9.6 Pennystone Court has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.639)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Pennystone Court 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pennystone Court 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 4.806 for Pennystone Court is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pennystone Court 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.833

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

Pennystone Court offers a comfortable and safe environment for its residents, and has a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.

I have found the staff to be helpful and friendly and look after the residents with care and attention. The residents have a lovely lounge and pleasant dining room and the bedrooms are a good size and well decorated.

Mum suffers from Alzheimer's and only moved into Pennystone Court just over 2 weeks ago. In that short amount of time, she has become much brighter and we can no have a conversation with her. She will even have a smile and a laugh now.
I know that she enjoys the meals and has clearly put some weight back on.
Overall I am sure that she has benefited from being in the very caring environment that Pennystone Court provides.

I appreciate very much all the effort that the staff put in to make me comfortable and content, even in difficult circumstances for themselves. I am very happy here and my family and friends are treated very well when they come to visit.
I have made friends with other residents and staff and we all enjoy the activities and entertainment and companionship with each other.
Thank you for all your efforts.

My mum was in Pennystone Court for 2 years. She had Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. and my sister and I agonised a lot before we made the big decision to get mum more care. We tried one other before Pennystone, but she then moved here. It was the best decision we could have made. Mum had her own private flat, with en-suite and plenty of room for a couple of big comfy chair for visitors. Anyone could visit 24/7 and they were always made welcome. The staff were tremendous and checked on mum very regularly, and you could tell from the notes that they cared. Pennystone has a great blend of activities for residents to join in with (singing, quizzes, visiting, Bingo etc), whilst not forcing everyone to join in. Mum was very happy there and made some great friends along the way, both staff and residents, and you could see how much they cared. Her great-grandchildren were welcomed by all, and the place has a lovely happy vibe about it. The care she got towards the end of her life was superb.
