Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 11 September 2020

Elmhurst Assisted Living and Care Facilities is a care home registered to support up to 11 people. The home supports older and younger adults who may have a mental health illness or live with dementia. At the time of the inspection, eight people were living there.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ People were supported to stay safe when out in the community. The registered manager risk assessed different settings people were due to visit, such as the hairdressers, to ensure they were safe for individuals to use.

¿ Where people were able, they were supported to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when in the community, or when they received visitors to help maintain their safety.

¿ Staff had adjusted their working hours to 12 hour shifts, to minimise the amount of different staff entering the building.

¿ PPE outbreak kits had been prepared, so if there was a positive case recorded within the home, the staff could respond promptly and efficiently.
