Reviews

9.2 Glendale has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.162)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Glendale is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Glendale in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.162 for Glendale is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (66 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 105 Ratings = 4.162

  • 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 Glendale is based on 8 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 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.

A warm welcome to a safe, secure home. Good food, prompt and competent attention by friendly staff. I enjoyed informal conversation with some residents and the church service.

My mother stayed for 11 nights as respite, as we were going away. She enjoyed her stay and said the food and staff were very good. A couple of items of clothing "went missing" but we were contacted to say they had been found.

House and surroundings are clean and tidy, neat garden, management and senior staff are all friendly and approachable. All carers were friendly and helpful, always seem busy with very little time to chat to residents.

Two-course meals were excellent - compliments to the chefs. Beverages are available at any time.

A resident unlatched my bedroom door twice in the early hours of the morning, which was rather disconcerting!

Staff are efficient and pleasant and treat the residents well. The home is clean, laundry is well done, meals are good, with fruit and drinks always available. Services such as manicures, hairdressing, chiropody are arranged when required, and there is a pleasant atmosphere about the place. As a visitor, even when arriving with no notice, you are made to feel welcome.

The only is the staff turn over.

On the whole, it has been a good experience. The day to day staff are good and caring. Only criticism would be in dealings with fee increases. The staff are very kind and caring. When my mother first went there, there seemed to be lots of activities, with low-level activities. This has deteriorated recently which we have been told is due to cutbacks.

Tina Ali, Provider at Glendale responded to this review on 21 Jul 2017:

Thank you for your recent review. In response to your comments, I would like to say that we have not increased the fees for over a year now, and our rates are very competitive compared to other homes in the area. We have recently upgraded our communal areas in the existing house and a substantial extension has been built to the rear of the property. We have not compromised the standard of care we provide to our residents, but we have recently looked towards retraining and replacing some of our current staff so that we can resume our previous activity schedule.

From personal experience, I have found the home to be just that, a home from home.
Having said that, it would not be that without the best staff.
Staff need to be valued and looked after like the residents, otherwise, we would not have good homes to look after our loved ones.

Glendale Residential Care home is a small well run facility which has benefited from a recent addition of an extra six bedrooms. Staff are courteous and caring in what is a challenging situation. Our observations during the frequent visits we have made suggest that the care given to the residents is very good.
