Review Score: 9.7 (9.652)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Shire Hall Care Home is based on 42 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.652 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.795 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.857 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 9.652 for Shire Hall Care Home is based on 42 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 4.795 for Shire Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (416 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (21 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 497 Ratings = 4.795

    • 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 4.857 for Shire Hall Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 42 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 42 Positive Reviews = 4.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (42 Positive Reviews ÷ 98 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.857

  • 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 friendly, clean, caring atmosphere were what attracted me to this home, but I am most impressed by the range of activities, group and one to one offered to my step-mum. Time has been taken to get to know her personally, her likes and dislikes, and this has been shown in the range and quality of activities she is included in. Staff on the floor, and reception are friendly, helpful and respectful and I am really pleased at how well my step-mum has settled her, thank you.

After knowingly inspected many residential homes, this home ticked all the boxes and my brother and I are very happy. It is clean and the decor is very nicely finished. The food is excellent and plentiful. My mother is looked after with care and patience, at the slightest hint of her not feeling well a doctor is called. The best thing of all is that all the carers treat mum as if she is their own mother. Can't talk highly enough of this home & its workers.

Dad has been here for five weeks and is already very happily settled. He favours one carer and have changed the carers name for him. Though I must add I note he likes all the staff, though short staffed at times.

From the first day, all staff from receptionists onwards have been so friendly and polite as if we'd med years ago. Floor two staff have gone over and above to find dad's likes and dislikes and very attentive at all times to his needs.

I am amazed and grateful he has settled so fast enabling me to not visit on occasions without any worry know I will be informed even letting dad ring me on a day that he was asking for me.

Choosing a care home involved looking at many homes to best suit my father-in-laws needs. My self and my wife are very happy with the care he is given at Shire Hall. He is well cared for and happy.

I have found the staff to be caring, dedicated and friendly and always happy to address any concerns relating to my mum's care. Overall I am satisfied with the service provided and would recommend Shire Hall to others.

I would very happily recommend this care home for all needs. Both mum and dad have been in their care with different needs. Mum has sadly passed away but the care she received in her time here and in particular her last few very ill days was exemplary. The support was there for us too. Dad is very happy and contented. If his care was not excellent he would not be so content. All staff are excellent, professional and very caring.

We are happy to have secured residence care for dad at Shire Hall. The facilities are excellent and well maintained and the care and consideration provided by the team cannot be faulted.

Care & Dignity

My mother moved here a year ago from another home where her care consisted of feeding her & then leaving her in front of the TV in her room. Since moving here the TV in her room has not been on!! She always wants to be in the day room where she is, encouraged to participate when she can. The care extended to her, and to the other residents many of whom have significant wandering issues is wonderful.

When we take her out she is always well prepared and when we come back everyone takes am interest. I would particularly pick out the reception staff, Deena and her team on Century Quay
Many Many thanks

I visited my mother this morning and walked in on the Rick James Concert. He was brilliant; he sang all the old songs and totally engaged with the residents. He caught their attention by looking straight at them, which made them smile. Then, he encouraged them to come and dance out the front. I have not seen my mother so animated; she even clapped! Sammy, who has a terrific rapport with my mother and can persuade her to do things that I cannot get her to do, danced with my mother and kept her smiling. Sonia was her usual effervescent self; she is such a treasure, bringing joy wherever she goes.

When they played "Que sera, sera", a song which my mother used to sing to me when I was young, I was overwhelmed with sadness and left the room to stop my mother seeing me cry. I went to the lounge and sobbed, bemoaning the fact that my mother has Alzheimer's. One of the residents asked if I was alright and wondered if there was anything she could do to help. When I moved to the office as I did not want to upset the residents, Deena immediately comforted me and offered a drink.

Shire Hall is such a wonderful home; the carers are so loving to all the residents and their relatives. I count my blessings every time I think of my mother in such kind hands. There are so many activities to entertain them. Jeanie is one of my favourites with her jokes and exercises.
