Reviews

8 Boniface House has a Review Score of 8 (7.959)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Boniface 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Boniface House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.492 for Boniface House is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.492

  • 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 3.467 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Boniface House is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.217

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My father was only a resident for four months and in that time he built up excellent relationships with the staff and on our regular visits he had nothing but praise for the way in which he was looked after. He referred to the staff as being "marvellous" and that it felt like a community. A few days before his unexpected death he had discussed with us the possibility of returning to his own home with a care package but knew that if he did so, told would only be possible for a short term and said he realised if he did so Boniface House might not have a vacancy at the time he might need to return to a care home environment.
He told us several times how pleased he was that we had chosen Boniface for him. We had originally visited several care homes locally and felt that Boniface was the best. We particularly liked the way in which the accommodation was arranged in clusters with homely living rooms. It was a great shame his stay wasn't longer.

Jennifer Shaw, Marketing at Boniface House responded to this review on 11 Aug 2017:

Dear Mr L
Thank you so much for leaving a positive review with Boniface. We are pleased that your father was happy in your chosen location.
Many thanks again and kind regards
Olympus Care Services

My father was a resident for over 5 years at Boniface House. Throughout his stay, he was treated with great care and warmth. He regarded Boniface House as his home and carers as part of his extended family. His personal, social and health needs were all fully met. His room was homely and clean and he enjoyed the company of other residents at social times. As his health declined in the last year of his life, he was cared for with dignity and great tenderness. He chose to end his days at Boniface House and carers provided support and affection beyond expectation to both my father and myself, his daughter.

All three of my mother's children live abroad so weekly supervision of the care given was not possible however we all quickly recognised that patience and compassion was a major aspect of Boniface House also their thoroughness in keeping us all informed upon my mother's death, the manageress helped to obtain certificates and maintained contact with the undertakers to ensure a smooth trouble free transfer of her remains. Absolutely splendid.

Mum has Alzheimers and has been a resident for 6 years. All the staff are very approachable, helpful and caring. If a problem arises with her they let me know straight away which is very reassuring. Mum is well looked after and seems happy.
