STAFF at a Calderdale rehabilitation home for older people are celebrating official recognition of the high standards of care they provide.
The Glenholme Rehabilitation Unit at West Vale was shortlisted at the NHS Regional Awards as one of the top three units in the North of England in the NHS Queen Mother's Award category for intermediate care for older people.
The home is run jointly by Calderdale Council and the NHS.
It provides 15 residential beds for older people.
Potential users decide themselves whether to use the service.
Each user's needs are assessed and an individual rehabilitation plan is developed with them.
Judges at the Regional Health and Social Care Awards ceremony in Manchester said Glenholme "provides an excellent example of a truly user-led service development of an holistic, multidisciplinary, high-quality service.
"It shows professionals working together with service users to enable them to lead a more independent lifestyle."
Calderdale Council's group director for health and social care Philip Lewer said he was delighted Glenholme had received public recognition.
"The council and its partners in the NHS have worked hard to provide a facility which recognises and responds to the needs of users."
