Innovative designs promote safety, comfort, and independence
Teal Living's expertise in furniture design and contemporary spaces has been employed at Haven Court, a hub for person centred care and support in South Shields and the UK’s largest integrated health and social care services for older people. The multi-million pound facility brings together key health, social care and voluntary sector services to improve the range, quality and co-ordination of care and support to enable the ageing population live independently for longer.
Developed by South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust, the state-of-the-art facility used the expertise of the healthcare furniture manufacturer to deliver furniture designed to promote safety, comfort, and independence throughout the innovatively designed consulting rooms, communal, dining and lounge areas, roof terrace, and day service spaces.
With a focus on ergonomic design, distinctive styling, infection control, postural support, pressure management and dementia, design and materials were applied created to provide high-end tailor made solutions that would meet the specific needs of residential and respite care, day and rehabilitation services.
Sara Jane Farrow, national sales manager at Teal Living says: 'Our R&D experience and knowledge helped drive the interior design for Haven Court in what we believe has created a space that inspires and invigorates in a very non-clinical way.'
