Lord Hardy Court is a care home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. People in care homes receive accommodation and personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. The home is registered to provide accommodation and support for up to 60 people including people who are living with dementia.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff were supervised and monitored to ensure they followed infection control guidelines, and staff had received appropriate training in this area.

The cleaning schedule for the home had been enhanced to maintain people's safety.

Procedures for entering the home were well managed and visitors were tested for COVID-19 before meeting with people living at the home. Appropriate visiting areas had been set up.

Risk assessments had been completed and mitigating action taken to promote the health and wellbeing of high-risk staff.

Action was taken to keep friends and families in touch; this was also incorporated into activities at the home, where people were supported to make cards and take photographs for their loved ones.
