Description

Renovations of old people's homes are an opportunity to fit out the premises to install new equipment or modernise technical aids. The aim is always to reduce staff costs and improve the lives of residents. This is illustrated by the Brionne retirement home.

In the renovated wing, the rooms are all equipped with ceiling tracks, as well as the shared bathroom and the motor room.

Les rénovations d’Ehpad sont l’occasion d’aménager les locaux pour installer de nouveaux équipements ou moderniser les aides techniques. Toujours dans l’optique de réduire les charges des salariés et d’améliorer la vie des pensionnaires. Illustration à la maison de retraite de Brionne.

Dans l’aile rénovée, les chambres sont toutes équipées de rails plafonniers, ainsi que la salle de bains commune et la salle de motricité.
