Inspection carried out on 27 November 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with two people who lived at the service who were able to tell us they were happy living there. We saw people who were unable to express their views verbally appeared well cared for. We observed that they were supported by staff who knew them well and understood their needs.

A wide range of health and social care professionals were involved in people’s care. Regular care reviews were carried out. Any advice or guidance from professionals was acted upon and incorporated into care plans.

People were encouraged and supported by staff to make decisions about their day to day lives. Others close to them, such as their family members, were also involved in decisions about their care.

We saw medicines were managed safely; people were supported with attendance for healthcare appointments.

Staff spoken with told us that working at Longton Court was “brilliant” because of the contribution they made to people having fulfilling lives. We heard they were supported by their peers and well led by the home’s manager.

In this report the name of a registered manager appears who was not in post and not managing the regulatory activities at this location at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still the registered manager on our register.
