Northcare (Scotland) Ltd is a family run business which has been established for over 25 years and owns care homes in the South Lanarkshire, Glasgow City and East Renfrewshire areas. We strive to operate our homes as a home in every sense of the word. Clients will be supported to achieve independence and inclusion within the community. Any disabilities will be recognized and honoured by providing varying degrees and methods of support to suit the individual concerned. This will be undertaken in an environment which is safe and secure. The clients will be enabled to make choices and work in partnership with the care staff to maximize their quality of life.
In Northcare we are proud to have trained all of our staff through the Promoting Excellence framework which was developed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
Promoting Excellence is a framework which applies to all health and social services staff who have contact with, and provide support, care, treatment and services for people who have dementia, and their families. This framework is aspirational and future focused – meaning it is not just a description of what we do now – it is what we aspire to do in the future to support delivery of the aspirations and change actions outlined in Scotland’s National Dementia Strategy.
This framework details the knowledge and skills that will inform new ways of working for all health and social services staff to ensure we enable people with dementia, and their families to maximise their rights, choices and health and wellbeing at all stages of their unique dementia journey.
