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 4.818 for Snapethorpe Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.818

      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

      1. 17 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 17 Positive Reviews = 1.700 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (17 Positive Reviews ÷ 62 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.548

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it is to visit here. The staff are all pleasant, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The home has a lovely calm and homely atmosphere. The food looks very nice and the person I visit certainly enjoys it. A chocolate eclair has just been eaten with relish. The person I visit seems quite content and care needs appear to be well met. Keep up the good work.

My mum moved into Snapethorpe on 1st July. At all times she has been treated with dignity and respect. Mum has advanced dementia so at times she can be confused and frightened but they have been marvellous in their care for her. She wasn't eating at all during 2 weeks she was in hospital but through patience and time they have managed to get her eating something. Before they do anything to her they talk to her and explain what they are doing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Snapethorpe to anyone else as my grandma was also a resident here 8 years ago.

My mother went into Snapethorpe Hall in April 2013, she has just passed away on June 20th 2015. From the first day she arrived she was shown nothing but kindness. The staff went above and beyond their normal duties. The regular staff treated her as they would their own mother, with kindness and great care. The staff that looked after mother most were Dale, Geneen, 2 Julies, Jack, Pat, Carol, Debbie, and Terrie. They were all brilliant and deserve the company's highest praise.
I would like to thank Jan the manager, she always has a smile and takes good care of your family needs.

The excellent staff at Snapethorpe made all the difference to my mothers stay there. She never once asked to go home which I expected. They all took the time to see she has what she needed in the two years she was in their care. I highly recommend Snapethorpe Hall.

The home is spotlessly clean as you enter & bright & fresh smelling. The staff (either carers or cleaners) are exceptionally friendly & make you feel welcome on every visit. The doctors to the rooms are always open as they are always checking patients. My sister & myself have no problems whatsoever in recommending this home as Mum seems very happy. She loves all the staff who make time to just look into the rooms & say hello & ask if she is okay.

18 months ago my mother (aged 89) was discharged from hospital after undergoing a hip operation. Her existing home (for dementia care) refused to take her back because she wasn't mobile. Snapethorpe Hall gave my mother a room, took care of her from day one and soon had her back on her feet. We celebrated her 90th birthday at the home - something I didn't think we would see. They have given excellent care and support to me. I cannot thank them enough.

I feel that my mother is very well looked after at Snapethorpe Hall, the staff are very kind and caring and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are a nice size and the residents can make them more homely with their own belongings. The activities co-ordinator is excellent and encourages everyone to take part in the various activities. There are regular relatives meetings to keep you informed of what is happening and giving you the chance to be involved. I would definitely recommend this home and have complete peace of mind.
