Specially tailored bus for Arbroath care home

AN ARBROATH care home was last week presented with a brand new minibus.

The HC-One Lunan Court Care Home received one of 200 brand new specially modified mobility minibuses being rolled out to HC-One homes nationally.

It comes just weeks after HC-One managing director Pam Finnis appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Undercover Boss’.

Pam said: “The arrival of the HC-One minibus fleet is a milestone for the company. HC-One’s aim is to provide the kindest care in the country and enabling residents to enjoy life in the community around the home is fundamental to achieving this aim. It was a lengthy selection process in choosing the minibuses, and we looked at a number of different manufacturers and models.

“The minibuses have been specially converted to become wheelchair accessible, with a new floor fitted to each for seat belt fixings, along with a tail lift, side step, blue internal lights for night travel, a skylight hatch and heating. As we roll out the minibuses to HC-One homes across the UK, residents will enjoy more exciting outings and lead a fuller life.”
