Updated 3 September 2020

Foxley Lodge is a ‘care home’. The care home can accommodate up to 22 people some of whom are living with dementia. At the time of this visit 19 people were living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had appropriate arrangements for all visitors to help prevent the spread of Covid 19. Visitors were required to have their temperatures taken, complete a Covid 19 risk assessment which included screening for symptoms of Covid 19 before being allowed to enter the home. They were required to wear a face covering when visiting, and wash hands before and after mask use.

The provider had appropriate arrangements to test people and staff for Covid 19 and was following government guidance on testing. This ensured that people and staff were tested for Covid 19 so that appropriate action could be taken if any cases were identified.

The provider ensured that all their staff received appropriate training and support to understand and to manage Covid 19. This included best practice for infection control and the use of PPE.

Staff also received appropriate guidance on how to support people with dementia to understand the pandemic and Covid 19. Staff were grouped to work in specified areas of the home including domestic and housekeeping staff.

The provider made appropriate support services available to staff in order to support their mental wellbeing through the pandemic and if they became unwell and when they returned to work.

The provider made very good provision for people using the service to maintain links with family members, relatives and friends. People were supported to have visits from their relatives and friends in sheltered areas of the garden where two metre social distancing was observed. Visits were staggered and restricted to one hour and these areas were cleaned between visits.
