The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bankwood Care Home is based on 96 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.747 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.747 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.747 for Bankwood Care Home is based on 96 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • 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 4.747 for Bankwood Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (867 Excellents x 5) + (235 Goods x 4) + (25 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 1127 Ratings = 4.747

    • 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:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 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.)

      3. (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 5 for Bankwood Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 95 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 95 Positive Reviews = 9.500 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (95 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 4.750 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

We were very impressed with the care my father received and the dedication of all the staff. They treat the residents with the utmost care and concern for their wellbeing, both mental and physical. We felt my father was in a safe, secure environment, being closely monitored, by day and night. The care manager is a lovely person and genuinely cares for each of her residents and her example is followed by every member of her staff. Bankwood never seems like an institution and is very much a home-from-home. Visitors are welcomed and encouraged to join in the many activities arranged for the residents. The nursing care my father received was excellent. He was kept clean, with fresh clothing each day. The staff are very friendly and were genuinely upset when my father died. Their caring, sympathetic attitude towards his family, was much appreciated at such a difficult and sad time for us. I cannot praise the manager and staff highly enough for the excellent care he received in his last weeks of life.

A number if Church members from Duffield Baptist Church conduct a monthly Christian worship service supported by the coordinator. The home is always very well presented and staff are generally cooperative.

Bankwood Care Home is an excellent care home where the staff are all very friendly and always have a smile on their faces. Nothing is ever too much trouble and any questions are always answered courteously. Bankwood Care Home is always clean and tidy and the only criticism is the "lift" which breaks and groans! I would certainly recommend Bankwood as a very caring home where everyone appears to be well looked after.

I have been visiting the home for about 12 years. I always meet the staff who are friendly, kind to the residents and really seem to care. In all those years I have seen the very best that a nursing home can provide.
If I had a relative who needed to be nursed I would definitely choose Bankwood Care Home because I can see quality care.

My aunt was in Bankwood Care Home for just a month before she died in early October. She was really very poorly and clearly wanted to be at home which was impossible. The staff at Bankwood Care Home took real care of her, treated her with affection, nursed her professionally and assisted her until her death.

Always a lovely welcome by all staff when visiting my mum. Cups of tea offered regularly during a visit! Rooms lovely, food excellent and cooked to personal requirements with plenty of choice. Very clean and fresh environment with plenty of activities if required or quiet time if preferred for mum. All staff are very friendly, nursing care was excellent and any change in my mum was communicated to me. Mum's end of life was dealt with in a very loving, caring manner. Mum and our family/friends couldn't have wished for better.

Home position was ideal. Lovely,friendly, compassionate and understanding staff, not only of our mother, but also friends and relatives too. All mums needs were met. Whenever I went to see mum she said how lovely it was there. Nothing was too much trouble. From start to the end, from morning papers to bed time. From one shift to another, the service provided at Bankwood was 24/7 and 110% service was given. Thank you very much Bankwood.

My father sadly passed away on 1st Sept 2016 at Bankwood Care Home and my comments relate to his time at Bankwood Care Home from 14th March 2016 to his passing. He had a brain stem stroke on 6th Feb 2016 and spent 5 weeks in the hospital. After confounding medical staff he was deemed well enough to be discharged to Bankwood. The superb care and attention given by the manager and her team quickly brought about an improvement in his condition and quality of life. The 6 months that we had with this special 91-year-old man was a real bonus and provided some excellent quality family time to him and the whole family and enabled him to meet and get to know his 3rd great grandchild and spend more time with his other two. We are all convinced that this would not have been possible without the "Bankwood effect". His care during the last few days was exemplary providing a peaceful and dignified passing.

I am very pleased with the care which my mother is receiving at Bankwood. Staff ar caring, supportive and very patient. They are well aware of and respond appropriately to my mother's individual and sometimes quite quirky needs. Nursing staff are quick to call in medical professionals when needed and always phone to update me on any medical problems and appointments. I am impressed by how not just nursing staff and carers, but also kitchen staff, laundry staff and cleaners make an effort to form close relationships with the residents. Everyone is quick to respond to any queries I have.

I am happy with the location and the presentation of the home and the attitude of the management and personnel employed. The quality and presentation of the food is of a high standard. The furnishings are well maintained. I appreciated that at certain times of the day (meals etc) it is difficult to respond to urgent patients needs (toilet needs) which can frustrate those in need. The relationships between patient (resident) and personnel is good.

After my dad had a fall in December he was no longer able to look after himself. So I had to find a care home for him. I visited several homes before Bankwood and wasn't very impressed. When I viewed Bankwood I was really impressed with the standards of care and with the friendliness of the staff. I couldn't wish for a better place for him to be. Every time I visit I am greeted like an old friend, which makes my visits much more pleasant. I know that he is in the best possible place.

When mother came into this home after a bad stroke she was in a very distressed state. Due to the work and patience of the staff she is now more settled and calmer. Although there is no communication she is always spoken to in a respectful way and treated with dignity.

Our father was at Bankwood for 4 years until he passed away this month. He really enjoyed his final years there and was well cared for. The staff are fantastic, especially the manager who runs the facility impeccably. She has full control over what is going on and the management of the staff. She also is extremely caring for the residents (as are all the staff) and put their needs as her top priority. The home is set in a beautiful location and our father spent as much time as possible enjoying the view from the deck.

My mother was only at Bankwood Care Home for a short while (passed away 7th March 2016) but her stay was very comfortable. She was got up every day where possible. Always dressed nicely and had her hair done (important to mum). When she became poorly, the staff were very good to her and myself. Also on the day of her passing again very kind and supportive to myself and family. They run a very good home for the people there. Thank you.

I am very happy with the care and consideration given to my mother. One example being, a visitor of the resident in the next room to mum's made a point of telling me she had overheard (on a previous visit) a carer in with my mum and how impressed she was with the kindness and patience she was shown. It was lovely to hear as you never know what happens when your're not there.

When people ask me if I'm happy in a care home, my answer is yes, I have no complaints. I didn't know until I arrived at Bankwood. Two of my friends form childhood lived here, we have rekindled our friendship. This is the next best thing to my own home, but now I have very good care and the staff are my friends. The activities lady is very good, there is never a dull moment, and we are always busy.

Excellent experience from being shown around the home to reserving a bed, care and compassion from the manager after being messed around by the hospital cancelling the bed in error. My mum arrived at the home by ambulance. Everyone was friendly helpful, kind, compassionate and caring it made a stressful day more bearable. The care and compassion was so apparent from the first day and it was so great to know that my mum is well cared for and has settled very quickly. Staff are attentive and there is genuine concern. Each person has their individual meeds met. This is a real home and the people are fantastic thank you. I've could not have chosen a better home for mum as this is the best one with lovely friendly competent people.

My sister and I feel fortunate to have found Bankwood when it became apparent that our 94 year old mother could no longer cope at home. The manager is excellent and sets very high standards for her staff. In the three months that Mum has been at Bankwood we have found staff (carers, nurses, kitchen staff, housekeeping staff, maintenance staff, activities coordinator) to be warm and caring towards the residents. The atmosphere of the care home is cheerful and fun. It is brightly decorated and doesn't smell! It took Mum a while to settle in as it was such a wrench to leave her own home, but everyone was patient with her and listened to her concerns.

I have just been to my first relatives' meeting, which I enjoyed very much. It was good to talk with other relatives and swap experiences. The meeting was just the right mixture of informal chat and discussion of important topics such as the question of whether CCTV should be installed. We all of us felt confident that the ethos set by the manager, the systems in place, and the eyes and ears of staff, relatives and residents mean that bullying and ill-treatment will not take place at Bankwood.

I tell people that Bankwood is like a little village. Mum has her own cosy room which she enjoys, but she can walk along the corridor (using her frame) to chat with friends in the conservatory, or to eat in the dining room.

I would not hesitate to recommend Bankwood to anyone looking for a really good care home for their relative.

One in a million!! Never before have I witnessed care to such high standards, and residents treated with such dignity and devotion. Bankwood offers unrivaled facilities in a beautiful setting, complimented with friendly, helpful, well trained, and devoted staff, who stop at nothing to ensure the comfort and happiness of their residents. It really does bring a lump to my throat to see my Mother looked after so well.

Staff very professional and show genuine care plenty of activities, good range of food. Always seemed to be plenty of staff who were very jolly. My mum was always well presented and clean. Nurses kept me up to date on a regular basis, staff trusted to be responsible for all my mum's needs, including obtaining clothes, personal care items foot care and hairdressing. Manager is very hands on and gets involved with the residents. It never felt like an institution it was home, my mum's home for 8 1/2 years. Very little change in staff, mum has same named nurse for all her time there.

As a new visitor to the home I was highly impressed by the warmth, care and comfort given to each resident. Real consideration and time given to their individual needs.
They are a great ambassador for care homes and I felt this home would be the place I would want to spend the final stage of my life, what better recommendation! When we took clothes in for my friends they spent time going through them with her, they suggested special visits into town to buy more. They accompanied her on visits to her home, now on the market. They keep an eye on her diet, they respected her privacy but welcomed her interaction.

I was sent to Bankwood care home with not much hope of surviving long, from the Royal Derby Hospital. I am now at the end of this month returning to my own home, able to walk, eat, drink and have a good standard of life with the care and attention. I have received from the nurses and carers at Bankwood. I feel I have been given a second chance from all the help given at Bankwood. I hope to be able to enjoy my family for a few years more. I can honestly say my time at Bankwood. has been genuinely very enjoyable.

Mum came into Bankwood Care Home from the local hospital. She has been in hospital for 16 weeks and her health had deteriorated. She was very frail, underweight/dangerously so and could not transfer without a hoist. From the moment mum was admitted to Bankwood Care Home we as a family felt happy in the knowledge that mum was being looked after and that gave us tremendous peace of mind. All the staff have been amazing. Gently encouraging mum to eat and with time move about to the point where mum is now walking with a stick and has the real prospect of going back to her home - something none of us could have imagined. Thank you Bankwood Care Home.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Bankwood as a care home. From the wonderful manager to the cleaning staff, everyone has treated my mother, and myself as part of the family.

My friend has been a resident of Bankwood for the past five years. During that time the care she has received has been excellent. From being treated with dignity and respect, especially around personal care, to ensuring she continually receives appropriate and adequate nutrition and hydration. All Bankwood staff, from carers, managers, domestics, activities, as well as professional each staff member genuinely cares about the health and wellbeing of the residents. The care home is warm, welcoming and clean. I would as a Derbyshire county council adult care assessor and care coordinator have no hesitation in recommending.

My father was a resident here for over 18 months and I had to move him in August as his dementia worsened and he died soon afterwards. We were both upset to leave as he considered this his home and had many friends here, the staff have been like my family over the past months and I will continue to see then as I know that is what he would want and cannot speak highly enough of their care.

My mother has been living at Bankwood now for two years. She has always been cared for and looked after very well. At first she had to adapt and start to feel comfortable in her new home, which with her dementia was a challenge. The staff at Bankwood helped her with genuine care and support. She has for a long time now been happy, feels safe and cared for and despite her difficulties tries to express her comfort. She has started to join in on the many trips in the local area, with the family accompanying her. Her weight is increasing, which was a concern before she started living at Bankwood. Life is so much better for her and for her family thanks to all the staff.

An excellent nursing/care home- well managed despite rather logistically difficult lay out of building. Very well trained staff who treat residents with empathy and dignity- "teamwork" very evident- striking variety of activities in which residents are encouraged to participate. The home reflects a highly organised management and nursing team.

My son is being cared for very well in the home. The manager is always thinking of ways to help ways of making my son comfortable and happy. Nothing is to much trouble. The nurses look after him very well, always checking him. He cannot speak but they always seem to know what are his needs, they are very thorough. Also the carers are good at making sure he is clean and turn him when needed in his bed. Check him every hour as he is epileptic. He goes down to the living room twice a day in his wheelchair, hoisted out of bed as he is only able to be out of bed for 2 hours a day. The home always smells clean and staff very friendly. My husband and I would recommend this home to anyone.

The decor is bright and cheerful with linen tablecloths, napkins and flowers everywherel This again adds to the pleasant environment. The food is delicious and residents are always saying how good it is. There is often a glass of wine to complement the meal.

Accommodation had to be sound following my hip operation as I live alone. I knew of 2 people who had been residents in Bankwood and had good reports. I was lucky to get a room for my respite care. The staff have been excellent coping with my limitations. I have had help with my walking from Michelle and feel more capable to manage at home. A visit from my own G.P was arranged to check for extra drugs.

I have visited my completely- dependant friend for 4 years.
I have no knowledge of the finer points of her care and have nothing to do with the finances, so can only report on my impressions as a visitor.
The home itself is welcoming - clean and well decorated, with many personal touches. My friend always looks clean and cared for herself, her hair, her clothes, her bedding. The staff are friendly and patient.
The care that my friend receives is far as I can see is gentle an effective.

An experience when visiting - A warm comfortable home staffed by friendly people who seem to care for residents - rooms seem good - food accordingly to friends "Ron" is good. If I had to be in a care home situation I would think "Bankwood" would be ok.

We have been pleased with the care mum has received over the 6 months she has been in Bankwood. The staff are always welcoming, cheerful and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Mum is always clean and comfortable and enjoys the food, which is fresh and varied.

My 94 years old mother could no longer look after herself in her own house. She has quickly settle into Bankwood, and the level of care is excellent. The staff are friendly and always helpful, and willing to assist. Mum is very happy, even with her Dementia, is always raising the food, staff and activities programmes.

I promised my husband of 30 years that he would die in his bed, at home. Physically I was unable for that to happen, though I did try for weeks. His subsequent experiences in hospital were dreadful to see and I think he was too sunk in misery to appreciate his good fortune when we found Bankswood, but I appreciated it. The delightful surroundings, the whole ambience of the home, the pleasant almost happy atmosphere and most of all the loving kindness and care coupled with efficient and perfectly organised treatment- all wonderful! I was happier about Derek at last. May I reserve my place in advance please.

My mother was a resident of Bankwood until last June when she sadly died. The staff and management have always been so caring and welcoming that I like to come back as a volunteer form time to time as I like to contribute and give something back. I have made friendships with some of the residents so its nice to see them and join in some of the activities with them.

I have visited my good old friend for the past twelve years. Mostly every Friday. I think the staff are excellent very caring and as a past carer I know the job can be very demanding. The activities are very good. My friend can be hard to please, but seems happy when the activities are happening and she can please herself as she is 103 this coming July.

I have just started to have massages in the village and enjoy going. I enjoy having my hair done by Ellan the hairdresser here, and reflexology and manicures every week by Joy. I enjoy my beauty treatments. Also in the good weather I go to mini shows every Sunday. There is always something happening here, which I like, I like my food choices too very much.

My husband has been living at Bankwood for several years, although his health has deteriorated the care he receives has been and still is very good. The food is excellent (good variety of meals to choose). Michelle and Emma, activities co-ordinators are brilliant, providing lots of things for residents to do and various people coming to entertain. Andy (maintenance) is worth his weight in gold, he can turn his hand to anything. The nurses are really caring and the care assistants are helpful and good at the job. Lastly Issie (the Manager) whenever I have any concerns about Michael she sorts it our and is one of the best in my opinion.

I am very fashion conscious and the girls take great care when dressing me, I like to pick my clothes and scarfs and we have great fun. I join in with the activities and love going out on trips but I don't like the exercise as much as I did when I was younger. I think people would have to go along way to find a home to compete with this one.

I have been to Bankwood 3 times for respite during the past year, each visit I have been overwhelmed by the welcome I have received. The staff have gone out of their way to say welcome back. The care I receive is very personalised, and I am very much at ease with the staff. My every wish is dealt with. The food is brilliant quality, I'm never hungry. I would recommend Bankwood it is second to none. The maintenance man Andy is very prompt with any issues, such a nice responsible man.

I like living here because it is always safe, and that makes me feel secure. This makes my family happy to see me happy. I go out to the pub and garden centre, they are good trips, we go in the homes minibus, the activities lady drives she also takes me to singing for the brain. The staff are always good and cannot be altered in any way, I have been to other homes, this is the best one out - that is true.

I am an occasional visitor since 2012 and have been impressed by the standard of care afforded to the resident and by the friendliness of all the staff. The attention given to Mrs Schofield at all times has been first rate and could not be bettered in any way.

High Standard of Care

My father was cared for at Bankwood for the last few weeks of his life, we thought that the care he received was of a very high standard. All members of staff were friendly and kind and treated him with respect and dignity. When we visited we were always greeted with smiling faces and made to feel part of the Bankwood family. his room was of a reasonable size and well furnished but it was very dark and the lights needed to be switched on all the time. We felt that this was a compromise well worth making in view of the excellent standard he received. We have no hesitation in recommending this care home highly.

Attitude of Staff

What is noticeable about Bankwood is the constant good nature of the staff, however much pressure they are under. They always have a smile and friendly word for all the residents. Likewise they are welcoming to visitors and are always ready to offer help. As with almost all organisations you care to name, this culture is the result of good leadership.
