Reviews

9.8 Foxley House has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.815)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Foxley House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Foxley House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.815 for Foxley House is calculated as follows: ( (179 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.815

  • 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 Foxley House is based on 14 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 4.6 positive Reviews (23 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 4.6 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 mum has been a resident here for a year now and I am very pleased with the care and attention she receives from all the staff. The home has all the facilities and aids that residents may require no matter what mobility they may lack. If you have any questions regarding your family members care, the staff are always accessible. Staff also provide entertainment for the residents i.e. they are not just left in a corner. Dependant on the weather, staff arrange varied trips out locally or by mini bus. I would not hesitate to recommend Foxley House.

I find Foxley a great place to live. The staff are amazing, they look after me so well. If I want to go upstairs they run to carry my Zimmer for me, we have a laugh, the boss says I'm never to go up by myself in case I fall and to just let her know whenever I need anything.
If anything is wrong with me I just go to the office and it gets sorted out immediately.
My family is always made to feel welcome when they visit me and are welcome to have tea with me.
My friends and I sit in the garden in the nice weather with a wee ice cream and juice, we all get a hat to wear.
I feel content and well looked after by all the girls.

My mother is a resident of Foxley and has been there for three years. She is well looked after and has formed good friends with residents and staff through the years. She enjoys sitting in the garden and going to church outings and social events. There are good, organised events in-house during the year. I feel she is safe, happy and well looked after.

I have no complaints about the home and I try not to cause too much bother. I get on well with the girls who work here. I don't go through life without having a few words to say to some people but here is a very good place. I'm happy with the meals and have just cleared 2 plates at lunch time and when I don't have to cook it it's even better.

I have lived here since 2012 and couldn't be happier, I share a room with a lovely lady and we get on well. My brother also stays here and it's great for both of us to be close to each other, my daughter visits every week and I have lots of time with other family members. The home is lovely and the staff amazing. They are such fun all the time and never bothered by anything anyone asks, the food is good and we can get anything we want anytime. I love the party nights we have as I like a good sing song, theres also lots going on during the day. I was out helping to plant some flowers last week and they put up lots of pictures of what we do so we can have good memories. I would recommend the home to anyone.

My gran was in for respite again, this is about the fourth time and she loves it. It's the only home she would consider using.
I find the staff lovely and approachable, there's nothing they won't do and they are the same with all the residents. It's such a relief to be able to go on holiday and know that she is well looked after.

My mother stayed in Foxley for almost 3 years due to the onset of dementia. Throughout her stay the care was excellent. All of the staff are extremely friendly and professional and the care they provide is of the highest order. As a family, this gave us great peace of mind in that we knew that mum was being looked after as you do still, unfortunately, hear some horror story's regarding care homes. We never had any doubt as to the quality of care mum was receiving while in Foxley. You could drop by at any time and always made very welcome. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, the level of care they provide, the personal touch as they do treat residents more like family than residents. I would have no hesitation in recommending Foxley to anybody it really is a first class home where you know your loved ones will be extremely well looked after. Thank you Foxley for taking such great care of my mum. We will always remember what you did for us.

Brian Murray, Home Manager at Foxley House responded to this review on 21 Mar 2017:

Many thanks for all the reviews, it's always a pleasure for staff to look after such wonderful residents and we always think of their families as our family too. All the staff are delighted with the reviews.

We were extremely impressed with the way all the staff treated my mum in the time she was in the home. They treated her like their own mum and were always very cheery any time we visited. I would recommend the home to any friend who was looking for a place to care for their family in these circumstances.

My mother received excellent care while at Foxley House. All staff were very professional and caring, nothing was ever a bother to them. Always going that extra mile to make sure all residents felt safe and secure. Staff were always on hand to give an update on any information that needed to be passed on to family members. I would highly recommend Foxley House as an excellent place of care. This is mainly due to all the management and very caring staff.

I found the Care Home an extremely happy place for my mother to be a resident of. I could relax in the knowledge that she was being well looked after and cared for. The staff were always so pleasant and helpful and nothing was too much bother. All the residents always had a smile on their faces and certainly seemed happy. They always tried to have some sort of daily activity on to keep the residents active and interested and they all seemed to get involved. Karaoke evenings were fun, usually hosted by the staff on duty but sometimes they would bring in a singer to entertain. Unfortunately, my mum recently passed but I am content to know that she was always well taken care of and fussed over by the girls in the home. I would certainly recommend Foxley House without hesitation.

My gran has been here for over a year and I was asked to fill in one of these reviews after the Christmas party. I am happy to do it as I think Foxley is a great home. Great staff, great management and they always make the residents happy. The party was amazing, such a good atmosphere, great food and great music. I'm so happy my gran is here and would always recommend Foxley house to anyone.

My gran has had a few stays here for respite and recently in December. The staff are always amazing, they just pull out all the stops to make sure the residents are well looked after. The home looked great with the Christmas decorations, you would never know it was a care home. So pleased every time we come here and a particular female care is an absolute star.

Brian Murray, Care Manager at Foxley House responded to this review on 04 Jan 2017:

Thank you for your lovely review. We always strive to provide the best possible care and we are delighted that you were so happy with it.

My wife went into Foxley in January 2016, initially so that I could get a few weeks respite. It became apparent that she should have been in full time care and as she had seemingly settled well, the family and I decided to keep her there for full time care. The home was clean, the food was good, the staff are lovely, caring and patient. Unfortunately after a few months, her condition deteriorated and she really required full time nursing care. In April we managed to get her into a "Specialist Nursing Dementia" unit. In her few months in Foxley House, she was loved and really looked after by their exceptional staff. Our whole family will miss them!
