Reviews

8.6 Hollymead House has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.559)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Hollymead House 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 Hollymead House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 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 4.63 for Hollymead House is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.63

  • 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hollymead House 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

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

I am an advocate for a resident at Hollymead House who has dementia. Although she understands a certain amount she can not voice her views verbally but has the ability to show if she is upset by something. I visited the home everyday sometimes more than once at different times of the day and evening. I can honestly say that I would not fault a single member of staff for their care, courtesy and respect for all the residents even though at times their patience must be tried! Good activities provide a lovely homely atmosphere every time you enter the home. The food is good.

A very friendly, clean, bright and cheerful place to live.
Absolutely wonderful.
All staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble.
All in all, you won't find a better home for care.

During some three years residence at Hollymead House my Aunt enjoyed first-class care in a welcoming, family-style environment. The Owner, Manager and Staff were unfailing in their professional yet friendly and patient attention to her needs and wishes. Celebrations of her 100th, 101st and 102nd birthdays were arranged at the Home's initiative, typifying the care and affection shown to residents. Thank you all.

My 102-year-old aunt is being well cared for. The staff are so caring towards her with lots of TLC. I have just returned from a birthday lunch put on for her by the staff with all the residents included and family made welcome.

My mother is very happy at Hollymead House and I feel confident that the care she is given is professional. She enjoys daytime activities especially the lady who helps them with crafts and needlework. Since she has lived at Hollymead House, I have moved away but I feel happy with the way she is looked after and she is always well and happy when I visit. She enjoys most of the food - occasionally she hasn't but there is generally a reason for this - new cook, cooker problem etc.

Her health is carefully monitored and relatives are quickly contacted if there are any problems. I have had one such call and the staff dealt with the problem in a professional but caring manner. I have found all the staff to be friendly, helpful and very thoughtful towards my mother.

I am very pleased with the treatment she receives and I'm confident that as the years go on, she will receive more help if it is required.

The staff without exception are friendly, polite and always welcoming whatever time of the day you visit. My friend has been in Hollymead House for about 10 weeks and is always well groomed, neat and tidy. The food he tells me is superb, always piping hot when it should be and nice and cool when the food is salads etc. My friend speaks very highly of the treatment and staff and wishes that he had gone there earlier instead of struggling at home.

The room is very spacious, light and airy with never a hint of smell which is so common in some homes.

The room is spotless and well maintained.

There is various forms of entertainment that can be enjoyed.
