Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 21 April 2021

The Grange is a residential care home which is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 29 older people. At the time of the inspection 26 people were living at the home. People living at the home had a variety of care and support needs, such as dementia and physical disabilities. The service is provided from an adapted home across two floors with adapted facilities on each floor. Rooms were single occupancy and some had en-suite facilities.

We found the following examples of good practice.

People were well supported by staff to have telephone and internet contact with their family and friends. The service facilitated in person visits in a manner which minimised the risk of infection spread, including screened and garden visits.

Plans were in place to isolate people with COVID-19 to minimise transmission and an isolation room was used for people admitted to the home from hospital or the community. The service had good supplies of personal protective equipment that were readily available at stations throughout the service.

Visitors were asked health screening questions and to wash their hands on arrival with soap and water. Temperature checks and lateral flow tests were carried out and once a negative result was received staff facilitated the visit. Visits were staggered and visiting spaces cleaned between use.

Staff had received training on how to keep people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and staff and residents were regularly tested for COVID-19. The building was clean and free from clutter and there were enhanced cleaning practices.

Staff ensured people’s welfare had been maintained and they had sufficient stimulation, such as quizzes and games. People were also able to go for walks, escorted by staff.
