The Tithebarn receives prestigious award for dementia care

05 December 2016

RMBI care home The Tithebarn, in Liverpool, has received an award for its outstanding dementia care services following a visit from Dementia Care Matters.

The ‘Butterfly Service’ status is a nationally recognised kitemark awarded by Dementia Care Matters, a leading care organisation that identifies care homes committed to achieving excellent dementia care and providing residents with a high quality of life.

Only a small selection of care homes in the UK have received the prestigious award and staff at Maud Sullivan, the Home’s dementia support house, achieved the highest possible rating ‘Level 1’ for the second year running. The Home joins several RMBI care homes that have been recognised for their dementia care services.

Home Manager Linda Johnson said: "We are delighted to receive the kitemark award for our high standards of dementia care at The Tithebarn.  We have a tremendously dedicated staff team that is passionate about supporting our residents to have a high quality of life. It’s a real honour to be recognised for our commitment to dementia care for a second year running."

Ted Corrie, whose wife Dorothy came to live at Maud Sullivan in 2012, said: “Dorothy moved into Maud Sullivan at The Tithebarn where she has received love, care and full attention from the staff since day one. The staff has been well trained to make each person comfortable, no matter what their needs are.”
