Broadview Residential Care Home, in the village of Welwyn, provides dedicated care for six clients with learning difficulties. Their new Peugeot Monarch minibus, supplied by Allied Vehicles, is specially adapted to enable up to three passengers to travel in their wheelchairs.
Features include tracked flooring and a rear ramp to enable three of Broadview’s residents to travel in their wheelchairs.
Broadwood is one of two residential facilities operated by Candour Care Services. An independent organisation, Candour specialise in provision for special needs clients including people with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders.
Rosario Fernandes from Candour Care commented: “We found out about Allied Vehicles on the internet and were impressed with their range of minibuses. The Monarch looked particularly good and we discovered it was ideal for our needs.”
Rosario continued: “It’s so much better than the vehicle we had before as there’s lots of space, it’s easy to manage and is very comfortable. We needed space for three wheelchair users so this is ideal.”
Broadview staff are now able to get residents out and about much more easily to visit the local day centre, go shopping or attend medical appointments. Soon the residents and carers at Broadview will be going to Butlins in Skegness in their new minibus and are looking forward to their trip.
“The service we received from Allied Vehicles was excellent. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wheelchair accessible minibus,” added Rosario.
The Peugeot Monarch is available in many configurations, with 7-17 seats and can carry up to three wheelchair passengers. The vehicle is fully equipped with Unwin Innotrax flooring, providing maximum flexibility and safety when positioning and securing wheelchair passengers.
To assist wheelchair entry and exit a lowering air suspension system, electric winch and ramp or passenger lift are all available. A team of nationwide Technical Advisers is ready to demonstrate the Peugeot Monarch to care homes and other organisations throughout the UK.
Other minibuses available from Allied Vehicles include models from Renault, Fiat, Ford,Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Citroen and Iveco.
