How do we meet the National Gold Standards Framework?
Gold Standard end-of-life care at Jackman’s Lodge
Here at Jackman’s Lodge, we are committed to providing our residents with the best possible care throughout their time at our welcoming care home. We are proud to have been awarded the highest status within the National Gold Standards Framework. Our dedicated staff work closely with residents, families and colleagues to ensure that our standard of care remains first-rate.
Let us talk you through what the National Gold Standards Framework is and how we continue to meet it at Jackman’s Lodge…
What is the National Gold Standards Framework?
Founded by Professor Keri Thomas OBE in 2000, the Gold Standards Framework is the UK’s leading training provider for workers caring for people in their last years of life. The Gold Standards Framework helps teams in all settings provide high-quality and supportive end-of-life care. The Framework proudly enables people to live comfortably and well until they pass away. Doctors, nurses and carers have received Gold Standards Framework training to improve the care of millions of people over the years since it was first founded.
Here at Jackman’s Lodge, we strive to continually develop our quality of care, supporting both residents and families alike.
What are the aims of the National Gold Standards Framework?
The Gold Standards Framework aims to:
Improve the quality of care for those nearing the end of life, supporting their choices
Improve the collaboration of the teams supporting those nearing end of life
Improve outcomes for people enabling more to live and die in the place and manner of their choosing
When staying at Jackman’s Lodge, your loved one will become a part of our care home family. Our nurses will take the time to get to know your loved one, their wishes and how we can best support them during their time with us. We understand it can be difficult when your loved one requires end-of-life care, which is why we go out of our way to make sure that your family feels supported.
