Hopton Court care home in Leeds, which is part of St Andrews group managed by Care Living, is celebrating after receiving praise from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).


The home, which is based on Hopton Mews, Leeds, was found to be fully compliant in all the required standards following a recently published inspection.


The CQC required standards include:


  • Treating people with respect and involving them in their care
  • Providing care, treatment and support that meets people’s needs
  • Caring for people safely and protecting them from harm
  • Staffing
  • Quality and suitability of management


The inspector noted that ‘care staff engaged with, and assisted people, to access meaningful activities and ‘people were treated with respect and dignity by the staff.’


The report also stated that ‘peoples’ needs were taken into account with signage and the layout of the service enabling people to move around freely and safely.’ One resident commented that ‘all staff are fine and the new manager is lovely.’


Hopton Court is a 45 bed purpose-built care home, providing residential and nursing care for older people and those suffering from dementia. In addition to offering day care, the home also offers respite care.


Home manager Teresa Taylor said: “Quality is at the core of everything we do and this positive report reflects the hard work and dedication of all members of staff here.


“I am delighted with the findings of the CQC, as our main focus here at Hopton Court is to ensure that our residents are given as much independence as possible and looked after in a safe and caring environment.”
