Reviews

8.1 Meyrick Rise has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.101)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Meyrick Rise is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meyrick Rise in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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. 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.396 for Meyrick Rise is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.396

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 3.705 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meyrick Rise is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.205

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I have visited this facility 8-10 times over the last few months and have always found the home welcoming, clean and organised. I have been greeted courteously and helpfully. Staff appear knowledgeable and caring and will give advice regarding physical/mental state and how best to conduct visits (duration etc). The home is typical of where I could imagine myself in some years to come and I think this is a good indicator of how well it is run and what good facilities exist, from the food to entertainment and recreation. I would certainly recommend Meyrick Rise to others.

Efficiency, care and attention has vastly improved over the past year. The appointment of the C.E.O and the new home management team has been instrumental in regarding the home as the 'Flagship' of the area. The complete refurbishment has also added to the ambience, and cosmetic appeal of this purpose built establishment. Further improvements are in hand including restaurant facilities. Updated menus, recruitment and training. I am personally highly satisfied with standards of care received by my wife.

The building and ambiance is 5 star. I required a place in a nursing home in order to stay for a short while after being in hospital before they could discharge me as I live alone. My son enquired of several suitable ones (it was New Year). This was the one that showed most interest over the telephone. Since my arrival I have been treated with the utmost respect and care by every member of staff. The food is very light and fresh and if the bell is rung it has been answered promptly and my request - usually for a pot of tea answered promptly. I would most certainly return.
