Reviews

7.7 The Parklands Care Home has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.679)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for The Parklands Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Parklands Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.554 for The Parklands Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.554

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Parklands Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

This is the best care home my dad has been in. The carers are brilliant. The home manager is very approachable and hands on.
My dad's care is second to none. Best home out of the 4 he has been in. The food is excellent and rooms are homely and spotless.

Used the home for respite, he was very well cared for, the staff took time to find out his needs and how he would like to be cared for. Considering at home he doesn't want to do much, within the 2 weeks he went on a trip, won a quiz and made new friends. We were also worried about his weight loss but put on 4lb as he loved the food and came home with recipes he had got from the cook. I can't fault this home, patient and understanding staff who really care, a wonderful setting and you can really feel genuine warmth and happiness whilst in the home. Dad has booked himself in every month now for short breaks from one night up to 6 the manager supported us throughout.

I had a friend in Parklands who I visited, she always seemed happy and the staff were always busy making sure everyone was ok. The home has a lovely feel and it's clear that the staff care about the residents. The home was always clean and well presented.
I asked the manager of I could bring my nan to Parklands for the afternoon, when I saw the George Formby tribute had been arranged.

She loved it, as did all of the other residents, it was interactive, everyone singing, the staff dancing with the residents (who were able)

Arranging things like this is important for the elderly as it brings fun and enjoyment to their day. Different people to talk to etc.

My nan commented on how lovely the home was and how good the staff were. She had a lovely day.

I am satisfied with the care my mother receives at this home. The staff without exception are excellent and show great respect and love to mother. She enjoys the food generally, her bath/shower is loved by her and the cleanliness of the home is good. Obviously there are sometimes issues which i need to sort out i.e. bed making, sloppy- mother not dressed correctly. However this does not happen regularly. The manager is excellent and deals with any problems immediately. Nothing in life is perfect but this home is a happy place in which mother feels safe and content.

My grandma was in Parklands until she sadly passed away. She soon settled in, her room was very cosy. Lovely views over the park, the residents used to enjoy feeding the birds and the squirrels used to come to the bird table on a daily basis. the staff where all good at there jobs . They always keep them occupied with dominoes, bingo, cards and other activities which my grandma loved, she especially enjoyed the day trips she went on, and the pub lunches they went on. My grandma loved it when they used to have singers come in, was lovely to see all the residents joining in. One member off staff was excellent, so caring and dedicated to her job, she meant the world to my grandma. The home was very clean, lovely staff and residents, would defiantly recommend

My grandma settled in very well into Parklands which was a great relief to us as a family. All the staff are very kind and caring and clearly love the job they do. They did a fantastic job of looking after my grandma and made the family feel very welcome every time we visited,we went daily. The entertainment for the residents is second to none. Something was happening daily i.e. bingo, dominoes, crafts, and many day trips are organised too. I would like to thank all staff for their love and care and would highly recommend Parklands to others. Putting your loved ones into a home is one of the most difficult decisions you'll ever make but all staff were so supportive initially and throughout her stay. Thank you.

Putting my mother in Parklands has probably saved her life. She in ill health and is suffering from dementia. Her quality of life is much improved, she is happier. The staff are all caring, kind and understanding, which is hard as my mum is difficult at times. Right from the manager to the cleaners we now know them almost as a member of our family. We have already recommended Parklands to friends.
