The Gold Standards Framework
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 needs, wishes and preferences, and to plan care on that basis, enabling them to live and die well with dignity, where they choose.
As part of this process, this home has joined the National Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes Programme.
