Mount Pleasant Receives Dignity in Care Award

Mount Pleasant care home in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, has been named a winner at the Staffordshire County Council’s Dignity in Care Awards. Our award was given under the learning category for promoting dignity through learning, training or knowledge.

We submitted details on our new in-house training programme for all colleagues – Living in my World, which helps them understand what it is like to live with dementia.

The award entry also explains our commitment to dignity in care through the registration of dignity champions and the observance of the ten dignity challenges set out by the National Dignity Council.

Shirley Way, the project lead for the Staffordshire Dignity in Care Awards said of the award “Mount Pleasant thoroughly deserved this award as it was clear that the home went above and beyond to ensure that dignity was promoted and installed every day in every way.” She continued “Some of the feedback from testimonies was just wonderful and the examples of the knit and natter groups, showed that everyone was involved and treated as equals within the home.”

Home manager Nikki Kelly said: “It’s wonderful to receive such an accolade. Our residents tell us they feel their dignity is respected, but team are absolutely delighted to have won this award and receive praise from Staffordshire County Council.”

Mount Pleasant is a modern, purpose-built care home that provides outstanding residential and specialist dementia care for up to 50 older people.
