Reviews

9.7 Pratt House has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.659)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pratt House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 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 4.797 for Pratt House is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.797

  • 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 4.862 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pratt House is based on 5 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target = 0.862

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

Over the 5 months of my sister's residence in Pratt House, we have been very satisfied and pleased with all aspects of the care and support she has receives from each member of staff. The manager, in spite of the many calls on his time, is always available and the staff have been considerate of my sister's needs. This was always going to be a huge challenge for her as she moved from the family home where she had lived for 75 years to living in a single room. The staff were aware of this and could not have been more considerate.

Both my mother and my father were in the Pratt House care home in Amersham. My father suffered from dementia, my mother didn't but was frail. Not only did my parents think that the home was a brilliant place to be (and neither wanted to go into a home) but my own impression was of a home that really cared about the people there and always did everything within their power to make the residents happy and comfortable. All the staff, including the manager and the assistant manager, are exceptional and the care they deliver outstanding. This is a care home that really does care. The rooms, all with en-suite, are very good. It is though the staff who really make this place the outstanding place it is. When it became necessary to put my parents into a home I was nervous ..................... the manager and his Pratt House staff proved how good a care home can be .................... and this one is exceptionally good!

My Mother was a resident at Pratt House in Amersham from July last year until her death in May of this. She was a very independent woman and did not take to the move into a home easily but the welcome she received on moving in was noteworthy. The staff were very understanding and helpful.
This applied not only to the management and care staff but included the domestic and catering staff who went out of their way to make her and us when we visited to feel at home. Sadly the dementia onset was rapid and for too long my Mother wasn't the easiest of residents but that didn't dent the compassion or care showed by the staff.

My mother resided in Pratt House for ten months. She was not an easy resident, at first because she was reluctant to go into a care home, and latterly as her dementia advanced. She was always treated with respect, affection, and unfailing good humour. She also benefited from care of a high standard, from the early days to end of life.

Pratt House offers an attractive environment, with a lovely garden and endearing proximity to the Chesham tube line. The staff are friendly and considerate, and invariably cheerful. There is an appealing informality about the place, and its management, which is accessible but not intrusive. It was a pleasant and friendly place to visit.

Ultimately, a care home must be judged on its standard of care, and on this count Pratt House was outstanding. We are deeply appreciative of all the efforts made by the staff there.

I just wanted to write and say a massive thank you to all your staff that looked after my grandparents.
Unfortunately, they were only with you about 6 weeks, but your staff made their stay and for the family visiting so welcoming and caring.
My grandparents also kept saying how good the food was - proper home cooked tasty food.

I could phone the home at any time day or night and would always have a caring, honest voice at the end of the phone. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

The home manager is wonderful! So helpful, empathetic and friendly - a true asset to the home.

Once again - please pass on a massive thank you to all the staff for the wonderful work you all do - showing true compassion to all their residents.
