The Lakeside House Nursing Home

Amazon Commercial Washing Machine from WashCo Meets all the Requirements of Cardiff Nursing Home

The Lakeside House Nursing Home close to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff has a total of 50 beds for long term residents requiring various levels of nursing care, including some double rooms, many of which have en suite facilities. Housed in an attractively extended period building with a large garden area which residents can use during the summer, the home prides itself on the quality of its care and the range of activities laid on for residents.

All the laundry – bedding, towels, kitchen and dining room items, and personal clothing – is done on site by dedicated laundry staff and the laundry is in operation from 7am to 4pm every day, with care staff often doing additional urgent items during the evenings. Just over a year ago a new commercial washing machine was needed and Phil Cliffe, the owner of the home, looked at options from various suppliers. His choice was an Amazon HSF 14kg commercial washing machine from WashCo which, according to Jayne Pointer, General Manager of the home, offered the best value while meeting all the specifications the home required. “We opted for WashCo’s fixed price hire scheme,” they told us, as this helps us with budgeting and we know that if ever there is a problem, there will be no nasty financial surprise. We are very happy with the performance of the machine.”
