Premiere Healthcare is proud to have facilitated specialist seating rentals for over eight years, providing hundreds of individuals with the support they require in both the long and short term.
Working across the UK
Specialist sales assessor Owain Randell, who has been on the road for around two and a half years, talks us through why this service works so well.
There are many reasons why a client would require a specialist chair, from a sudden illness such as a stroke to needing a little extra help after a discharge from hospital.
Often, clients will need a chair long term, but sometimes a quick fix will be needed – enter our seating rental service.
The team can deliver a suitable solution within 48 hours, making this service ideal for those who need urgent support.
Specialist seating delivery within 48 hours
“Purchases of specialist seating can take upwards of 3 to 4 weeks to be delivered, so a rental works really well to bridge the gap.
If I can, I will leave the assessment chair with the client as it makes an instant difference to their comfort” says Owain.
With our NHS more stretched than ever, sometimes the only barrier between sending individuals home is suitable equipment being available.
If we can provide an urgent rental, this saves space in hospitals, frees up much needed funds for the NHS, and means the client is much more comfortable too.
Supporting patients in any setting
The festive period is another instance where rentals can provide a welcome solution.
If your client or loved one is able to stay at home over the holidays, a specialist seating rental is so much easier to accommodate than having their equipment delivered from their care facility.
Rise and recliners are particularly popular at this time.
When asked the most rewarding part of his job, Owain explained that “Every day is rewarding.
We have an opportunity to take someone who’s quite uncomfortable or bed bound – particularly over the pandemic period where they might have been left in bed following a decline – and instantly improve their comfort levels.
You can see the change in the individual, they are sometimes more alert when being sat up.”
Patient satisfaction is job satisfaction
The equipment we can provide through our rental service makes a big difference to the individual and the carers, as well as their family. “Carers can spend a lot of their day trying to support and readjust the individual.
Having a supportive chair helps the family so much, they don’t have to be worried, and it gives all parties more freedom.
From a physical perspective, clients can also develop pressure sores if not seated in the right way – this can be painful and take a long time to heal, as well as taking up more time in terms of personal care.
The carers I have spoken to would much rather spend their time helping their client in other ways!”
On the service, a recent client commented “We have purchased and rented a chair from Premiere Healthcare where Owain Randell dealt with the queries and purchase. Very efficient and informative and helpful information received. The price was also affordable.”
From initial outreach to receiving your rental
It couldn’t be easier to hire the perfect seating solution for your clients or loved ones in the short or longer term. After an individual, care giver or family member reaches out to us, we take care of the rest.
Renting a specialist chair
First, we arrange a virtual or in-person assessment for specialist chair, depending on the client’s preference.
During this assessment, our expert team will be able to detail your options including rental or purchase, how long either option will take, and if there is a need to do so, they are sometimes able to leave the assessment chair.
Following the assessment, you will receive a quotation from our team (exempt of VAT for those with mobility issues).
Once you have decided to go ahead with your purchase or rental, the equipment will be inspected to make sure it is in good working order, and in cases of rentals, the seating will be delivered within 48 hours.
Our expert team are on hand at any time to answer your queries throughout the process.
Flexible post-rental options
After the rental period, it is completely optional to extend this dependent on the needs of the individual. Once the chair is no longer needed, we will collect this from the home at no extra cost.
