New equipment enhancing care at Crook Lane

by CWP News - 16 June 2016

A number of CWP service users are benefitting from new specialist equipment at Crook Lane Respite Unit in Winsford.

In the last month the unit has received a high tech Cosyfit bed and two specialist chairs to provide optimum positioning, postural management and pressure relief for service users.

The new Cosyfit bed offers an alternative and safe environment for service users with restricted mobility to rest and relax. The bed has been designed to allow service users to watch television or enjoy sensory surroundings whilst relaxing in a safe environment.

Unit Manager Nargus Yasin said: “We’ve already had a number of service users benefit from our new Cosyfit bed and the reaction has been really positive.”

“Our service users have benefited from the Cosyfit bed as it provides them with a safe place to relax in comfort whilst allowing them to remain involved in a social environment in the main lounge area. 

“The major benefit of the Cosyfit bed is that it provides a safe, comfortable environment in the main area of the unit so patients can stay in our main room and interact with staff and other service users. It’s all about social inclusion.”

Crook Lane specialist health respite provides care for adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities, in a relaxing environment to meet their individual needs and that of their families.
