Abbeyfield Haddenham Society Limited is a 'care home' located in the rural village of Haddenham in Buckinghamshire. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. It is registered to provide support up to 11 older people. At the time of our February 2021 inspection eight people lived at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

People were supported to maintain contact with their relatives in different ways including window visits and video calls. The service had outside facilities for garden visits when appropriate. At the time of our inspection, we saw an indoor safe visiting area for relatives to visit was being created.

Infection prevention and control (IPC) procedures were clear and followed by staff. We observed staff wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and plentiful supplies were available around the home.

Enhanced cleaning took place daily. The environment was clean and hygienic.

People admitted to the service were supported following government guidance on managing new admissions during the COVID-19 pandemic. A regular programme of testing for COVID-19 was in place for staff and people who lived in the service. All residents and staff had received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.

The IPC policy and supporting processes were up to date, regularly reviewed and in line with current guidance. The service had plans in place and knew how to respond to an outbreak of infection to ensure the safety of people and staff.
