Stonehaven homes secure CQUIN certificate and are rewarded with a boost to their residents funds!July 5, 2011
In recent months Torbay Care Trust has run a quality assessment for providers of residential care for older people in the Torbay Area. The scheme was voluntary and invited care providers to submit evidence that their operations met a number of important ‘care standards’ as dictated by the Care Trust. Following submission of evidence and assessments of submissions Stonehaven Healthcare Ltd is delighted that its two residential care homes, Cross Park and Frensham House, were two of the 38 homes in the area to be awarded CQUIN status. In total 41 care homes submitted applications, this represents 36% of the local market. 28 passed outright (including both Cross Park and Frensham House), 10 passed ‘with conditions’ and 3 failed to achieve the necessary standards. Whilst the care homes, and the company, are delighted by the simple fact that the Cross Park and Frensham House have achieved this endorsement there was also a financial incentive of about £1,000.00 per care home. This ‘reward money’ has been allocated by the company to each homes residents fund to be spent as the residents and care team see fit. So, great care delivered and a thousand pounds to spend.
