Reviews

9.4 Tallington Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.444)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Tallington Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tallington Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.444 for Tallington Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 160 Ratings = 4.444

  • 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 Tallington Care Home is based on 8 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 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 7.8 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.

I think the new accommodation is lovely it's a pity it's not used all the time and drinks are there for people who can not get up and get them for themselves.

My husband who is disabled has just had a week's respite at Tallington Lodge Care Home, the manager and staff were so welcoming and caring, he was very comfortable and well looked after. The food was outstanding. We both would definitely recommend this home and I have no hesitation in booking his respite with them again.This is the fourth home he has stayed in and definitely gets top marks.

I would like to thank all staff at Tallington Lodge for the outstanding support given to my mother. The team ethos was evident throughout and the care, compassion and commitment to ensuring residents were treated with dignity and respect had a positive impact on helping her recovery and giving her confidence to come to terms with a new chapter in her life.
The meals were also of exceptional quality and thoroughly enjoyed by my mother. When visiting I asked myself the question 'If I needed residential care would I be happy to be a resident at Tallington?' The answer is clear, I would feel confident that my needs would be clearly identified and catered for in a professional and friendly way and I would feel very much at home.

Overall we are very pleased with the care my mother in law receives. It has a 'homely' feeling which we think is essential. The carers look after her very well. When we come to visit which is every week, we always find her smiling, we are told she sleeps well and eats well which reassures us. In the past when she has been in the hospital, she is always really pleased to come back, we think she really views Tallington as 'home'.
We would also like to mention one of your carers, she really seems to have a special connection with her which is lovely. Thank you for all your hard work.

My mother when living by herself was unsafe through neglecting to look after herself. Since she has been here she takes her drugs, eats her food and drinks her drinks, and falls far less frequently. We feel that we can now make social calls and spend more time in conversation rather than responding to her health issues. When we leave, we feel that she is in safe hands.

I found the staff extremely helpful, the home itself was spotlessly clean and the facilities were excellent. Most importantly the residents all seemed extremely happy and contented. I would recommend Tallington Care Home and Country Court Care to all families looking for a "home from home" for their family members.

This was my first visit to see my auntie since she joined you at Tallington. The staff were very friendly and helpful and speaking to auntie, she is 100% happy as is my cousin - her daughter.
We chatted with auntie for about half an hour and during this time, there was no criticism of the home at all - everything positive.

My mother resided in Tallington Care Home some time ago, for the final few years of her life and having recently visited her younger brother, my uncle, I found him very happy and well looked after. His only comment was about some of the meals, but I think he's a little fussy about food in any case. All the staff were very helpful and jolly, and extremely caring with the residents.

Tallington Care Home was supposed to be a brief recuperation for my father-in-law - he ended up within a week requiring palliative care. The manager was exceptional - caring, supportive, informative and generous. She was everywhere and everything we needed her to be. The manager and her staff were the jewels int he crown, making a very difficult time easier - as a family, we could not believe how accommodating everyone was.
We were grateful for the professionalism and care shown.

The communal facilities are good, but the bedrooms are rather small as is the lift, but the care provided is excellent. The manager and all the staff are very friendly and helpful and mum is very happy at the home.

My nan joined Tallington Care Home on December 29 2015 after becoming unwell and unable to remain safe in her own home - my nan's worst nightmare. However, the staff soon made nan feel welcome with their kind ways and excellent care. Nan's room soon began to feel like a home from home. Nan loved the home cooked meals and friendly faces of the carer that she trusted. As nan's health deteriorated, I cannot express enough gratitude at the superb level of care, respect and dignity my nan was given. Nothing was too much trouble and everything possible was done to ensure this difficult situation was dealt with the best care for her.

the care my mum has received during her shirt stay at Tallington (2 months) has been exemplary. The excellent team of carers provided mum with lovely home cooked meals, invaluable support and encouragement and endless stream of friendly faces. As mums health deteriorated their already superb level of care excelled ensuring that absolutely everything possible that could be done was done. Mum was given absolute comfort, dignity and respect, as was I and my family. I will be forever indebted to the staff for making mums stay and passing as comfortable and peaceful as it was.
