Manor Court care home in Plymouth has been awarded a new dementia care accreditation, in recognition of its person-centred approach and exceptional quality care.
Manor Court is one of several care homes in the country to have achieved Anchor Inspires accreditation, after passing a rigorous assessment.
The accreditation has been developed by dementia experts at Anchor, England’s leading not-for-profit housing and care provider, and is awarded to care homes which deliver the highest standards of dementia care.
Manor Court Manager Rachel McGarry said: “I am very proud of the achievements of the team here at Manor Court.
“Becoming an Anchor Inspires accredited home demonstrates our dedication to providing outstanding specialist care and our passion for helping people living with dementia to get the most out of life.
“We work with every resident to find out about their personality, past and interests, so that we can create a safe and happy environment for that person.
“A commitment to continued learning and development is something we value highly in Anchor, and I am delighted to see my team here embracing that.”
Anchor Inspires uses 55 indicators to assess performance in four key areas: Memories; Safe living; Activities and Companionship.
The standards of dementia care delivered by Anchor Inspires accredited care homes will also be reviewed as part of the Care Quality Commission (CQC)’s regulated framework. The CQC is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England.
Rachel said: “Person-centred care is all about valuing the individual - the Anchor Inspires accreditation emphasises that one size does not fit all, and the team at Manor Court have embedded this into every element of residents’ lives.”
