The commitment is the care sector’s promise to provide those who need care and support with high quality services.
By making this pledge, The New Deanery and St Mary’s Court are publically committing to high quality care and investment in their staff to ensure confidence in the support they offer to their residents.
To receive the certificate both care homes have also committed to continue to support staff training and development in order to build the public’s confidence in the care sector.
