Ty Porth Care Home receives ORCHID award

We are delighted to announce that Ty Porth, our care home in Porth, was recently presented with Hallmark’s ORCHID (Outstanding Relationship-Centred Care Home in Dementia) award for achieving all 11 outcomes of our Together Dementia Strategy.

In September 2017, we launched our strategy, outlining the actions we will undertake to help our team members deliver outstanding dementia care, training and support.

The strategy was developed following extensive consultation with 100 residents, 75 relatives and 100 team members and has been supported by a £250,000 annual investment to identify the outcomes which would have the most positive effect on our 20 communities.

After adopting a whole home approach and working together, Ty Porth achieved all 11 outcomes and were presented with a special plaque to celebrate their achievements.

Lifestyles Team Leader at Ty Porth, Hannah Christopher said: “Working towards achieving the Orchid award has been such an amazing journey for us as a home. With hard work and determination, we have managed to not only achieve all 11 outcomes, but to also strengthen our bond as a whole team.

“The strategy outcomes are not just about achieving the Orchid Award but a vision we share as a team to maintain the ‘outstanding’ standard of relationship-centred dementia care and to continue to develop what we have achieved, learn from each challenge we faced and to grow as individuals and as a team so we can evolve and give nothing but our best to the residents and each other.
