Sherdley Court awarded platinum status for end of life care

Sherdley Court, on Rainhill Road, scored 49 marks out of a potential 50 following a recent inspection.

The care home, which is managed by national adult health and social care charity Making Space, went through a rigorous process in order to achieve the accreditation, which lasts for three years.

Representatives from Sherdley Court will now travel to London on the 29 September to receive their award at the Ambassadors Hotel in Bloomsbury.

Hayley Rowson de Vares, the manager at Sherdley Court, said: “This award an important recognition of our work in sustaining and developing excellence in end of life care, which, to us, means ensuring that people live the best lives they possibly can do for the remainder of their time.

“We were awarded the Gold Standard Framework accreditation three years ago and there was a lot of work involved in developing and maintaining what was already excellent practice. To be given platinum status with an almost perfect score is testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone who works at Sherdley Court."
