For those just catching up with us on the blog we have spent the last couple of articles revisiting our contract bed collections here at Millbrook in anticipation of the predicted busyness of 2012. We went over the International Collection and its fitting selection of hotel contract beds and then we moved on to the Academic Collection and it’s suitability for that particular industry.

Residential homes and care facilities for the elderly or the sick have been in the news a lot recently for all sorts of reasons. One of the primary issues raised about today’s healthcare services in UK was quality of care. This is of course crucial to any area of the healthcare industry. Millbrook contract beds has been manufacturing and supplying industries like this for over 60 years now and we have come to understand how to produce the finest quality contract beds for residential and private care.
Why is the contract bed so important in this industry?
Our experience in the hospitality sector differs somewhat to our experience in the healthcare sector as the requirements of a healthcare contract bed over a hotel bed are quite substantial. As a residential home or care facility it is important to prioritise what is needed from the beds in terms of function. Luxury and refinement are important in contract bedroom furniture but when it comes to care and the nursing of illness or ailments it has to be more than just a bed.
Millbrook’s design philosophy has created and crafted the Healthcare Collection with this in mind.
What makes these contract beds ideal for healthcare?
The Healthcare collection enhances and adjusts the bed experience so they become more than just a bed for sleeping in. The discerning contract bed buyer will know that quality and comfort should never be compromised regardless of industry or budget.
The Purity and The Therapy are adjustable bed models that have opulent action features and choices of comfort levels so they can be attuned to an individual’s requirements. This five-way adjustable action system comes with an integral handset control so it can be operated by whoever is using it standing up or lying down. This basically gives control and freedom to whoever is using the bed, or allows for the carer to control the movement of the contract bed if required. At the push of a button the supportive position that is required for the person using it can be effortlessly achieved.
The beds that are used in these facilities, hospitals and homes need to be of the best possible design and meet a high standard of quality and functionality. Those that suffer from physical ailments, disabilities, back pains or illnesses will find their waking lives much easier to handle. With technology allowing us to control so many aspects of our daily lives, Millbrook’s Healthcare Collection gives that control back to those who may have lost it to some extent. Fingertip control functions gives free reign over how they sleep or relax with an added massage option from The Purity contract bed that has been designed to rub down pains and aches while The Therapy has been specifically designed to facilitate good health with full responsiveness to body contour moulding.
Why choose Millbrook?
Millbrook contract beds have benefited both hospitality and healthcare industries for many years and we are always recognising that individual requirements need to be considered and catered to. Our Healthcare Collection is about providing the right level of comfort, quality and most importantly, control, to people that are of an older age or people who suffer from a disability or an illness.

In the nursing and healthcare industry caring for the elderly is a big part of the job. Nursing homes, retirement villages and residential care homes specialise in this particular area. As a person gets older they find themselves experiencing and facing various physical ailments that hamper their health and affect their quality of life. A common struggle amongst more mature people is that they suffer with back problems and severe disabilities; a contributing factor to this is that the contract beds they sleep in are not designed to support and aide them appropriately enough.
It is important in the nursing and healthcare industry to accommodate and understand the needs and requirements of your residents/patients. Caring for them means looking after their well-being and it is common for elderly people to spend time napping, resting and recovering. They need to be able to do this in the right kind of quality and comfort.
Millbrook contract beds understand this need and the importance of quality and comfort factors in contract beds more than anyone. That’s why the collections we offer cater to these scenarios, ailments and industries.
As a retirement or residential care home it is paramount that the contract beds should be functional and well designed. Adjustable contract beds are the finest choice in this regard as they offer up refinement, relaxation, the opportunities for recuperation and a standard of luxury that can only benefit someone of an ailing disposition.
Millbrook Contract Beds offers its Healthcare collection as the perfect choice for the elderly or unable. There are two contract beds in the collection that tailor themselves to the needs of a patient/resident or guest that suffers from any kind of physical discomfort.
The Therapy is a contract bed that is highly beneficial to health and fully responsive to body contours. It has a five way adjustable position, operated by handset control, which gives independence to the person sleeping in it. The pocket spring mattress has a heat sensitive vicso memory foam feature that ensures absolute comfort and soothing bliss. The Therapy comes with a massage option also; perfect for all the little aches and pains.
The Purity has been described as “an opulent action bed” that, as with The Therapy, comes with the five way adjustable action and integral handset control. It has a choice of comfort levels too. This contract bed is a sophisticated brand of luxury and comes available with smart corner protectors and leg design. All the care someone might need in a bed and at the touch of a button.
As a care home or care service it is vital to invest in contract beds that encourage good sleep and help to sustain frail or disabled bodies in a tranquil harmony. You must keep up and upgrade your facilities in the wake of other competitors increasing their numbers due to the quality facilities that they have for use in their homes. Old age pensioners and retired persons search for a home that reflects in its facilities, particularly its beds, a consideration for age and immobility. The Healthcare collection exemplifies high standards of care.
A contract bed developed and designed for healthcare industries can be the difference between improved or worsened health, sometimes, in even more severe cases, it can be the difference between a longer or shorter life. The Therapy and the Purity could be the key factors in making a residential care facility or nursing home, the place worth retiring too.
