Reviews

9.7 Kingsley Rest Home Ltd has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.679)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Kingsley Rest Home Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kingsley Rest Home Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.679 for Kingsley Rest Home Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.679

  • 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 Kingsley Rest Home Ltd is based on 7 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 2.8 positive Reviews (14 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 2.8 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.

The home visit by manager and under-manager to assess suitability was welcomed as my husband has vascular dementia/Alzheimers.
I will find answering some of the questions difficult unless one spends a complete day at the home. I can only say how I felt my husband had responded to the care he had received, on his behaviour whilst there and on his return home.
He was rather disorientated for a couple of days, quite naturally, was expecting me to do things for him, which he normally does himself, as I encourage him to maintain his independence as long as possible.

I visit my friend regularly in Kingsley Rest Home and have always found the staff very polite and helpful and it is a pleasure to visit. The home is always spotlessly clean and I am made very welcome. The camaraderie among the staff is very noticeable and each one is dedicated to her job. They work really well together and it is a pleasure to be in their company. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they have looked after my friend really well. I would recommend the home to anyone - it is undoubtedly first class!

Kingsley Rest Home in Wolstanton is an ideal residential care home, which I can highly recommend. Since it is a small residential home (for approximately 12 residents), this means that each resident gets the necessary support and personal attention that they need when they need it and without having to wait. All of the staff that work in the care home are friendly, approachable and nothing is too much trouble for them. The staff have each built up an excellent rapport with the individual residents and genuinely care about them. The food is home-made and is of excellent quality, with varied menus for residents to select from - catering for everyone's individual dietary needs and their tastes. The residential home is very clean and residents laundry is laundered regularly. My elderly mother has been residing in the home since April 2015 and I have had no issues at all during the time. It is a home from home, which if I had to enter residential care, it is a place I would select for myself.
