Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Parkhouse Grange is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Parkhouse Grange in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 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 4.558 for Parkhouse Grange is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.558

  • 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 Parkhouse Grange 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 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.

9.6 Parkhouse Grange has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.558) from 13 Reviews

All the people involved with the everyday running of this care home are excellent. I am always delighted to visit my mother at Parkhouse Grange. Unfortunately, my mother is currently unwell and everyone there is supportive of trying to get her back on track. This is very reassuring to me considering how busy everyone is. Thank you all at Parkhouse Grange.

The staff are very supportive and considerate; they provide stimulating activities for the residents and are always looking out for the best for everyone there in their care. My Mum has been there now for just over 2 years and it is the best care home I could have hoped for. Nobody who cares for their parent makes the decision easily to "put them into a home" but if you have to, as I did for Mum's safety and health, I couldn't have made a better choice.

It was a difficult decision when mum needed to move into residential care. She had previously stayed at a different care home for respite and it had not been a very happy experience, so understandably I was extremely apprehensive when mum first moved into Parkhouse Grange.
However, any concerns I may have had were very quickly dispelled and mum has flourished. In fact, mum is the happiest she has been for some time as the caring and committed staff have enabled her to maintain some independence and dignity whilst providing stimulating events and activities with plenty of interaction. Mum is always well fed, clean, comfortable and above all her individual wishes and needs are respected and met.
I simply cannot rate the entire staff team highly enough.

The care home is a pleasant place to be where the staff are kind, helpful and treat the residents with sympathy and understanding. They keep a careful watch on the patient's medical needs and arrange for any treatment they may need. Relatives are kept informed of any problems that may arise and action is taken to address them. The residents also appreciate the entertainment that is laid on from time to time it really brings them alive.

My mum who has a number of problems has been made very welcome by all the staff who treat the residents with respect and dignity. I haven't seen the standard of food personally but my sister says it is fine and mum gets help eating when necessary. Bedrooms are smallish but clean and adequately furnished. The home has a welcoming feel for residents and visitors and is clean and nicely furnished. The gardens and location are good. The home is safe and secure.

My mother has been at the care home since August 2014.
I have always found the staff and management very approachable and very caring to the residents.
The doctor's surgery they use is also excellent and you can always contact the doctors if required.
I have often visited Mum when they have musical entertainment which seems to stimulate the resident. I have also been told the home is to be refurbished shortly.

Ever since I have made contact with the care home I have found all of the staff extremely kind, helpful and supportive.
They really look after Mum and I have every confidence in their care. The activities they put on encourage the residents to take part and stimulate them. I love the fact that they have a Facebook page which helps my family and friends keep up to date with Mum.

Mum is so much better since she has been in Park House. She is always nicely dressed (this would not have happened at home as she would forget to put on clean clothes). She has gained weight, the food always smells and looks nice. She likes the staff who are always considerate to her and she says she can have a laugh with them. If she is not well they will get the Dr. in to see her. She always enjoys the entertainment joining In with the singing etc or meeting the animals when they visit. We can always speak to the staff and manager if need be so are very happy for her to be there.
