The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Pen-y-Garth EMI Residential & Residential Home 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pen-y-Garth EMI Residential & Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.409 for Pen-y-Garth EMI Residential & Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.409

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pen-y-Garth EMI Residential & Residential Home is based on 9 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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.

This is an excellent home, I cannot fault it.
The staff are marvellous. I watch and observe and they are very kind. I've been coming here to visit my husband over 12 months. The manager is excellent and she always makes time to chat with me. The home is spotless the food is all home made and I have my meals with my husband. I am offered a cup of tea as soon as I arrive.

The carers are lovely and treat my mum with love and compassion. Some of the furniture is old fashioned and some reclining chairs would be useful. Mum seems happy and relaxed to be in the home.

We have found that our Mother is far better at this home than her previous home where she had sores and was permanently wet with urine. She is a lot more happier and is a pleasure to see her like this. We are so much more happier with the care she is receiving.

Not a lot to say my wife has been a resident for four years and has always been treated well by staff and management she is kept clean and well fed and her needs are well provided for. She is quite fond of the staff and they, in turn, respond to that. I would be very upset if for any reason she has to be re-homed.

For the past eleven months, my mother has been at Pen-y-Garth in Brymbo. We, as a family have seen a drastic improvement in her general health and hygiene. She has settled into what she now considers to be her home and in her words, she feels safe. This is largely due to how well the staff deal with her condition. They also give us a fantastic welcome when we visit and make us feel like part of one big happy family.

I'd heard of care homes but had never personally been. But having seen it for myself, it had spread from not knowing to knowing. I could not believe how warm and caring they were, straight away they were bringing me into their fold (family like) they made me feel like I was part of their family.
They could not do enough, no task was too much, there was nothing to do that was too much trouble, they gave 110% in what they were doing for you. I really wanted to stay until I was completely healed. The bedside manor was exceptionally good but I liked the way everything was a team effort. I think they fell in love wit me as I did with them. They were super.
