Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 10 April 2021

Chesham House is a residential home for up to ten people. The service offers accommodation, care and support to people with mental health needs. The accommodation is over two floors and includes a communal sitting and dining area and a communal kitchen. There are eight bedrooms in the main house and a further two flats in the garden. The flats are self-contained as they each have their own kitchen and bathroom. At the time of our inspection there were ten people living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff accessed the advice of relevant professionals to support people to understand COVID-19 and the impact on their usual ways of living at the home and going out. This had also helped people to understand the use of personal protective equipment.

Staff took different breaktimes so only one staff member used the staff room at any one time.

Extra cleaning was in place and records were kept to ensure everything was cleaned regularly.
