Reviews

9.4 Barchester Washington Grange Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.411)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Washington Grange Care Home 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Washington Grange Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 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 4.536 for Barchester Washington Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.536

  • 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 4.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Washington Grange Care Home is based on 7 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). 7 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.875

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

I have been very happy with the care that has been given to my mother since entering the home. Every thing my mother has needed has been taken for her comfort and health. All of the staff have been very caring and helpful to all the family. My mother's room has always been very clean and tidy when we have visited.

Paula Joicey, General Manager at Barchester Washington Grange Care Home responded to this review on 20 Dec 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind words to me and my team it really means a lot to us.
We aim to ensure all our residents feel at home and are well cared for.

Washington Grange is a cut above the rest in our opinion, very trusting, caring, honest staff, prepared to go the extra mile to cater for individual people. Everyone is included in the activities if they want, they have a choice which is excellent. It's not "home" but comes a close second. Very safe environment. Also, the choice of food is very varied, excellent.

I have found the experience for my mum at Washington Grange excellent. But I do think the care home needs more staff/carers.

My Nana has been in this care home for years and she is made to feel at home. All the staff are patient and tend to her needs. She isn't a loud character and never asks for anything. I sometimes think she should ask if she wants her TV on or music, but she doesn't like to bother the staff. The only thing I would improve is that they ask her to move often if she needs things like drinks/moving from bed to chair etc. More often. Overall happy with service.

My mam has been in Washington for 13 years and I couldn't ask for anywhere better. I am informed of everything that goes on and everyone is so friendly, it feels like home. I am made to feel welcome at all times and I would tell everyone how nice the place is.

The staff at Washington Grange care for my dad as if he was one of their own family. They are loving, caring people and I could not ask for any one better to look after him. The home itself is always clean and tidy and my dads meals are good home cooked and he has good variation of food. My dad has dementia and can be awkward at times but the staff cope in a very thoughtful, professional and concerning way. Sometimes I feel the staff do struggle with the work load and may be more staff could be employed to help ease their chores.

A very welcome, friendly, professional and caring home. Great staff and management, especially seniors. Mum is treated like an individual, a friend, a family member. The staff know her likes and dislike, her sense of humour, her vulnerabilities. Mum feels cared for safe and secure which takes a weight off the rest of the family. Mum has an eclectic taste in food whilst it is not always to her liking they will try very hard to give her alternatives. Most of all mum has her most prized possession with her- her cat! She feels totally at home here and I would definitely recommend the home to others.

Thank you so much to all the team at Washington Grange for all of the care & kindness & consideration shown to my father in law & mother in law over the last 5 months or so.
Sadly my father in law passed away a couple of weeks ago & all of the family would like to express their gratitude for the way you handled & the care now being given to my mother in law who has Dementia &
Alzheimers.
You have all shown the that life in a care home can be kind & compassionate & whilst you are all very busy, there is always time to give the family information & news which we are grateful for as we all live in different areas of the country.
With our grateful thanks
