We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

This inspection took place on 28 November and 4 December 2017 and was unannounced on the first day. It was undertaken by two adult social care inspectors.

Prior to the inspection we reviewed information we held about the service and provider, including notifications the provider had sent us. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law. We used this information to help us plan the inspection. We also asked the local authority and Healthwatch Stockport for their views on the service. They raised no concerns.

As some people living at Abbeyfield House – Stockport were not able to tell us about their experiences, we used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk to us.

During our inspection we spoke with four people who used the service, six visitors, the registered manager, deputy manager, the cleaner, the cook and three support workers.

We carried out observations in communal areas of the service. We looked at three care records, a range of documents relating to how the service was managed including medication records, three staff personnel files, staff training records, duty rotas, policies and procedures and quality assurance audits.
