Reviews

9.1 Abbey Care Complex has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.142)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Abbey Care Complex is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abbey Care Complex in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.642 for Abbey Care Complex is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.642

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abbey Care Complex is based on 5 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.500

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

The carers, sisters, receptionist, laundry lady and all staff were very courteous and care for their people, also for the visitors going to see their mother's/father's/husband's/wive's etc. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants their loved ones tended to.

My father has been in Abbey Care complex since February 2016 and my mother in the same care home since November 2016.

My father is now 94 and mum is 86. Both parents are very fragile health-wise and the emotional experience and turmoil of placing both patents in this care home, was quite frankly, made far easier by the kind, caring support of all the staff at Abbeycare.

The management, nurses and all healthcare workers and support staff are totally dedicated to their jobs and to the caring of all residents.

Myself and my family have only praise and thanks to all of them, as we doubt our parents would be here today if it was not due to the work of these kind people.

The only complaint, which will commonplace for all care homes I suspect, is the fact they could do with more staff on call, however, we are mindful of the extra cost this would place upon the home's owners and in turn, the costs passed onto to residents and their families.

The staff is very good but you need 4 carers. I don't think 3 is enough on the ground floor.

We chose this home on recommendation and when we viewed it we were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the care they gave to residents. We have not been disappointed. The staff really do care about the welfare of the residents. They get my mum out of bed every day and take her to the day room with other residents. My mum is happy with the food she is given and seems generally content. If there is any room for improvement it would be better staff communication on shift change.

My mum spent 7 and a half months in hospital, she didn't feed herself, was never dressed, wasn't kept clean. My family and I were constantly asking for her to be changed. Mum hardly spoke, never smiled, just stared in front of her.
Within a week of mum moving to Abbey Care, she was sitting upright in her armchair in the day room, she was able to feed herself.
Mum is now washed and dressed everyday, never smells. She chats all the time, laughs, smiles, takes interest in the television, feeds herself, drinks from an open-top cup.
She has put on weight and seems genuinely happy. Her dementia is so severe, but I really believe she'd given up hope while in hospital. The care, love and support she receives from the staff at Abbey Care has given her a whole new lease of life. She has her dignity back. Thank you.

Mother was a resident from June 2015 until passing on 16/10/2015. She was so very well looked after by all the staff at Abbey Care. I (only daughter)live a 2 hour journey away but visited every week. I took great comfort in mum being loved and cared for. She was very happy there until the end. Nothing was too much trouble and we had no complaints only compliments. Mum was treated with dignity and love.
