Chorley House provides personal care and support for up to four younger adults with mental health issues, learning disabilities or autistic spectrum disorder.

The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.

The service is situated in a residential area of Bolton. Three people were living at the service at the time of the inspection. There were deliberately no identifying signs outside to indicate it was a care home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Robust checks were carried out for any visitors to the home. These included, a risk questionnaire, temperature checks and a smell test. Mail and parcels were stored in a separate storage area for three days, to reduce the risk of cross infection and transmission of COVID-19.

The service had a robust cleaning schedule for all areas of the home. A deep clean schedule had been introduced in line with recommendations from the local infection control team.

Robust risk assessments were completed, making it clear how staff could reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. All staff had received training in infection control and how to use personal protective equipment (PPE) appropriately. PPE stock was of an appropriate standard and plentiful.
