Hythe care home awarded Care VIP accreditation

Care UK’s Carpathia Grange in Hythe, Hampshire, has been awarded Care VIP accreditation for its work with residents living with dementia.

The Care Fit for VIPS framework centres around four key aspects: valuing those living with dementia, treating everyone as an individual, showing empathy towards those living with the condition, and recognising the need for a stimulating social environment.

Carpathia Grange achieved a score of over 90 per cent across all elements of care. It was praised for its ‘truly person-centred care’ and the meaningful engagement shown between staff and residents during activities and conversations.

The report noted that Namaste care sessions have been integrated into daily life within the home, further supported by the home’s new Namaste Hub. Namaste sessions promote a holistic approach to caring for someone living with dementia.

Staff were praised for the high level of support given to residents at all times, highlighting the team as being ‘gentle’, ‘encouraging’, and ‘kind’.

Pooja Dhoot, home manager at Carpathia Grange, said: “We’re delighted that our hard work has been recognised with the Care VIP accreditation. Everyone here at Carpathia Grange works hard to ensure we provide person-centred care to the highest standard possible and that every one of the residents feels supported, valued and safe.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the whole team, as well as the residents and relatives who make Carpathia Grange a wonderful place to call home.”
