The Four Seasons Healthcare Group, one of the UK’s largest care home providers, has teamed up with CleanedUp to provide permanent hand sanitiser stations in all of its 187 Four Seasons and brighterkind care homes throughout the country.
Four Seasons Group Chief Operating Officer, Lorraine McGarry-Wall commented “Although hand sanitiser is nothing new in our care homes, these permanent dispensers hold enough hand sanitiser for 10,000 uses, providing long-lasting protection without the need of constant refilling. Good hand hygiene throughout our homes is essential and the dispensers have been very well received by our care teams and residents alike. As we look to ease restrictions on visitors to our homes in the future, the stations will be a vital part of our infection control measures to protect the safety of everyone living and working in our homes.”
As the impact of Covid-19 developed, Four Seasons approached CleanedUp when they heard they had taken their expertise in producing free-standing mobile phone charging stations to make hand sanitiser dispensing stations.
CleanedUp is a spin-off of ChargedUp, Europe’s largest phone charging network. CleanedUp was created as the start of the COVID19 pandemic when the company found its revenue streams dried up due to lockdown. So, they re-purposed their manufacturing to help stop the spread of the virus by providing hand sanitising dispensing stations.
Lorraine added, “The fact that we were able to support a business that has had to adapt due to the circumstances of Covid-19 was a bonus. The team at CleanedUp ensured the dispensing stations were manufactured and delivered to all our care homes in the short timescales agreed.”
“Care homes have had a really tough time over the last few months, and their staff have continued to provide the care and support their residents need, even if that means putting themselves at risk. Being able to help make the homes even safer is something we’re proud to be part of.” said CleanedUp CEO, Hugo Tilmouth.
