The Royal Star & Garter Home in Solihull Retains Level 1 Kitemark for Dementia Care


Staff at The Royal Star & Garter Homes were delighted that the Solihull Home’s Roundel Wing has retained its Level 1 status, following the recent, unannounced audit by Dementia Care Matters.


Level 1 is the highest accolade achievable through Dementia Care Matters’ National Kitemark awards. It indicates that the Home is demonstrating exceptional person-centred dementia care.


The Solihull Home’s Manager, Sue Tompkins, commented: “I am overwhelmed with pride, the whole team has strived so hard to maintain the ultimate accolade of Level 1 and the efforts have all been for the love of the very special residents that are living at The Royal Star & Garter Home in Solihull.”


Such has been the dedication of the dementia care teams that the Charity is now able to provide dementia care training in-house, working in conjunction with the expertise and experience of its highly motivated staff, who understand person-centred care and ensure that the highest possible standards are maintained.
