StudyBed helps care wardens sleep and work in comfort

In specialist care homes looking after maybe four or five people with special needs, it is important the residential warden is comfortable.

Often they are squeezed into a small room, typically close to the entrance, where they sleep at night and run their office during the day.

This dual-purpose room tends to lead to two things, lack of space to keep the office properly tidy and organised, and a compromised quality of sleep. To have a bed on show in the office for visitors to see, and possibly sit on, is not a comfortable scenario.

However, there is an answer to the problem of using the same room for both a bedroom and an office.

StudyBed is a combination large desk and a normal bed (any size from 3ft to a full double) that takes seconds to flip from one mode to the other. The user can even leave everything in place on the desk, and likewise all the bedding.

In addition to the large desk, the StudyBed also supports a massive amount of storage for files, all within the same compact footprint of around one metre in desk mode. It is the perfect multi-functional product for a dual purpose room.

The StudyBed Company’s managing director Ben Berry said more than 10,000 have already been sold.

“This is proving to be a very popular solution for specialist care homes that need to create a comfortable, efficient and dignified office/bedroom for staff.”
