Reviews

9.6 Firgrove House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.597)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Firgrove 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Firgrove House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.597 for Firgrove House is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.597

  • 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 Firgrove House is based on 5 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). 5 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.

You need to know about my mum, she was a loving, kind person, so her family needed the same from a home. Firgrove matched my mum's needs and made a huge difference to my mum and her family. Management, carers, cooks, and cleaners worked together to create a great home (within a home). My mum and her family were very lucky to find such a home like Firgrove. Thank you so much.

We have found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. On all levels, they have provided information care and reassurance to us (the family) and the resident. They have gone out of their way to support us when the resident's husband and our father died to make the transition into care as easy as can be possible. We are using their dementia care services and feel that all staff and the key worker in particularly understand the care needs of our stepmother.

We have found the home clean and homely with plenty of different seating areas where the residents can find their favourite niche of the day. The garden area outside is well kept and recently was the location for a family garden party celebration, which was a lovely occasion with lots of happy people. Our stepmother constantly tells us she is very happy and loves living there, which is tremendously reassuring.

We would just like to express our gratitude to yourself and all the staff at Firgrove. As we mentioned when we spoke to you on the phone we were very apprehensive about using respite care for mum, but your caring and happy environment put our minds at ease.
A couple of things we were especially pleased with was that mum managed to put on some weight whilst staying with you, as getting her to eat properly has become an issue whilst staying at home. Also, she said she really enjoyed the activities and chatting to other people in her own age group, which we feel has helped to stimulate her mind.
Once again, thank you and all the staff for the care provided to Anne during her stay, and be assured that Firgrove House is a care home that we would definitely like to use again for Anne respite needs and would have no hesitation in recommending to other people looking for a safe and caring environment for one of their relatives or friends.

My mother has been in Firgrove House for well over a year now. Firgrove House and their staff look after mum's needs well, always putting her first. They also like to look after mum's visitors regularly. The home is always tidy and warm. The food is always good according to mum. The home is now progressing well in the renovation of their Victorian property, replacing windows, shutters and carpets as necessary. I would recommend this care home to anyone looking to rehome their relations in the Yate area.
