Ebury Court Care Home is extremely proud to have won the following awards and continue to strive to achieve excellence in all that we do on a daily basis.
We are delighted to announce that we won the Skills for Care ‘Best Employer of Under 50 staff’ award. Skills for Care is the strategic body for workforce development in adult social care in England and is almost entirely funded by the Department of Health. It is an independent registered charity working with 35,000 adult social care employers to set the standards and qualifications to equip social care workers with the skills and knowledge needed to deliver high quality care to people who use services and carers. This national award is very prestigious and we were thrilled and honoured to receive it.
Ebury Court are proud to hold the Gold Standard Framework in Care Homes Quality Hallmark Award for End of Life Care. This national award was first achieved at the highest level, Beacon in 2011. We were reaccredited again at Beacon level in 2014 and then in 2017, we attained Platinum achieving 20 out of the 20 standards in recognition of sustaining the highest level of end of life care. Visit the Gold Standard Framework website for more details.
The Gold Standard Framework training focussed on all aspects of providing palliative care and involved the entire staff at Ebury Court. It included how to work collaboratively with our GP and nursing services, symptom control, anticipatory prescribing, care in the final days, dignity, dementia, spirituality and how to support both the relatives and the resident.
Our staff are very knowledgeable, experienced and highly committed to providing a ‘gold standard of end of life care’.
We value our staff highly and place great importance on staff training, support and supervision. We achieved the Investors in People award in 1999 and were one of the first care homes to have received this and continue to meet the criteria to hold this award. Investors in People is a national award given to organisations which meet the Standards required for training and developing their staff. It is an assessed process and it is re-assessed every three.
