Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 20 March 2021

White Lodge Rest Home is a care home for up to 28 older people who may be living with dementia. At the time of the inspection there were 21 people living at the service.

The building is converted from several residential properties. There are bedrooms across the ground and first floors and several shared living areas for people to use.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service had implemented robust procedures to reduce the risk of COVID-19, including supporting residents to wear masks, where possible, during personal care. The provider had built a garden building for use as a staff break room and visitors area, which was near completion.

The home had a robust system for admissions, and had contingency plans in place for a potential outbreak. As some people would not be able to isolate, the home had coloured wrist bands to support identification of people’s isolation status easily.

Staff were supported to shield, if needed. Staff were able to launder their uniforms at work to reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19. The provider had built additional storage to support safe and effective management of personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies.
