17 Feb Eleanor Palmer Trust achieves variant registration with CSCI
On 3rd March 2009 the Trust was awarded dementia registration by CSCI (The Commission for Social Care Inspection) to go alongside our residential care registration. We are now able to consider taking in residents who may be a little confused or have been diagnosed as suffering from dementia.
It is also very helpful for our existing residents, who sometimes develop dementia whilst in the Home. Being accepted for variant registration means that they can continue to stay here, and do not need to be moved on to somewhere else which would only increase their state of confusion.
The Home is very pleased to have achieved this, which has meant a lot of training for the staff and improvements in working practices.
Fred Park, Clerk to the Trustees, said ‘This demonstrates our commitment to our residents and our staff. A lot of preparation and hard work has gone into achieving this and means that we will be able to provide an even better standard of care for family’s loved ones who are living with us.
