    • 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 4.877 for Glais House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 162 Ratings = 4.877

      • 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 4.622 for Glais House Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 14 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 14 Positive Reviews = 1.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (14 Positive Reviews ÷ 45 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.622

*The Average Rating only uses ratings from the 11 reviews. Ratings from the 3 recommendations are not used for the Average Rating as the rating options were limited to Excellent, Good and Satisfactory.

Glais House has looked after my mother exceptionally well. I have nothing but praise for the home and quality of staff that work there.

The staff seem genuinely fond of my mother, and take a great deal of trouble to make sure she is happy and understands things - she is blind and deaf as well as having dementia so this is not easy. For example, if she wakes frightened in the night after a bad dream or delusion, they will take her to sleep in the lounge on a recliner where there are people around and she feels safe.

The staff are friendly, caring and very hard-working. The managers are continually improving the home and care arrangements, for example they are meeting with an RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) project manager to look at improvements for people with sight loss. I am certain my mother is safe and as happy as she can be and has the best care and medical support.

Her room, the communal areas and the food are also excellent and well suited to the needs of the residents.

My mother is always treated with tender loving care preserve her dignity. They talk to her and not at her despite her deafness. They tell her what they are going to do before they do it e.g bath her or take her to the toilet. She is always clean, never smells and is dressed nicely, she is well fed, her food and fluid intake is monitored and recorded. Her safety is paramount. She has a beautiful en-suite room that is always clean and tidy. The staff keep me informed of anything relating to my mother e.g health and doctors.

If you want the best care for your loved one look no further. The quality of care and empathy provided by the manager and the staff is exceptional. Mum only spent six months in the care of Glais but we could not fault the standards and love that was given to her in that time. A huge thank you to all the staff for all the support they gave to mum and the family. Thoroughly recommended without reservation.

Although my mother was in Glais House only a couple of months she received the best care possible but friendly approachable manner. We never saw or heard a resident reprimanded or abused in any way. During my mums last few hours she was given loving care and her dignity respected. We were supported in the same way. I would recommend this care home to anyone.

Within the constraints of the current policies of U.K. funding for the elderly, this is perhaps as near as damn it to the perfect care/nursing home in my opinion. I think that it would be easy to pick holes but they all would seem trite, as on the whole this is a well managed, dignified retirement/nursing home. The staff are all caring, well mannered and friendly. The rooms are faultless and the location is fantastic.

Having visited many care homes during my work, this by far is the cleanest home with the most approachable staff and management. Nothing is too much trouble. My mum has been here for a year and it has been a great weight off my shoulders knowing she is in such a safe and homely environment.

Very friendly, caring staff. Mum has settled well, and her well being is higher than it was in her own home over recent years. Sometimes I feel I'm 'nagging' to get particular things done and it's not always easy to contact someone with influence to change or arrange things. The home was very supportive about bringing her to a family wedding.

We have recently transferred my grandfather from another nursing home as the standard of care was very poor in the previous home. It was a very difficult decision to make to move him as due to his dementia he is often confused, we were concerned that he may get worse if we moved him. Since moving him he actually appears to be much happier, more alert and has settled in very well. The staff at Glais House are constantly interacting with him and getting him to take part in activities, and the freshly cooked food is going down a treat as this is the first thing he will comment on when asked if he likes it at Glais. The management & nursing team are great, very supportive and always keeping us as a family up to date with any changes and also involving us with his care planning. The care staff are always promoting independence and encouraging him to do tasks himself, at the same time making sure he is well kept. The housekeeping team are fantastic they keep the home clean, tidy and smelling fresh!! As a family we have no doubt that we have made the right decision and would definitely recommend the home to others.
