Reviews

8.1 Holmewood has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.073)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Holmewood is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holmewood in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 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 4.917 for Holmewood is calculated as follows: ( (22 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.156 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holmewood is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.156

  • 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 Holmewood

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

I have just spent two weeks at home in Keighley from Australia.
My father was in Holmewood and still is, due to a fall at home.
I cannot thank the staff enough for the kindness they showed towards him but more so the kindness and support they showed to me whilst I was there.
I would recommend this care facility to anyone and only wish dad could stay there.
Once again thank you.

It is a pleasure to be able to sing the praises of a unit totally focused on their patients.
My Mum was admitted to Holmewood from hospital after suffering a broken hip and wrist after a fall. As Mum has moderate mixed dementia, hospital was a confusing and frightening place and although the staff cared for Mum as best they could, they were not equipped to help with her mental state whilst in their care.

Mum was transferred to Holmewood, a resource centre in Keighley and after just one night we noticed a difference in her mood and awareness. The staff care for the whole person, not a 'broken hip' as in hospital. Within two days Mum was sleeping without waking up distressed, was calm and responded well to all the carers who visited her in her room. They encouraged and guided her to be more confident and independent, gave support where needed and even looked out for my Dad too. Dad was happy to leave Mum in the care of their staff, and go home because he knew she was 'safe'.
When you walk into Holmewood, there is an air of calm, quiet efficiency and determination to provide the best care for their patients.
My family were amazed that after two weeks at Holmewood. Mum was ready to move back home, with ongoing care worked out with the community ACT, to enable Mum to manage at home. We are so grateful for the help and advice given to us, carefully explained and recorded by the OT staff in conference with the Health providers and District nurses. We have no reservations about recommending Holmewood to anyone who has a relative or friend in need of care after hospital to aid in their return home.

A truly remarkable jewel in our district. Thank you all very much.
