9.6 Gresley House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.575)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Gresley House 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Gresley House 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 4.742 for Gresley House is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.742

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gresley House 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.

My mum moved here from another home this year. I cannot fault the home, they care for mum so well, physically and emotionally. She has put on weight and is much happier. We do not have to worry about appointments and professional visits as they sort everything and just give us a ring to update us.

We reluctantly placed my grandad at Gresley House when we could no longer meet his needs at home; We cannot fault the care he now receives, he appears happy and we can now spend quality time with him when we visit. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The manager phones us herself to update us on his health and well being. I would recommend Gresley House to anyone looking for a homely place for their relative.

The activities and events are stimulating and enjoyable for us all.
My family and I are always made welcome and are always offered tea and cake.
I heartily recommend Gresley House to anyone looking for a homely, friendly care home.

My mother in law has been a resident here for the past 2 years after initially going in for respite care and it quickly becoming clear that she would struggle to cope on her own at home. From the minute she has been here she has been treated with respect and care and the staff have taken the time to talk to both her and the family to get to know us, and find out what they could do to make Mum's life as comfy as possible. Since Mum has been here her general health seems to have improved and I believe this is thanks to the attention she gets from all the staff.

In the last 2 years, the home has had new management and the house has been refurbished and it now has a warm and welcoming feeling. There is a lovely garden for the residents to enjoy and several community rooms for different activities.

Nothing seems to be too much trouble and any requests or problems are dealt with promptly and with no fuss.

Although my brother was in Gresley House a short while, I must admit he was looked after and cared for, we couldn't have asked for a better well run care home. The management and staff looked after him and us and kept us informed on his every need. Sadly he died on the 11th June but he was looked after and made as comfortable as possible and he was treated in a sympathetic and caring way and would like to thank the manager and staff at the Gresley House care home.

My mum spent 2 weeks respite care in Gresley House. She needed support at night at very short notice. All the staff were very friendly and very caring towards her. In fact they were very caring toward myself as well. They would always offer me a cup of coffee or tea when I visited. Nothing seemed too much trouble at all. There was always a positive, happy and welcoming atmosphere during the time she stayed.
My mum was given a room that had been newly refurbished. Although the single room had no toilet, there was a sink in the corner which was very handy for washing and cleaning teeth.
She had 3 ample meals throughout the day and plenty of opportunities for drinks whenever she wanted one.

My mother has been a resident in Gresley House for several months, and the move has had a beneficial affect on her health and well being. Without exception staff are warm and welcoming, creating a very homely environment. Every effort is made to engage residents and relatives in day to day activities, nothing is ever too much trouble. My mother's care plan reflects her individual needs and preferences and my observations are that care is delivered in a dignified and personalised manner.
Before moving in staff made us aware that there were refurbishment plans for the home which are currently being implemented.

My Mother has been a resident at Gresley House since June 2014 when she was diagnosed with profound dementia. It was a serendipitous find by my sister.
The first thing that attracted us to Gresley House was the friendly and caring attitude of the staff.
They get to know the residents, and their little ways, and treat them according to their needs - always with sensitivity.
As a relative I am always treated with courtesy and offered refreshment.
At all levels the staff keep me informed of changes or needs relating to my Mother's care.

The home was taken under new ownership earlier this year and is currently being refurbished, new floors, new seating and more to come. The staff have also been undertaking courses to enable them to better understand and enable their day to day interactions with the residents.
I would have no hesitation recommending Gresley House.
