Congratulations to Kavanagh Place Care Home

Kavanagh Place is the latest care home to be awarded the Huntington's Disease Association Quality Assured accreditation. They provide high-quality services for people who have complex needs associated with mental illness, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, dementia and long-term conditions such as Huntington’s disease.

The accreditation is a quality assurance programme that identifies the behaviours, cultures and specialist services required for a care home to meet the needs of caring for people affected by Huntington’s disease.

Kiri Houghton, Home Manager, Kavanagh Place said:

“We’re absolutely delighted that the home is Quality Assured by the Huntington’s Disease Association. Our team is committed to providing the highest quality of care for our service users who are living with Huntington’s disease, and supporting their families. We’re proud that this has been acknowledged by the national charity. We have many years of experience supporting people with Huntington's disease and to have the Quality Assured tick is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the outstanding team we have here at Kavanagh Place.”

Helen Santini, Team Leader, Advisory Service, Huntington's Disease Association said:

"We are delighted that Kavanagh Place is the latest care home to receive Quality Assured accredited status from the Huntington's Disease Association. The evidence appeared clear that Kavanagh solidly and consistently met all standards. It was impressive to see what was happening across all the areas of care that were considered. Residents at Kavanagh Place were supported by knowledgeable staff who were clearly going the extra mile to support people with Huntington's disease and we congratulate them on their accreditation!" 

Kavanagh Place is part of Exemplar Healthcare.

Accreditation gives the care home the right to be included in our directory, a trusted resource for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
