Reviews

9.2 Leycester House has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.181)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Leycester House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Leycester House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.431 for Leycester House is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.431

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Leycester House is based on 6 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 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.750

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

The care given in the home was excellent and all the staff were very hard working and dedicated. They made such a difference to my mum and she really improved her mobility and general wellbeing whilst in their care. The only improvement would be as regards to bathrooms which lacked showers and could do with some modernisation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leycester House.

I am very happy as a resident in Leycester House. The staff are caring, kind and attentive. They meet my needs and are flexible. My room is well maintained, regularly cleaned and cheerful. The food is home cooked and tasty, the menus are varied. Facilities are adequate and although there are no en-suite bedrooms, there are plenty of toilets in easy reach. I am here as a temporary resident due to a food operation so hope to go home soon. However, I have no hesitation in recommending this care home to others.

I am here primarily to be with my wife due to feet problems. 90 years old I do have dementia and can only thank the staff for their readiness to help with her personally or medically.
The food and accommodation are fine. How everyone remembers our names is outstanding as I have trouble remembering my own. Thank you Leycester House.

Notwithstanding the need for a refurbishment, that alone is cosmetic, the quality of care is excellent.
My mother, an articulate lady of 95, moved in on September 15th and has felt extremely secure within the home.
There is a high level of staffing and each very attentive.
There are other homes that may be smarter however at the end of the day it must be about the quality of care.
Leycester House scores highly.

My mother has always enjoyed going to Leycester House - as day care and now full-time. She enjoys the banter with the staff, who are exceptional in their understanding of the old, infirm, confused clients. They are wonderful how they deal with the care with such dedication and commitment. The home is managed by two wonderful dedicated members of staff, always available to assist with queries and problems. The chef provides a superb service (my mother's words). All in all such a nice 'home from home' place to live. We are so lucky to have such a great facility in the community. We need more like Leycester House.

Thank you for taking the time to share your views with us. Our team will be delighted to hear this lovely feedback and to know that their dedication is appreciated so much.

I have been very pleased with the care provided for my father in Leycester House since he became a resident in November 2015. He settled very quickly and seems very content. There is a cheerful and caring atmosphere within the home, the staff appear to enjoy working there and seem genuinely concerned for the welfare of the residents. Based on my visits, the home seems to be well run, is clean and all the facilities are satisfactory.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this review. We are delighted to hear that your father has settled well at Leycester House and we really appreciate the comments regarding the commitment of our staff. They do work extremely hard and it's hearing feedback like this that makes it all worthwhile!

I am extremely happy for my mother to live at Leycester House Care Home in Mobberly. I live only a mile away from the home so it is perfect for me to visit her. She is well cared for and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Her room and the furnishings are fine and are well cleaned,, her clothing is laundered every day and she herself is kept clean and well fed. She is encouraged to join in various activities with the other residents.
About three years ago, while my mother was still living independently, I took her to an open day at Leycester House and she said if she was to be looked after, Leycester House would be her choice. I am very happy to think that she is where she chose to be.

Thanks so much for this lovely review. We really appreciate your taking the time to provide this feedback and our team will be delighted to hear that your mum has settled well at Leycester House.

Whilst mum was at Leycester House she was happy and very well cared for. She delighted in having her bubble baths.
The staff were kind, caring and nothing was too much trouble for them. I also received help and advice in a situation I had never been before with no other siblings to bounce off.
