Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Quarry Mount Residential Care Home 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Quarry Mount Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.549 for Quarry Mount Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.549

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Quarry Mount Residential Care Home 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.833

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

9.4 Quarry Mount Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.382) from 12 Reviews

My aunt has been in the care home now for nearly six years. Her quality of life has changed for the good. She is always happy and looks very contented when I visit her. The management and staff are so very good they look after and care for her so well. Thank you to you all, well done.

Thank you so very much for your review. We are so very pleased to hear that you are so happy and we are meeting your wife needs.

Quarry Mount is a superb home. The staff are very professional and extremely caring. The love the staff give to their job exceeded my expectations and the level of care is outstanding. As a family, we can not thank Quarry Mount enough for everything they have done to help my mother settle in and now after a few months, my mother is the happiest and healthiest she has been for a very long time.
I would always highly recommend Quarry Mount, it is a beautiful place. Everyone is made to feel at home, with hearty, home-cooked dinners in a very clean environment. Thank you to all the staff at Quarry Mount you are all brilliant and we appreciate everything you do.

Whilst mum has only been a resident for just over a month now, we are extremely happy with the care she is receiving. The atmosphere is always friendly and caring with lots of laughter. It is a great comfort and relief for us to know mum is safe and has 24/7 care and company. All the carers go above and beyond and do a tremendous job with all the residents.

Thank you so much for your review and positive comments. The team at Quarry Mount very much appreciate them! We are so pleased that mum is settling in well and you are so happy!

A home from home for my mother. Friendly staff; kind, considerate and hardworking. A chaplain visits which is essential to my mother's culture and upbringing - a great comfort to her and myself. Confident that she was respected, looked after and a great sense of fun running throughout the home.

Thank you very much for your review, it is very much appreciated. We are also delighted that you were so happy and that we were able to fulfil your mother's needs during her time with us.

My Father was looked after in one of the bungalows at Quarry Mount for 4 1/2 years. I cannot imagine any other nursing home being more flexible and understanding of his needs as he had no signs of dementia and wanted to be as independent as possible. The home accommodated his wishes as best they could and made sure we were in agreement with his freedom to visit his local club or go out with friends. Not all care homes would be so tolerant.

Gradually he became less mobile and was looked after superbly with kindness and understanding throughout his various periods of ill health. He passed away in November 2016.

Sue Harris, Director at Quarry Mount Residential Care Home responded to this review on 31 Jan 2017:

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a privilege for us to take care of your father in one of our Assisted Living Bungalows, which enabled him to receive the care and comforts he required, whilst also allowing him his independence.

It was really lovely to know that our Mam/Granma & Mam- in-law had a wonderful Christmas. Since becoming a resident, we can see that Mam-in-law is feeling very much at home and is enjoying the trips and activities. The care staff are friendly and very helpful to us, and the smile on Mam-in-law's face when they speak to her is wonderful and very reassuring to us. Thank you.

We are delighted that your relative has settled in so well, feels very much at home and is enjoying all that we have to offer. Thank you for your kind review!

An excellent facility, wonderful management and the staff are caring, kind and very personal to residents and family. The best care home I have ever visited across the Country. The quality of my Father's life was improved and remains sustained despite increased age and inevitable frailty. I cannot speak highly enough of all of the staff members.

My father is not an easy resident to manage but all the staff show great skill and patience in giving him the care he needs on a daily basis. All the staff understand his care needs and are fully aware of his care plan. Care staff and manager keep family up to date with how he is and contact us immediately when concerns arise. The home is clean and bright and my dad is able to ask for and receive food that he requests with his personal needs.
