The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Preston Private Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Preston Private Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 4.472 for Preston Private Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.472

  • 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 3.047 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Preston Private Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 21.2 positive Reviews (106 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 21.2 Target = 0.047

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

Reviewer Connection to Preston Private Nursing Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Daughter-in-law of Resident/Service User

My mother in law has been a resident here for almost a year. We chose Preston Private for her care needs because right from our initial enquiries we have experienced warmth, openness and friendliness from all the staff, whether they are carers, admin or domestic staff. We still do. Mum was reluctant to move into the home at first because she wanted to maintain her independence. Over the last year, the staff have got to know her well and mum is now very settled and happy and 'feels she belongs' here. The staff show such unending care and devotion (even at the end of a traumatic 12-hour shift), are empathetic to her needs and show sensitivity to her dignity. We are particularly impressed by how quickly the staff attend to mum's physical health needs and keep us informed and involved in her care. Being in Preston Private has improved the quality of mums life and we are assured that she is cared for in a safe and warm environment.

My mother spent two weeks here after being transferred from hospital, with very limited mobility. Her admission was handled well, with two carers allocated to help her settle in. A nurse took a full and detailed account of my mother's needs. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the room. When I told them that my mother would like a view they changed the room they had intended giving her, to one with a much better view. The staff were consistently kind and helpful and reacted to any concerns we had quickly and efficiently. My mother said the food was ok and sometimes good. She did not try any of the activities. During her time there she had her hair done twice and was given the assistance to enable her to have three showers. If this home had been nearer to where we live I would have had no hesitation in keeping her there. At all times our interactions with the staff here were positive and I felt my mother was well cared for.

My mum has been in Preston Private for three years and has been very happy. She was unable to cope at home (she was not eating or washing and could not make decisions) and I feel she has made friends and has a much better quality of life than she would have at home with carers popping in. This was tried and did not work. The staff are all lovely and welcoming and genuinely care. They are also approachable. There are lots of activities in the home and her room is lovely. It is a pleasure to visit and guests are welcome any time.

The nursing care my father got in PP for the last year of his life (three years ago) was also excellent with the staff on both sections working together so mum and dad could share a twin room. Dad was transferred from another home especially so they could be together and this was beneficial for both of them and lovely to have them back together. Dad had been in care for many years before due to encephalitis and dementia.
