Derbyshire Dignity Award won by Chesterfield home


Holmeswood-Dignity-AwardHOLMEWOOD Care Home has been awarded The Derbyshire Dignity Award for services provided to residents and their families.

The Chesterfield home has 40 beds and provides tailored residential and day care to meet residents’ individual needs.

The award, issued by Derbyshire County Council, recognises Holmewood’s person centered care and their dignity protection processes and procedures for residents living with dementia.

It also recognises the home’s involvement of families with care planning for their loved ones, giving the residents a voice, as well as activities and events and end of life care.

Kathleen Richardson, manager at Holmewood Care Home, said: “Following a compliance assessment process by Derbyshire County Council, we are delighted to receive The Derbyshire Dignity Award for the care we provide.

“We support our residents in every possible way, with our carers prioritising their physical and emotional wellbeing right from the beginning and throughout their time with us.”

The Derbyshire Dignity Campaign provides awards based on a 10-point dignity challenge.

Chris Whittaker, Coordinator of the Dignity and Respect Campaign for Derbyshire, said: “Congratulations to Holmewood Care Home on achieving their award. They deliver person centred care to all individuals, treating them with value, dignity, respect and care.

“It is so heart-warming to find a care home that not only displays these qualities but ensures they are carried out on a day to day basis.”

Derbyshire County Council will be holding workshops to encourage all care homes in the region to sign up to the Derbyshire Dignity Award.
