Daniel Yorath House, our residential brain injury service in Leeds, has been awarded accreditation by Headway’s approved care provider scheme.
The scheme, developed by brain injury support charity Headway, utilises standards developed to reflect the specific needs of people with acquired brain injury, and uses these to evaluate services such as hospitals, neurorehabilitation units, and nursing homes.
The stringent process means that services with Approved Provider status can demonstrate that their provision of care is specialist and appropriate for those with complex physical and/or cognitive impairment as a result of their brain injury.
Daniel Yorath House has been accredited by Headway for a two year period after their initial assessment in March, and will receive an unannounced review visit during that period. Feedback from the initial inspection was very positive with inspectors commenting that they enjoyed their day at Daniel Yorath House and were impressed with what they observed. The service has become one of just four services in the Yorkshire region to be recognised with Headway accreditation.
Rachael Harrison, service manager at Daniel Yorath House, said: “I am delighted that we have received Headway Approved Provider status. The feedback from families as part of the inspection was positive and I am incredibly proud of our hard working staff who have helped to make this happen.”
