Reviews

8.7 Layden Court Care Home has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.667)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Layden Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Layden Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.161 for Layden Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (78 Goods x 4) + (26 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.161

  • 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 4.506 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Layden Court Care Home is based on 9 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 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.506

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

Thank you, David, for your feedback about your experience at Layden Court Care Home. We are pleased to hear it has been so positive. Have a wonderful day.

As my wife has only just been placed in Layden Court, she is adjusting to her new surroundings. She is paralysed down her right-side and has also lost her speech, I find the staff welcoming and kind to my wife, the nursing sister is very polite and handles my wife well, with a very good bedside manner.

I chose Layden Court Care Home for my wife's care needs almost by gut feeling and have never had cause to regret my choice. The care staff are compassionate, skilled in what they do and are eager to communicate any changes to my wife's care needs. They are managed so that my wife has a consistency in staff member caring for her. They are pro active with regard to calling for an expert opinion when needed. The care plan is updated continuously. I would unreservedly recommend it to friends and neighbours should the need ever arise.

In general, I am satisfied with the care shown.
The food would be better if hotter, served on warm plates would help.
If possible a better choice of tea time sandwiches would be preferred.
The staff are very friendly and caring but pushed for time, especially on a night.

Thank you, Roy, for your comments about your recent experience at Layden Court Care Home. Our residents’ wellbeing is our main priority and it is great to hear that you were so pleased with the quality of our care. Have a fantastic day.

I have found the care staff at Layden Court (Berks Unit) to be very good, very caring and professional. In fact, all the staff are very good and I feel my wife is in a caring environment.

The food is generally quite good, but some of the options are a little strange.

All in all a very good care home with excellent management.

Improvement in quality and quantity of food but still a lack of fruit in diet, therefore being brought in each week.
Overall, standard of care is good, with friendly, caring staff. There have been problems with delays in clothes coming back from the laundry and also the wrong items, belonging to other residents, being given to my father.

Thank you for your comments. Your satisfaction is our top priority and we are happy to pass along your comments to the team here at Layden Court Care Home. All of our staff are committed to providing the best possible care experience for all of our residents and it is very rewarding to have their efforts recognised.

My mum initially came in on respite in March which turned into permanent care. Staff were very friendly and informative on arrival and listened to Mums likes and dislikes, which has continued since she has been there.
She is treated with dignity and respect by all staff and they allow her to keep her independence as much as possible which is very important to her. She enjoys the food choices and has gained weight and better health while there. The manager, reception, seniors, carers and housekeeping have an open door policy and will always promptly answer any queries. There are daily activities and regular visiting entertainers which mum enjoys.
It was a very hard decision for Mum to go into care but I couldn't have made a better choice and I can sleep soundly knowing she is happy and well cared for.

My dad was in Layden for a total of 22 weeks respite care in 2014/15, then was in nursing care for the last week of his life in 2016. The staff were friendly and kind, and always did their best for him. A very friendly, homely place.

The manager was very friendly and helpful and was eager to show me around prior to my brother going in the home for respite. On arrival staff were very welcoming and they were very caring,chatty and couldn't do enough to help my brother settle in. Although he has only been there a couple of days I was pleased with first impressions gained from my visits.

My sister-in-law has a difficult life and can sometimes be un-cooperative. However the staff show great patience and understanding. The staff will encourage her to speak in return to their queries. Her speech has improved very much. She has made friends with the staff and will have a laugh and a joke. My sister-in-law with help and persuasion will now volunteer to be showered and changed into normal day clothes. This has extended interests in her daytime life of which we are all grateful.
