A CHESTERFIELD care home has been awarded the Derbyshire Dignity Campaign Award for the second time.
Springbank House Care Home, on Ashgate Road, “more than deserves to achieve the award” according to assessors from Derbyshire County Council.
“This application shows person-centred care with dignity and respect in all areas of the home,” read the assessment feedback.
“Well done to the manager and her team for this application. Well done and keep up the good work.”
Karen Busby, home manager at Springbank House Care Home, said: “The team work so hard at driving and promoting dignity throughout all areas of the home that they really do deserve this award. Well done to all staff.
“Getting this award is all about being dignity champions and following the correct procedures and protocols for residents residing in our home.
“This includes giving choices, being person centred, allowing privacy, making sure the home is safe, documentation, residents and relatives meetings.
“It’s also about letting the residents choose how they would like things, for instance choosing the colours for the dining room, café and lounge when they were recently redecorated.”
The Derbyshire Dignity Campaign, which is run in conjunction between the County Council and NHS Derbyshire, aims for every social care and health service team, establishment and provider to be giving a consistent experience of dignity and respect for service users.
