Reviews

9.1 Simon Marks Court has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.118)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Simon Marks Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Simon Marks Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.493 for Simon Marks Court is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 73 Ratings = 4.493

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Simon Marks Court is based on 5 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.625

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

Each one of the staff here were tremendous. They were always polite and courteous and we observed the time, care and patience they had with the residents.
The facilities here are brilliant, lounges and even a real-life street lining the corridors. A wide range of activities our aunt especially enjoyed the wartime movies and music. Based in Scotland, there were times when I felt like I was being a pain and to a degree perhaps I was, given I was never off the phone or email but in no way did any of the staff make me feel as though I was.
For reasons I am unable to explain here, the entire team went above and beyond in ensuring our aunt was not left without and perhaps in some instances, their true dedication to their work and compassion for their residents meant they went above and beyond. We have not only lost our aunt but at the same time, it does feel as though we have lost a fair few friends now that we no longer visit Simon Marks Court. Thank you all on behalf of the family and our aunt.

There are not enough words to describe how delighted I have been with the care provided by Simon Marks Court over the last 5 years. Every aspect from the very first day that my mum came into the care home to the very last has been totally professional, caring and loving. I cannot praise the work done by the Staff at Simon Marks Court enough, they are a credit to your organisation.

If I am ever in need of care, I would consider myself fortunate to find myself in such a home as Simon Marks Court.

To be honest I was not looking forward to visiting my sister in the nursing home. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very welcoming, her room was lovely and bright and was like home from home.
I saw a big improvement in my sister and she looked happy and relaxed.
After making the long journey from Blackpool, we are always offered refreshments by staff, who are always on hand to help and have a chat. We now have peace of mind knowing my sister is safe when we are so far away.

Mum is happy here. Few niggles which were sorted out immediately. Staff do a good job in hard circumstances, but there seems to be a large turnover of staff and lots of agency staff.
