Reviews

9.6 St Mary's Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.619)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for St Mary's Care Home 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 33 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Mary's Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.619 for St Mary's Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (270 Excellents x 5) + (92 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 386 Ratings = 4.619

  • 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 St Mary's Care Home is based on 16 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 12 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 aunt was a client at St Mary's Care Home from October 2017 until January 2018 where she passed away sadly. Although my aunt needed full nursing care she was nursed in bed, her care was excellent, she was treated with dignity and made comfortable at all times. She loved her room and surroundings. Also after my aunt passed away the help and support we received as a family was excellent.

So sorry to hear of your loss, please accept our condolences. Thank you for your review and kind words. It is so nice to hear that your aunt loved her room and that she was well cared for.

My mother went into St Mary's Care Home Easter Monday 2017. In the six months she was in the home she received excellent nursing care, the staff were very professional and friendly. The staff were very supportive to me during my mother's last week prior to her death. I couldn't be more impressed with the care and dignity given to my mother.

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear that you are well cared for in our care. It is the little things like a smile that makes all the difference.

When we had to make the heart-wrenching decision that we were not able to cope with looking after our dear mum anymore, we felt we had in some way let her down. We had been by her side throughout her terrible illness and just didn't want anyone else to do it for us.
Would you be there when she called for help? Would you hold her hand when she needed company? Would you make sure she wasn't feeling pain? How could anyone else possibly do all those things the way we would want them done.

From the very first phone call, the first meeting, a great cloud was lifted from over our heads. It sounded like we had found the perfect place for mum to end her days.

Mum was so impressed with the food, which sadly was only to be enjoyed for a couple of days. You took on our mum and from the very start you cared for her, cleaned her, looked after her every need, always made us feel so welcome and we knew that mum had the best of care that we could possibly have wished for. You gave her her dignity right to the very end and you gave us solace needed to be there at her passing and the time needed until we were ready to say our goodbyes and leave her to your professionalism after her passing.

We cannot express enough in words, our deepest gratitude for your compassion, your hard work and the absolute tremendous care you hare our dear mum in life and tight to the very end.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, please accept our condolences. Thank you for your review and such kind words about our staff. It is the little things like holding a hand or just a smile that makes all the difference. I hope that in time when you look back on the short time that your mum spent with us it gives you peace of mind knowing that she was well cared for and as hard as the decision was, you made the right decision.

My sister-in-law was transferred to St Mary's Care Home from hosptial after suffering a stroke, unfortunately, her stay was short as she dies within two and a half weeks stay.
The care that she was given was exemplary. Every staff members that we encountered was considerate, caring and treated with dignity.
As a family, we were all pleased that she had her last days in such a beautiful environment.

I had a total knee replacement and I wanted to go somewhere to help me convalesce. St Mary's was wonderful and looked after me with the greatest of care. All the staff were so friendly and caring and did everything they could to help me. The food was excellent and I could ask for anything at any time. It was lovely that I could take part in activities and meet other residents. I would certainly recommend St Mary's and I would like to say a big 'thank you'.

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you are back in good health after your knee replacement.

Very clean and very well proportioned rooms. The only thing I feel is beyond my comprehension is why the night bell or day bell is not working, but not much to add but the day room in which I visited my relative seemed very cramped. I can't really comment on the food because the resident is nil by mouth but her appearance seems quite good.

My father was at St Mary's Care Home for 3 months for end of life care, having previously lived at another care home for about 4 years. St Mary's management and staff are professional, caring, genuine, experienced, compassionate and very open. My Dad received high-quality care, we were made to feel welcome and the communication was very good. I felt confident that my Dad was being looked after when I wasn't there. I'm pleased my Dad's final 3 months were spent in such a warm and kind environment, it means a lot to me and the rest of the family.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept our condolences. Thank you for your review and kind words about our staff. It is lovely to hear that in the last months of your dad's life you and your family had peace of mind knowing that he was well care for.

Our mother was resident at St Mary's Care Home from 10th April to 6th June 2017. We have only praise for all the staff who work as a team to ensure 'the home from home' meets all the residents' needs. The food is of excellent quality and the home is kept spotlessly clean. Interaction with the residents ensures their mental stimulation (where possible) is fully engaged. Our mum loved playing bingo and dominos - games she would never have entertained at home.

My dad was transferred to St Mary's Care Home from the hospital to receive palliative end of life care.
Dad's stay was short but the care he was given was exemplary. It was a very difficult time for our family but every member of staff that we encountered was considerate, respectful and caring.
They didn't just care for our dad, but also for us as a family, which made a very sad time more bearable and for that, I am truly grateful.

Excellent all round. Can not praise the dedicated and genuinely caring staff enough. They carried out their (sometimes difficult) duties with care, efficiency and good humour. Nothing it seems was too much trouble. The overall standard was faultless, especially a lovely lady who organised social events, games etc... and charming details.
Well done St Mary's

It was a very warm welcome to my husband when he had been transferred from the hospital to have palliative care at St Mary's Care Home in Luton. It was a short stay as he died 12 days later. It was a very warm, caring and friendly atmosphere and lots of love that all the staff had given to him, these kindnesses will surely be remembered. On behalf of my husband, I was impressed and would like to thank you at such a precious time.

1) Not very happy with the service provided by the doctor's surgery allocated.
2) Understaffed as they seemed under pressure.
3) Constant problems with lost laundry, not always resolved.
4) Whilst the staff and care provided was excellent, the décor was tired and outdated.
5) Bedtime very early in evenings (16:30?).
6) Visitors and family always made welcome and offered support when necessary.

St Mary's Care Home is like a family. Although we were only there for 5 days, they made our Dad and family extremely welcome. Cups of tea and food were offered at an extremely difficult end-of-life care. All staff were supportive and always had time to answer questions and offer support. My Dad was very ill and they helped make it a peaceful, pain-free and special time in his last few days. I couldn't have imagined a more appropriate/serene way to go!

Spotlessly clean, food superb, a room with French doors which opened onto a beautiful courtyard. Perfect. We have encountered many care homes in Luton and St Mary's Care Home is definitely the best!

My mother entered St Mary's Care Home in late June 16 with c.h.c funding from the hospital. She was totally dependent on the carers and staff. My family were most impressed with the care my mother was given and the warm and friendly atmosphere of the home which was extended to my family as well. We found the accommodation and surrounding most pleasant.

My brother was a resident at St Mary's Care Home for almost six months. He enjoyed the caring and friendly nature of the medical and other staff. When he was able he went along to the musical events (2pm-3pm) and joined in the singing and sometimes also dancing. The facilities enabled him to sometimes sit in the garden and enjoy the sunshine. When my brother was stronger he was able and encouraged to go out to lunch of external clubs with his family and friends. We thank you.

Over the past nine years of my mothers stay at St Mary's, overall the care has been good, but we had to raise some issues about her care on occasions. Mum passed away earlier this month and it has to be said, the care she and the family received was wonderful. In the last week of her life nothing was too much trouble and mum was made comfortable and we're sure she felt loved by all who cared for her.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments of our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager. Also please accept our condolences . The Bupa Customer Care Team.

The establishment is clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. Staffing ratio is good. All staff are well informed. As a family we all felt accepted into their "family", my mother has been treated with respect and dignity at all times. The meals are appetizing and look great. I have not come across a single staff member that doesn't have the time of day for us all, and will always chat to us and tell us what they have done with mum during the day.

I cannot express that the service at St Mary's Care Home is so superb I don't think I could ask for more. The carers are great and will do anything to please, food is nourishing and variety great, I cannot praise it enough.

Was asked to arrange 95th Birthday party for my Mum and to make it special as Mum thinks every birthday is her last. Layout in the upstairs dining room was great with a magnificent spread of mouth watering varieties of food, plated and garnished to professional standards. The kitchen staff, activities staff and helpers excelled themselves in every way and were their usual pleasant selves and very helpful.

My mum has been in St Mary's for almost 3 years and has always been treated with compassion and respect. The staff at St Mary's are friendly and welcoming, you are always greeted on first name terms by the carers, nurses and office staff and always with a smile.
My dad visits most days and is encouraged to join in with the daily activities which he enjoys, he also has become a part of the St Mary's family and is treated with care and consideration. As a family it makes us all feel re-assured that our mum is receiving the best care and support she needs. A very big thank you.

Excellent help and advice from the manager made it run smoothly and quickly and took the stress away. My relative feels happy here. Lovely food and staff, he feels welcome and at home. The room was beautifully decorated for his arrival. Great all round.

My brother has spent eight years at St Mary's nursing home, and he has seen many changes, staff come and go but, the level of care has never changed. The staff are always caring and respectful to families as well as the residents. I must just say that the office staff who have been there for years are wonderful and the present manageress has bent over backwards for my brother and I can say with all honesty that I am going to miss all the staff right down to the cleaners now that my brother has passed.
