Reviews

8.9 Millbeck has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.868)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Millbeck is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Millbeck in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.451 for Millbeck is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.451

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Millbeck is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.667

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

My aunt who has dementia moved to Millbeck as she was unable to cope at home after her husband died. Since moving into Millbeck she still struggles with her dementia and forgets her husband has died and wondering why she can't go home. The staff have supported her through difficult times and she is more alert, takes part in group activities and is eating much better. She can't always remember why she is living at Millbeck but she always says the staff are very kind, the food is lovely and if she has to be in a home she could not be in a better place.

I attended the 'Millbeck's Got Talent Show' and BBQ on Saturday July 22nd. The event was truly inspirational. The manager, her deputy, the activities co-ordinator, along with the staff and the chef had done an amazing job in engaging the residents in such a wonderful experience, followed by an excellent meal. The residents sang, played percussion instruments and one read a poem. The staff also joined in the entertainment.

The effort and care taken to involve the residents was amazing, the whole room was filled with smiles and laughter. The experience has really motivated my mum and helped her feel part of a special group.

The friendliness, care and devotion of the staff makes Millbeck feel more like a family than a care home. I do not live in the Norton area but I would never dream of moving Mum closer as Millbeck cannot be matched for its level of care and dedication towards its residents.

My mum is a resident at Millbeck Residential Home in Norton and we initially went to view it, as it was highly recommended by a friend who's mum had also been a resident. She spoke very highly about it and how right she was. Mum moved in eight months ago and she absolutely loves it. It has been the best thing that could have happened to her after my dad died and left her a widow in her late 70s. Since she moved in, she has chosen to spend Christmas Day, Easter and Mothers Day with her new friends in Millbeck, as she now thinks of it as her home. I have just come back from a summer barbeque and 'Millbecks got Talent' afternoon where once again the staff have gone massively above and beyond anyone's expectations to make a day that is really special, not only for the residents but the families as well. Everyone is welcome and it really is one big community. The food is very good and the staff are excellent, giving every resident the time and respect that they deserve as individuals. First Class.
