Chrissian House was established in 1974 and is registered to care for 22 elderly residents. The name was formed from the previous owners two sons ‘Chris and Ian’. Converted from two detached houses, it stands in its own extensive grounds, with the garden area surrounded by flowers and mature trees.

In 1990 the home was extended via converting a detached house next to the main building (annexe). Both houses have their own kitchen, dining area and lounge with a conservatory where residents can participate in daytime activities such as table games, puzzles etc. The home offers a happy, warm, friendly family atmosphere and environment.

Chrissian Residential Home Ltd has been built and furnished to a high standard.   The home is situated on one of the main roads leading to the eastern side of the town in a residential suburb. Local buses run every 20 minutes to the town centre, with hairdressers, a Spar shop and fruit and vegetable stores as well as many others in the vicinity of the home.

A Church Service is held at the home. All other denominations are encouraged to visit the home. If you require assistance to maintain contact with your desired faith/religious service please discuss this with the manager. Holy Communion is held in the home the first Monday of the month.

Chrissian House provides residential care for both genders of any age.

The home's aim is to give the resident the opportunity to live as members of a local community in ways which are accepted as normal and valued, allowing for full use of a range of local facilities, for example: - shops, cafes and sports centres. Hopefully in time the residents will also become part of their local community. All staff recognise and promote residents rights, privacy, dignity, care and respect.

Reviews

9.7 Chrissian Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.667)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Chrissian Residential Home 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chrissian Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.667 for Chrissian Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 Chrissian Residential Home is based on 7 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 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 4.4 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.

My mother lived at Chrissian from 2009 until her death in March 2017. She had been Matron in charge of nursing/care homes from 1946 until her retirement in the 80s, so had high expectations.
She was not disappointed and loved her life at Chrissian in all respects - particularly her accommodation and the food. She found the staff to be kind, considerate and caring at all times. Staff knew residents well, were sensitive to their needs and treated them with respect.
They encouraged her and supported her in a range of activities and helped her to interact effectively with other residents.
When my mother needed to go to the hospital, the home assessed her situation promptly, accurately and responded appropriately.
As a visitor, I always felt welcome and was offered a hot drink - staff had time to speak to me about my mother - they seemed to genuinely care about the residents.
I am very happy that my mother spent her final years in such a happy and caring home.

I find this care home very good. It is a home from home not at all clinical. The management and staff are friendly but also professional. My mother is treated with respect and has a say in her care. It is a small home so everyone knows each other. The meals are very good and vary each week. Well done to all.

My uncle has lived here for over two years and despite not always being the most convivial of people(!) does admit that he likes living here. As I am his only living relative and now live over 300 miles away it is good to know that he is being cared for and his needs are being met. I would recommend Chrissian to others.

Can't say enough about the care of patients at this care home. Real home like atmosphere. The staff treat my mum with the upmost care and attention. They treat her like one of their family. I have the greatest respect for both staff and management.

Cannot speak highly enough of this care home.
The staff are more like family to us now, they are all so kind, caring and nothing is too much for them, they really do go above and beyond.
My mum is being looked after so well and I've not seen her so well and happy since moving here in January.
