  • Sector leaders 'blown away' by visit to Royal Star & Garter Homes

    Sector leaders 'blown away' by visit to Royal Star & Garter Homes

    13.09.18 Royal Star & Garter Homes, which cares for veterans and their partners who have disabilities and dementia and has homes in Solihull and Surbiton (Surrey), has been praised by Health Education England chair Sir Keith Pearson and chief nurse Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt. The pair visited the charity’s Surbiton home to discuss a new nursing associate role. “We’ve learned a great deal about how to provide care, particularly care for people living with dementia,” Sir Keith said. “It is humbling to see what is done here.” Professor Bayliss-Pratt agreed: “I’ve been overwhelmed and blown away by the kindness, the thoughtfulness, and the fact that people are really thinking about ‘how do I care really kindly and compassionately’ for these residents.” Royal Star & Garter Homes provides learning opportunities for training nursing associates from St George’s University Hospital and Kingston Hospital in south London.
