Values at our core
We are recognised by the Care Quality Commission as providing high quality care, having achieved a "GOOD" rating overall and in all areas of inspection - except for Care, where they rated us "OUTSTANDING". We invest heavily in the training and support of our staff, knowing that they are the people who matter most to those who use our services. However, the first step is to ensure that every member of the team is someone we would be delighted to have caring for our own families. To that end we hold firm to our founding values of Compassion, Helpfulness, Respect, Integrity, Sensitivity and Trustworthiness.
As part of the Prama Foundation family of charities, we offer subsidised care to some of our clients, and the PramaLife charity offers wide range of community activities for older people. Our aim is to provide support services which tackle social isolation and lead to increased personal independence, self-sufficiency and dignity, including age-friendly and dementia-friendly clubs, carers’ support groups, community based activities and inter-generational activities.
The vision of the Prama Foundation is of a world where no-one is unfairly disadvantaged or excluded due to age or infirmity and where everyone can enjoy life as they age. The foundations is actively involved in networks and groups that work towards this aim, including the Age-Friendly Communities programme, Aging Well without Children and the United Nations Rights of the Older Person development group.
