New Partnership with ADS Independent Living Solutions
Tough Furniture are pleased to announce a new partnership with ADS Independent Living Solutions on their highly innovative Smile Homes®.
ADS Independent Living Solutions is a social enterprise delivering a different kind of housing solution for individuals living independently with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and mental health and behavioural challenges.
David Adams, Chief Executive of ADS said:-
“Our intelligent Smile Homes® system is a transformational change in the delivery of personalised homes for independent living for people with different abilities and complex needs.
We are delighted to have completed this milestone with our first Smile Homes® installation at Portland College. We are looking forward to using this platform to drive innovation and delivery to enable people to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives in a home of their own, in a community of their choosing, which meets their needs and wishes.”
Each fully bespoke and mindfully-designed Smile Home® comes with a flexible and intelligent technology infrastructure built to assist with day-to-day tasks and aid independence, making each home adaptable to the personalised needs and wishes of each resident.
As well as offering cutting edge health care and wellbeing provision, Smile Homes® are built to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. They are constructed off-site and delivered volumetrically to minimise works on site, and feature solar panels, green roofing and a high degree of recyclability in components and overall structure.
After a thorough review of the market, ADS Independent Living Solutions have selected Tough Furniture as their preferred furniture supplier based on our unique status as specialist designers and manufacturers in the field of challenging environments furniture. This means that all Smile Homes® can come kitted out with our premium quality, robust and reliable products – already tried and tested in the environments Smile Homes® are built for.
“We are extremely proud to be part of this genuine innovation in challenging environments care provision. As specialists in challenging environments for over 30 years, we have seen a lot of variation in the standards and quality of provision for mental health and learning disabilities – and in our view Smile Homes® have the potential to really set a new benchmark for quality.”
