Reviews

9.8 Park Riding has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.805)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Park Riding 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 33 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Park Riding in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.805 for Park Riding is calculated as follows: ( (316 Excellents x 5) + (63 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 385 Ratings = 4.805

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Park Riding is based on 23 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 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 3.2 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.

Tuesday, 14 November's visit was uplifting. The residents were enjoying a 'Nostalgia Morning' with thought-provoking props including memorabilia from the 'Make do and mend' war years. Resident's anecdotes were enlightening and the session provoked lots of laughter. The session ended with the tuneful and word perfect singing of war time favourites, when I thought it couldn't get any better the singing moved on to regional songs linked to the area where residents had lived. Dad was definitely enjoying himself and remembering snippets from his childhood.
My visits are always enjoyable, dad is treated with dignity. The care and support is outstanding. Staff are approachable and helpful.
Dad and his family are so glad we found Park Riding.

I’m truly humbled to read your wonderful review.
I will ensure all the staff read your review.
Thank you so much, and I do hope we keep these standards and strive to exceed your expectations.

Ross.

From the first day, my mother has been made to feel warmly welcome. She has been supported in all her needs, with care, respect and good humour. All the staff treat each resident with great patience and kindness and work hard to maintain their dignity and independence.

Visiting my uncle in Park Riding Care Home has always been a very pleasant experience. The staff are extremely caring and treat the residents as if they were their own relatives. Being 77 years old I have visited quite a lot of care homes to see various friends and relatives but I would describe Park Riding as the best.

I have never come away thinking there was any issue big or small that I needed to contact his daughter about. He is happy there, looks well and really enjoys his food. There is always some activity going on to keep his best interests too. 10/10.

My mother, when entering Park Riding for the first time, was welcomed with open arms from the staff. She suffered from severe arthritis and dementia, which at times, made life difficult for her but the dedicated staff nursed her with sensitivity, empathy and affection and made her feel safe. More importantly, they allow her to retain her dignity.
After five years in residence, sadly my mother passed away. During her final days, myself and all the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren surrounded her with love, and the support from the staff was exemplary. I am eternally grateful.

As a family, we experienced a poor and then a "satisfactory" care home before discovering Park Riding. It is not smart or luxurious and its facilities and entertainments are limited, but of far greater importance is the attitude and ethos of management and staff. They care. We think it is no coincidence that the staff turnover seems to be very low. We have seen few new faces since my aunt went there first in 2010 and then my mother in 2012. Likewise, the residents seem to live to a ripe old age and all look extremely well looked after. Unlike in so many homes, you will not detect even the faintest suggestion of unpleasant aromas as you enter and neither will you need to search for staff. They are with the residents, caring for them, not forever outside on a "fag" break. My mother now refers to Park Riding as "home".

We visit our uncle every few weeks and have never found any reason to complain about the home.
The staff are lovely with both residents and visitors, always doing activities like singing, cards etc.
The place is like home from home.
Our uncle is so happy there and has put back on the weight he had lost.
Lovely place would always recommend it.

Park Riding make Christmas a very special time. Mum looked well and happy. The staff relate well to the residents and are always cheerful. A festive drink was available to all residents and their visitors. Arrangements are made, if possible, for family visits to be made in a quieter and more private area. Residents were involved in creating some of the decorations and the home looked very festive.

Mum has mobility problems and dementia and she is very happy living in Park Riding. She is physically well cared for by the friendly staff and she enjoys the home-cooked meals! Importantly, Mum enjoys the modified language, the banter and a joke with the different members of staff and I so love to hear her laugh. Time is regularly spent by the staff with each resident. The home has a lovely caring, friendly feeling and it looks and smells clean. I find the staff to be approachable and I feel that we work well together with Mum's best interests our joint concern. I am so pleased that Mum feels happy and safe in Park Riding.

I find the staff here at Park Riding to be very friendly, helpful and caring.
They treat the residents with dignity and respect and take time with every person.
People's dietary needs are catered for and cups of tea are 'a plenty'.
The meals look wonderful and I always wish I were staying.
There are plenty of activities to join in with and lots of games to play, books to read or tv to watch or carers to sit and have a cup of tea with.
Park Riding has a friendly, homely feel about it and I would recommend it to anyone.

My mother has been a resident for over 8 years and the care she has received has given me peace of mind. Park Riding is small and homely, giving a feeling of security. Cleanliness is evident and meals are nutritious. The carers are superb as my mother's health has deteriorated. They have treated her with dignity and appealed to her humour, making her laugh and bringing a smile to her face.

This is a wonderfully warm, friendly, happy, and supportive care home. My mother received a lovely welcome on arrival, and personal care and attention throughout her stay. We had looked at other, more expensive, homes in the local area before choosing Park Riding, but knew from our first visit that it would be a far better option and so it proved. Thank you to all the staff at Park Riding for making her last days so happy.

My mother spent the last six months of her life in Park Riding. She was very comfortable and extremely well-cared for. Even though she could be quite difficult at times, the staff were very patient and cheerful with her. When she returned to the home after a hospital stay following a severe stroke, the palliative care made her death very peaceful and I was made to feel welcome at all times by the wonderful team of carers.

I visit my mum regularly in Park Riding. There is always a nice atmosphere when I go in and I am made to feel welcome. My mum and I often sit in a separate room, usually the conservatory and whoever is on duty asks if I would like a drink. The staff are all very pleasant and friendly and often tell me if my mum has done anything, for example, they encouraged my mum to play the piano on one occasion and told me she had enjoyed doing a bit of dancing when some good songs were being played. The staff tell me if anyone has been in to entertain the residents - armchair Zumba for instance where they enjoyed gentle exercise and catching and throwing a ball.
The staff are caring and understanding and they also have a good sense of humour with the residents when it is the right moment.

I was so pleased that we managed to get our auntie into Park Riding. My mum had spent the last 8 months of her life there and we were highly satisfied with the care she received. The staff are so welcoming when we go and we have got to know them quite well. The home is clean also there are no urine smells. Auntie is always clean and tidy and she loves it when she has had her hair done by one of the staff. She likes her room and enjoys her food. The staff have taken some of them out and she has enjoyed that but can't always remember where she has been. We are so glad that she is in a good home for the last few years of her life.

My mother, a resident at Park Riding Care Home has now lived in this delightful home for just over a year and her move from independent living (in Bath) to this residence has been a success, thanks to the wonderful support of the entire care team at Park Riding. She thoroughly enjoys her new life at Park Riding and the help, care and professionalism of all the staff is highly appreciated by all my mother's family. We are more than confident with the support and attention she receives. A truly lovely home.

Angela Hinchliff, Manager at Park Riding responded to this review on 07 Nov 2016:

Thank you for your kind words, I will pass them onto all my staff. It is so lovely to know that we are appreciated.

Following an assessment by the Park Riding management my mother who is nearly blind and very frail at 93 years old moved into Park Riding late April 2016 on a 5 week trial period. The layout in the home is ideally suited to my mother who can only walk with the help of a zimmer frame as she has osteoarthritis. She gets between the rooms and the dining area herself unaided but is attended going up and downstairs with the stairlift. She decides to stay at the home and is always cheerful when I visit her and speaks well of the caring staff. We hope in time to move her into a larger room with more light.

My uncle has been at Park Riding for a few years now. He is 87. Recently he was hospitalised with Pancreatitis. We thought we would lose him but he got better and begged to be allowed to go back to Park Riding. He is so well looked after and cared for. He is not always the easiest as the frustrations of life in a care home weigh on him sometimes, lack of privacy etc, but the staff are good humoured and understand his needs. The manager is an outstanding women and I am sure is largely responsible for the good atmosphere at Park Riding. It is a small care home which can give individual service and I think my Uncle is very fortunate to have ended up there in his final years.

From the outset the management and staff at Park Riding have made us and our mother feel welcome and wanted. Never has anyone expressed the slightest reservation about any requests or suggestions we have made so that we feel, we and mother (the resident) can approach them about the slightest thing/concern/request/suggestion/favour! My mother has an extremely warm, spacious, light and comfortable room with en suite washroom, eats wholesome, tasty meals is developing a nice relaxed relationship with the excellent staff members as well as other residents in spite of her limitations (vascular dementia) and is extremely happy. It's like The Ritz she says!
