When choosing beds for care homes, durability and comfort will no doubt be at the top of your list. Purchasing a solid and robust bed base, whether a divan or metal frame, is crucial to ensure a long life for your bed and a foundation for a heavy-duty mattress.
Choosing a mattress that is waterproof makes sense in a care home to cope with old-age incontinence or disorders associated with dementia. But what kind of waterproof mattress do you need? Reinforced Beds offer a range of waterproof mattresses, all of which are long-lasting and hygienic. The type you choose will depend on the kind of needs your care home deals with.
The Thornley Express PVC waterproof mattress is an example of a coiled spring mattress. On the more affordable end of the spectrum, this comfortable mattress has a waterproof covering over its supportive springs. This mattress is perfect for a regular care home setting, where there is a low risk of challenging behaviour and any associated bed damage. This mattress is also a great option for those elderly residents that prefer a medium firmness for a comfortable night’s sleep.
For a more robust option, a waterproof heavy-duty mattress is a perfect choice. With no need to turn, this mattress is both firm and easy to clean. Made from a combination of foam and memory foam, its mattress cover is easy to remove and clean. This mattress is an NHS approved choice and is suitable for residents that need a firm option. This mattress would be suitable for a care home that caters for residents that suffer from incontinence and dementia, who require a more robust mattress.
The anti-vandal heavy-duty mattress is the most robust waterproof mattress available at Reinforced Beds. This is the best option for a care home whose residents suffer from high incontinence. This mattress is carefully crafted with a waterproof cover with seams that have been sealed with heat to stop any liquid ruining the mattress.
This firm mattress is especially suited to care homes that also deal with frequent challenging behaviour. Created with robustness in mind, the mattress is strong enough to withstand attempts to damage it.
Whether your care home takes care of elderly adults that need a robust but comfortable bed, or those who require a more specialist option, Reinforced Beds have a full range of heavy-duty mattresses to choose from.
