Sarah Mason 27th Aug, 2019

DEMENTIA care at a Solihull home which cares for former soldiers has been branded “exceptional”.

The Royal Star and Garter Homes Solihull has held on to its level 1 accreditation by Dementia Care Matters, following a recent unannounced visit earlier this month.

The Monkspath Hall Road home is one of the one per cent of care homes in the country to have attained this level of accreditation.

Cheryl Harbourne, home manager, said: “I am so incredibly proud of the team in the Solihull Home.

“This consistent achievement is indicative of the hard work and passion within the team, and I am delighted it has been recognised once again in the form of the Level 1 award.”

Level 1 is the highest accolade achievable through Dementia Care Matters’ National ‘Butterfly Household Model of Care Accreditation Award’.

The level 1 is awarded to homes that demonstrate ‘exceptional person-centred dementia care of the highest quality of life level’.

Pauline Shaw, Royal Star and Garter’s director of care, said: “I’m delighted with this news. It is just reward for the Solihull team, and I’m so happy their hard work and dedication has been recognised again. To maintain a Level 1 is exceptional.”
