Reviews

9.3 Abraham House has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.286)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Abraham House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abraham House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.869 for Abraham House is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.869

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abraham House is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.667

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

My mother has been a resident at this care home for almost two years and every time I have visited her, which is three or four times a week, I always find the staff very caring towards all the residents. Nothing is too much trouble for them, even when some of the residents are being awkward, they always find a way to get them to do the things they want them to do, in a quiet unassuming way.

Great staff that are always calm and understanding with the residents which is very reassuring (as a relative). Everyone is friendly and although busy, they always have time to speak to residents and staff and help with any concerns as they arise. Thanks.

My Mother in law's been a resident of Abraham House for three months. All the staff have been excellent from our initial enquiries about the home, to the assessment of my mother in law and subsequent admission. Abraham House has a homely atmosphere, several large windowed sitting rooms and a well-kept garden. Staff have taken time to try and get to know the person Mum was before she had Dementia and care of all the residents is carefully tailored to their individual needs. There are always staff members in all the rooms encouraging the residents to take part in activities and generally interacting with them and frequent entertainers etc who visit. Thanks to the very caring staff my Mother in law has settled well and it is so reassuring that she is in such a safe, caring environment. The Manager and all of the staff have been very empathic to our family throughout this difficult period which helped us enormously. We would have no hesitation in recommending Abraham House to other families.

My dad has Vascular Dementia that causes behaviour problems, anger, sadness, paranoia etc. We tried to place him in homes in and around Preston but with no luck. Then the manager of Abraham House came along and gave my dad a place in her home. He started to settle down well because he knew they really cared about him. The care he was given was wonderful. Then he had a fall and is now back in hospital and cannot go back to Abraham house. It's sad to see him now as he's had to leave the people he come to trust and care for him. You can do no better than this home, it's the best home for care and love in Preston. Thank you all xxxx

My parent has been at home for the past six years at Abraham House. It was chosen for the warmth of welcome and safe environment that it exhibits. The Nurses have always been open to listen and act quickly on any opinions and ideas we have expressed to improve the quality of my father's life. We are assured by the 24hour security and care given at Abraham House.
We are encouraged and assisted to maintain as much independence for my father as possible with dignity.
All staff without exception reflect loving kindness to their patients in trying difficult circumstances, which can be understood by the nature of the illnesses.The Nurses never forgetting the Loving Kindness which is of immeasurable value of which there is an abundance at Abraham House. I would like to commend the nurses.

As again all who are involved in my father's care...Thank you.
