Dayex Guide to: Care Home Beds

Care Home Beds

Our service at Dayex is geared towards helping our customers get the most out of their most important asset, the bedrooms.

For the elderly or the infirm, spending a lot of time in their bedrooms is not an uncommon thing. This means that the right care home bed is crucial for both comfort and their physical needs. To make this possible, it is important to choose the right kind of bed to deliver the best care, both to protect your resident and your staff.

This guide aims to look at the different types of care home beds that Dayex provide and help to make an informed decision over the right bed for your room.
