Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 26 September 2020

Sunrise of Fleet accommodates up to 78 people in one building over three floors. The first two floors were designated for 'Assisted Living', where people had a range of care needs but could carry out various aspects of daily living independently. The top floor was the 'Reminiscence' community, which had been designed as a living space suitable for people living with dementia. At the time of inspection there were 56 people living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had installed personal protective equipment and hygiene stations in key areas of the home, including frequently used walkways. This provided prompts and easy access for staff to help ensure appropriate use and disposal of this equipment.

The provider worked to minimise the pandemic’s impact on people’s wellbeing. The use of different communal areas had helped to promote social distancing, whilst ensuring people had access to regular activities and social contact with others.

The provider took a comprehensive approach to minimising the risk of infections being brought in the home. This included putting measures in place to avoid the need for staff to use public transport when commuting to and from work.

The provider had detailed plans in place around visitors to the home, which balanced risks with considerations around people’s wellbeing. Walking routes when accessing the garden for visits had been carefully planned to minimise use of communal areas. Additional staff had been assigned to clean transit routes as people made their way to and from visits. This helped to ensure these frequently used areas were clean.
