Ripped and damaged vinyl and carpet were not safe flooring surfaces for the residents and staff at View Point Health, a group home in Covington, Georgia, that specializes in the care of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Beauflor USA’s Commercial Controller Keeli Padgett, whose late aunt previously lived at the group home, knew that Beauflor could help. After receiving pictures from her father that showed the damaged flooring, she presented an idea to replace it to Beauflor’s senior leadership team who agreed to donate 3,200 square feet of sheet vinyl—and cover all installation expenses.
“It is important that we give back to our community,” said George Frederick, managing director, Beauflor USA. “We support many local initiatives without having any personal connections but this one was presented to us by an employee that was so passionate about the organization. After learning about the group home and how the new flooring would benefit so many people, we were compelled to get this done.”
When selecting the flooring for the installation, Beauflor chose its Xtreme sheet vinyl flooring because of its commercial-grade durability, slip resistance, and cleanliness. The flooring performs well in areas subject to daily wheelchair traffic and is easy to clean and maintain. In addition, Xtreme is waterproof so it can be installed throughout the home to create a visually appealing aesthetic and seamless flow from room to room.
“The group home helps the residents live as normal lives as possible despite their disability, which not only empowers them but the community as a whole,” said Darlene Washington, clerical assistant, View Point Health. “The new floor will improve the quality of life for the residents and will make it easier for the staff to keep clean which will improve the health of the residents.”
