Middleton Hall care home, part of the Bondcare group, has received a Dignity Challenge Award from Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council.
The award, which is part of a scheme to reward quality services across elderly care facilities in the Rochdale area, has been running since last year. The certificate was presented by Ryan Staniland, Contracts Manager for the Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council Commissioning team.
The home, on Grimshaw Lane in Middleton, was put forward for the Dignity Challenge award after Rochdale City Council initially reviewed its facilities and passed its services as contractually compliant. A glowing report was issued from Age Concern UK after the charity visited the home’s premises.
The initial assessment from the council covered several areas of care at the home including, personalised care, medication distribution, training, activities, treatment and support, and suitability of staffing.
Wendy Baggott, Manager at Middleton Hall care home said: “Being presented with this award is fantastic, it’s great to be officially recognised for our dedication towards providing the highest quality service for our residents.
“We work very closely with Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council to make sure that our services are fulfilling every regulation to the highest standard. Maintaining dignity in elderly care is vital. Middleton Hall aims to ensure residents are treated as individuals, given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives and are provided with stimulating activities.”
Ryan Staniland, Contracts Manager for the Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council Commissioning team, said: “It is very important to recognise services which offer good quality care and facilities. The Dignity Challenge Award highlights work carried out by people who work in elderly care and the quality of the service they provide.
“Age Concern UK gave a positive review of Middleton Hall care home, which they should be very proud of.“
