Good

Updated 11 November 2020

Choices for Living Well (Killelea) is a care home providing short term adult rehabilitation and reablement support in people's own homes. We did not look at the reablement support in people's own homes as part of this inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿The service identified an area of the home which was specifically used to support people who had been discharged from hospital with a positive test result for COVID-19.

¿Staff supported people with their wellbeing. People were supported to contact their family and friends by phone or video call.

¿The focus of the service is reablement. People were supported to be independent and encouraged to develop their skills to return home.

¿There was clear signage throughout the home to identify the COVID-19 area and the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required.

We were assured this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines as a designated care setting.
