Malden House receives recognition for outstanding end-of-life care
Malden House is the latest of our homes to be recognised with a national Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Quality Hallmark Award for its delivery of end-of-life care.
The Award was given to Malden House as part of the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Virtual Awards, which recognises health and social care providers delivering quality care in the final year of life.
Malden House in Sidmouth, Devon, is one of 75 care homes, primary care, domiciliary care agency and hospitals which received the prestigious GSF quality hallmark across the country. The Gold Standards Framework Centre provides expert training for frontline staff in health and social care, to enable a ‘gold standard’ of care for people nearing the end of life.
Tabitha Donovan, Manager of Malden House, says: “I am so pleased for my team and my care home, we want to share the news with everyone. We are delighted to continue providing exemplary service through our investment in end-of-life care. The comfort and care of our residents is so important to us; that they can pass away with dignity, respect and without pain according to their wishes is critical to us.”
Julie Armstrong-Wilson, Lead Nurse for GSF says: “The last two years have posed some incredible challenges to the health and social care workforce, so we are very proud of all of our successful applicants that took the time to submit their portfolios of evidence.
“The GSF team are so very proud of all our Award Winners, as there has never been a more important time to ensure we deliver quality end of life care, well done to you all!”
