Overview

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Holbrook Hall is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holbrook Hall in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.865 for Holbrook Hall is calculated as follows: ( (347 Excellents x 5) + (54 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 401 Ratings = 4.865

  • 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 Holbrook Hall is based on 18 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 7.2 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.

9.9 Holbrook Hall has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.865) from 34 Reviews

My Mother has dementia and is not always cooperative but the staff in the home are very good and patient with her. They are understanding of her needs and do everything to meet those needs and encourage her. They also support us as a family as well.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our service, it is greatly appreciated. We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to care for your mum over the last 4 years and as you know we are all very fond of her.

Holbrook Hall gives out an atmosphere of caring, security and welcome. The staff are friendly, approachable and crucially have a sense of humour. They treat our Aunt with courtesy, patience, and have clearly adapted their approach to her in perfect alignment with her feisty character. She is well fed, well cared for and dare I say it, liked! We are always greeted and welcomed at the front door and both managers are always available if we need to chat about any aspect of our Aunt's care. When we needed urgent and unexpected care for our Aunt it was provided immediately and without question. That meant a lot to us as primary carers.

A lovely review, thank you so much! It is a pleasure having your aunt at Holbrook Hall and she certainly keeps us on our toes!

A warm welcome and I found my grandma happy, warm and relaxed in one of the lounges. We moved to the conservatory where we could all sit down and were kindly offered a drink by the staff. My grandma had had another excellent meal that lunchtime and had put in her teatime order. The food is marvellous at Holbrook. The staff are kind and patient with residents and guests and so very helpful. The house and rooms are spotless and cosy and the gardens are beautiful to look out on and walk round.

I cannot fault Holbrook and I am very reassured knowing my grandma is a resident at this fantastic place.

I am delighted that you are so happy with the care which we provide your grandma, and very grateful to you for taking the time to review our service.

My 90-year-old father required respite care after 2 falls at home followed by an admission to hospital for 6 days as we had a planned holiday for 4 days on his discharge date. I visited Holbrook on the Friday and a bed was available for him for the Monday. On return on the Friday, we called to collect him to take him home and he asked if he could stay for a further 2 days. We were amazed as he'd always said that he would NEVER go into either a residential / nursing home! The experience has been so positive that he is already planning another respite visit when we go away for 2 weeks next April!!
Thank you to all the friendly staff and excellent food he enjoyed and for showing him that a residential home can feel like a hotel but with more staff around.

As Holbrook Hall goes it is to be highly recommended. The staff are well trained, helpful and caring. We are provided with entertainment and things to do all this in lovely surroundings. It is also run by the people who own it and not by a committee.

Thank you so much for your review, and I am glad that you are still very happy to be living here in Holbrook Hall.

Holbrook Hall provides a very caring and safe environment in a beautiful country house with well-maintained gardens and stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Mum enjoys being in the home, and feels safe and well cared for. The staff are lovely, very friendly and go the extra mile to ensure the residents are well cared for but remain independent and maintain their dignity. The home offers a varied timetable of activities which residents are encouraged to take part in.

Morag Vaughan, M D at Holbrook Hall responded to this review on 30 Oct 2017:

Thank you very much indeed for your review.

My mother has been treated with great care since she went into the home three years ago. She looks smarter, eats a better diet and gets more exercise than she did in her own home. She has her hair done regularly, teeth checked by a dentist, regular chiropody treatment and has even had an optician examine her eyes. She broke her hip in April 2016 and has been encouraged to become mobile again, using her zimmer frame. No mean achievement at 97! We mentioned to the Manager that she is often unsure of the date and, as a result, a large clock showing the date was brought.

Your complimentary comments are very much appreciated, Linda. Many thanks.

The home affords very comfortable surroundings in attractive grounds. It is quiet and safe. The rooms are well furnished and clean. The care of residents is of prime concern to the staff. My mother in law enjoys the food and has said she wished she had entered the home earlier as it has made her life so much easier. Visitors are encouraged and there is always a place to enjoy the time spent with the resident.

Two years ago I stayed at Holbrook Hall recovering from a total knee replacement.
I was already familiar with the hall when it was a private residence. In my experience, it is far and away the best residential care home in the area. The staff are wonderful and the amenities excellent.
My wife and I have lived in Holbrook town for 51 years and now I am on my own, I can think of no better place to live out the rest of my life.

I think Holbrook Hall is a lovely home. Very friendly care staff seem happy and all residents seem comfortable and happy too. When visiting my client who I cared for in his own home I have noticed a great improvement in how he looks and feels. I am very proud that my client is being looked after here at Holbrook Hall.

The loving care shown to my mother-in-law throughout her stay at Holbrook Hall has been exceptional, including her end-of-life care. During her stay she thoroughly enjoyed the regular trips out, organised by the management, particularly her Christmas lunch.
Although she was unable to join in some of the activities organised, she really enjoyed the ones she did participate in, even having a dance with the staff on occasion. She formed a lovely bond with some of her carers, especially towards the end of her life, sharing a laugh and a joke with them on many occasions.

In 2013 my mother went into Holbrook Hall on a respite basis. Immediately before this she had been struggling in her Granny Flat at home and we felt that a residential home would be best for her. As soon as Mum arrived she immediately settled in well and we knew that Holbrook was the right home for her. She has now been a resident for four years and continues to be very happy and content in her environment. The management and staff are very supportive and caring and it is very reassuring to all of the family to know that my mother is being so well looked after.

My mother was a resident for 6.5years. The care she received during her stay and particularly during her final, difficult days was beyond praise.
She was always happy, clean and well nourished. The staff organised events, including outings, designed with great success at stimulating the residents and awakening their interests.
I would recommend Holbrook Hall to anyone seeking top class residential care.

My mother has lived at Holbrook Hall for over 6 years now. It is a beautiful well maintained home set in lovely grounds and gardens that the residents love to take advantage of when weather permits.
The accommodation is spacious with plenty of room for the residents to choose where to sit during the day when they are not taking part in any of the activities of which - keep fit, quizzes, gardening club, flower arranging, bingo are but a few. They also have regular trips out and entertainers visiting the home.
The staff are all friendly, caring and approachable with some having worked there for several years.
The residents are all well fed with lovely meals freshly prepared by the cook.
All in all, it gets a gold star from me!

The care and help given is second to none. I would recommend this establishment without hesitation. Every member of staff treats the residents with the same care and consideration with no task too much trouble for them. The communication from the staff is targeted at the right level. The building and grounds are well maintained and bear more resemblance to a country hotel than a care home. In summary, an excellent place to live and be cared for.

If I need anything I have only to ask for it at the office. My visitors are always welcomed, given refreshments etc. We are often offered outings and activities. We often have people who come to entertain us. We have film shows also.

Holbrook Hall has proven to be the perfect place for my Mum to recover from a serious illness. Hopefully, she will remain as a long-term resident. She has settled in extremely well as a result of the extremely friendly and professional managers and staff. Her bedroom is modern with excellent facilities and the two lounges and conservatory are warm and comfortable. The meals are varied and home cooked to a high standard. Knowing that my Mum is comfortable and receiving excellent care has given me confidence in the service that Holbrook Hall provides.

Having looked at several homes before placing my mother at Holbrook, I was struck by the friendly and concerned care of the staff towards the residents. It has several lounges with the seats grouped together for residents to sit and talk to one another rather than a line of chairs down either side of the room which I think makes interaction difficult. The food is excellent and home cooked rather than brought in and, if necessary, Holbrook will allow residents to eat in the lounge or their room although every effort is made to try and get them to integrate with other residents. There is a programme of activities each week and trips are organised for the residents who wish to avail themselves of these.

Compared with other local homes, our initial reaction to Holbrook Hall and it's surroundings made us think that Holbrook would be out of our price range and therefore unavailable to us. It was a pleasant surprise to find that the price was very competitive and luckily a room was available too.
Mum has now been a resident for just over three years and we could not be more pleased with the care she has received during this period. The care is of the very highest standard available and the management and staff share the same vision of what a quality care home should offer. There has been a fairly large turnover of staff during this period, but new staff are integrated quickly and the 'family' atmosphere is not adversely affected by this. Mum suffers from Alzheimer's disease and as her condition has worsened the amount of care and support offered has increased to meet her changing needs, which is a welcome comfort to relatives at a difficult time coping with this truly devastating disease. Thank-you.

Holbrook Hall offers a high standard of care and provides residents with a varied diary of events, including days out.
The food is excellent, extra portions are offered if requested and visitors are always presented with tea and biscuits.
Care seems to be first-class from a visitors point of view as my father seems very content at Holbrook Hall - a highly recommended home.

Mum passed away on 5th February 2016 aged 92. Mum had lived at Holbrook Hall care home for 3 and half years and during that time was settled and happy. I particularly want to focus my recommendation on the last week of mums life. When l look back on that very emotional plus difficult time, I can honestly say that the staff of Holbrook Hall supported mum, my sister and I to the very highest standard - we cannot thank them enough.

My father lived at this home for nearly three years until his death aged 91 years. He was extremely happy and settled in very well. Holbrook has a very high staff/resident ratio and many of the staff have worked there for many years. There is low staff turnover. We visited every week for nearly three years and were always struck by the clean and well cared for. The elderly of course can be difficult but the patience and care of the staff was excellent. The hal is in a beautiful setting with nice gardens. The palliative care my father received at the end of his life was excellent. We were lucky to find this place.

My parents went to Holbrook in 2013 following an accident to my mum, and a worsening of my father's condition.
My father passed away (at Holbrook) later that year, I cannot fault the care and compassion by everyone at Holbrook.
My mother is still there, very frail but extremely well looked after by all the staff.
It is a safe, secure, clean place for mum to be.
