Rayners has been purposely developed to suit older people's care needs and makes the most of a skilled and friendly team in order to achieve customer satisfaction. Being family owned and managed, the experienced care team is headed by Director of Care/Matron, Jeanne Matthews, who has over 35 years' experience in caring for the elderly.

Self-contained luxury 'Assisted Living Apartments' have been added within the grounds of Rayners. These offer emergency 24-hour support for those who require the reassurance, security and back up of a care home, without having to enter a communal living setting.

They encourage suggestions from residents/relatives relating to the high-class service they offer and have a 'Suggestion Box' on Reception for this purpose.

Reviews

8.7 Rayners has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.666)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Rayners 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rayners in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.833 for Rayners is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rayners is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.333

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

The most enticing thing about the quality of the service here is it's friendliness.

My mother has been at Rayners since 13th May 2017. The level of care given has been superb and we've seen a marked improvement in her health since her multiple strokes in March which were followed by a stay in hospital. My father suffered a number of UTIs leading up to early April and had been admitted to hospital before eventually ending up in a different care home. We moved my father into Rayners to be with my mother on 1st January 2018. He also appears to be improving, albeit slowly. Rayners, in our opinion, has been exceptional.

My father was a resident at Rayners for over three years. He was very happy after his initial settling in period. I was always impressed with the level of care and genuine affection shown by all the staff and management. The quality of food is excellent and plentiful as required. The speciality days or evenings were of particular note and required a huge effort by everyone. I always found Rayners clean and the staff readily and cheerfully responsive to residents needs.

My late dad was treated with dignity and respect. Dementia had made him rather challenging to care for. However, I know they did a wonderful job in the few years he was resident.
I thank them for making a difficult time easier for all concerned.

My mother was a resident for 15 months until her death in August 2016. Throughout this period the care she received was exemplary. There were always members of staff on hand and nothing was ever a problem or trouble. The home was always clean and tidy and the food excellent. All the residents were encouraged to drink regularly and to take part in the activities provided. During my mother's final few days we- her family- were welcomed at all times of the day and night and looked after well with kindness and compassion. I cannot praise the staff at Rayners highly enough. Thank you all!!
