Watford Care Home Awarded With Prestigious Dementia Care Kitemark

RMBI care home Prince Michael of Kent Court in Watford has been recognised with a national award for its exceptional care of people living with dementia.

Only a small number of care homes in the UK have been awarded the ‘Butterfly Service’ kitemark, and Prince Michael of Kent Court joins five other RMBI care homes around the country to meet the tough criteria.

The ‘Butterfly Service’ status is a nationally recognised kitemark awarded by Dementia Care Matters to identify care homes which are committed to achieving excellent dementia care and providing residents with a high quality of life.

Last year Prince Michael of Kent Court officially opened a pioneering Dementia Café within the Dementia Support Unit of the care home. The space, which is the first of its kind at the RMBI, is designed to provide a safe and secure setting for residents with dementia to enjoy with family and friends.

Tracy Lydon, Activities Coordinator at the care home, said, “I’ve worked at the care home for 18 years and I take great pride in helping our residents to live their life in a dignified and meaningful way.”
