Reviews

9.5 Marden Court has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.500)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Marden Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Marden Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.5 for Marden Court is calculated as follows: ( (140 Excellents x 5) + (77 Goods x 4) + (21 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 238 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 Marden Court is based on 14 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 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 5.6 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 mum passed away January 10th after being ill since December. The care and compassion through the last difficult days was just so good. They were also thoughtful to me as the last few days were very traumatic for me.

Their care helped make a very sad time a little easier and nothing was too much trouble. An amazing care team.

Our dear mum was welcomed into Marden Court and had an extremely contented 14 years there until her very recent passing at the home. Mum embraced life there, continuing to enjoy many of her loves; bingo, quizzes, skittles, musical entertainment or simply enjoy the tranquility of the garden and she was very much encouraged by staff every step of the way.
The care and support mum received was consistently high with regular reviews that we as family always attended and during which mum’s care needs and general well-being was openly discussed and all aspects explored.
As mum’s health took a significant decline in recent months the staff displayed such kindness and very special care with respect and dignity.
Marden Court was, in our mum’s words, her ‘home’ where she built many friendships.
As a family, we always felt welcomed, whether sons, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, we’ve all enjoyed our visits to Great Nanny’s house.
It became a big part of our family life, a place where many memories were made.

Marden Court is a well-maintained care home, with reasonably appointed rooms, lounges, common areas and dining room. The outdoor space is appealing and a pleasant place to enjoy the sunshine. Staff are very professional, friendly and go out of their way to try and meet the needs of residents. Looking after the elderly, many with dementia is a tough challenge, but staff demonstrate a caring approach, showing empathy and try and treat residents as individuals.

Staff are very well trained as demonstrated one day when I was visiting - an emergency occurred, and all staff responded immediately and had the incident under control within about a minute. Impressive reaction and a positive outcome. Although my preference would have been to have my mother live in her flat, circumstances dictated otherwise, but Marden Court is a most satisfactory alternative.

This is a fantastic care home. Clean and well run with excellent, friendly staff. Small with a very 'personal' atmosphere. Today, as usual, we were made welcome and found Mum happy and content with her surroundings.

On arrival at Marden Court we were greeted by very helpful and friendly staff. The level of kindness and hospitality we received exceeded our expectations. Since settling in, Mother seems to have a new lease of life. I cannot fault any of the staff there. The level of care Mother receives is superb in her every need.
When visiting, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Superb facility.

Marden Court is a friendly Care Home providing individual care for residents with limited physical or mental capacity. As a volunteer and church minister I have only had tea and cakes but the lunches smell good. I know from residents I have spoken to that they enjoy the food and individual requirements are catered for. There is a lovely garden, recently planted out and has the addition of colourful garden furniture. The lounge has recently been decorated and has seating appropriate to the needs of the residents. A very enjoyable morning was had recently with a visit from a Ukulele player.

Most of the time it is a friendly, happy place, especially when they have music and activities on. Also they have animals here at a farm, which our grandchildren love and the fun day.

Marden Court is a lovely home. My mother stayed for a respite stay to get a feel of care homes and I couldn't of been happier. The staff were all friendly and nothing was ever to much. My mum settled in really well and still talks about going back to Marden Court.
