Reviews

9.9 Garnant House has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.884)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Garnant House 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Garnant House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.884 for Garnant House is calculated as follows: ( (156 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 173 Ratings = 4.884

  • 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 Garnant House is based on 8 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 4 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.

I have volunteered at Garnant House on several occasions during events and open days. I find the staff are patient, polite and very approachable; nothing is too much work when it comes to their residents & visitors to the home! It's always very clean and homely at Garnant House giving off a relaxed atmosphere for everyone that lives there & visits! I have come to know the residents personally and take warmth in knowing that they are each looked after superbly.

The care home is within the centre of a Welsh village. The activities and the care reflect the Welshness of the way the residents have lived their entire life, making the care and the attendance from staff a 'home' where it has become an extension of the way that the elderly have lived all their lives.
A big thank you to all the staff for having empathy and love to care for these wonderful people.

I have met with a few of the carers at the home and seen first hand how gentle and professional they are with the residents. There is a large effort to keep the residents engaged in activities that stimulate them mentally and physically as much as possible and volunteers are invited to help with these. There is also an ongoing effort to keep the activities fresh and varied and bring new faces into the home.

As you will see from the marks below, I can not fault the facilities at Garnant House. Each staff member I have dealt with have been extremely professional whilst being very caring towards my grandmother, who has settled incredibly well, which is and should be accredited for their ongoing commitment to their clients.
Thank you to all at Garnant House.

My aunt has Alzheimer's and is a resident at Garnant House. Since moving to Garnant House my aunt has had a better way of life. They have trips out and go out for food on a regular basis. The staff are amazing and would recommend this home to anyone.

I'm very happy here, it's a nice comfortable place. We get peace when we want it but plenty going on if we ant to do things. There's often music playing, from our era and time is taken to find out what we like and what we don't like. The food is always tasty and warm but there could be more choice. I do enjoy it when we have a take-away, my favourite is Chinese! The staff are always helpful and accommodating. My son and family can visit whenever they want to and always treated with a warm welcome.
