Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Taymer Nursing Home 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 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Taymer Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.8 for Taymer Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (260 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 320 Ratings = 4.8

  • 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 Taymer Nursing Home is based on 18 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 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.

9.8 Taymer Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.800) from 28 Reviews

In November 2017 my cousin went into Taymer Care home aged 89 years. This was a huge lifestyle change as she had up to then lived independently with help from her daughter. She has quickly settled into Taymer, helped by the lovely friendly feel it has and wonderful caring staff. There was a really good programme of events for them over Christmas which my cousin enjoyed taking part in and also New Year celebrations. There is a good menu with freshly prepared meals. This is a really lovely home to be part of. I am a regular visitor to see my cousin and enjoy the time I spent there.

My husband was in Taymer for 4 weeks whilst I was in hospital. This was his second stay at the home and I would use them again if necessary.
Staff and carers were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent.

Dad as originally only a resident for respite care but due to no real improvement in his condition, he became a full-time resident in August 2017.
He is happy and has even put on a little weight as he now eats properly and enjoys his meals. He has the 24-hour a daycare that he needs which gives me peace of mind too.

My father-in-law first went to Taymer on respite care, with his outcome looking bleak due to poor health. But since being in Taymer, he has gone from strength to strength, due to good care and excellent food and his future looks so much better than 12 months ago.

People make a care home and the people who work at The Taymer are very caring and committed to their residents.
My mother would never have chosen to go into a care home being a strong, independent person. However, needs must and she arrived in December last year, non-communitive and hardly eating anything. Although she is bed bound and doesn't leave her room and she has been gently coaxed into eating and speaking more. She is monitored well and repositioned regularly. She sees lots of different people who work there and with her door open can see the movement in the corridor and hear the day to day workings of the home.

My father, however, on his own at home, cooks mini meals from the supermarket, does the crossword but is lonely especially in the evenings.

The care my mother has received at the Taymer has been exceptional. The care home manager and all the staff are just brilliant.
My mum says the food is wonderful and nothing is too much trouble.
I would really like to commend everyone and they have really helped both my mum and our family cope with what has been a really difficult time.

My twin sister entered Taymer Nursing Home gravely ill with numerous problems, in a lot of pain, reluctant to eat or drink and quite depressed. Her condition has improved noticeably. I feel that this is due to the wonderful care shown during the last 3 months. She is now eating well, put on a little weight and with friendly persuasion from her dedicated carers (who have become her new friends) is drinking more fluids.
The food, mostly prepared from fresh produce by the fine chef, is of excellent quality.
She is in need of hourly attention due to her pressure sore and this is done without fail.
It was with much trepidation that my wife and I chose a home for my sister but we knew it was a place where my sister would be as close to home as possible. She is very happy and life is as good as it could be considering her problems.
All the staff have great empathy with the needs of the people who live in what is their new home.
We could not have chosen better.

I came from the Luton and Dunstable hospital in a very low state of health. Within a day, Taymer Nursing Home got to work on me and I started to recover slowly. The staff were very good looking after all my needs. The home and food have been excellent. I am on the verge of going home with being able to do most things for myself. I would like to place on record my gratitude to everybody for their kindness and help at all times. The management did their part very well.

My Mum was admitted to Taymer for rehab after a stay in hospital - she was very apprehensive and really didn't want to go however after a few days she was very at home. The Management and the whole team there could not have been kinder or more considerate; they gave me complete peace of mind. They treat their residents with dignity and respect. The home had lots of activities going on too that really helped Mums recovery. She was in an NHS room which was satisfactory but their residents' rooms are much nicer.

The food was fantastic - it was good to see Mum eating so well.

If it was necessary for my Mum to be admitted to a nursing home she and I would certainly choose Taymer.

I live in Devon, my brother resides in Bedfordshire. We found this home after visiting over 20 others. Mother lived with me until I could no longer manage, she moved to another home in Bedfordshire where she previously lived. She fell and broke her hip. After being treated in hospital she could not walk- she will be 99 next month and was in a poor way upon admission to Taymer Nursing Home. Since then, although deteriorating mentally, the staff at Taymer Nursing Home have greatly improved her physical health. The home cannot be faulted by me. My daughter, a senior health professional, comment "You couldn't have found a better home for grad, dad."

I was placed in a rehab room after being in hospital. The care was first rate, it was very comfortable from the bedrooms to the lounges and the atmosphere. Loved the fresh fruit salad each morning. The staff were the best ever, always there with a smile to greet you and kindness when you needed it. The staff encouraged me and built me up and were aware when I was worrying about things and gave me 'time'. The food was so good. They got me eating again. I didn't (hardly) want to leave. May others share this luxury as I did.

I stayed at Taymer House for four weeks and found the ambience while not quite a home form home, as near as dammit. The staff were all so open and friendly and went out of their way to help you at all times of the day and night. Rooms were comfortable and the food excellent. I believe a five star rating for this nursing home is more than justifiable. Anything less would be a travesty. The activities lady is particularly zealous in getting patients engaged in various activities and you can see her efforts reflected in the patients eyes, as they join in knitting, jigsaws and generally engaging.

Taymer nursing home is situated on the outskirts of Silsoe Bedfordshire. It is a pleasant comfortable home with a large garden full of birds and wildlife. I occupy a large room which has everything I need in it. The staff are happy and friendly and friendly and the chef frequently provides me with different meals I ask for, I am very fussy. My room is cleaned daily and my sink area is always spotless. There are activities in the main lounge most afternoons and meals can be eaten in your room if you choose. My airflow equipment is checked regularly and my oxygen supply of portables ordered on time. Nobody wishes to be in a nursing home but if you have to I recommend Taymer.

I visit on behalf of a church organisation and always feel very welcome and appreciated. The staff are friendly and kind and the ambience of the home is very pleasant. Our concern is that the difficulty of recruiting in the care industry means that it may take longer than usual for residents to get brought into the main lounge area during the day, but that is not the staff's fault but due to the shortage of staff at times.
