At AKW, we understand the difficulties faced by people as a result of disabilities, illness, trauma, ageing and other long term conditions and are experienced in helping overcome issues in the care home. Ultimately, we can help you to help your patients live as independent lives as possible by making ordinary tasks, such as daily washing, easier to do through inclusive kitchen and bathroom design.
