Staff, volunteers and residents at Stonehill House care home in Churchway are celebrating the receipt of a top award — the Abbeyfield Gold Star. The home provides care for eleven elderly residents and is a member of the national Abbeyfield Society — a charity providing a wide range of care across the UK and abroad.
Regular inspections by the Care Quality Commission ensure that it meets the highest standards of care, and a recent inspection by an Abbeyfield assessor confirmed that the home met all the criteria required by the Abbeyfield Society.
This is especially good news for the group of volunteers who make up the management committee. Chairman Margaret Aston commented "We are delighted that the work of all our staff and volunteers has been recognised with this award. We have an excellent staff team who are committed to providing the best possible care for all our residents, and we are fortunate to have a committee with a wide range of skills to manage the house".
The home, which has been established for 27 years, is no stranger to award winning. As well as celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2010 House Manager, Lindsey McGibbon, won the Care Home Manager's award for the South East region and management committee Chairman, Margaret Aston was presented with the Abbeyfield Royal Patron's award; both of them have been at the home since it opened.
