Reviews

9.7 Old School House has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.667)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Old School House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Old School House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.667 for Old School House is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.667

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Old School House is based on 7 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 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 2.4 Target Reached = 1

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

I can feel confident that the staff are looking after my mother. She is safe and well cared for.
My mum is not a good eater due to her dementia but the home's cook will try different things to try to encourage her to eat.

The Old School House is a small care home providing accommodation for up to 12 people. The home is very welcoming and the staff are diligent and professional.
My Mother-in-Law is in her 90's, suffers from age related dementia and has been at the home for about 9 months.
She is treated with dignity and compassion by the staff and I am kept fully informed of her welfare and requirements.
There are regular planned activities in which the residents are encouraged to participate and one to one interaction with the more frail members or those not wishing to join in. The staff are fully aware of the individual personalities and requirements of the residents and are able to tailor the support accordingly.
The meals that I have witnessed have been freshly cooked and appetising and there is always a choice of dishes.
Based on my observations, I would have no reservations in recommending the Old School House to my friends and family.

My mother was becoming more and more introverted and depressed having lived alone following the passing of my father, and after breaking her hip, she did not want to live alone. The Old School House is within 300 yards of my house, the owner and staff are so wonderful and caring and have given Mum a new lease of life.

My mother was a resident at Old School House from late December 2014 until April 2017.
The home is small, with only 10 or 11 residents and an excellent staff to resident ratio, quite often there will be 4 or 5 staff on duty.
The staff are well trained and unfailingly kind, considerate and caring, every resident is treated as an individual and valued.
The activities organiser is in the home most afternoons and has a wonderful empathic personality.
The rooms vary in size but all are well equipped and maintained. The food is varied and freshly cooked each day.
The only disadvantage is perhaps the small size of the premises, with only on common room and dining room, but there is also a garden area for summer use.

The Old School House provides a wonderful, caring service to my 99-year-old father in law.
They are very diligent in all aspects of his care and provide a lovely, homely atmosphere.
There is a daily entertainment service which is very inclusive and encourages all the residents to join in.
Only having 11 residents is a real bonus.
