Reviews

8.4 Stanecroft has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.361)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Stanecroft is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Stanecroft 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 4.561 for Stanecroft is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.561

  • 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 3.8 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Stanecroft 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.300

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

My mother has been a resident of Stanecroft for the last three years and has been very happy here. The building itself is bright and airy and all the staff that I've met over the years have been kind and caring. Sometimes there have been staff shortages but I think this is a reflection of both the area and the nature of the work which is hard. Initially, I was concerned about a lack of activities but there is now a full programme of events on offer.

In recent years, with dementia, my wife has become anxious and apprehensive about attending any meeting group.
However, since the first welcoming visit to The Oaks Day Club, she has been happy to go and now attends regularly, twice a week.
The staff are professional, supportive, sympathetic and above all, extremely kind. Everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
I am extremely grateful for the care and attention which my wife has received and the general interaction with others has been invaluable for her.

Overall we have been very happy with the care given. We have especially appreciated the good communication from the management and the individual attention given to the family- we didn't feel like a process but very welcome. Hospital transport was provided when needed. A few recommendations-
The lack of continuity in the care staff- although they were all very helpful.
The very low toilets and armchairs were a challenge for a tall man.
Nothing was provided for stimulation other than a small television that very few chairs actually faced.
We are really thankful that this respite place was provided at such short notice so close to home.

Samantha Debenham, Marketing Support Administrator at Stanecroft responded to this review on 22 Sep 2016:

Thank you very much for your feedback - I’m extremely pleased to hear your positive comments. I am particularly happy about your comments and ratings around the quality of care, although I understand you have some concerns regarding continuity of the care team. We do aim for continuity of care and have key colleagues allocated to each suite – however, to cover annual leave in the home we do at times rotate team members to ensure high levels of care across the home and maintain team levels.
In terms of the lounge we do have some other communal areas, including within the day club, which offer some additional areas to relax, take part in activities, and spend time with loved ones. We would be very happy to welcome you back should you have a need in the future for care and I do realise on this occasion you were staying with us as part of a respite requirement at short notice, should you have a need to stay with us again, we can certainly arrange a raised chair and toilet seat for you.

A friend was admitted at the end of January for dementia care. The staff were very caring and understanding of her condition and she settled in well to this lovely home particularity enjoying the gardens, I was particularly impressed with.
The health assistants who dealt with her continued incontinence with humour and understanding, also helping her to eat and drink. I cannot speak highly enough of this care home and would hope to go here myself if it became necessary. The manager is really excellent and very kind to all the residents.

Stanecroft is always clean, light, bright and cheerful with welcoming touches of seasonally-changing pictures and decorations to keep residents stimulated.
The gardens are attractive, well-maintained and securely accessible to residents.
Food is varied and plentiful and can be tailored to accommodate individual needs.
Personal care is good and residents are encouraged to have clean clothes on every day. There have been some recent delays with laundry not being returned in a timely way but this should be rectified with the new washing machine.
The staff are caring and friendly - they establish a good rapport with residents and give a warm welcome to visitors.
Activities for residents have been much improved in the last three months and include visiting entertainers.
Other visiting services include GP, hairdresser, chiropodist, dentist and optician.
In summary, I am amazed at what Stanecroft achieves, especially in the current financially-constrained environment.

Right from the beginning when mum attended the day centre, before becoming a resident, she was treated with the utmost care. The staff never forgot mum's personality and always encouraged her to be herself. Later, as her health deteriorated, and she became a resident. They continued to care for her showing great compassion and professionalism. Allowing mum to keep her dignity. Mum's last few days could not have been more peaceful. We are forever grateful to the true wonderful.

I have visited the care home and a regular basis for the last 4 years, they have always made me very welcome. The care home always looks clean and tidy, as do all the residents. I have often visited when activities are taking place and have been most impressed with how they encourage the resident to join in. When doctors etc have been to visit my relation I have always been informed of any change.

Mum was admitted for respite care due to my father undergoing back surgery. The staff were ready to receive us, friendly and homely, and were very efficient at getting mum settled.
She has a room which though a little dated in décor, has a state-of-the-art bed, and a little wash area. A commode was provided as there was no toilet in the room. Everything was spotless throughout her 8 days stay. I wouldn't hesitate to use this facility again. Lovely staff.
