Reviews

9.4 Greenways Rest Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.374)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Greenways Rest Home 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Greenways Rest Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.374 for Greenways Rest Home is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (25 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.374

  • 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 Greenways Rest Home is based on 10 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 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 6 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.

My husband moved into this home on the second of October 2017 due to dementia and lack of mobility. The staff are extremely caring and treat each resident as an individual.
He has settled far better than I could believe possible and it is a very comfortable and homely atmosphere. I am very glad I found this home as I do not think I could find better.

My mother has dementia which has worsened significantly since she arrived at the home. I have found the staff to be patient and diligent with my mother whom can be very awkward because of her condition.
I have every confidence and complete trust in the staff and the management of the home.

I am very happy with the care shown to my mother since she moved into the home late 2015. My mother appears to be happy and has praise for all the carers in everything they do for her.
The home is very clean neat and tidy whenever I visit. My mother gets along well with all the residents she enjoys the tasty meals too! She especially enjoys the entertainment by visiting artists and joins in the singing. She also participates in any activities in the home. I am happy that my mother is living in a home that is secure too.

I have always been satisfied with the care my Mum has received while she has been at Greenways. Caring for people with dementia is not to be under-estimated and I have great respect for the staff here who provide a good level of care in a safe environment. My Mum's care plan has changed over the years due to her deterioration, both with her dementia and general health. However, the manager/manageress have always prioritised her needs and bent over backwards in order for her to return to "her home" following hospital admission and provide her with every comfort they are able by implementing any changes to her care plan that have been recommended by hospital staff, due to changes in her health.

The physical and pastoral care my mother received at Greenways is excellent. All members of staff are caring and appropriately affectionate. The activities are varied and age relevant and everyone is encouraged to join in. Her medical care is regularly reviewed with myself and I am consulted and included in all relevant decisions. The staff are welcoming to family and friends and are always willings to have a chat about any concerns I may have regarding mum's diet (diabetic).

After a less than satisfactory previous placement, Greenways is a breath of fresh air.
The staff are all friendly and really care about and respect the residents. The home is run with a good routine but still retains a homely attitude.
There are activities that the residents can participate in every day and visitors such as singers to keep them entertained.
Anything slightly challenging is dealt with efficiently and with no fuss.
All of this helps both the resident and the family members to relax with their situation.

My mum stopped here for 10 days respite. The staff where brilliant, so much so mum normally does not like to go into respite but she has stated she would return. All the staff treated the residents with the utmost respect.
