With a shared goal of providing optimum comfort, Renray Healthcare have partnered with Greensleeves Buckler’s Lodge Care Home, kitting it out with a total of around 6,000 products. This exclusive case study details the collaboration and its extensive benefits.

Nestled in the woods of Berkshire and boasting grand vistas of the countryside, Buckler’s Lodge really is a building to behold. It is a blueprint for the contemporary luxury care home. It’s state of the art features offers the very best in respite, nursing, personal and dementia care.

Partnering with Renray Healthcare as its’ full interior solutions provider the project completed and has recently welcomed its first residents to this 80-bed care home.

We supplied around 6,000 items for the entire home including beds, furniture, cinema room and hair salon items.

All 80 rooms were completed with our market leading range of electric profiling beds to suit all needs.

Greensleeves worked with our design team and project manager Kate to create a traditional yet contemporary twist to the home. Our large range of products is perfectly suited to realise this dream.

“Every brief starts with a blank piece of paper – and because of Renray’s diverse ranges, I know I had real creative flexibility when it came to furnishing Buckler’s Lodge.” 

Buckler’s Lodge needed the style of a high-end hotel style while also feeling comfortable and homely for residents.

Renray tailored its products to best suit the needs residents. We also provided advice on interior design, pressure area care, bedroom furniture, soft furnishings, beds and flooring.

We were exceptionally excited to be part of this project with all its endless charm from art deco cinema to grand piano.

“It really was a reassurance to know that all bedrooms, communal areas and even the dining room were fitted with Renray furniture.

“You could see and feel the quality. I know they have been around for over 50 years and they are going to be around for a lot more. The residents will be so at ease knowing they are at home rather than ‘in a home’.” 

Communal spaces were thoughtfully designed to allow for private space as well as open areas. A small library with room dividers and booths mean residents can sit in solace.

Because we have the capability to react to any bespoke requests, we could move from functionality of one room to another with the utmost ease.

Through flexible and open design planning residents can navigate a plethora of locations in the home without feeling closed off or claustrophobic. These areas include social café style dining areas, hair salons, libraries, cinemas and safe outdoor areas.

From ceiling, walls, floor and everything in between were all carefully planned to best support the resident. From lighting to specific colours in specific rooms to help wellbeing, everything was thought about in minute detail.

The need for Buckler’s Lodge to be carefully designed with flexibility in space through creative furniture solutions. Creating a wow factor whilst still maintaining age appropriateness and dementia friendliness. Those who seek extra safety due to mobility challenges, vulnerability or physical limitations should feel right at home at Buckler’s Lodge.
