Rosebank recognised for end of life care

A specialist dementia care home in Oxfordshire has been awarded platinum status by the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) for its end of life care.

Rosebank Care Home in Bampton was awarded the Quality Hallmark certificate by GSF for demonstrating excellence in care standards and showcasing evidence based best practice in end of life care.

The prestigious Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes (GSFCH) award places Rosebank in a select group of care homes in the United Kingdom, and one of only four in Oxfordshire, to be recognised for delivering the highest standards of care for people in the final years of life. 

GSFCH aims to improve quality of care for residents in the last years of life, to develop collaboration across boundaries and to reduce avoidable hospital admissions. 

The certification process includes assessment against 20 clear standards of best practice; reviewing the care of residents using the After-Death Analysis Audit Tool and Quality Assessment Visit and reviewing the integration of the processes into everyday practice.

Rosebank Care Home owner, Jane Roberts, adds: “I am thrilled that the hard work put in by our dedicated team has been recognised through this award. Our residents and their wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do here at Rosebank. 

“We are passionate about ensuring that the highest standards of care are in place and we work hard to sustain those standards, so to receive this award is a testament to the whole team.”
