This Review Score of 9.682 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.682 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 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 9.682 for Allingham House Care Centre is based on 56 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 4.682 for Allingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (466 Excellents x 5) + (185 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 664 Ratings = 4.682

    • 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 Allingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows:

      1. 56 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 56 Positive Reviews = 5.600 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (56 Positive Reviews ÷ 86 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.302 (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).

My mother received the best of care at Allingham House until her recent death. She had been a resident for 3 1/2 years and it truly was her home surrounded by people who looked after her with dignity, care, professionalism and friendship. There are too many people I would like to thank for making by mum's final years enjoyable, sociable and fun.

Only criticism is not enough parking spaces when visiting.

Allingham is a well-run home. The staff, without exception, are all wonderful. They are all very caring and sensitive to each individual's needs. The facilities at Allingham are good, with regular new introductions. For me, the great atmosphere created at the home is down to the activities staff. They create fresh activities and trips out for residents. I know my Mum benefits a lot from their hard work.

My mother left the hospital, considered by doctors to be at "end of life" and transferred to Allingham House Care Centre. Within a few weeks, she was able to sit in a wheelchair, feed herself and interact fully with residents and carers. I put this huge improvement in my mother's condition entirely down to the management and staff at Allingham House. If she had stayed in the hospital I have no doubt that she would no longer be with us.

The carers have been so attentive, caring, sensitive understanding and empathetic. My father is devastated by the loss of his wife of 67 years; the staff at the home could not have been more kind. My father is sometimes in denial, the staff handle him with the skill of leading psychologists. I have words of praise, I cannot fault them.

We are very happy with the home. Mums condition and general well-being has improved significantly since she came here. Although there are still some lows (tears) she seems generally happy, and we have very good moments too.
All in all a very good move for my mother

My husband has been a resident in this home for the past 6 months and I can only praise the quality of care that he has received. My husband seems very content most of the time, but even when he is unsettled, they are able to settle him down. I have no problem with any of the care he receives.

The staff at Allingham House are lovely and caring, they work hard to give care to the residents. It would be great if there could be more one-to-one interaction with residents: from staff to resident. The food provided is good, quick and fresh. My mum enjoys the meals. The staff who provide my mum's care are gentle with her and patient which is reassuring and comforting. The staff who provide activities are excellent, they have a kind and fun approach with the residents and do a brilliant job.

My dad has been in Allingham House now for 6+ weeks. He misses being in his own home very much, as he misses mum, who was admitted to hospital shortly after the move to Allingham.
Dad thinks he is living in a hotel! He tells me that the food is good (we eat with him sometimes and confirm that) and the staff are caring, warm, and friendly. The place always smells clean and fresh, and individual needs are dealt with, with care and consideration. The staff work hard and long hours - but always with a smile. We thank them all - every day.

My husband moved into Allingham House four months ago suffering from advanced Alzheimer's disease. He has a very pleasant room overlooking a charming well-maintained garden which the residents are encouraged to use for socialising and activities whenever the weather is suitable. One example, a falconer with his birds of prey. The atmosphere as soon as you enter the lobby is very friendly, staff, residents and their relations all talking and helping you to settle into the life of the home. The care and support from all the staff, from top to bottom, has been excellent and the residents are at all times treated with dignity and gentleness. The wishes fo the residents are listened to and acted on in a very caring and sympathetic manner. The quality of the equipment used is excellent and is available for the use of the residents when required, such as a special bed to prevent him from falling and a special chair which could be adjusted to his measurements which he finds very comfortable. All his food has to be pureed but it is presented as well as possible and it is enjoyed by my husband. Security has a high priority even in hot weather when windows are open, there is always a responsible person in the room. Unfortunately, my husband has now passed away but the care during the final days could not have been better. Every member of staff was so kind, even making sure that I was alright. I have no regrets in choosing Allingham House as a suitable home for my husband.

Allingham House and all the staff have been wonderful in the 3 years our mother lived here and died peacefully. We cannot say enough about the professionalism, care, compassion and time. They have been like an extended family, especially as mum became terminal. Catering, care staff, nurses, receptionists, all of the were so supportive and cared for mam in every way. We cannot thank them enough. The manager, deputy manager and nursing staff were excellent. Please pass on our thanks to the company and all staff on the ground floor.

There aren't enough works to express the admiration and respect I feel for everyone at Allingham House. I trust and love you all. If everyone had this wonderful love given to them in other care homes there would be dignity, happiness and a healthier community.
As a very caring and loving daughter who has to live in the USA, I am honoured to know you all, and to know that my precious mother is as loved by you all.
Thank you. All my love and respect.

Lovely home, residents well cared for by carers. Nurses not as good as carers though. Communication channels could be better but are improving. Activities are excellent. Lovely in house hairdresser who treats the residents with wonderful respect and care. Decor and cleanliness is lovely. Food is fresh and presented beautifully with lots of choice carers always try to dress the residents nicely in coordinating outfits.

The staff try very hard to care for the patients. Sometimes communication between staff leaves a bit to be desired, but on the whole they try their best. I appreciate caring is a vocation, and requires a lot of patience. Every case is different and people require different levels of care. It is hard for someone who is very aware to integrate with people who have had dementia so it can be a bit lonely for them. Obviously I have to be realistic about the time each member of staff can spend with each person. I find the carer outstanding with her caring and professional attitude.

My mother has just passed away in Allingham House after having been here for over three years. I cannot fault the care and dedication of all the staff (without exception) from directors to hospitality and cleaning staff. The devotion and tenderness the carers showed to mum especially at the end is something I will not forget. Thank you very much.

Dads nursing care at Allingham House has been of the highest standard in the 15 months he has been a resident. Dementia can be lonely road to walk, but at all times when I have visited the caring and well trained staff have demonstrated the highest professional standards. Residents are treated with dignity and patience. I am satisfied that dad cannot be better looked after. He has a quality of life, is well fed, warm and washed and shaved every day. Its a basic need but the staff do go the extra mile and it shows. Thank you doesn't seem enough.

For 6 months my husband was a resident due to advanced dementia. At all time he was cared for and always with exceptional love and attention. When he passed away, they were wonderful.

My mother has been a resident at Allingham House since March 2014. At outset it was a very difficult time because my mother was unsettled in her condition and the change was a lot for her to manage. Her safety was paramount to the family and the staff at Allingham were above and beyond supportive. Their professionalism and attention to detail as well as duty of care shone. They not only helped my mother through a very difficult just six months. They instilled confidence in us. I for one am extremely grateful. My mother is now filled with purpose and she is no longer lives with fear.

I live abroad and visit my mother every few months. I am a nurse - very critical. Allingham House where my mother lives. the care is always of a very high standard. The manager is fantastic all my queries are always dealt with in a professional prompt way. I feel I have an "address". The laundry, dinning room and menu and the activities are excellent. My mother is always beautifully groomed and dressed. The carers are absolutely the best. Never thought I'd praise a home this way.

My father, aged 99, is very happy at the home. Social activities have greatly improved since the change of ownership. The cleanliness of the laundry needs addressing. The home has its own machines and dryers now but the lady and her colleague need help. They have the linen to launder also, too much for 2 people!

My mother has been well looked after since she arrived. There have been few problems. Occasionally, her clothing has not been checked for missing buttons etc. She is extremely deaf and her hearing aid batteries are not always checked and changed.

I would recommend the above care home as I have found the management very friendly, cooperative and always ready to listen to any concerns and problems etc. I have also witnessed friendliness and helpfulness from all the staff, including the carers, hospitality, maintenance and housekeeping in the way they are all so kind and supportive of my mother. I have developed friendships and a good rapport with many of them. Overall I am very happy and feel that when my mother is not in my presence I know she is in safe and caring hands. Thank you very much.

My sister has been here nearly 3 years, although there have been changes of staff, the care has not suffered and continues to be excellent. If ever my sister needs extra medical care I am informed immediately. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

I think the home offers very good medical care. The food and medical sides are well taken care of. There should be more care staff out on the floor attending to the needs of the residents instead of heads down and filing in forms.

My parents became residents as a couple nearly 3 years ago. My mother needed full nursing care towards the end of her life and throughout she was treated with kindness, gentle good humour and with complete regard for her dignity. The staff at Allingham House care for their residents without role 'demarcation', and this friendly and caring ethos is evident at all times, without exception; be they cleaning staff, catering staff [hospitality], carers, nurses or activity facilitators: "pinkies" as Mum called them. It is of great comfort in my Father's bereavement, to be surrounded by such intimate awareness and empathy.

The quality of care is very good and the food is especially good. The care home is let down by its design and layout and location so close to a busy railway/tram line. Apart from this. would recommend.

My mother has dementia and has been at Allingham House since February 2015. Prior to this she lived in a flat and had a carer attending 3 times a day. She became very angry and was reticent to venture out of her room. She became a recluse.
At Allingham she now sits in the lounge daily and enjoys the company of others and all the entertainment. The staff are very diligent, caring and have the ability to bring out the best in each and everyone no matter what their disabilities are. My mother is now happy and contented living in the best environment which provides the highest quality of life which she deserves.
