Care home trio awarded accreditation for person-centred care
Meaningful Care Matters has awarded accreditation to a trio of care homes in England following the successful implementation of its person-centred care models.
Surrey’s Huntington House and Langham Court, which make up the Huntington & Langham Estate, received recognition for establishing ‘The Dragonfly Approach’ and ’The Butterfly Approach’ respectively, while Cornwall’s Beaumont Court received accreditation for fostering The Butterfly Approach.
The Huntington & Langham Estate, near Haslemere, combines two specialist family-run care homes offering high-quality residential, nursing, respite, day care, and dementia care amid 30 acres of gardens and woodland.
Beaumont Court, a dementia care home near Launceston, was described by Meaningful Care Matters as having an outstanding service with a model of care that provides a meaningful engagement experience.
The Butterfly Approach focuses on creating a person-centred care culture where people are ‘free to be me’.
The model values emotional intelligence, domestic household living, and the core belief that everyone living with a dementia has a unique story that has meaning and matters.
Similar to the Butterfly model, The Dragonfly Approach is for all care cultures, not just dementia-specific. The model focuses on palliative care and hospice services, mental health, learning disability, and generalist health and social care settings.
“These accreditations highlight the outstanding work being done to transform the cultures of social care settings,” said Meaningful Care Matters managing director Peter Bewert.
“Ultimately, we want to create places where overall wellbeing is increased, staff practice is reinvigorated, and safeguarding, mandatory reporting, and staff turnover is reduced. It’s coming back to the art and heart of care, where people, and moments, matter,” he added.
