The teams in our seven Care UK care homes in Scotland provide high quality care for older people who are living with a variety of needs, including different forms of dementia and complex health conditions.
Our home colleagues, along with our senior quality and governance teams, work in partnership with the Care Inspectorate, local authorities, residents and their families to deliver compassionate and dignified care that is tailored to residents’ individual needs and wishes.
Our work in Scotland is underpinned by the Scottish Government’s Health and Social Care Standards and the Care Inspectorate’s Quality Framework for Care Homes for Older People. Everything we do is focused on protecting residents’ rights, independence, privacy and choice, and on exceeding their expectations of care.
While 86% of our homes in Scotland are rated ‘very good’ or ‘good’ by the Care Inspectorate, we’re committed to continuous improvement in the quality of care we provide.
Our priority areas
Promoting excellence in dementia care
We have embraced Scotland’s Promoting Excellence framework, which details the knowledge and skills that everyone working in health and social services in Scotland should aim to achieve when supporting people who are living with dementia.
All Care UK colleagues in Scotland have either completed, or are close to completing the framework’s ‘informed’ level of training. All colleagues in clinical or lifestyle (activity) roles are on their way to completing its ‘skilled’ level of training. And such is our belief in the Promoting Excellence framework that we are rolling it out as a best practice methodology across our care homes in England too.
