Askham Hall achieves Gold Standards Framework accreditation

Askham Hall, part of Askham Village Community, has received ‘Gold Standards Framework’ accreditation for its end-of-life care provision.

The provider was recognised by the National Gold Standards Framework (GSF) scheme thanks to its continued commitment to maintaining the dignity and comfort of its residents, having consistently provided a comfortable and peaceful environment for residents while preserving their dignity and offering the very best in personalised care.

According to the GSF, Askham Hall’s services consistently aligned with its aim of improving the quality of care for people nearing the end of life. The home also received specialist training delivered through interactive workshops, distance learning using the GSF Virtual Learning Zone, and through customised training materials.

Joanne Monaghan, registered manager at Askham Hall, said: “I am truly humbled to work amongst such a hard-working dedicated team, this achievement is well deserved and serves as the recognition that the care delivered at Askham Hall is nothing short of excellent. As a team, we all feel immensely privileged to be a part of our resident’s journey. Ensuring their care is person-centred and delivered in the way that they choose is one of the most rewarding things we can achieve.”

Askham operations director Aliyyah-Begum Nasser added: “I am incredibly proud of the team at Askham Hall for achieving the Gold Standards Framework. There is something immensely rewarding about providing residents who are approaching the end of life with a truly dignified and person-centred service. Naturally, this is a very challenging time for friends and family so to know that we are doing everything we can to ensure they remain comfortable is a real privilege. The outstanding staff at Askham Hall have worked so hard to deliver such a high standard of palliative care and for it to be delivered in such a professional manner is a true testament to each individual.”
