The Abney Court team deliver the highest quality care in luxurious surroundings.
Abney Court is built within the beautiful grounds of Abney Hall in Cheadle. Even though the care home is a new state-of-the-art building, it has been designed to reflect the character of the local area. Rooms are named after local landmarks and historical figures, and vintage photos around the home enable residents who have lived locally to recall memories, people and places from the past.
The home is divided into smaller suites with each suite having its own comfortable lounge, bistro-style dining room and cluster of en-suite bedrooms. This intimate design is particularly calming for residents living with dementia who prefer less hustle and bustle.
Every aspect of the care home has been designed to enable residents to continue enjoying a superb quality of life. There is a stylish coffee shop, where residents are able to enjoy a coffee and cake while chatting to visitors. They can watch classic movies in the comfortable cinema and enjoy being pampered in the hair and beauty salon. The garden room is a lovely place to sit and enjoy views of the beautiful gardens.
Abney Court provides a range of care services, from residential and nursing care to specialist care for older people living with dementia and short-term respite care.
OverallRead overall summary
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.
Before the inspection the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed all the information we held about the service including statutory notifications. We contacted relevant agencies such as the local authority and Healthwatch. Healthwatch is an independent consumer champion that gathers and represents the views of the public about health and social care services in England.
The inspection took place on 4 October 2017 and was unannounced. Three adult social care inspectors and an expert-by-experience carried out the inspection. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
During our visit we spoke with 10 people who used the service, five visiting relatives, ten members of staff, the registered manager and operations manager. We observed how people were being cared for and looked around areas of the home, which included some peopleâs bedrooms and communal rooms. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us. We spent time looking at documents and records that related to peopleâs care and the management of the home. We looked at eight peopleâs care records.
