The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for St Mary's Care Home is based on 22 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.749 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.749 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 (including Restricted Publication) 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 9.749 for St Mary's Care Home is based on 22 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 4.749 for St Mary's Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (205 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 263 Ratings = 4.749

    • 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 St Mary's Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 22 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 22 Positive Reviews = 2.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (22 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.100 (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). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • Before 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk only accepted Recommendations (positive comments only) and the Ratings were limited to Excellent, Good & Satisfactory. These are marked up as Recommendations.

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

The management and staff within the home have worked wonders with my mother. They have managed to get her eating again and have made her into a more settled and happier person. The staff are caring, informative and helpful to both my mum, my family and in particular my father who comes with me to visit and also has learning disabilities. I can at last relax in the knowledge that she is well cared for.

Since my mother took up residence in St Mary's Care Home I have not had any worry about her. She was well looked after. The care she received in my opinion was first class. If there were problems they informed me instantly. The manager and staff are excellent to the needs of my mother.

The care provided to my father was excellent. My father felt very comfortable and safe with all staff members which was of great comfort to the family. My father was treated with dignity and all staff displayed an inherent sense of care.

My father became a resident of St Mary's approximately three weeks ago- he entered St Mary's extremely poorly. Anthony and the team have already had a significant positive impact on my fathers health. His mental health has improved drastically with visits to the park and local shops. All the staff are extremely kind, generous and caring towards my father and all of his visitors. I am very grateful for the care they are giving him. After not eating properly for nearly five months my father is eating and enjoying three delicious meals in addition to homemade treats throughout the day. The atmosphere in the home is warm and friendly from all members of staff! St Mary's provides an exceptional service to its all its residents and their families.

My brother in law has been at St Mary's for almost a year now. His care is exceptional. The staff are an amazing team. Their dedication surpasses all my expectations. They are all hard working, caring and fun. I don't think there is another job in the world as hard as this one. Not only do they take very good care of Reg they also support his wife Judith who has had found it very difficult coping with Reg's illness and the fact that he is no longer at home with her. They really are an amazing bunch and guided expertly under the care of the current Manager. Members of the family can't thank you enough.

I am very very pleased with St Marys Care Home (nursing home). My Mother is a resident here. She's deaf and has dementia, they always go the extra mile for her as they write everything down for her and are always polite and pleasant to her. They also treat myself and family very well too. When I visit I always ask if there's anything else my Mother needs and also provide myself with a cup of tea when they do their tea rounds. I'm always treated well and my Mother is well looked after, and kept up to date with her progress too.

Loving care

My mam spent the last year of her life at St Mary's. She came there very poorly and was coaxed back into eating, socialising and having some quality of life. I would use the word "contented" to describe her mood while living there. The staff were also lovely with my sister who has learning disabilities and came to visit mam several times a week. Unfortunately mam recently succumbed to old age frailty - I can't praise or thank the staff enough for the consideration, care and respect my mam was given in her final days. I would not hesitate to recommend St Mary's.

The staff are 100% caring and one male nurse, Anthony Atkinson, saved mam's life twice on the 27th October 2014. She choked on a piece of toast in the morning, she had turned blue and Anthony cleared her airways and dislodged the toast. On the evening she was eating scrambled egg the nurse was feeding her when the same thing happened; he cleared her airways again saving her life.
