Cardiff care home receives dementia award

Military charity launches mental wellbeing training

Shire Hall Care Home in Cardiff has received an ORCHID (Outstanding Relationship-Centred Care Home in Dementia) award for achieving all 11 outcomes of their businesses’ TOGETHER dementia strategy. Since

its launch in September 2017,

Hallmark which owns Shire Hall three- year strategy has been successful in highlighting the Essex-based care group as one of the leading providers of high- quality relationship-centred care. Te strategy recognises the importance of developing relationships between residents, the team, and the residents’ families and friends with the aim of improving care outcomes for people living with dementia. It has also been supported by a £250,000 annual investment to identify the outcomes which would have the most positive effects in their communities. Hallmark Care Homes’ Managing Director, Ram Goyal, along with Head of Relationship-Centred Care, April

Dobson, recently presented the award to the Shire Hall team at a special ceremony. April said: “Te ORCHID award is all about excellence in delivering relationship-centred care and Shire Hall is

really good at that. Tey’ve taken

residents to different activities like wall climbing, ice skating, sailing; I’ve never seen anything like it. So, the ORCHID award really is the icing on the cake.” General Manager of Shire Hall Care Home, Karen Grapes said: “I am really thrilled with all the hard work the team has put into achieving this award, especially Sheila Charles, our Lifestyle Lead, and Harriet Boobyer, our Dementia Care Coordinator. Tis is yet just another great milestone for us and we will continue to work together to develop better life experiences for our residents in our future projects.” Find out more about the care home’s TOGETHER dementia strategy visit dementia-strategy/

Te Royal Air Forces Association, the charity that supports the welfare of the RAF family, is offering mental wellbeing awareness training at venues across the UK, some of which will be in Cardiff and Newport. Te initiative, named Finding It Tough?, is open to all RAF veterans and their families, plus partners, parents, siblings and children (over 18) of anyone serving in the RAF, as well as anyone working on an RAF station (e.g. MOD civil servants and defence contractors). Te specially designed training aims to equip people to be more resilient to life’s pressures. It will also help people to offer

support to others

struggling with mental wellbeing issues, and to signpost them to organisations that may be able to help. Air Marshal Sir Baz North, President of the RAF Association, said: “Te continuing stigma around

mental wellbeing issues is something which must be addressed in all walks of life. Te free courses that we are offering are a vital step towards this. “Tese courses will help people to identify the characteristics and traits associated with poor mental wellbeing so that timely and supportive action can be taken.”

Te training session will be delivered on Friday 3 April at the Royal British Legion on High Street, Cardiff. A further session will be delivered in Newport in mid-June. For more information and to book a place on one of the mental wellbeing awareness courses, visit it-tough/
