Celebrating our 5th birthday at Green Tree Court
We recently celebrated 5 years of caring for you and your loved ones here at Green Tree Court. During this time, we have gone from strength to strength and proudly provide the highest standards of nurse-led, personalised care with refined, luxury hotel-style living.
For our birthday party, we celebrated in style with a Great Gatsby themed party. Residents, families and staff dressed up and enjoyed a performance from a Lindy Hop Dance troupe, followed by a vintage-themed afternoon tea. We then shared an impressive cake with our residents, staff and their families to mark the occasion.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve achieved across the years.
We achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the CQC
In 2017, we joined an elite group of residential care homes that are rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC. Only around 1% of care homes achieve this accolade.
We were delighted by the hard work and dedication that our community had put into Green Tree Court, resulting in this win. However, our work didn’t stop there.
We gained top marks for creating a dementia-friendly environment
In 2018, Stirling University awarded us with their Gold Standard, an internationally recognised benchmark devised by the Dementia Services Development Centre. Our overall score was an impressive 94% and this recognised the efforts we’ve put into our purpose-built environment.
Our specialist dementia wing is designed to improve the quality of life of our residents. Examples of the innovative features we’ve incorporated into the design are memory boxes containing familiar personal items to help our residents identify their private room. Our Activities Coordinator, Merle, also specialises in dementia-friendly activities to keep our residents fit, healthy and happy.
We won ‘Care Home of the Year’
In 2018, we were honoured to win the ‘Care Home of the Year’ category at the 20th National Care Awards. This award is run by the Caring Times and celebrate the very best people in the care sector, highlighting excellence and awarding people who work to provide the highest standard of care.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past 5 years. We are lucky to have a fantastic community of like minded people who all truly believe in our quest to continuously raise the bar of residential care. Here’s to many more!
