Reviews

9.8 Dryclough Manor has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.753)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Dryclough Manor is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Dryclough Manor in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.753 for Dryclough Manor is calculated as follows: ( (179 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.753

  • 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 Dryclough Manor is based on 13 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 8.4 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.

Mum is looked after by people who genuinely care for her and treat her with respect and dignity. They believe she has the right to be looked after now she has reached the stage in her life where she can no longer do this for herself. These qualities are displayed by all the staff, manager, care staff, cleaners, cook, laundry and caretaker etc...
They are always cheerful and welcoming and mum is happy there. We are able to trust them implicitly which means we can get on with our own lives safe in the knowledge that mum too is experiencing a quality of life.

Could not have chosen a better place for my neighbour. She has been delighted with her room from the first day. Staff go out of their way to be helpful and pleasant.
The home itself is very appealing with all the new decorating.
I always look on the board at meals for the day. They are varied and what most people would make for themselves at home.
Definitely a 'home from home'.

The first couple of weeks were a bit daunting for me in the care home and it took some time for me to adapt to being here.
However, I do enjoy living here now.
The staff are always pleasant and treat me with respect.

Mum has only been at Dryclough since the end of May. She seems to have settled in well. Dryclough is far superior to where Mum was previously. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

I have had some issues with the laundry with cloths etc being misplaced. On the whole, I'm very happy and would recommend Dryclough to friends and family.

Dad was reluctant about going into care. Choosing a home would prove to be difficult, however, we knew dad would be happy here the moment we stepped into the home. I was bright, spacious and more importantly, it was caring and homely. The managers and care staff went out of their way to ensure dad was settled in. The care he receives is second to none and dad has gained weight since coming into Dryclough Manor and said: "he wishes he had done it sooner".

I'm impressed with the care and attitude that all the staff (from cleaners to top position) show to my relative and all of the residents. It is a genuine place with no hidden agendas. Whenever we appear for a visit they know exactly where my mother-in-law is and what she has been doing that day. A very good care home.

I was very worried about putting my brother-in-law in a home and he was adamant he was only staying for a few weeks. But he had only been in 2 days and he told me he was not going back home. On the Tuesday he has a massive coronary, stopped breathing and was gone but the staff started CPR and continued until the paramedics arrived and still carried on. He is now back from Manchester Hospital with a balloon in his artery. They saved his life.
All the staff wonderful. The food is superb. He looks so well and happy. I can't praise them enough. I think they should get some kind of award.

Mum was very apprehensive about taking a step into residential care. I took her to have a look around prior to making any decisions. The home was clean, inviting and staff were very welcoming as were many of the other residents. My mum says she feels safe and well cared for. She enjoys the daily activities and loves the food. She looks happy, the first time for a long time and I am able to rebuild my life knowing she is getting the best possible care.
