Townfield Mobility Shop Launch

Our Brand-New store, Townfield Care Mobility, has opened in Great Harwood. With products ranging from mobility scooters to easy can openers, to help people have the best quality of life possible.

Run by brothers, Michael and John Timmins, Townfield Care is a family-owned company that has been providing residential and at-home care services in the Hyndburn area for over 35 years. Our focus has always been, and will always be, providing personalised care and improving quality of life.

We plan to use our expertise and experience to open our first ever mobility and daily living aid store at 79 Church Street in Great Harwood, to further improve the quality of peoples’ lives; particularly those who live independently at home, and those who receive in-home care.

John Timmins, director of Townfield Care, commented: “We want people to feel comfortable in approaching us to ask for advice about what aids may help them, or to purchase something we supply. We can reassure the public that we have a wealth of experience in at-home and residential care, meaning that we know what aids are needed to improve day-to-day life.”

Townfield Care doesn’t just offer competitive prices for their products, an at-home service and decades of knowledge, but they also provide support and guidance to the people who visit their shop or use the services – ensuring they receive individualised and person centred care. All of this signifies that they are in a very ideal position to help anyone in the community who would benefit from aid for independent living.

While focus lies with mobility scooters, the shop sells a vast range of innovative products, from shoe removers to easy-pour Tipper Kettles, and from absorbent chair pads to travel chairs. Such products make living day-to-day life easier through making tasks, from the most simple to the most difficult, more accessible; in turn, allowing individuals to live more independently and therefore improving quality of life.

Michael and John offer a home survey service, for which they will come direct to your home and “make recommendations of any products or adjustments” completely free of charge. As well as this, they offer free delivery of any items purchased from the shop.

John said: “We want people to enjoy life.”

Townfield Brings Blackpool to Harwood

Care home residents feel at home beside the seaside – in Great Harwood!

Residents of Townfield & Coach House are enjoying seaside trips down memory lane now that their lounge has been decorated with Blackpool seafront mural wallpaper.

The large-scale image of a sunny summer’s day in Blackpool occupies a full wall in a lounge at Townfield & Coach House in Church Street.

As a specialist care home for people with dementia, Townfield & Coach House owners, brothers John and Michael Timmins, are abreast of latest research into helping dementia sufferers live well with their condition.

John Timmins said:

“We are always improving the living environment at our care homes. Our plan is to take guidance from the research of University of Stirling to design the home in a more dementia friendly way. By using colour-coded décor and furnishings, we can help our residents to distinguish between different areas and to feel at home in spaces they use regularly.

“We spotted a tweet from Scott Dawson Advertising in Burnley about full scale image wallpaper they’d produced for their very own Jesse McClure room at their Burnley HQ. I thought they could help us to create a completely different feel within our upstairs lounge so gave Murray a call.

“We chose a Blackpool seafront image for our wallpaper as many of our residents are of the generation that visited the seaside resort on their annual holidays .

“The reaction to our ‘Blackpool wall’ has been fantastic; already we’re finding the wallpaper is a great talking point. It’s helping our staff to really engage residents in sharing their memories of visiting Blackpool. There’s lots going on in the picture – from families playing together and donkeys on the beach, to the pier and the iconic Blackpool Tower – which helps it to also work as a calming distraction tool our staff can use if any residents become agitated.”

The lounge which was recently re designed to incorporate dementia friendly design

Scott Dawson Advertising, a full-service marketing agency based in Burnley, designed, printed and installed the Blackpool seafront wallpaper earlier this month.

Their Managing Director Murray Dawson said:

“Our large scale wallpaper graphics are a simple and cost-effective way to add a focal point to a room. They have a big visual impact in office reception points and meeting rooms but also, as Townfield’s story shows, can have a much more profound effect on people. I’m pleased with how the ‘Blackpool lounge’ looks and that it’s making a difference to these residents’ lives.”

Townfield Care is run by brothers Michael and John Timmins. It operates Townfield & Coach House, a specialist dementia care home in Great Harwood, Sherwood House, a small residential home for the elderly in Rishton, and an expanding home care service throughout Hyndburn, Ribble Valley and Rossendale.

Michael Timmins, Managing Director of Townfield Care said ” We have created the garden display earlier this year and thought that a dedication to the Armed forces and the British legion would be very fitting at this time of year.
