Awards & Recommendations

Cholwell House Nursing Home

Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes

Cholwell House was re-accredited with Beacon status on the 26th September 2014 by the Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes, recognising the high quality of care provided for people in the final years of life.

Additionally the home was a finalist for the GSF Care Home of the Year Award 2014 recognition of the excellent end of life care provided to the residents and subsequently was shortlisted for the Employer Award by the South West Care Awards 2014.

Since 2004, The GSF Centre have trained over 2500 residential and nursing homes with the GSF Quality Improvement Programme in Care Homes and many hundreds have gone on to become Accredited, including Cholwell House.  Over the past decade strong evidence has been developed demonstrating that the use of GSF can improve the quality of care for residents, increase the confidence of staff and halve the rate of hospital admissions and deaths.  Our goal is to sustain best practice allowing people to live and die well in a place of their choosing.

Bath & North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, in association with ITN Productions, will be filming at Cholwell House at the end of October to create a short video which will be shown at a major NHS conference in December. This will highlight how Cholwell and its primary general practitioner are eliminating inappropriate hospital admission and enhancing medical care within the home.

 

Butterfly Service

Care Award

Cholwell House has participated in a national dementia care Quality of Life kitemark and been  designated a ‘Butterfly Service’, recognised for the provision of quality dementia care through a focus on the individuals living there.

Creating a family like atmosphere and sharing closeness matters in dementia care; staff are like butterflies, drawing on a variety of skilled ways in which to engage and with the residents and step into their reality.

Compassion is key to our care where the individual is celebrated, staff connect with the residents and there is meaningful occupation enhancing optimal well-being.
