Reviews

9.2 The Priory Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.166)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for The Priory Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Priory 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.

  • 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 4.333 for The Priory Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (25 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.333

  • 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 The Priory 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.

From my observation, the care demonstrated to date has been exceptional. The care team, whilst extremely professional, demonstrate an empathetic and a genuine caring approach. They are proactive in meeting the residents' needs and I have observed them acting swiftly when an urgent situation arises. It is very reassuring to feel my mother is in the hands of such a capable and competent team.

Very pleased overall with The Priory. Mum has been a resident there since June 2015 and the level of care, including the home and the carers is excellent.
"Food is very good and plenty of it" is a regular statement/comment made by my mum.
One thing she mentions often is that there are not enough activities.

My mother has settled in well to the Priory and likes her room as it looks over the golf course and has a balcony. Mum says the staff are friendly and the food is good. (My mother is independent to get around and about).

From a relative's point of view, I would like to see more activities taking place but this probably can only be achieved if there were more staff or a designated activities co-ordinator).

Daniel Johnson, Director at The Priory Care Home responded to this review on 14 Jul 2017:

Our activities programme is wide and varied. Our in-house activities include fitness sessions such as Tai Chi and physiotherapy to music, singers, animal antics with various exotic creatures brought in for the residents to pet and hold. Puppet shows, Amateur Dramatics, Pantomimes, therapy dogs, summer fete, fireworks display, Valentines, Easter, Halloween and Christmas Parties and various daily crafts and games. Our External activities include weekly trips out in our minibus to pubs, shops, the safari park, the garden centre and canal boat trips.

We will keep the residents and relatives informed of all activities by displaying a Monthly Calendar in the main corridor.

Since I came to The Priory Care Home about 3 months ago, I found it to be an excellent home where one lives, not just a place to stay. The staff work hard and the individual residents have plenty of choice on how to live their lives according to their abilities. There is not pressure put on anyone to take up occupation. They do not want exercise, singing etc. They have access to their own rooms or to communal rooms as they wish any time of the day. It is a good place to be.
