Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Harry Priestley House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.763 for Harry Priestley House is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.763

  • 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 Harry Priestley 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 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 2.4 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.

9.5 Harry Priestley House has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.513) from 10 Reviews

The house is very clean and tidy, I like all the staff because they are very friendly and kind.
The food is very nice and I like trying new things like broccoli and sprouts if I want too.

I would highly recommend this care facility to anyone who wants the best for there family. The staff at Harry Priestley House are always welcoming and offer the highest standard of care whilst respecting the dignity of the residents. They like to keep you up to date on your relatives activities, any health issues, also their individual care plan and needs with regular updates sent by post if you're not able to visit. They send regular invitations to group activities within the grounds of the home. Working in the care industry myself and having a resident at Harry Priestley House since they first opened, this home is the best I have come across with my 11 years experience working in care. The resident's bedroom can be made to feel like their own, they offer holidays and excursions catered to the resident's capabilities. They are all like a family, both the residents and the staff. They always have lots of staff on duty at the home, so you never feel a resident's needs are not being met.
