Reviews

8.4 Templemore Care Home has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.416)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Templemore Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Templemore Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.685 for Templemore Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.685

  • 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 3.731 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Templemore Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.231

  • 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-in-law became a resident at Templemore after 7 weeks in the hospital. He has regained his mobility and settled into life at Templemore. The staff are very caring and kind. There are plenty of activities available and family and friends are made to feel very welcome and included. The building is light and well decorated and always spotlessly clean. We are looking forward to the lighter evenings so that we can spend time with Father-in-Law in the gardens and patio areas.

Visited my grandma today at Templemore with my mum for the Easter celebration. The entertainment was fantastic and grandma and I enjoyed having a sing-a-long to the different songs!! It was lovely to see relatives of other residents there enjoying the celebration also. All the staff were very caring and showed obvious warmth and regard for the residents. The food provided in the buffet was also lovely.

Thank you to all staff who made last weekends 'Mother's Day tea party' such an enjoyable event. Lots of residents and their visitors had a lovely buffet, wonderful cakes (as always) made on site, and lots of happy residents-including a couple of gentlemen residents who came over to join in! A big well done for taking so much care to make this a special afternoon.

The management and staff at Templemore Care Home have been looking after my father since May 2016. They have shown a very caring and professional attitude towards him and nothing is too much trouble. He is very happy there and the care home has a relaxing, calming atmosphere and is very clean. They provide plenty of activities for anyone who wants to join in. He enjoys the food and the variety.

My mother Hickman passed away on December 24th 2016, at the grand age of 100+ years. She had been a resident at Templemore for 3+ years. During all that time she was looked after extremely well by all the staff who came into contact with her. She came to regard Templemore as her home, and was happy to be there.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Templemore Care Home for anyone needing care during the whole day. The home is spotlessly clean, the choice of meals perfect, and the attitude of all staff most caring.

Each time is visited mum in Templemore, I've been impressed by how caring and attentive the staff are and how well mum responds to them. They've managed to get her to eat when she initially refused and to calm her down she's been distressed.

The care home provides a very friendly atmosphere, it's extremely clean and well laid out. My mother became a resident 12 months ago, and I've not had one complaint, either from my mother or any of my family who visit her. We can go to visit anytime, personally, when I go, which is at least a couple of times a week, my mum always looks nice, dressed nicely, hair done, clean etc etc. The staff are always helpful, pleasant, and very caring, (with a smile).

They have trips out, only the other week, my mother went to the dog racing. Meal etc, she had a great time!! Something she would have never done when living on her own, they go to the park, out for tea and cakes, garden centres, etc etc. All good !
All in all, it's a happy place, where everyone seems to get on, the staff are cheerful, and it's well run.
I would definitely recommend Templemore, I would make it 9/10 only because nothing is perfect...but my mum is very happy !!!!

My aunt was in 2 previous homes for approximately 2 years. 1 for only 2 months. By comparison, Templemore is top of the list, I visit sometimes twice weekly and never at the same time. The carers and management alike are all friendly and approachable, and will find the time to talk if necessary.
My aunt is not the easiest person to get along with and can at times be rude to the staff. The staff are never fazed by this and understand the reasons for the rudeness. Every carer I have met has been excellent and have proved to be considerate and kind at all times. The home is wonderfully clean and always smells good - one of my complaints of the previous home. Entertainment is first class.

Our Mum was very well looked after here.
She was always happy when we visited, making it pleasant for us all.
We enjoyed many occasions as a family.
She talked as if she was at home. What more can a family wish for.
Thank you.
