Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Outstanding

Updated 2 October 2020

Oak Lodge is a residential nursing home providing nursing and personal care to up to 60 people in a specially adapted set of connected buildings.

There are 60 bedrooms spread between three defined areas of the home, all with private toilet and sinks with shared showers and bathrooms. There are shared living areas, dining room, kitchenettes and a large kitchen.

We found the following examples of good practice.

- The provider had modified a large lounge area by building a Perspex wall. This enabled families to visit people with access from the outside only to one side of the lounge and service users come in from the home side. This area provided people with comfortable chairs and a visiting area in the warmth for colder days or when people were unwell.

- A wide variety of activities for people to keep them involved and lift the feelings of isolation, entertainer on the patio of the home with people in the lounge, contact with local children who sent pictures and letters and activities linked to events.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
