Yorkshire Care Operator Racks Up Five Gold Awards

All five of Czajka Care Group’s care and nursing homes now boast the prestigious Gold Standard Framework Accreditation Quality Hallmark Award, after Fairmount Nursing Home in Nab Wood near Shipley was presented with the prestigious accolade this month.

Saltaire based Czajka Care Group’s Brookfield Care Home and Staveley Birk Leas Nursing Home, which are also both in Nab Wood, secured the awards earlier this year. The company’s Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton and Beanlands Nursing Home in Cross Hills already held the accreditations.

As part of the award, care homes are put through a rigorous assessment programme and the homes’ team members have to complete an intensive nine month training programme. Inspectors also carry out a comprehensive review across all areas of care that residents who are nearing the end of their lives receive.

Konrad Czajka, managing director of Czajka Care Group, says: “For all five of our homes to achieve the Gold Standard Framework is a major achievement and demonstrates the high standards that flow throughout our organisation”.

The inspectors praised how the Gold Standard Framework is embedded in Fairmount Nursing Home’s day to day operations. They also highlighted how its range of facilities, including the bowling green, clubhouse, bar, restaurant, gym, swimming pool and extensive gardens, all add to the quality of life for both residents and their families.

The National Gold Standards Framework Centre in End of Life Care now plans to use examples of Czajka Care Group’s work to showcase best practice and inspire other care operators throughout the UK.
