Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Outstanding

Updated 18 March 2021

Chelston Park Nursing and Residential Home provides accommodation and nursing care for a maximum of 86 older adults, some of whom may be living with dementia. There are two separate buildings on site; Chelston Park and Chelston Gardens.

Chelston Park provides accommodation with nursing and residential care for a maximum of 36 people in 31 rooms; five of the rooms are doubles so can accommodate two people if they choose to share.

Chelston Gardens is a purpose-built home which is divided into four distinct units over two floors. Chelston Gardens provides accommodation with nursing care for up to 50 older people who are living with dementia.

There are large, well maintained grounds with parking.

At the time of inspection, there were 62 people living at the service; 20 in Chelston Park and 42 people in Chelston Gardens.

We found the following examples of good practice.

When new people were admitted to the service, they were accommodated in a separate wing of the home. This helped to reduce the risks of any possible cross-infections.

There were two visitor rooms, one in each building which had been adapted to ensure visitors were able to enter from the garden and then meet their relative with a screen between them to reduce the risks of infection.

An external Infection prevention and control consultant had conducted an audit of the service and produced a report. This had provided additional assurance and supported the service to make improvements.
