Reviews

9.5 Willowcroft has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.470)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Willowcroft 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 30 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Willowcroft in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.47 for Willowcroft is calculated as follows: ( (189 Excellents x 5) + (140 Goods x 4) + (21 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 351 Ratings = 4.47

  • 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 Willowcroft is based on 16 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 8.4 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 connection with Willowcroft is to visit my wife's sister. Who has been there for 2-3 years now. From our observations on visiting Willowcroft are very caring to the people in their care. We have noticed that several functions and the occasional trips out are available for those able to do so. The whole care home is very clean, tidy and a pleasant garden area for those who wish to sit outside.

My father has visited Willowcroft previously for respite care. He moved in on a permanent basis in June following an accident to my mother and due to the extra challenges that he faces as his Alzheimer' develops. Answers are therefore based on a fairly short association with Willowcroft.

Cleanliness is good and there is no odour, which is rare. People are mostly asleep in their chairs but the alert ones do have some occupations available to them. The staff are polite and patient but slightly too few, especially on Sundays (I visit on various days).
The provision of sitting rooms on each floor of bedrooms is very nice for those who wish/need to remain near their room/the toilet, but the rooms are not particularly personalised - I have only seen one, I must add. Family photos and perhaps a few ornaments from the previous 80+ years of life help people to feel alive and connected, rather than in the queue for the grave - and on that note, the mood there is happy and positive, unlike many others I've seen.

Sharon Payne, Home Manager at Willowcroft responded to this review on 21 Jul 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, which is much appreciated. I can confirm that staffing levels for our care team are the same seven days a week, which is the same for our the kitchen and housekeeping teams. In terms of personalisation, residents are encouraged to bring in their own pictures and ornaments to make their rooms feel more homely. If you wish to discuss anything further my door is always open.

Care review went well, we discussed several things with the carer. My cousin doesn't eat well, she doesn't wish to join in on any activities as she is very deaf and has very poor eyesight. She likes to be in her room and calls it her home. We are very pleased with the way she is looked after, staff are excellent and they keep us informed about everything.

For the past two years, my husband has been a resident in Willowcroft. I have visited regularly and have always been impressed with the home and staff. They have always treated myself and my husband with respect and included us both in any event that affects my husband such as falls, inflictions, change of medication. I have been in the home at mealtimes which are colourful and well presented, there is always enough for everyone. Please may I mention all staff who I have come to know well and made me feel very welcome.

I was met by a young member of the care staff who was very smart and polite and I was given clear instruction as to how to get my friends room. The room was decently furnished but would have benefitted from some artwork on the bare walls. On leaving, I noticed a good number of residents looking rather bored in the communal areas whilst 3/4 staff were chatting and laughing in the office. I was surprised as surely some stimulation and company for the residents should have been a priority. This was downstairs. The entrance was welcoming.

Sharon Payne, Home Manager, Willowcroft at Willowcroft responded to this review on 12 Apr 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are pleased that your friend is settling into the home and hope that you continue to enjoy your visits to him. In terms of your comment regarding the décor of the bedroom, it is our practice to encourage residents to personalise their rooms as they would like, with pictures and even small items of furniture. In this case, your friend’s family did bring along various personal possessions, including pictures but he himself decided he would prefer to leave the walls bare for the time being. Obviously, if that should change, we will be delighted to go along with his wishes and provide whatever assistance is required.
With regard to your second comment, please be reassured that our residents’ wellbeing is always our top priority, and team members interact and engage with them throughout the day in different ways. I have, however, shared your comment with my colleagues and appreciate you bringing this to my attention.
Should you have any further comments or queries, please do not hesitate to discuss these with me when you are visiting.

Everywhere is very clean.
The staff are all very caring and pleasant and attentive to patients.
A pleasure to visit.

A friendly and warm welcome when let in at the front door. The facilities are clean and tidy and my mother sat content in a suitable chair watching television. Mother is able to get out of the chair and move to a nearby table for a game of snakes and ladders.
Refreshments offered by friendly staff, general feeling of contentment from other residents. Let out to leave after my visit by friendly and polite staff.

Willowcroft is a very friendly care home. My wife has been in residence there since November 2015 and is looked after very well.
I am always made welcome when I visit her and I am to do so most days.
The grounds are well kept and the back garden provides a very pleasant area to use.
The staff are always cheerful, helpful and a pleasure to meet.

Then we are offered refreshments; tea, coffee etc and biscuits. Everyone else sitting in the lounge seemed content. Then when I leave, I am let out in another friendly manner.

From what I saw, the medical treatment and response by all concerned was exemplary.

Having visited several residential homes and been very disappointed, I popped into Willow Croft after a recommendation and found the staff at the home and the day centre to be welcoming, friendly and enthusiastic about the service provided. Even though the manager was busy she kindly gave me all the information needed.
Since that visit and on all subsequent visits I have found my friend to be settled and happily chatting with staff and other residents. At meal times the staff encourage all the residents to eat together, my friend enjoys these times, they can choose the dining area they want as there are two. I am yet to see any social activities as I work during the day, but they tell me my friend does activities at the day centre.

Willowcroft looked after my brother with care and understanding. They kept him long after they could have passed him onto a nursing home, this was because it became his home and he knew and trusted everyone. I would recommend Willowcroft to anyone for their care, patience standard of nursing.

Thank you for your review which I will share with my colleagues. We do our best to treat all our residents with dignity and respect, according to their individual needs and I am sorry that your mother did not enjoy her stay with us on this occasion.

They made us very welcome, everyone of the staff spoke to us on our first visit. I felt I will be happy to leave my husband in their care.

Thank you to all at Willowcroft for helping me to arrange emergency respite care for my father when my mum had reached breaking point. The only minor issue, which was quickly resolved, were missing dentures and a towel, which have now been found.

Michelle Curtice, Home Manager at Willowcroft responded to this review on 23 Sep 2015:

Thank you very much for your review and I am pleased that we were able to provide the support needed for your father, to enable your mother to have a break. I’m sorry for the temporary loss of your father’s towel and dentures but glad this was quickly resolved. I do hope you will consider us for short breaks in the future – we will be delighted to welcome your father back.

I expressed concern to the home manager as I twice visited my mother who could not reach a drink. I asked that they ensured this was addressed. Since reporting this, each time I have visited three times a week there has always been a drink in easy reach of her either in bed or in a chair. Several members of staff have proactively assured me they are aware and the actions they have taken, which is reassuring to hear from them directly.

I am glad that we are able to resolve the issues brought to my attention and that this has been continued by the care team. Ensuring effective communication across the home with relatives, residents and care staff makes this possible and I much appreciate your input.

Visited the home today as my mum is going to be there. What a lovely place, show round by the manager who is lovely, very caring and obviously has the residents at the forefront of her mind. All staff are very friendly, lovely place, clean, efficiently run, more like a hotel. The manager made me feel that my mum will be very happy there, which gave me great peace of mind.

I have looked after my wife at home for 2 years so when it was decided by the doctors that she needed full time care i was full of apprehension. When it was decided that a place was available at Willowcroft which i knew nothing about, it made me nervous but to my delight she has settled and health improved, i am much relieved after being together for 68 years, well done to all staff. Thank you.
