Áras Chois Fharraige takes gold award for excellence

in An Spidéal / Spiddal

Áras Chois Fharraige nursing home in Spiddal has achieved a trio of awards over the past few months.

The home received the Gold Award for Excellence at the Irish Accommodation Awards in Westport, on January 30, just days after it achieved the Sonas Quality Mark for dementia care.

In November, the home’s activities co-ordinator Katie Folan was a finalist in the Nursing Homes Ireland Care Awards.

Director of Nursing, Aideen Stanley said that the three awards reflected the commitment of members of the care team to delivering the highest standards of resident-centred care, adding: ‘Comhghairdeachas to the Áras staff for a valiant commitment in a collaborative effort.’

The home joins industry leaders such as Ashford Castle, The G Hotel and the Galway Clinic in winning the IASI Gold Award. The Irish Accommodation Services award reflects the strict hygiene measures in place.
