A local Rosebank care home is celebrating following the news that it has successfully achieved accreditation for the Gold Standards Framework.
The prestigious Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes (GSFCH) award places Rosebank in a select group of care homes in the United Kingdom, and one of only three in Oxfordshire, to be recognised for delivering the highest standards of care for people in the final years of life.
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 nine months, embedded this into their homes for at least six 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 the National Care Forum.
Rosebank Manager, Lynn Hughes 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 Rosebank.
“We are passionate about ensuring that the highest standards of care are in place and we work hard to sustain those standards, so to receive this award is absolutely fantastic.”
Situated at the heart of Bampton, Rosebank is a traditional Cotswold-style home providing residential care for up to 28 elderly people.
