    The Review Score of 9.320 for Allingham House Care Centre is based on 29 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 4.646 for Allingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (231 Excellents x 5) + (106 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 345 Ratings = 4.646

    • 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 4.674 for Allingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows:

      1. 29 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 29 Positive Reviews = 2.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (29 Positive Reviews ÷ 86 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.674

  • 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).

  • 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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
