Brunelcare’s Glastonbury Care Home has been recognised with a national award for the second time.
The service has won the Quality Hallmark Award from the National Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Centre, the UK’s largest provider of training in end of life care.
Home Manager Joanna Crago said: “I am absolutely delighted that the ongoing hard work and dedication of my team at Brunelcare, Glastonbury, has been recognised at the highest level by the Gold Standard Framework.
“The award recognises our commitment of working together to provide the highest standard of care possible for patients and their families. Receiving this nationally accredited award sends out a positive message that our team here at Brunelcare, Glastonbury are well trained and equipped to deliver, in a sensitive way, our residents’ end of life wishes.”
GSF Quality Hallmark Awards are presented to homes that demonstrate real improvement in the quality of care they provide. Many halve the number of their residents dying in hospital as well as halving crisis hospital admissions, leading to greater satisfaction for families, residents and staff and significant cost savings for the NHS.
Kevin Fairman, Brunelcare’s CEO, said: “I am delighted for Joanna and the team at our Glastonbury nursing care home to have been recognised by GSF with this Platinum award. Providing good end of life care is something that Brunelcare aims to provide across all its services and I’m very proud of our employees for the care and support that they provide on a daily basis.”
