The prestigious Beacon Award with the Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes (GSFCH) places Cranmer Court in a select group of just 66 care homes in the United Kingdom to be recognised for delivering the highest standards of care for people in the final years of life.
In addition to Palliative Care, the home specialises in many aspects of elderly nursing care including helping those with Parkinson’s, as well as residential care for the elderly frail.
The Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes (GSFCH) aims to improve the organisation and quality of care for residents in the last years of life, to improve collaboration across boundaries and to reduce avoidable hospital admissions. To qualify for accreditation, care homes must have undertaken the full GSFCH Training programme over 9 months, embedded this into their homes for at least 6 months and then undertaken a rigorous accreditation process ‘Going for Gold’. The Accreditation Award is endorsed by the English Community Care Association, Registered Nursing Home Association, National Care Association, and National Care Forum.
Cranmer Court Manager, Norah Davey said:
‘I am thrilled that the hard work put in by our dedicated team has been recognised through this award. Our residents and their wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do here at Cranmer Court.
‘We are passionate about ensuring that the highest standards of specialist care are in place and we work hard to sustain those standards, so to receive this award is absolutely fantastic.’
