We are very pleased to have been awarded the Gold Level in our recent revalidation of the Eden Alternative.

This was achieved through interviews with a selection of team members, residents and relatives, surveys, audits and photo-based evidence.

In their summary, the validators said: “It was a pleasure to revalidate Sefton Hall. Eden has clearly been integrated into the fabric of care and is very much embraced by the registered manager and the staff team. The photographs and evidence of work products and care plans all show that the Eden philosophy of wellbeing is evident in both written documents and the actual care provided. The garden ‘Dementia Village’ theme was particularly enchanting, and this had come from an Eden project following training. Overall, relatives rated the extent to which Sefton Hall relieved boredom, loneliness, and helplessness as between seven out of ten and ten out of ten.

However, it was acknowledged that this was harder during the pandemic and was also often related to the level of understanding and extent to which Dementia impacted on a person’s well-being and wasn’t necessarily a direct reflection of the efforts of the staff team.  The manager clearly understands and demonstrates the Eden philosophy and is striving to embed this throughout everything that she and the team do. There was a clear rationale given by staff and the registered manager regarding relationship-centred care within the home, and positive relationships had clearly been built with relatives as well as the residents. There was also a clear sense of Sefton Hall having plans for the implementation of new Eden projects. “
