Morris Care Nursing Homes Awarded National Gold Standard
Our Oldbury Grange and Isle Court care homes have both achieved a nationally recognised gold award for the high quality of their care for people in the last years of their life.
Both homes passed the Gold Standards Framework Care Homes Accreditation Quality Hallmark after a rigorous independent review of all aspects of their care.
They are two of only a select few in Shropshire to hold the coveted hallmark.
Nurse manager of Oldbury Grange Susan Barton, said: “We have always aimed for excellence to provide the highest possible standards in nursing and compassionate care. Achieving this award is fantastic news and important recognition for what we do."
At Oldbury Grange, an 82-strong team is based at the home, which has 63 bedrooms and offers short and long term care for the elderly and mentally frail. It also provides care for those living with all forms of dementia.
A 98-strong team is based at Isle Court which has 54 bedrooms and offers palliative care, convalescent care, long and short-term respite care and day care. Specialist support is also available for those living with dementia and with disabilities.
The GSFCH Quality Hallmark Award was formally presented to both of the homes at a special awards ceremony in London. To be accredited, homes must achieve 20 quality standards, ranging from leadership and support to dignity and respect as well as submit a portfolio of evidence.
The accreditation process considers better quality of care, proactive and advanced care planning, working with GPs and staff morale. Its inspectors look for gold standard thinking that runs through the whole home.Back to news
