Apollo helps River View Care Centre to improve the quality of life for a new resident

A member of the Apollo team recently visited the River View Care Centre in Dartmouth, which provides personalised nursing and residential care for older people with dementia, physical disabilities, as well as end of life care.

River View required a Tilt in Space chair to accommodate Mr B, a patient at another regional nursing home some distance away. With Mr B’s family home in Dartmouth a move to River View would greatly improve his quality of life.


A demonstration of the Apollo Deluxe chair impressed with its functionality. A further review with an Occupational Therapist confirmed that the Deluxe would suit Mr B’s needs very well.

The Deluxe chair has a number of features to aid Mr B, including Tilt in Space, which allows Occupational Therapists to provide a range of specialist care. In addition the Apollo pressure case system would address his pressure sores whilst providing a comfortable seating solution.


The Deluxe chair enabled Mr B to be admitted to River View, a great relief for his family. The full pressure care system of the chair allows all day comfort, and for Mr B to be out of bed interacting with others. Importantly, his pressure sores are now healing due to the chair’s pressure relief properties.

The River View Manager commented “I am delighted with the Deluxe chair from Apollo, it has made a huge difference to Mr B who is enjoying joining other members of our Centre throughout the day.”
