RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME
Stoneswood became a residential care home for the elderly in the1970s. The current owners, Lee & Christine Tilley have created a vision of outstanding service for residents and has been audited by Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council, achieving an ’Excellent’ status in their Quality Scheme. In addition, Stoneswood is recognised and audited by the Care Quality Commission and has also won the carehome.co.uk Top 20 Award 2016.
Our mission is to ensure every individual lives a full and active life at Stoneswood.
In 2011 the home went through a complete refurbishment and Stoneswood has become a modern residential complex. The care home now offers a unique experience for its residents in providing a modern, sophisticated environment in the pleasant and stunning surroundings of the Saddleworth countryside. It was the vision of the business owners to create a forward thinking facility leading the way in which care is provided for the elderly.
In addition to this we have been working with the social service team, local councillors and a team of consultants to develop an extra care scheme within the 5 acre site.
This is a central and local government initiative to sensibly improve long term care needs for the elderly.
The business was awarded the “Six Steps Accreditation” in September 2014. The “Six Steps Accreditation” is aligned with the Gold Standard Framework and is achieved by working closely with the NHS to reduce hospital admissions by improving and expanding the care within our care home environment. The program involves extra training for staff and improved processes for dealing with end-of-life situations. Not only our staff but our residents and families benefit from the program.
We continually invest in our staff to ensure they are up to date with best practice and possess the knowledge to provide the best possible care and attention to our residents.
