Reviews

9.7 Maycroft Residential Care has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.713)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Maycroft Residential Care in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 4.713 for Maycroft Residential Care is calculated as follows: ( (276 Excellents x 5) + (80 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 369 Ratings = 4.713

  • 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 Maycroft Residential Care is based on 22 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 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 22 Reviews ÷ 5 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.

The staff at Maycroft have been exceptional in getting to know Dad and really wanting to go the extra mile. He settled in really quickly and the team have welcomed our whole family. It is a true home from home. We are so happy with how Dad is cared for and how relaxed he is ..... Thank you, Maycroft.

When my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's we were devastated. As time went by it became increasingly difficult to care for him at home. Myself and my two daughters took the reluctant decision to place him into residential care. The placement had to be one that gave him the care and support he had always given us as a family. On average we viewed three homes per week for months on end, and never felt completely comfortable with the decision to choose one as a home for him long term. Thank goodness Maycroft was next on our list. We felt at ease from the very beginning with the welcome we received. The management were helpful, friendly and reassuring. My husband has settled remarkably well, and now enjoys many activities including painting, cookery class and lots of musical entertainment. I cannot find words to express my gratitude and thanks for the care, support and understanding he receives every day from the amazing staff. Maycroft is the very definition of a care home - it cares.

I dreaded putting my mother into a home and agonised for months. We visited many homes, some very modern and state of the art. We visited Maycroft Residential Care by default and realised immediately that this was the right place. As soon as we walked in the door unannounced, we were greeted warmly by the staff and some residents. Our fears were quickly laid to rest and the day she moved in was wonderful. Everyone was welcoming there were flowers in her room and a beautiful card. Tea and cake were served and it felt right. That first week the management sent texts and photos of mum joining in with activities. Despite her increasing care needs, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. She has her hair done, sees a chiropodist and optician in the home. She goes on trips, loves the entertainment and eats heartily. That was two months ago. Since then there has been an amazing change in her. She is really cared for. Everyone is kind to her. She is treated with respect and dignity. She is my mum again.

Maycroft has offered my mother the greatest care and attention I can imagine she could receive. She wasn't keen at all to go into a home, was pretty difficult with staff when she arrived and has a naturally negative disposition. But after only a few hours, she had signed up for a manicure, pedicure, trip to a local farm shop for shopping and coffee and arranged to have her hair done. The staff had listened to her, offered her great kindness and understanding and she hasn't looked back. She has talked about how lovely the team are and has been keen to introduce us to them. She has made friends, something she never thought she would do in a home and she is genuinely enjoying being with people in a way that she and I never thought likely. The food is something else that she repeatedly comments on, how good it is and how much variety there is....and she loves the cakes too! We feel very lucky to have found Maycroft for all the above reasons but particularly the exceptional care.

Since my Mother-in-law became a resident at Maycroft she has found a new lease of life. On entering Maycroft she had become very morose and 'didn't want to live'. She was underweight and had lost her zest for life. Now, at 96, her eyes are sparkling, she has regained her sense of humour and happily banters with the staff. She remarks how kind and patient all the staff are and notices that they have a difficult job to do with more disabled residents. She is well-cared for and happy.
She has always enjoyed her food and relishes her breakfast, elevenses, dinner (at least two choices), afternoon tea and supper. She has put on over half a stone since becoming resident. She joins in with the activities offered and I have heard her give answers to the Quiz. She is happy to chat with any like-minded resident. She has a pleasantly-furnished bedroom with many of her personal items displayed. On visiting Maycroft we are always welcomed and offered refreshments. Communication with staff is good.

Maycroft has a very homely and friendly atmosphere. Whenever my husband and I visit we are always greeted warmly by the staff who we now know very well, along with some of the residents, since my father-in-law moved into the Home in April 2016. We love the fact that the residents congregate to chat and socialise with the staff and visitors, so no-one is left out.

We are confident that my father-in-law is being well looked after and he tells us that he really enjoys living at Maycroft, which surely means there can be no better recommendation.

I was incredibly worried when I had to put my husband in a care home because one does hear some bad reports, but as soon as I found Maycroft Residential Care, my fears disappeared. When we took him in he was welcomed with open arms, introduced to everyone and shown to his room which was light and airy and looked out over the lovely gardens. Almost immediately, I realised it was like a home from home and I needn't worry. The carers are extremely patient and loving and my husband actually enjoys being there. The food is excellent and above all, a cup of tea, his one love is always available. I can visit at any time at all and always welcome with a cup of tea. The other patients are always happy and contented and there is often a quiz game or sing-song going on which they enjoy. Management and staff are always available to discuss any problems I may have and are only too pleased to help. I cannot speak too highly of Maycroft Residential Care and its staff. I really don't know where I would be without them.

Dad has dementia and after lots of thought and visiting various care homes we decided that this home would be the most suitable. He could not have been made more welcome. The staff are extremely kind and thoughtful and put him at ease. As long as dad has a cup of tea and good food he is happy!! He certainly has that!! The bedrooms are comfortable, clean and adequate, overlooking the beautiful gardens. The home organises entertainment and trips. Dad went to Audley End and fed the ducks he loved it. The management always sends me photos of dad, they not only care for dad they care for the families too. I rate this home 10/10.

I live 300 miles away and cannot visit as often as I would like but I am almost invariably welcomed by name by staff on arrival.
The atmosphere is always friendly with staff keen to fill me in on my mother's participation in recent activities, although I suspect a hint of exaggeration as to the extent of her contribution. The Maycroft offers a range of activities and whilst my mother's ability to participate is limited, she still benefits from the musical and singing activities. These days, she would probably be quite happy to stay in bed all day, but they make the effort to get her up, dressed and into the dayroom. Whilst she needs to be put back to bed in the afternoon, her door remains open with music playing which she always liked at home. I have never doubted that she is well cared for. Recommendation - provision of sheltered accommodation for partner to reside in.

Maycroft Residential Care is a warm, friendly home - a 'home from home'. The residents are managed in a highly professional but caring way. The staff are friendly and genuinely caring people who take pride in their work. There is a lot of happiness in this home with lovely, welcoming staff. The care given to the residents is second to none. We would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Sadly this was the month my brother-in-law died. He was in Maycroft for four years during which time he had superb care from all the members of staff. The accommodation was excellent, all the food was beautifully cooked by the chef and assistants. The entertainment was great with regular visits from singers which all the residents thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, even though my sister would liked to have looked after her husband at home she could not have managed so Maycroft made her life so much better of the wonderful way they looked after him.

Four and a half years ago, my husband had to go into a care home. I visited many before I decided on Maycroft Residential Care. I used to visit several times a day, lunch time, mornings and even during the night. During my husband's time at Maycroft Residential Care, it became a second home to both myself and my husband, the staff were great, very understanding and treated my husband with dignity. I could not praise the carers and management enough because of the care and love I found there. I still visit.

My mother has been a resident of Maycroft for three years. She has dementia, has a suprapubic catheter, cannot walk, talk and often lashes out in frustration. She is treated with respect and cared for very well. The staff always shave time for the residents even though they are constantly busy. There is always an activity twice a day and music which the residents love. The food is freshly made and of a high standard. The staff are friendly and caring and keep relatives informed.

I came into contact with Maycroft Residential Care when my dear love, my partner, became a resident. My distress was very evident to the manager and staff. We were helped through a very difficult time, our distress was assuaged. The comfort and cleanliness (sparkling is the word!!), the consistent help my lady has and continues to receive, I am welcomed on my daily visits, I have I have lunch daily and the food is excellent and varied. The activities and visits to places bespeak an attitude and approach to the residents needs both mental and physical! I cannot speak too highly of Maycroft Residential Care.

My husband who had advanced Alzheimer's and therefore very little language or understanding was very happy and contented in this home. During the last 4 months, he became bed bound as the illness advanced. As I do not drive and live alone, I did not want this as it would have meant I could visit him every day or at night if necessary. The manager and senior staff decided he should stay in his own room with a hospital bed and mattress. Suitable food was prepared and he was kept clean and comfortable for the last 14 weeks of his life. They kept me well informed of any changes and liaised regularly with the G.P. He could not have been better looked after anywhere else and certainly not in the hospital. He recognised the regular staff and allowed them to help him to the line.

My father suffered from Gait Apraxia (an inability to control the movement of his legs or to balance steadily) and a rapid onset of unspecified dementia.
He was a resident of Maycroft for approximately seven months. We chose Maycroft following visits to many care homes within a 20 miles drive from our home in Hertfordshire.
Above everything, we wanted a small, hands-on establishment, 25 residents was ideal.
At every level, my father was looked after in a manner which met his every need. We could visit at any time (including meal times). The resident chefs were good and were part of the whole care delivery solution. The manager was always available for open discussions and each and every carer, irrespective of their own age, treated my father, the other residents and ourselves with the utmost courtesy and respect.
We visited many care homes, don't judge by the quality of the building, carpets and drapes.
Maycroft stands head and shoulders above the rest.

My brother had motor neurone disease and was aged 59. The care and devotion from the staff was remarkable, he wanted for nothing. He was so young and as the disease progressed the staff were wonderful in the way they cared for him. The home is not a luxurious one, but look further and what is important is the quality of staff, which this home has. The residents are catered for in every way, with various activities every afternoon.
The Manager is to be complemented on the way this home is run. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone thinking of putting a dear one in residence here.
