The Home is set in three acres of landscaped grounds which feature two patio areas with wheelchair access around the perimeter.

Residents are encouraged to maintain their individuality by bringing small pieces of furniture to personalise their room.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5.

A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 3.563 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Loose Valley Care Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.313

Reviewer Connection to Loose Valley Care Centre

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    2

On arrival of my fathers first day he was greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome as were his family. The staff took time to introduce themselves and explain the running of the home. During his time at the home he was encouraged to join in all the activities and events. My father was treated as an individual and his needs were met. In the last days of my fathers life he was shown kindness and dignity. They also showed care and understanding to his family at this sad time. I cannot praise them highly enough.

Dad has been very well cared for at Loose Valley. He was admitted as it was thought he was in the last weeks of life and nine months later he is still with us, all due to the excellent care he receives. Staff are lovely and very supportive to the family as well which is such a bonus when times are tough.

Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for care for their loved one. Nothing is too much trouble.
