Hansgrohe SE is committed

to a Palliative Care Centre in Villingen-Schwenningen

The Palliative Care Centre in Villingen-Schwenningen was recently opened. Here, in a special ward at the Schwarzwald-Baar Hospital, all attention is devoted to the well-being of critically ill patients. The nursing staff are completely focused on taking care of their charges. The aim is to alleviate their pain and improve their quality of life wherever possible. It was with precisely this aim that Hansgrohe SE furnished the bathrooms on the ward, which is situated around 35 km from the company headquarters in Schiltach. The mixer and shower manufacturer donated an entire range of basin mixers and shower solutions which are ideal for providing care for seriously ill patients.

Intuitive products which offer support

The bathroom is such an intimate place, and everyone wants to be able to use it independently for as long as possible. Whether at home or in a hospital. The patients in Villingen-Schwenningen can now enjoy more independence, convenience and functionality thanks to Hansgrohe Focus basin mixers. These feature an extra-long handle and are easy to operate from a wheelchair. A special shower solution offers patients support in the literal sense: here, an extended wall bar becomes a horizontal grab handle. The thermostatic shower mixer features Hansgrohe Select. This technology enables the patient to turn the water on and off using a highly visible, clearly marked button. The removable, height-adjustable Hansgrohe Croma Select S hand shower is ergonomic and easy to grip. Jet types are changed at the touch of a button, via the integrated Select button. This enables the patient – or the nurse – to choose normal shower spray or powerful massage spray with very little physical effort.

Palliative care – a cloak of protection for the sick

“The Centre truly means a lot to the Friends of Palliative Care Association, which made this project possible in the first place thanks to its extremely hard work over the last six years”, said Richard Grohe, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board at Hansgrohe SE. We really wanted to make our own contribution to improving the quality of life for these seriously ill patients. The bathrooms at the Palliative Care Centre are positive proof that solutions that actually work for people with physical disabilities can look good as well. Here, we created an attractive combination of function and aesthetics. This also helps to improve quality of life. This setting offers the patient more than just a bed, it offers a cloak of protection – as the word 'palliative' suggests.”

A further advantage offered by the mixers and showers: they are equipped with Hansgrohe EcoSmart, a technology which reduces water consumption by up to 60 percent. These trendsetting features of the Palliative Care Centre help to promote more efficient use of water and energy. This also enables the establishment to be run cost-effectively.
