Bio-Rite invests in new laundry facility


n Leading infection-control company and newly-franchised business, Bio-Rite, has invested £50,000 in a new state-of-the-art laundry facility at its head offi ce facility in Alton, Hampshire. The installation of the resource, which has now been completed, features equipment supplied by JLA, the commercial and industrial laundry specialists, and will be used to provide decontamination services to the NHS and care homes. “It is important for organisations like the NHS and care homes to be able to prove the effi ciency of the decontamination of care equipment and items such as mattresses,” confi rmed Alan Wright, managing director at Bio-Rite. “Our new laundry service has been specifi cally designed with this in mind. A detailed record is kept of each procedure including temperature and the length of time care equipment is decontaminated for, this ensures full track and traceability on behalf of our clients.


“Equipment supplied by JLA includes a


SMART Wash machine which combines industrial-strength quality with state-of-the-


art digital intelligence,” explained Wright. “The washer management tool allows us to monitor and record all the machine’s vital statistics including wash temperature and cycle duration. This accurate, automatic digital traceability aids compliance with regulations such as CFPP01-04 and also demonstrate a ‘best practice’ approach in line with HACCP, environmental health and


other guidelines.


“In addition, we have also extended our decontamination chamber so we can cope with growing workloads,” continued Alan. “Much of the assignments will come direct but we have also opened up the availability of the new laundry service as an option to our franchisees who may not have their own facility.”

n Mark Muller runs Promedica24 in the Dorset/Hampshire area. The business off ers a 24-hour, live-in care service as an alternative to residential care homes.


Mark has always been passionate about delivering high quality care to those in need, having previously spent 10 years working for a large luxury care provider. He said: “It’s important that we understand that going into residential care is not a choice made willingly. For those forced out of their homes, they leave behind a safe, familiar environment,


a lifetime of treasured possessions and memories, and, of course, the person that they love. It’s heart-breaking.” Mark joined Promedica24 as an employee before becoming a franchise partner in August 2015. He currently helps 31 families with everyday tasks as well as more advanced requirements such as Dementia, disability and end- of-life care. The company’s core value ‘there’s no place like home’ continues to make a very real diff erence in the lives of those they serve. Mark’s advice to anyone looking into a care franchise is: “Be a resource not just a sales person. Try to leave something behind people will remember you for. Always contact the referrer to let them know when their client/service user is doing ok – everyone likes job satisfaction.”
