Cinnamon Trust – 5 Star

We currently hold a 5 star award with the Cinnamon Trust for our approach to animals.
The home currently has 2 very spoilt dogs, 2 tortoises, numerous chickens, 3 rabbits, a fish tank and 2 cats.
All of our animals are spoilt and very well cared for and very much loved and seen as part of the family.


Gold Standards Framework (GSF) - Beacon Award
We are proud to have been recognised for our approach to end of life care and hold a 'Beacon Award' with Gold Standards Framework (GSF) for this which is the highest award. We were one of only 50 homes, in 2012, who were successful in gaining a place with Nottinghamshire County Council, to attend 4 workshops for GSF for Care homes. The workshops helped us to think about new and innovative ways in which we could improve the delivery of our end of life care and how to use reflective practice after death, so that we could deliver more proactive and less reactive care, by using standards set out in GSF and putting them into everyday practice.

We fully support GSF and are committed to all of its standards, approaches and principles and all staff use this as a normal part of their everyday role.
