    The Review Score of 8.884 for Valley View is based on 8 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 4.813 for Valley View is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.813

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 4.071 for Valley View is calculated as follows:

      1. 8 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 8 Positive Reviews = 0.800

      3. (8 Positive Reviews ÷ 59 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.271

My mother moved into valley view care home in February 2015. After a short initial period when she was very reluctant to leave her room, she has now settled in and spends most of each day in the lounge/dining area. The staff were very patient with her during this time. We have no complaints to make regarding the home and the staff. My mother is 90 years old.

Many thanks for your kind words, our staff work very hard and it's great that they are appreciated.

Valley View care home provides a homely environment with caring staff who take time to listen to any residents particular needs. The food and choices are excellent and all rooms kept clean and tidy. Any special dietary requirements are catered for and there are plenty of activities to keep residents entertained. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

Thanks for your Kind words, they are much appreciated by all the staff team !

My mother has Alzheimers and is not consistent in her behaviour or mood, which means she can be very challenging on some days which is why we can no longer meet her needs at home. Valley View have been amazing in working with nurses, social workers and doctors to help her to be as stable and happy as possible. I am aware that Valley View have recently has a CQC report that does not show them in the light that they would like, but I can not praise the new management team enough and would advise anyone to come and talk to the staff and make their own mind up.

This was a wonderful place for our mother to spend her last few months. Overall standards of the home were excellent. The care and individual attention received by her were really good and she was treated with dignity, especially brilliant was the management of the home. Sue Keith the manager was accessible, attentive and appeared to be most competent at all levels of management. systems seemed mature and monitored and the home was secure and safe. Communication was good and residents were being involved and given a say. Mum's room and facilities were good and included equipment to suit her needs. Mum was allowed to adapt her room so it was a home from home. She was allowed to be independent but given opportunity to change if she wished. We were welcomed as relatives. The home set up a room for mum's 98th Birthday party. care, monitoring and response appeared appropriate.

This was a wonderful care home for my mother from the first day she went there. She was made to feel welcome and mum said she was treated like the queen. She was given every opportunity to join activities or respected if she just wanted to stay in her room. Staff were always cheerful, caring and encouraging. More than that they always offered me a cup of tea when I arrived having had a 2 hour drive. What lovely people, especially the person running the home, Sue thank you so much.

From first impressions to months of experience with three elderly family residents at this bright and welcoming care home. I can honestly say this is the best run home I have seen. All of the staff without exception from the managers, senior carers, carers, domestic, chefs, laundry staff to the entertainment co-ordinator have shown exceptional approachability, kindness and efficiency in a clean fresh and spacious environment.
