The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Cliftonville Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cliftonville Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.878 for Cliftonville Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (212 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 238 Ratings = 4.878

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.755 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cliftonville Care Home is based on 16 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 21.2 positive Reviews (106 registered beds ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 21.2 Target = 0.755

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Visited different care homes trying to decide which would be best for my mother, who had dementia. We decided on Cliftonville, which proved 100% to be the correct choice. All the staff were friendly, helpful, going beyond expectation. On the night Mum was expected to pass away, staff came to say goodbye,asked night team to call if she passed away. These are such lovely caring staff who were the same whatever time of day you turned up. They are there for the whole family and not just the family member. If you need a home, this is the one to use. Great thanks to all the staff.

My wife has been on the Memory ward for seven weeks. When we started looking at Care Homes we were told by a number of people to never expect a perfect place. Well, seven weeks on and so far they are wrong. Cliftonville could not be better in any way. The care, dedication and love all the staff give is just wonderful. They also extend that love and support to us as a family. There are also three "Pink Ladies", the Activity Team. They provide plenty of different events and are a constant joy and pleasure to see in action.
It is a lovely home, but so much more, as it is a home filled with love and care. As a family, we can never thank the staff enough for all they are doing for my wife. My daughter and I, who visit most days, are totally satisfied that she is in such safe caring hands and so we have no worries that she isn't receiving the very best care she could get.

Since my mother arrived at Cliftonville Care Home in March 2015, the staff have always looked after her well. She is completely immobile and has to be hoisted to the bathroom etc. but staff always deal with her promptly when required. The activity team are excellent with her and my mother is happy with everything.

My uncle was looked after so well during his stay. The staff were so kind and caring. Nothing was too much to make my uncles stay in his words "The most wonderful week". I can't thank the manager and his staff enough. Thank you.

Just had our first review. We were informed of my mum's progress. We discussed her care needs and addressed any issues if any. Her medications were also discussed and the manager suggested a medication that mum could be given, which would help her diagnosis.
My mum's team leader was also pleasant and we discussed what I would like for my mum, her care leader and her staff she works with are extremely helpful, caring and always implement anything I request. The ladies in"pink" are fantastic, mum loves all the activities and at least has something to discuss with us when we visit her!

My father spent the last few years of his life at Cliftonville Care Home and I cannot praise the staff enough. Everyone, including the admin staff were so considerate. My father was treated with dignity and genuine kindness by the cares for whom nothing seemed to be too much. I was touched by the gentleness at the end of his life and the way they treated not only him, but the caring way they treated me too.

I think this is an excellent care home in every way. Having the use of the beautiful sheltered garden is a great bonus. The staff are all kind and caring. The rooms and facilities are of an excellent standard maybe the alternative to sandwiches at tea time could be of a softer consistency for those who can't eat crusty crunchy food.

My 96-year-old father has been with Cliftonville Care Home since May 2016 after spending 8 weeks in the nearby adjacent Hospital having a Pacemaker fitted! Since being at the home and despite his dementia and other ailments he has received the most amazing personal care and attention as and when needed and his general health has gradually improved despite age and mood swings etc. The staff are just superb and so patient and caring and so too are the management including the wonderful home manager. The home is like the Ritz if not better, the food top rate and cooked on site and the grounds/gardens a pleasure to walk in.

I brought my father to 'Cliftonville Care Home' having been to other good care homes before. I was very impressed by the professional and caring way the assessment was carried out at home by the manager and deputy manager. My father has Alzheimer's Dementia and started off on the residential floor where he was treated with respect and dignity. The staff make a great effort to get to know each resident individually, family background, life story, hobbies etc. He has now moved to the nursing floor where he is extremely well looked after. My mother has recently become a resident here and there are activities organised every day which she is encouraged to take part in. The whole home is extremely clean and fresh. The rooms are all well-furnished catering for all residents.

We care for Dad at home and wanted him to have a break some time away to enjoy company of others and some activities he would enjoy. Cliftonville exceeded our expectations in all areas of care and support of my father in law. The staff are professional and the most caring individuals, they have such capacity to manage by providing love and support and are aware of each individuals needs with the capacity to manage one to one needs. The quality of care from the food served, the activities and relaxation has been a huge benefit to Dad he may not remember what he did or even ate but I am sure he will remember how all the staff at Cliftonville Care Northampton made him feel. Thank you eternally grateful

My aunt, of which I have a lasting power of attouney, could no longer look after herself properly and I secured a place at The Cliftonville Care Home in Northampton.
Now after only three months my aunt looks happy and healthy - even putting on much needed weight. I am very pleased with the quality of care my aunt is receiving on a daily basis. This move has almost certainly extended her life.

My mother arrived at Cliftonville after spending 14 weeks in hospital. She was very frail, within a week the difference in her was unbelievable. The care given at Cliftonville is first class, she is now a permanent resident there and enjoying taking part in all the activities that are on offer, also she is able to have her hair done weekly as a salon is on site. Mum's actual words were "If I cannot go home to live this is the next best place". I would definitely recommend Cliftonville to anyone looking for a home for their parents or family member.

Helpful, caring and adaptable, much appreciated by my cousin. He liked the food was well looked after, and the staff were very caring. We were able to take him out whenever he wanted and we were able to arrange the home to take him to the opera when we were away. His room was always tidy and he was always clean. He himself was very happy there.

My sister went into Cliftonville Care Home on the 1st of September 2015. In the short period of time that my sister was there she was treated with the utmost respect and care while she was there. As her family it took so much pressure off us, and every time we visited we were treated like family so nice. Always a welcome smile and you can help yourself to drinks available. We have certainly mentioned the care home to others.

My mother stayed here recently for respite care and it was a positive experience for all our family. The care she received was of the highest quality, giving my family, and especially my father, peace of mind during her recovery. The support from the nursing staff was caring and respectful and nothing was too much trouble. They were attentive and always had time to explain what was happening. She had care from their in-house GP and her medication was tailored to her needs. The home itself is beautiful to look at and was immaculate at all times. The food was freshly prepared and of the highest quality, and there were activities that she could join in with if she wanted to. It made a difficult time easier, knowing she was so well cared for. I can't thank them enough

My mother has been in Northampton NHS Hospital since 17th August 2015, having survived viral encephalitis. Mum was transferred to Cliftonville on October 13th, very ill, depressed and unresponsive. The staff on the 3rd floor have been outstanding. Mum is now smiling, laughing and very alert and responsive. The deputy manager has been so kind extremely understanding and knowledgeable in helping us to cope with our dear mum. Everyone from the receptionist, housekeeping staff, nurses and doctors have treated us as a family with respect and kindness and also fun. Mum, I am pleased to say is now a resident. How fortunate are we all. Thank you.

My mother stayed for some respite recently and I have to say that the care and attention she received from the staff was outstanding. My father, as a visitor and main carer, was extremely happy with her care during her stay which gave him peace of mind whilst they were apart. The care staff on the residential floor deserve the biggest thanks, and the GP service Cliftonville provided was excellent in adjusting medication and explaining the reasons fully. All the staff were amazing right through from reception assisting with visitor menu choices to housekeeping and catering staff introducing themselves whilst going about their daily duties. Nothing was too much for anyone, so well done and thank you very much.
