Overview

Inspection carried out on 27 June 2011

During a routine inspection

We visited Longton Court on Monday 27 June 2011. We met the four people living at the house on the day of our visit and talked with three of them. One person was able to communicate well with us and told us about living at Longton Court.

We were told that people who live at the home like being in the area and enjoy lots of activities, some of which are associated with being in a tourist town. People are able to go on day trips to places such as London, visit their families and friends, go shopping, visit the cinema, and go to the local caf�s and other local attractions. The town centre is a few minutes walk from the house and there are local shops nearby.

We heard that the house is very busy on weekends and that there are often more members of staff working on those days. This is particularly in the summer months, to enable people to go into Weston-super-Mare and take part in and enjoy some of the events and activities organised locally.

We saw that people were able to decorate their own rooms to their liking and to have things with them that they valued. They were also able to take part in decorating the communal areas and choosing fixtures and fittings.

One person told us that he �likes living here� and likes going out to eat and playing basketball with members of staff. He told us that he feels safe and that he is well looked after. He said that he gets people coming to visit him too, including his family, which he enjoys.
