Enhance your Care Home Environment with a Covered Outdoor Area

Canopies for Care HomesWhen considering moving a relative into a care home one of the key concerns of the family is that their relative will be happy, safe and enjoy living in their new environment.

One way to help residents enjoy their stay at a care home, and to reassure families that those in the care home’s care will be happy and healthy , is to provide access to a pleasant outdoor area where fresh air can be enjoyed, light exercise can be undertaken and a connection to wildlife, nature and the outdoors can be encouraged.

A garden, terrace or patio area can become an oasis for residents; particularly in hot weather when indoors can become stuffy and uncomfortable. In the outdoors residents can sit and watch the wildlife, pursue hobbies such as gardening and lawn bowls or just stretch their legs in the fresh air.

When considering the design of your care home garden or outdoor area, it is important to consider an adequate provision of shading and shelter. Natural shade from trees can enhance the look and feel of the area however to ensure the area can be used in wet weather, manmade structures are a good idea.

A canopy or tensile structure will provide all weather cover for your area, allowing the space to be used all year round. These structures can be wall mounted to provide uninterrupted cover from inside to out, or free standing to allow you to place the canopy anywhere in your grounds. With many colours, materials and styles to choose from you are sure to find a structure to suit your setting.

At Able Canopies we offer Aluminium and Steel canopies which can be powder coated to any RAL colour you require, we also offer Glue-laminated timber canopies which are very popular due to their stunning aesthetics. Our canopies are roofed with robust polycarbonate; we also offer structures with tensile fabric roofing, these structures offer a wide choice of roofing colours, including calming pastel shades and stunning metallic colours to really add an architectural feature to your care home’s garden. All our canopies and tensile fabric structures offer exceptional cover from the rain, and high UV protection to provide residents with a cool and shaded place to sit on hot sunny days too.
