Training & Accreditations

We are committed to developing our staff, whilst provide a high-quality environment for our residents.


 

CQC

Each of our homes are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). All are rated as ‘Good’.

On-going training

Every member of staff undertakes an on-going programme of training on an annual basis, covering all areas of health and safety, care support and understanding of our residents needs.

We work closely with a training partner to ensure this training is undertaken either online, in person, or through a practical session, as appropriate to the course content.


 

Health & Social Care Diploma

All of our care staff undertake the Health & Social Care Diploma, and we encourage all to continue through the different levels of qualification to further their development.


 

Gold Standard Framework

Each of our Homes are currently undertaking the Gold Standard Framework accreditation. The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is an evidence based systematic approach to formalising best practice through improving the organisation and coordination of care for all people with any condition in any setting in the final year or so of life.

The aims of GSF are to:

  • Improve the quality of care for all people nearing the end of life – in line with their preferences
  • Improve the coordination and collaboration of teams supporting them
  • Improve outcomes for people enabling more to live and die where they choose, reduced hospitalisation and improved cost effectiveness

 

Dementia Care

Our homes work closely with local and national dementia charities and follow their dementia friendly accreditation programmes.
