Specialist dementia care provider Vida Healthcare has secured Care Certificate Approved Awarder status from South Yorkshire Region Education and Careers (SYREC).
This certification enables Vida Healthcare to issue industry recognised Care Certificates to care professionals, allowing greater confidence in the abilities and professional standards of care throughout the region.
Vida has been granted Approved Awarder status in light of its ability to demonstrate quality care and support processes, and the high quality of training and care delivered by employees throughout its facilities. Vida Healthcare will now appear on the list of Care Certificate Approved Awarders, promoting the employer as a good example of good employment practice, and additionally evidencing to CQC and contractual partners that staff training commitments are of superior quality.
Bernadette Mossman, healthcare director at Vida Healthcare, commented: “Care Certificate Approved Awarder status builds on our existing certifications to demonstrate our industry leading commitment to the delivery of exceptional care. The person centred approach of Care Certificate Approved Awards aligns perfectly with Vida Healthcare’s approach to personalised professional development.
“We are immensely proud of our variety of accreditations. In combination with our recent certification for our Positive Interventions in Dementia Care (PIDC) programme, our new status as Care Certificate Approved Awarder allows us to stand out as an employer which is committed to high standards of quality in all delivered services.”
