  • 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 4.813 for Darsdale Home is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Darsdale Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0

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

The staff are understanding, competent and caring and have shown their considerable expertise in meeting the ever changing needs of my father in a calm, confident and reliable manner. A big thank you to all the staff who make the home a family atmosphere. Well done.

My mother has been a resident of Darsdale for just over five months. Inevitably, a certain settling-in period is required, but my mother is content with all aspects of her care there. She relates well to the staff and enjoys the company of other residents. I have been impressed by the level of care and the overall standards of the home. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

I first had the experience of Darsdale when my auntie stayed there as a resident, the home is spotless, the carers are 'caring' all the staff are friendly and my auntie was happy, so much so that when her husband needed 24 hour care we didn't hesitate in suggesting to him about staying there.
The care and attention that my uncle has received since being a resident, has never been anything short of wonderful, they are helpful to all his needs.
There are frequent day trips planned, shopping trips out, garden centre days and even themed days, recently a vintage tea party was held and the staff made it a wonderful afternoon with food and entertainment.
They have a plenty of things for the residents to take part in too, even gardening. All in all Darsdale to me is certainly a care home I would recommend to anyone looking for the ultimate in full time care for a loved one with peace of mind being of the utmost importance.

Until shortly before her death my aunt was a resident at Darsdale. Now my uncle is a resident and has been since 31st of January. He had had a stroke and had been admitted to hospital. Because of the very favourable impression that we formed of Darsdale while my aunt was a resident and when it became apparent that my uncle would not be able to go home, I contacted the home manager who immediately arranged an assessment at the hospital on the same day. Having arrived at Darsdale he was settled into a comfortable room, was made to feel welcome and very quickly settled helped by the genuine kindness of all of the staff. Since then he has had several health scares but on each occasion they were dealt with compassionately. So much to say, but I cannot praise too highly the care that he has received and his family would recommend Darsdale without hesitation. I visit frequently and am always made welcome. I wish Darsdale continued success in providing a superb level of care to all of it's residents.
