Overall summary & rating

Requires improvement

Updated 13 March 2021

Gifford House is a care home registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 102 older people some of whom maybe living with dementia. At the time of our inspection 47 people were using the service.

The registered manager was following the government's guidance on whole home testing for people and staff. This included using rapid testing and weekly testing for staff.

People were supported to isolate when required and the environment had been set up to encourage social distancing. The environment was easy to keep clean to minimise the risk of infection.

People were being supported to maintain contact with their families by video and telephone calls and when safe to do so visiting procedures were in place for people to see their relatives.

The service enabled people to have end of life visits from family ensuring everyone was kept safe.
