first time, what a fantastic facility and such a pleasure to be able to see and converse without a mask! We really enjoyed the visit, the rules were simple to follow and everything went smoothly.”
A satisfied customer
Richard told us in his lovely feedback, “Wild Environments provided an excellent service from start to finish with providing a Garden Room for residents and family visitors to meet in comfort and safety. The grateful comments made by everyone who has used the Garden Room and even our own staff say this facility is far better than they could have imagined and they could not believe how quickly it was assembled and made available to use.”
It was a pleasure working with Richard and wonderful to see the difference this is already making to people’s lives.
