The Gables Care Home, Middlesbrough, Cleveland & Teesside

The Gables prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers concentrate on getting to know you and your loved one, enabling professionals to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support you and your family need. The Gables accept that choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and are here to help you through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

Care workers support an active lifestyle alongside professional care as part of a core mission, they endeavour to ensure that both residents and visitors enjoy their time spent at the home. They have all of the usual benefits of a care home environment, including en suite rooms, excellent communal spaces and areas for residents to enjoy quiet times, by themselves or with their families.

Professionals also offer excellent activities at the home, which offer stimulation and engagement to all residents. An activities co-ordinator works with individuals to ensure that they offer activities that will suit each person and sometimes this means that one to one activity is more appropriate than group activities.

Reviews

9.2 The Gables Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.166)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for The Gables Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Gables Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.697 for The Gables Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 175 Ratings = 4.697

  • 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 4.469 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Gables Care Home is based on 6 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.469

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

My Mum has been a resident of The Gables Care Home for almost 18 months. The standard of care and nursing she receives is second to none. The staff are diligent and really care about their residents. Mum is treated with respect and dignity at all times. Mum can no longer live at home but this is the next best option.

The care received by my mother was of the highest calibre. Nothing was too much trouble, though at times my mother didn't like to trouble the staff as she knew they were busy. When my mother was unwell or was taken to hospital either myself or my sister were informed immediately. I would say the food at times was very repetitive and unimaginative. I know the management has been trying to secure more suitable staff. Following the sudden death of my mother, the management and staff were once again amazing and I could not have asked for better support during this sad and stressful time.

Mum moved in for end of life care, not wanting to come to a nursing home, but after a couple of days of excellent, attentive care she settled and was relaxed.

The home is bright and friendly, the staff had time to get to know Mum and her nursing requirements. She died a pain-free, peaceful death in part due to the care received. As a family, we would recommend The Gables.

My sister was moved for better nursing care, which she got. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Unfortunately, my sister only lasted a few weeks and died. But the staff could not do enough to help or to make sure she was clean, tidy and very well cared for.
She only had to ask for something and she could have it, we could visit anytime day or night and were sent for if they were worried about her. She was checked constantly, I wish she'd been in this home a lot sooner, she would have enjoyed it. Many thanks to all the staff.

My brother was in The Gables care home for a short period of time. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. Any problem was seen to straight away. My brother also enjoyed the meals. The care he received was second to none.

My mother was transferred from the local hospital following a stroke. The care home response was excellent from the Manager down. Overall staff members I came in contact with were caring, thoughtful and sympathetic. Whilst it was clear Mother was fast approaching the end of her life, all the staff went above and beyond what I would have expected with dealing with her. Relieved and pleased with her treatment.

The standard of care given to my uncle is of excellence. The staff go the extra mile with care, compassion and a "can do" attitude- nothing is a trouble. They take a proactive approach coupled with delivering and attending to personal dignity clients and take time to understand individual needs. They recognize the value of family and we are made to feel very welcome being offered refreshment and comfort after long journeys. The team and care manager has been key in helping our uncle to settle, feel safe, cared for and comfortable. Thanks.

My husband was transferred from hospital on 27/1/16 until discharge on 16/2/16. He is unable to communicate because of his dementia and motor neurone. My husband was treated with the utmost respect. The staff and nursing staff were all very supportive. Nothing was any trouble. I had an operation the day before my husband was transferred, their support and kindness to me was brilliant. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Gables Nursing Home. I would be happy to have my husband stay there again. Thank you to all concerned.
