Update and news 28th May 2021

Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to this week’s newsletter. We hope you find this useful in terms of giving you an update on what is happening at Culliford and what we’ve been up to, including any updates regarding COVID.

Gold Standard Framework
What does it mean for you?

When we first started the Gold Standard Framework, we had to compile a portfolio to illustrate the 20 required standards. We asked each resident what their favourite flowers were and why, which we feel sums up the importance of person-centred care and living well.

Please do also email Julie Tombs our Head of Care and GSF Lead if you have any questions around colour coding.

At all times, we continue to take direction from our local Public Health regarding the ‘R’ rate and monitor this ourselves very carefully. We will also consistently be reviewing our visiting guidance, and this may change instantly, as, and when required.

Pete Hassell – Care Assistant
We would like to congratulate Pete on achieving his NVQ Level 2 award. Pete joined the team in October 2016 and had no experience in working in care.

Pete is a member of our night staff and enjoys the variety of his work and most of all the residents. Pete has said he would like to complete his Level 3 award in the near future.

In his spare time Pete enjoys football, cricket, and walking his dog.

Sarah Riley
We continue to participate in ongoing training and Sarah has completed her LFD Testing Training this week.
Well done Sarah, well done Pete.
