Inspection Summary

Updated 16 April 2021

Livability John Grooms Court is a ‘care home’ providing personal care for people with physical, neurological and/or learning disabilities. The home accommodates up to 29 people in one adapted building. Each person has their own self-contained flat with kitchen and en-suite bathroom. There are also communal living room, dining room and kitchen facilities. At the time of inspection 24 people were being supported in the service.

We found the following examples of good practice:

Relatives visiting inside the service had started. A staff member was observed taking time with a relative who was leaving after their first visit, patiently explaining how to take off personal protective equipment (PPE) by showing them.

People who lived in the service missed going out so the service organised theme weekends/evenings including comic relief, karaoke, valentines day. For fire works night they made a Guy Fawkes which they named Jenny and was sat in reception with pretend fire around her chair

People who lived in the service missed out on Christmas celebrations as they had an outbreak of COVID-19. Staff secretly organised a re-arranged Christmas Day at the end of February which was a total surprise and the people really enjoyed.

The friends of the service, who fund raise on the service’s behalf, purchased a chair that lifts people when they have fallen and can’t get up, to be used in event of paramedics not being able to attend, if appropriate.
