Chegworth Nursing Home in Sutton has been named Care Home of the Year 2019 by the National Gold Standards Framework Centre for End of Life Care (GSF).
The home was described by the judging panel as “inspirational” in recognition of the “deeply impressive, systematic, individual, and movingly compassionate care it provides all its residents”.
Rekha Govindan, manager of the 43-bed nursing home, said: “From the moment someone walks through our door we want them to live well until they die. And from the very first day we will work to collaborate with them and their relatives so that we can help them achieve their goals. Winning the GSF Care Home of the Year award is a fantastic reward for all of the staff who have been working so hard to do that for almost 15 years.”
Only care homes that have demonstrated their long-term commitment to embedding quality end of life care are considered by the judges. All the shortlisted homes completed the GSF Care Homes training programme and have been accredited and then reaccredited at least once. Chegworth Nursing Home has been reaccredited three times demonstrating its long-term commitment to quality care as well as the sustainability of GSF.
