JLA says care homes need critical equipment certainty

JLA, the critical equipment and servicing partner in catering, laundry, fire safety, heating and infection control, is ready to support care homes as they emerge from the pandemic.

The last 16 months have had a huge impact on the industry and JLA said it is fundamental that care homes have the certainty they need when it comes to all critical equipment.

The biggest challenges currently being faced by care homes (according to recent research by JLA) are managing cashflow (59%), adhering to new COVID safety guidelines (53%) and attracting new residents (35%).

In addition to managing new rules and guidelines, staff also need to be certain that laundry and catering equipment, as well as boilers and air conditioning, are fit for purpose and won’t let them down when they are needed most.

In the event of a CQC audit, if a laundry is not up to standard it can affect the rating.

For around 50 years JLA has been a trusted partner to thousands of care homes across the UK.  Its Total Care plan is a prime example of that, especially when budgets are tight. Total Care offers the vital equipment needed combined with breakdown coverage for a single monthly payment and no capital outlay.
