Fairway View is a residential care home providing personal care for up to 41 older people. At the time of our visit 29 people were living at Fairway View. All bedrooms were en-suite. There were a variety of communal facilities which included a a sitting room on each floor, a tea room, seating areas around the home and a visitors room.

We found the following examples of good practice:

• People were supported to maintain contact with family members and friends using telephones and video calling. There was a separate visitors’ area with a designated entrance so people could visit when it was safe to do so. Visits were currently taking place.

• Staff were observed to wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in line with government guidance. PPE was accessible throughout the service.

• Cleaning schedules had been increased to ensure high touch surfaces such as door handles and light switches were cleaned regularly. Additional cleaning had been introduced to maintain good hygiene standards.

• The service was using the space available to enable people to socially distance. The dining room had been re-designed so people could sit at a safe distance from each other.

• The service had an up to date infection control policy.

• People were safely admitted to the service in line with government guidance.

• Staff supported people to engage in socially distanced activities such as 'nails and natter' watching a film and attending a virtual church service. Staff had put measures in place so people could participate in these events safely.

• People and staff were regularly tested for COVID-19.
