Reviews

9.9 Wansbeck Care Home has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.868)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Wansbeck Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wansbeck Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.868 for Wansbeck Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (413 Excellents x 5) + (63 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 476 Ratings = 4.868

  • 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 Wansbeck Care Home is based on 20 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). 20 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

Ronnie Cavanagh, Digital Marketing Executive at Wansbeck Care Home responded to this review on 22 Aug 2017:

Thank you for your comments. We always appreciate individuals taking the time to give their feedback and we are very pleased to hear that your experience was so positive. All of our staff are committed to providing the best possible care experience for all of our residents and it is very rewarding to have their efforts recognised.

I was pleased to see mam in the lounge interacting with others. She'd been to the hairdressers and had her hair done, she was in good spirits and full of chat. The carers do a fabulous job at Wansbeck and are all dedicated to their job. They always go above and beyond in all they do. Mam is always clean and tidy when I visit.

The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. They are very caring and attentive to my sister's needs looking after her sensitively and appropriately. The care home is always very clean and welcoming. The new sitting area outside (enclosed for safety) is a lovely addition and the ladies all had their sun hats on when I came to visit today.

After 9 and a half years living at Wansbeck Care Home, I continue to see the dedicated care given to my aunt from all the staff who always meet and embrace her personal needs. Despite her frailty and progressive dementia, they still ensure she is able to enjoy life be it from the happy approach of the carers, the food and treats. She enjoys or simply being involved in daily activities where appropriate. On my weekly visit, she always appears happy and content.

After initially visiting this home my husband and I were warmly greeted and shown around the home.
We were looking to find a home for a 95-year-old lady who we looked after.
After visiting other homes in the area we were very fortunate to be told a room had become available.
The staff and management have all made this lady feel welcome and cared about.
After some distressing times this lady, after a week, says she is, in her words, excited about her new home.
This is all down to the staff from the cleaning staff right through to management.

I had mixed feelings about my mother's care when she came out of hospital I didn't feel she was well enough to go straight back to her own home. The best thing we did was placing her in Wansbeck Care Home, the staff are brilliant, very friendly, nothing is too much bother. Mam has come along great, up walking about a massive improvement in her happiness.

My mum has been in the home for a week now after a long stay in hospital. We were dreading it but the staff have been fantastic, both with my mum but also with us, her family. They have been supportive and caring, whilst also being professional. They are always there with advice and have made what could have been a very traumatic time, so much better and it is a relief to know mum is in such a lovely, safe place.

When I found Wansbeck, they took me in, comforted me, reassured me they would care for Dad. They have done exactly that. All of the staff are professional, treat my Dad with dignity, respect and humour. There is always a smile and laughter to share. The staff don't just do a job, they make a happy home for the residents. They "get" my Dad. They know him and care about him

My husband has received superb care in this home since his admission in September 2016. The staff deliver a very high standard of personalised care are very observant in noting any changes in my husband's condition. Communication has been excellent and both myself and my husband are very happy with his surroundings and care. He is kept warm, comfortable and entertained, in a safe environment in which he clearly feels secure and valued.

My father-in-law did not spend long in Wansbeck before he passed away suddenly. However, in this short time I could see we had picked the best place for him. The staff were always pleasant and caring towards him, even during his agitated periods. They did all they could to comfort him, treating him with great care, kindness and dignity, which was also extended to us. My father-in-law really appreciated all the staff and what they did for him, he said they were all lovely to him we knew when we left after visits, that he was receiving the best possible care, this reassured us a great deal which was a great comfort to us. Thank you ever so much.

A fantastic care home, all the staff are excellent and very caring and give the best possible dignity. Had looked around several care homes before choosing this one and cant praise them enough, have never had any cause for concerns of his welfare and the standard of his care is second to none in every aspect. This home is to an exceptional standard. Being able to visit my dad and see him as happy and content means everything. I cannot thank any of the staff enough for the fantastic job they all do.

This is a high quality care home which is evident from every aspect. The care and dignity given is the best. The staff are highly knowledgeable and very friendly. Cleanliness all through is of a very high standard both of residents rooms and public facilities. The residents are well catered for with lots of activities for those that wish to take part. The food is excellent with lots of variants. My husband is blind, deaf, has cancer and Alzheimer's, but I have never had any cause for concern about his wellbeing. I am so glad that I chose this care home as I don't think I could have chosen a better place.

I cannot express enough the confidence I have in leaving my mother in the care of the manager and her marvellous staff. From the first time we met with them their genuine concern and dedication to the welfare of the residents was clearly apparent. Every member of staff appear to be happy in their job and they have supported myself and mam at a very sad and difficult time. My mother has always had a fear of "going in a home", now she requests it and feels safe there. If this becomes a permanent arrangement I will have no hesitation about feel relieved that she will be in such capable hands.

I was in hospital before I came to Wansbeck, the manager came to see me in hospital, I knew from meeting her that I would want to go and live at Wansbeck. The staff have made me feel so welcome and the manager brings my paper and lemonade in for me everyday, even on the weekend when it is her time off. I am always asked if there is anything I want or if I would like to go out with the staff. I feel safe here and everyone has been great. They all deserve a medal for what they do for us.

I love it here the staff are lovely. I have made some nice friends and I have started knitting and bingo. I like the television. My room is smashing. The food I get here is nice. The hairdresser comes and does my hair for me it is lovely. I would tell anybody to come to this home.

My father has been a resident for nearly 4 years now. I feel that he is treated with compassion and respect. The staff keep me informed of any problems and we are included in any decisions about changes in his medication etc. The staff are always very pleasant and cheerful.
