Overview

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Park View 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Park View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 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 4.464 for Park View is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.464

  • 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 4.781 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Park View is based on 10 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.781

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

9.2 Park View has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.245) from 16 Reviews

I have only recently arrived at Park View Care Home (about 6 weeks) and I am pleasantly surprised at the care and friendliness I am receiving from staff and residents. A doctor is always on call if needed, so after all, if you need to be cared for, Park View is the place.

My father in law has been here for 15 months and is terminally ill. We cannot express how impressed we are with his care. The home is always welcoming, staff are always friendly and helpful.
He always has a smile for his main carers, who feed and wash him. They are both very caring and patient with him as he is totally bed bound. His room is always clean and fresh.
Chatting to other service users, they are always happy and content.

The ethos of the home is very good. Kindness and consideration are shown to residents at all times, their dignity upheld.
Cleanliness is good, rooms are comfortable, laundry is done well and regularly. Day to day food is good and special occasions are celebrated very well too.
It is reassuring to know medication is dealt with well and any medical needs are referred to the GP without delay.
The only negative was that several months passed without an activities coordinator.

I looked at several places for my mom before deciding on Park View. It immediately struck me as far nicer than other homes we'd visited.
I am generally very pleased. Staff are great with mom. The food is excellent, the room is great. There doesn't seem to be as much going on in activities nowadays especially as that was an attraction of Park View when we first came I appreciate staff shortages etc don't help. Generally, really pleased mom is in good hands Thank you.

My mother moved into this care home in March 2017. The food served at all times was of a very high standard and always beautifully presented. Homemade cakes were always available in the lounge for residents and relatives.

After a two-week stay in the hospital, my mother deteriorated but in her last few weeks in the care home, the staff were extremely caring and loving. I shall be eternally grateful to the amazing carers who sat with her and looked after her.

Having seen many care homes in recent years, I am very impressed with Park View. The premises are well designed, comfortable and well looked after. That helps. However, the key to its success is the quality of staff especially the superiors and senior care staff who deal with residents superbly well with efficiency, dignity and respect. The senior staff set the standard for decency and thus help more junior staff hit the right note. The result is a very good environment in which top-class work from the staff makes for a really good home for residents.

I am happy living here, the food is excellent and I have a hobby colouring. I get other residents interested in the colouring. Staff are brilliant, always there when I need them. They always speak to me when passing my room. If I ask for anything, it's there for me.

Mum was unable to continue living at home due to mobility problems. Park View was our place of choice (after looking at lots of others). Immediately she was happy and delighted with her new home. Despite suffering falls and breathing difficulties she entered into activities she was interested in and enjoyed. Hairdressing was a weekly treat and she always looked lovely.
Sadly mum passed away after a hospital stay due to her ongoing infections/conditions. Survey completed based on family findings after mum passed away.
