Herncliffe Care Home in Keighley

Herncliffe Care Home, based in Keighley, West Yorkshire, provides dementia, residential and nursing care. Founded 30 years ago, the family-run care home has 115 beds spread over six care units, and 200 members of staff. It has established a great reputation which is testament to the excellent care provided by its professional team.

Overcoming problems

For a number of years Herncliffe Care Home had used the same machines and tumble dryers but after experiencing a number of issues, with machines frequently breaking down and the high volumes of laundry the care home produced backing up, they approached Wolf Laundry.

Wolf’s Solution

Wolf Laundry provided five Schulthess proLine W-Series 12kg machines to Herncliffe Care Home. The five machines
facilitate large washing loads in less time and fast washing programmes, saving Herncliffe Care Home time and money.

Importantly, even more so for a care home, is the disinfection programmes and hygiene monitoring the machines boast which guarantee hygienic, clean and germ-free laundry. They’re also designed for low energy consumption and offer environmentally friendly wetClean.

Our engineers also provided full product training for the four-strong laundry teams to ensure that they could self-operate the machines, understand the different programmes, and how to upkeep and maintain the machines for
optimum efficiency.
