Adaptations for carers and the care sector

Posted 21.01.2022

We work with carers and care homes across the UK to provide a safer and more comfortable driving and travelling experience for both the carers and residents.

By offering a wide range of car adaptations designed specifically to improve safety, accessibility and comfort, we help to relieve some of the physical strain required by carers to help residents/patients in and out the car and increase the safety of the residents once inside the car.

Not only that, we understand how important it is for people to get out and about on enrichment days and feel apart of the community which is why it is vital to ensure carers and care homes have the right resources to do so.

How we helped Ludlow Street Healthcare

We helped Ludlow Street Healthcare with their 2020 VW Caddy by fitting:

  • Front polycarbonate safety screen – To protect the driver from physical contact but maintain visual and audio communication
  • Rear polycarbonate safety screen – To ensure the occupant doesn’t interfere with anything that is placed in the boot which could pose as a hazard
  • Rubberised flooring – To ensure easy cleaning
  • Single rear seat & harness – To ensure the occupant has plenty of space and easy access from both sides of the vehicle

They were delighted with the vehicle as it will not only improve things for their client, but for the employees too. It will also allow them to spend more time in the community as their previous vehicle just wasn’t suitable and prevented them from taking clients out!
