MAXIMIZING SPACE FOR RESIDENTS AND THEIR ACTIVITIES
The Pines Long Term Care Facility is owned and operated by The District of Muskoka. Their mission is to optimize life with excellent care, compassion, and the comforts of home. With their team of experts including 100 volunteers, they provide 24/7 care to their 160 residents. The facility provides nursing, housekeeping, laundry, and other services including daily activities, an onsite beauty salon, a chapel, and a lending library which their residents love.
CUSTOM RETIREMENT RESIDENCE STORAGE SOLUTIONS
With their many services and residents to care for, The Pines was quickly running out of space. They were expanding their facility to include a new wing and needed help storing everything to maximize the space for the residents and their activities. So they reached out to the storage experts at Spacesaver Solutions.
Our experts worked with the staff to design a solution that would create maximum capacity in each storage area, while allowing comfortable access for staff with carts.
MOBILE SYSTEM SECURELY HOUSES RESIDENT RECORDS AND ARCHIVES
In the first storage room, we installed a Wheelhouse modular mobile system with doors to securely house all of the resident records and archives. Security in this room is extremely important to protect resident privacy, so the system is locked to ensure that only those with a key can access the files. The modular rail and floor system allows the unit to be reconfigured or relocated if necessary. It can be easily expanded with added shelving carriages in the future to accommodate more records.
LINEN STORAGE AND MORE
We also installed 3 other mobile systems for kitchen supplies, medical supplies, and activity storage, as well as 4 post and widespan shelving to store bed linens, cleaning supplies and toiletries, personal items, and food.
The staff are thrilled with their new retirement residence storage system. By compacting their storage, they are able to have more space dedicated to their residents.
TAKING CARE OF STORAGE SO THEY CAN FOCUS ON THEIR RESIDENTS
“The Spacesaver units not only optimized our limited space, but also provide the extra security for storing our confidential documents for the protection of our residents and staff.”
