Case Study – Rolling Room Care Home Refurbishment

Rolling Room Care Home Refurbishment

Majesticare is a privately owned collection of 11 luxury care homes located across England. Their care homes specialise in residential, nursing and dementia care for the elderly. They strive to provide a luxury yet distinctly homely atmosphere with an emphasis on person-centred care.

The Problem

Majesticare originally began a group-wide rolling care home refurbishment program dealing with multiple suppliers. It became quickly apparent during the early stages that this was not the best route to complete the project. Majesticare homes began receiving inconsistent furniture both in style, colours and quality. Coupled with long delivery times which, as well as increased room downtime, held up the program for a considerable amount of time, made carrying on in this format a mammoth task.

Dayex's Care Home Refurbishment Solution

Dayex approached Majesticare and formed an ongoing partnership. Dayex developed furniture room schemes specific to the Managing Director’s vision of a consistent luxury look and feel across the group. These bedrooms would be refurbished on a rolling basis.

Multiple mood boards were created for the care home refurbishment project. These mood boards incorporated both bespoke items of furniture and fabrics as well as from the Dayex stock offering. This was an especially important feature to Majesticare as it allowed a fully bespoke package to be created. Once the furniture had been selected, Dayex began to virtually warehouse the furniture that isn’t included as part of the extensive stock range. This was then provided on an as and need basis when a room became available and was in need of updating.

Each Majesticare care home was provided with a digital representation of the colour schemes and a list of pre specified furniture, allowing easy ordering at home level. Each time a room became available, an order was placed for the specific room number and colour scheme. 5 days later the room would be delivered and installed by the Dayex delivery team.
