The Salvation Army believes that older members of the society deserve to be treated with dignity, and to receive care when it is needed, in an environment which will enhance quality of life. Youell Court provides residential care in a safe, secure, Christian environment for both men and women who can no longer manage in their own homes.
Youell Court was opened in October 2000. The building is owned by The Salvation Army and although admission is open to anyone irrespective of personal belief, its ethos is Christian. Not all the staff are practising Christians but Youell Court is run on Christian principles, and practical care is enhanced by an awareness that people may also need spiritual support. There is an ordained minister on the management team who is available for all residents.
This purpose-built centre for the elderly accommodates residents, living in 5 self-contained suites of eight single bedrooms, each suite having its own lounge and dining area.
At Youell Court, each resident is encouraged to remain as independent as possible and to continue to make choices which enhance and enrich life, as far as is practicable. Residents are encouraged to continue with former interests if at all feasible, and also to make suggestions for social activities.
Residents are encouraged to enjoy the gardens at Youell Court which are currently being developed to provide pleasure even for those whose sight may be failing. Residents also have access to the inner courtyards where they can sit and walk in safety.
Youell Court never forgets that each resident is an individual with individual needs.

The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):
Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)
The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.5 for Youell Court is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.5
Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'
Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.
0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)
(Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.
(For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points
The Quantity Score of 3.15 for Youell Court is calculated as follows:
1 Positive Reviews = 3
0.1 x 1 Positive Reviews = 0.100
(1 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.050

How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend Youell Court?
Reviewer Connection to Youell Court
Recommendation submitted from a Website Submission by Elaine Talbott (Power of Attorney/Solicitor of Resident/Service User) on Monday 15 December 2014. Recommendation relates to November 2014.
We are very pleased with the way my cousin for whom we are responsible is looked after. She always speaks highly of all the staff (if not all the residents!) and says she is very lucky to be there. She is far healthier, relaxed and contented than she was in her own home although she obviously misses it. You are always good at sharing any concerns and happy to give us information.
Her dementia is quite frightening to her at times as she cannot remember what has happened to her home, we have the same conversations and explanations every time we visit but this is to be expected. Your staff are very patient and many of them appreciate her sense of humour and deal with her demands of "I want it now!" in a calm and patient way. When there has been a problem you have been quick to contact us in order to resolve it, even when it has been in the evening in order to calm my relative if she has been upset by not understanding what has happened to her home. I would not have any hesitation in recommending Youell Court and my husband that he would like to go there if he needed to be in a care home.
