Reviews

9.7 The Clough has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.685)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for The Clough 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Clough in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 The Clough is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Clough is based on 7 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 6.4 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.

Thank you Elaine for your review. We very much appreciate it.

The Clough is the ideal solution for my mother who is going on 92. The home is clean - food is excellent and the staff are fabulous - very caring and sympathetic to the issues of the elderly and infirm. Myself/brother or sister who is a district nurse are all in agreement it's 10 out of 10. The manager and all staff fab. In a lovely setting with good grounds and facility for sitting out in the gardens.

Dad is 98 and up til 3 months ago lived at home independently, this was getting harder and harder for our family to cope. We placed Dad in the Clough for respite and he has stayed there ever since, giving us the family peace of mind. We are extremely happy with the love and care Dad receives. He loves his meals, he always looks smart and clean. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff they are all very attentive, friendly, patient, caring and kind. It's like being in one big happy family. We are so pleased we chose the Clough.

Hi Beverly, thank you for submitting your review. We are pleased you are happy with your choice of care home.

We as a family, are delighted with the care our mother receives at The Clough. Whenever we visit, which is very frequently, the atmosphere is lovely, like one big family. The carers and management are excellent and always welcome any discussion we wish to have regarding Mum. Our Father, who is also elderly is welcomed with open arms when he visits and he often stays to lunch. Any concerns we may have about Mums health or well being are always dealt with immediately with compassion and understanding. We would 'HIGHLY' recommend The Clough to anyone looking for a care home for their relative. The peace of mind we have is comforting.

Thank you, Janet, we agree that relatives having peace of mind whilst loved ones are in our care is one of the most important things to them.

The staff are always helpful and caring. Residents are treated with dignity. Nothing is too much work for them.
Each resident is dealt with separately - concerns that they have are resolved. E.g. Mum lost her 'bag' and immediately the staff looked for it and replaced the battery in her hearing aid immediately. Little things mean a lot!

Hi Carol, your lovely comments are very welcome by all the staff at the home, thank you.

I have always found the staff to be very caring and efficient in their duties; always friendly and approachable.
The home seems well-managed with very high standards of hygiene and cleanliness maintained. My mother has been a resident here for eight months now and has settled in nicely - she seems totally at home!
She is happy here, is eating well and is always well dressed and healthy looking when ever I come to visit.
I would definitely recommend The Clough as a residential care home of choice.

Thank you, Chris for your comments they are much appreciated by the team.

My Mum was 105 in June 2017, she has been in the home since just before her 100th birthday. She entered at a very low point in her life and it is my belief that the care she has received by the staff over the last 5 years at the home is the reason she is still with us today.
I love visiting her at The Clough because of its friendly atmosphere.

Thank you, Charles, for your positive comments on our service the staff will appreciate it. As we all agree your mother is remarkable for her age and is very much part of our 'family' at The Clough.

My mum has been a resident in The Clough for 10 months, she is 94 and dreaded going into care. However, she has loved the carers from her first day and now regards it as her home, where she is surrounded by an atmosphere of loving care and patience. All the staff adapt to her mood swings, by chatting and sharing jokes most days, or simply talking quietly other days. It is very noticeable that she is treated with dignity and offered many choices which are extremely important to her.

Thank you for your positive comments about our home. I know that you visit your mum frequently and you are very supportive of the home as well as your mum, who is a pleasure to care for. I know the staff team will appreciate your comments about the care that they deliver to your mum.

This is a lovely, clean and spacious home with delicious home cooked food. We have always found the staff to be kind, caring and professional at all times both with their residents and visitors. As mums conditions deteriorated my sister and I could not fault their specialised care she has and the support we received from Manager and staff.

Thank you Christine for such a wonderful review. It is very satisfying for all the team to know how pleased you are with everything since your mother came to live at The Clough

During my visit of 3 months to Bolton I was visiting my sister on a daily basis. At all times I witnessed excellent staff care, meals served promptly and presented so invitingly. Cleanliness always a priority. Most days arriving early in the morning around 9am. Residents rooms are cleaned and residents washed/dressed either finishing breakfast or gathered in lounge or library. Overall excellent residential care home.
