The staff at a Selkirk House care home have been praised for their exceptional quality dementia care.

Staff had organised a special party for residents and guests to celebrate the home’s new Anchor Inspires accreditation, which recognises its outstanding specialist dementia care.

Selkirk House 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. 

Selkirk House Home Manager Michelle Amesbury said: “It was wonderful to have such a lovely party here to celebrate this achievement.

“Musical entertainment was provided by local entertainer Al McBrian who got residents toe tapping and dancing to 60s & 70’s music.”

“I am very proud of the team here and all their hard work - becoming an Anchor Inspires accredited home demonstrates our dedication to helping people living with dementia to get the most out of life.”

Maria Bamford, Regional Operations Director at Anchor, 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 Selkirk House have embedded this into every element of their residents’ lives.”
