Beechmore Court is a residential care home that provides care and support for up to 36 older people who may have dementia care needs. At the time of our inspection the home was providing care and support to 33 people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had adapted a conservatory to include a visiting pod with an intercom, allowing family and friends to visit without entering the main building. People were supported to see their visitors in the garden, or to speak to their families on the phone or via video call. The provider had introduced virtual consultations to reduce the need for external visitors to the home.

The premises had been adapted to support zoning measures.

The provider had arrangements in place to test both people and staff for COVID-19, in line with the current guidelines on testing.

The provider had clear protocols for people who were infected with COVID-19, and for people who had been admitted to the home from hospital or the community. Staff were adhering to PPE and social distancing guidance.

Staff who were more vulnerable to COVID-19 were supported and risk assessed to ensure staff and people remained safe.
