Accredited Care Homes
To qualify for accreditation, care homes must have undertaken the full GSFCH training programme over 9 months, embedded this into their homes for at least 6 months and then undertaken a rigorous accreditation process 'Going for Gold’.
The accreditation process includes:
- Assessment against 20 clear standards of best practice
- Reviewing the care of residents using the After Death Analysis Audit Tool
- Quality Assessment Visit – reviewing the integration of the processes into everyday practice.
To achieve accreditation a home must achieve at least 84% of the standards, which includes 4 vital standards.
To attain commend status a home must show innovative and established good practice in at least six of the 20 standards.
To be recognised as a beacon, a home must show innovative and established good practice across at least 12 of the standards.
