One of the best ways to lighten the load is to "share the care" and involve the whole family.

WHERE TO KEEP THE LINEN:
There are 2 bag carriers where we keep the bed sheets and towels until the day they're washed
and a trolley with the bed sheets.
You can see another trolley with the towelsSome shelves for stock or for storing linen that is not being used like duvets in summer or beach towels in winter
WHERE TO WASH CLOTHES
A room with a sink, a washing machine and 2 hampers to collect dirty clothes
Iron and ironing board
2 shelf racks to lay out clothes to dry
1 coat rail to hang the ironed garments
And this trolley. DONE!

This is the main entrance. Now I will show you the big machinery
The biggest one is the flatwork. We iron thousands of bed sheets every day. It has a feeder machine that helps us with the bed sheets.
It has a folding machine. (I don't know if you can see clearly how it works).
A piling machine that finishes the work.
I bet you haven't seen this machine before. It is a tunnel. There is a person that hangs the garments on a hanger and the rest of the work is done by the machine.
The dryer helps us unload the linen
This machine helps us fold and sort the towels
This is where we iron the doctors' coats.
It may look like a factory but we know that small details like a table cloth and servilletes on the food tray and well-ironed pyjamas can help our patients feel at home.
