The Grange Nursing Home, successful cost saving and how JTM Service have helped.

The Grange Nursing Home provides nursing and personal care in Warkworth, Northumberland.

The nursing home cares for up to 23 older residents, with residents’ bedrooms personalised to respond to each individual’s needs and to help people with dementia.

The Challenge Faced

The Grange Nursing Home had laundry equipment that was ageing and proving increasingly unreliable.

At the same time their contract with their existing laundry provider was very expensive as they had been tied into a long-term rental agreement which wasn’t providing the benefits they needed.

They wanted a solution which was fit for purpose, provided better infection control, more reliability, and at a better cost. They turned to JTM Service to help them with this.

How JTM Service helped

The solution required was better, more reliable machines whilst saving costs. We worked with Janine Hancock, Home Manager, and the team at The Grange to survey their site, understand their individual requirements and advise on what machines would best suit their need.

We proposed an upgrade to new Miele Professional equipment and recommended a PW5105 Washing Machine with a 10kg load capacity, low water and energy consumption, and Miele’s patented honeycomb drum technology to help with gentle laundry care; a PT8303 Slimline Gas Dryer incorporating the PerfectDry system; and a PG8059 Hygiene Dishwasher for the kitchen which achieves the strictest levels of hygiene and infection control using its freshwater system.

The upgrade to these new machines was done under a 3 year lease agreement, avoiding an expensive, long term rental agreement which The Grange had previously been tied into. The result was a saving of nearly £4,000 a year!

What the client says

Janine Hancock, Home Manager stated “We are delighted with the new equipment which has been installed. The old equipment was becoming increasingly unreliable due to age, yet we were still paying a high monthly rental charge to the previous supplier but not getting any benefit. This is now saving us £300 per month. We are also delighted with the new Hygiene dishwasher which will help us further with meeting infection control measures in the home.”

“We have been very impressed with JTM Service and I would highly recommend them to other businesses including Care Home providers.”
