About the service

Ashton Court Care Home is a 'care home'. Ashton Court provides nursing and personal care for to up to 42 older people, some of whom live with dementia, across four floors in one purpose-built home. There were 37 people living at the service at the time of inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice:

• Staffing levels were safe. Staff worked on separate floors and did not mix to ensure risks were minimised; there were two lifts and three stairwells to accommodate this.

• All visitors had to undergo a temperature check and sign to agree to a range of entrance criteria. There was ample PPE and handwashing facilities available at the entrance.

• The premises had been adapted where practicable to enable better social distancing for people and staff. The provider had installed a visiting pod in the dining room, with an external entrance, so families could visit their relatives, when guidance allowed.

• The provider was responsive to feedback given regarding specific areas of good practice.
