Reviews

9.7 Penrhos Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.688)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Penrhos 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Penrhos Care Home 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 4.688 for Penrhos Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 Penrhos Care Home 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 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 3.6 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.

My mother was exceptionally lucky to be a resident of Penrhos Care Home, the family-run home provides the most dignified welcoming home for all of their residents, they went beyond the normal duties of care for the elderly and my mum was treated like family. The staff are amazing and nothing is ever too much trouble. I, unfortunately, didn’t live locally and struggled to visit regularly but because of the management and staff my mother always felt happy and I always knew she was being so well looked after. I cannot recommend this home enough, dignity and exceptional care come as standard.

I find visiting a pleasure. There's always a friendly welcome and I'm encouraged to have a cup of tea and chat with other residents. There's singing going on at present and makes me want to join in! There have been outings in summer and waved the residents off.

I've made many friends with staff and other visitors I know. I would recommend this care home to anyone. I would come here myself if I could.

I had a great visit to see Mum on the weekend, she is looking really well and the atmosphere in the home, warmth and care is really great. Thanks to everyone, such peace of mind when living so far away.

My visits to see a friend are frequent. The building is modern and on one floor. The home always smells clean and the rooms are light and airy. Management and staff are always welcoming and approachable and residents are treated with dignity. Activities such as quizzes, bingo, excursions and walks are among those that I noted. The management runs the home in an orderly and structured way, with clear protocols in place.

Penrhos is a home from home. My mum is very happy there and well cared for. The staff will ring me if they every have any concerns about my mum. The staff are friendly and we are on first name terms. Nothing is too much to ask, they are very accommodating.
I have no concerns at all how the home is run. It is excellent and I have great peace of mind knowing my mum is safe and well cared for.

I would certainly use this home for further respite. Staff very good. Also management very helpful. The staff couldn't do enough for all the people in their care and the food was good. Plates always went back empty. No complaints at all. I think it says it all.

It was quite a traumatic time when mum needed to go into care and involved the family in a great deal of soul searching. We were indeed very fortunate to have found mum a place at Penrhos. The home has continually provided a quality caring environment for mum and has the added bonus of being small enough to offer a truly homely atmosphere. staff are competent sensitive and compassionate and know mum and her individual needs extremely well. They are prompt to provide support and assistance when required. All the staff are willing to go the extra mile and any issues relating to mum's care have been listened to and accommodated. The many varied activities within a really pleasant social atmosphere provided stimulation as well as pampering! it's completely reassuring to know that mum is happy and so well cared for.

Residents appear to be sat in one position for long periods of time. There are some trips out to the seaside etc. I have witnessed some stimulation i.e. simple quizzes and games i.e. hangman's noose, throwing a bat into a big net, making easter bonnets, but this only takes them from chair to table and back again. Some of the patients are able to walk short distances, some with walking aids and some without. They need more stimulation. However, in general, the carers appear to be kind and caring. Some outside additions may be beneficial to the patients to make them feel part of the outside world again.

My mother took up residence in September 2015 at the age of 94. The home under the personnel management of the owners has far exceeded our most optimistic hopes. My mother has been treated with kindness and dignity and nothing has been too much trouble for management and staff. It is a care home in the true sense fo the word and I cannot speak highly enough of it.
