The Gold Standards Framework is a framework to help deliver a ‘gold standard of care’ for all people as they near the end of their lives.
GSF is a systematic common-sense approach to formalising best practice, so that quality end of life care becomes standard for every resident. It helps the staff to identify the needs of residents at each stage of their life, assess their problems, wishes and preferences, and to plan care on that basis, enabling them to live and die peacefully and with dignity where they choose.
As part of this process, this home has been accredited with the National Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes Programme, supported by local facilitators, the National GSF team and other colleagues.
The programme has 3 aims:
- To improve the quality of care provided for all residents.
- To improve collaboration with GPs, primary care teams and specialists
- To reduce the number of hospital admissions in the final stage of life, enabling more to die with dignity in the home, if that is their wish.
