Avonleigh Gardenss provides residential and residential dementia care for up to 59 residents in purpose-built, en suite accommodation. At the time of the inspection there were 44 people living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

There was a robust screening procedure in place for any visitors to the home, including health professionals and maintenance staff. This including a lateral flow covid test (LFT), application of PPE, health screening and taking people’s temperature.

Signs were displayed at the entrance to the service and throughout the building to remind people to be careful about infection transmission, to wash their hands, socially distance and to comply with government guidance around wearing PPE.

There was an ample supply of PPE for staff and any visitors to use. Hand sanitiser was readily available throughout the service. Staff had received training on the use of PPE and we observed staff wearing it correctly during out inspection.

The risk of infection transmission was minimised through enhanced cleaning of the building and equipment and regular infection control and prevention auditing.

People who used the service and staff were regularly tested for COVID-19 in line with current government guidance.

As visiting was currently prohibited to relatives, staff supported people to communicate with their friends and relatives through video conferencing applications on portable tablets or by telephone.
