Stanley House’s Headway Accreditation

Stanley House Care Centre has once again achieved Headway Approved Provider status for the specialised neurological services it provides from a 41 bedded service set in the heart of Herefordshire. This coveted national accreditation is awarded to those services inspected by Headway who set the highest of standards for those affected by an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).

Headway is a leading national charity which promotes the understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provides information, support and services to survivors, their families and carers. As part of this work Headway have developed an Approved Providers Accreditation scheme for residential services supporting those affected by a brain injury.

As Headway states, “The scheme utilises standards developed to reflect the specific needs of people with an ABI. Units gaining Approved Provider status can demonstrate their provision of appropriate specialist care for those with complex, physical and/or cognitive impairment due to acquired brain injury.”

The process required Stanley House to achieve compliance against each required standard and undergo a robust on-site assessment, within an inspection system that also involves unannounced interim reviews.

Jo McCabe, Care Centre Director of Stanley House, was thrilled at the result and couldn’t be more proud of her team. “We pride ourselves in the dedicated and passionate way in which we provide specialist residential care so it is fantastic that Headway have accredited Stanley House for another 2 years.”

Stanley House’s team are committed to providing the highest standard of care – encompassing the physical, psychological, emotional and social needs of all the residents. Offering a range of specialist care pathways to suit each individual resident is what makes Stanley House so special.
