Care home in Bury St Edmunds achieves dementia kite mark
A care home in Bury St Edmunds is one of six Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution care homes to gain a prestigious kite mark.
Cornwallis Court has been reawarded the butterfly kite mark for quality of service to people living with dementia in specialist support units.
The ‘Butterfly Service’ status is a prestigious nationally recognised kite mark, awarded by Dementia Care Matters, to identify dementia care homes that are committed to achieving good quality of life for people living in care homes.
Debra Keeling, Deputy Director of Care RMBI, says: “The ‘Butterfly Service’ kite mark is a prestigious award and to have six homes recognised for their outstanding dementia care is incredibly gratifying.
“The RMBI is committed to making its dementia care service exceptional, and our substantial investment in dementia care training for staff over the last three years is now benefiting the ever increasing number of people with the condition who are living in our homes.
“We have been working closely with Dementia Care Matters since 2009, and with a number of other specialist dementia providers, to deliver our dementia care strategy.
“Dementia Care Matters works with care providers with the aim of improving the quality of the lived experience for people living in care homes - not only for those residents living with a dementia, but also for the other residents living in the same home.”
