Reviews

9.5 Bank Close House has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.511)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bank Close House 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bank Close House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.511 for Bank Close House is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 94 Ratings = 4.511

  • 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 Bank Close House is based on 6 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.4 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 Gran was in for a week for respite. The staff were friendly, approachable, caring and nothing was too much trouble.

On arriving, they asked my Gran all about her usual routine and respected her wishes.
I had no concerns whatsoever with the care my Gran received from the staff.

Jill Cocking, Operations Manager at Bank Close House responded to this review on 29 Aug 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind words and appreciation of the staff at Bank Close House.
I will ensure this is passed onto them, I know everyone will be delighted.

Nothing fazes the staff at Bank Close House. In January 2017, my mother came from Lancashire to view the home and found herself too exhausted to return. Her choice of room was immediately made available and a walking aid provided.

All the staff are kind, patient and caring and genuinely interested in Mum and her life.

The senior staff are pro-active in their care, anticipating Mum's needs as she deteriorates.

My mother's life is coming to an end and the manager has assured me that they will do everything they can to ensure she is able to die peacefully at Bank Close House surrounded by staff who know her and care about her.

We are enormously grateful to all the staff at Bank Close House for giving Mum such tender care during the last part of her life.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I know without reservation that all of the staff will be delighted that they are recognised for their care, and more so that you feel so assured by how we can support your mum and yourself.
I assure you I will pass on your review and its contents.

A calm orderly home which has given my mother the stability she needs - she suffers from dementia. Facilities and decoration need updating but the care is excellent. All of the staff who come into contact with mum are caring, considerate and thoughtful in all that they do.

Thank you for you kind review. The staff work very hard and I am sure they will be delighted with your review.

The home manager is approachable and always available if you have any questions. The house is friendly and staff appear to be happy in their work. They have a cook at the house who makes delicious food, the residents enjoy meal times together in a relaxed environment.
The gardens around the house are lovely and the residents have access to a safe area at the back of the house.

Concerns re Dad's mobility were dealt with quickly. Subsequent visits from physio resulted in upgraded walking stick, raised seat (cushion). Throughout manager was always available to speak to and ensured and concerns and solutions were passed on. The home is spotless. The food is lovely, has a very homely feel about it. The activity organiser engages residents well providing a full and varied, excellent programme of activities. The staff are friendly and treat residents well. It would be really good if upgrades to toilet facilities could be made but I believe upgrade plans are being considered overall, very good.

Thank you so much for your review on the home, the manager and her team will be delighted with your comments, they work very hard in the home.
We are due a full upgrade and extension to the home which had been approved by the local authority and will hopefully take place summer of this 2017.

My mum has been a resident of Bank Close House since June 2016. I have been very satisfied with the service and care she has received during this time.
It gives me great peace of mind knowing that she is safe and treated with the utmost dignity but the genuinely caring staff.

Thank You for your comments, the staff at Bank Close work very hard. I am delighted that you are happy with the care we deliver to 2 members of your family.

My Grandma was recently a resident of Bank Close Care Home in Hasland. From the moment she was admitted the staff did everything they could to make her comfortable and treat her with dignity. While she was at Bank Close my Grandma had her birthday and the staff made such a fuss of her (and every other resident who has a birthday whilst there) they did a little buffet tea and made her a cake. Every time I visited everyone there seemed well cared for and they were all treated with respect and as individuals.
Sadly my Grandma passed away while she was at Bank Close but the staff there did everything they could to ensure that she was comfortable and we were allowed to be there with her whenever we wanted. Although it was a sad time we were treated with such respect and we couldn't have wished for anything more for my Grandma. All the staff there were so kind and genuinely seem to care for the residents. I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone looking for a care home.
