Reviews

9.5 Priceholme has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.477)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Priceholme 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Priceholme in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.477 for Priceholme is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.477

  • 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 Priceholme is based on 8 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 6.6 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.

My friend enjoys the privacy of his own room, securing in the knowledge that caring staff are never far away. The staff provide a high standard of nursing care (and a friendly word with visitors too!). The home is spotless and well maintained. The food is excellent but there is always new training and initiatives to improve things for the residents. I can't praise it enough.

Jean Hall, Home Manager at Priceholme responded to this review on 11 Jan 2018:

Many thanks for your lovely comments and thank you for all your support over the years.

Priceholme is an excellent care home. My friend has his needs met by staff who are consistently kind and caring. I feel welcome when I visit and have seen that respect is given to all residents and visitors.
There is a great activity programme operating and the food and drink provided are of high quality. The home is clean, warm and comfortable.
If I needed a care home myself I would choose this one.

For the money I pay - the food is terrible. Always short staffed. Tablets which are supposed to be taken with food come 30 mins to 1 hour later. Mostly kept very clean and tidy. Staff who are here are wonderful - except for the kitchen.

Kerry Smith, Area manager at Priceholme responded to this review on 19 Dec 2017:

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased that you find the staff wonderful. We would very much like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your other concerns in more detail, please could you contact us if you would like this to be arranged?

During the last few months standards at the home have been steadily improving. Communication is more effective between staff and myself/my father.

Everything is being done to make my dad as comfortable/happy as possible.

Cleaning is now of a high standard but en-suite attached to dad's room has no effective heating system.

Staff genuinely care about residents and work extremely hard.

When visiting the staff are always very welcoming and caring, it feels like a home.

I had to take my mum for an eye clinic appointment 20 miles from the home which meant she fell out of the usual routine at the home for refreshments and medication. On our return, she was in some discomfort (the appointment was treatment for macular degeneration entailing an injection in to the eye) and staff very quickly brought her a cup of tea and paracetamol and ensured she received a little extra 'tlc' when I had to leave to return home, 45 miles distance away.

Thank you for your kind comments, we take great pleasure in caring for our residents here at Priceholme.
We hope that you enjoy being part of our wider family.
With kind regards, Martin.

Unfortunately, my mother has now passed away but I must take this opportunity to thank the staff at Priceholme for providing a first class service.
Prior to retirement, I worked in social services and am well aware of the situations in a lot of care homes. Priceholme was the exception in providing exemplary care on all occasions and I am very thankful for all they did.

Thank you for your kind comments.
We are pleased that we were able to offer exceptional care for your mother. It was our privilege to care for her. She is remembered fondly in the home.

The home is well run by committed staff who were always friendly, helpful and sympathetic to mum's needs. They kept us informed and were always on hand when needed. The home is clean, and whenever we visited, there were always plenty of staff around who seemed to interact very well with residents. If anything, her room was a bit on the small side and lacking en-suite bath/shower facilities but did have adequate wash basin and toilet. We were very happy with the standard of care she received in the 2 years she was there, only moving her to be nearer to the rest of the family. Thank you Priceholme.
