Glebefields Care Home

Stratford Road, Drayton, Banbury OX15 6EH

Glebefields is an impressive stone-built former rectory, overlooking miles of countryside in an area known for its outstanding natural beauty, including the adjacent Norman Parish Church of St. Peter.

Many of the rooms have patio doors opening out onto the patio, so the serenity of the countryside is never far away. The home is tastefully decorated, making it as unique as its residents - it's a home that inspires pride in all.

The home stands in landscaped grounds within the picturesque village of Drayton, just half a mile outside Banbury and eleven miles from Brackley. Despite its rural setting, Glebefields is accessible, with convenient access to shops, restaurants and public transport links.

Bedrooms are en-suite, divided between their residential and dementia care suites, they think carefully about the type of room each resident needs. The Willow Lane unit has rooms which provide specialist dementia care - designed, furnished and decorated according to latest thinking from specialist researchers into dementia.

An activities co-ordinator oversees a busy schedule of events for residents, working with them and their relatives to make sure everyone's interests are being met. Daily events are organised in the home as well as regular trips outside.

Care workers understand that moving into Glebefields will be a considerable transition, but it's one they try to make feel as easy as possible. By helping you arrange your room just the way you like, or bringing you your daily newspaper, they'll do the little things that make the biggest difference.

Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Glebefields Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Glebefields Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 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 4.453 for Glebefields Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (191 Excellents x 5) + (95 Goods x 4) + (39 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 327 Ratings = 4.453

  • 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 4.938 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Glebefields Care Home is based on 9 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.938

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

9.4 Glebefields Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.391) from 28 Reviews

Mum lived at Glebefields for the last two years and three months. Her care while she was there was brilliant. The staff have been exceptional and looked after and cared for her during her stay.
Unfortunately, Mum passed away in later March but would recommend Glebefields as she enjoyed her life there until she was taken ill.

Without exception the staff at Glebefields are exceptional. They are caring, kind and compassionate to residents and family alike. The house has lacked strong leadership over the last two years (this has now been addressed) and improvements to raod, surroundings etc are beginning to filter through. Some maintenance and hygiene issues.

Rebekah Saint, Marketing Executive at Glebefields Care Home responded to this review on 09 May 2018:

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Our team will be very pleased to hear that you always find them cheerful and helpful. We endeavour to reduce the time it takes to answer the bell, however if all our carers are already assisting a resident there may, on occasion, be a short wait. As always our home manager, Colette New, has an open door policy and would be happy to speak with you at your earliest convenience. Alternatively, pop in to one of resident and relative meetings as we always love hearing new ideas on how we can improve our service.

I feel blessed and very happy that my mother is receiving such excellent care from excellent staff and management. Also, mum is very safe and feels secure. Overall very very a much peace of mind for mother and family.

The staff at Glebefields have been outstanding in all respects of my mother's care.

Due to their input, we have seen her physical and mental state improve beyond our expectation, she is extremely settled in Glebefields mainly due to the constant care and attention from all the members of staff. In addition, we as her family have been kept informed on a regular basis and any requests met with a smile.

Glebefields is in a lovely location with stunning countryside views. Mum has a room where she can look out into the well maintained gardens and across nearby fields. She is very happy there. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the home is always clean and not smelly! Mum enjoys the food and the chef goes out of his way to provide ‘special’ treats for her e.g. a cooked breakfast using her favourite black pudding I took in. In warmer weather, residents are taken into the garden and if appropriate given ice creams or strawberries. There are regular entertainments and Mum particularly likes the singers.

We were desperate to find a bed within a nursing home, it was a very emotional time and my friend only had days to live. Glebefields in Drayton were exceptional with the speed and care to sort this out for us. They got the room ready and moved us in within 24 hours of the desperate home visit. I will always be grateful.

I have nothing but praise for this home. The staff and carers were always so kind and helpful, especially as my husband had a very bad memory problem, being very stressed at times not knowing where I was etc. A little problem sometimes with missing socks.

The staff, who were under pressure at times and operating in difficult circumstances, were always responsive and caring to carry out their very difficult jobs with good spirit and attitude.

They made my father as well looked after as possible and managed my mother's concerns with good understanding and patience.

The family was always impressed with how the staff coped in these difficult matters and remain most appreciative.

My uncle (93) is happy at Glebefields; the staff are kind and the accommodation is comfortable and safe.
When he arrived 15 months ago he was agitated and unwilling to stay (in the dementia unit) but the staff were patient and understanding and he now says he is content and in 'good condition'.

I would just like to express my heartfelt thanks for all that was done for our dad/gramp. The care he received during his time at Glebefields Care Home was second to none and I personally could not have wished for kinder more professional staff.

The carers are wonderful.

I would definitely recommend Glebefields to anyone who finds themselves in need of care for a loved one.

We looked at several homes for convalescence care for our mother and this home was by far the best. All the staff have been very welcoming, kind and caring, Attention was given to the specific needs and rehabilitation for my mother. We were given a choice of rooms allowing mum to watch the birds from her window. Her room was very comfortable with plenty of space and storage. This care home has been the perfect place for mum to rest/recover and also give my sister and I two weeks of 'respite' after weeks of 24/7 care. We are very appreciative of all the efforts of the whole team. Many thanks.

My father who died at Glebefields aged 93 in December 2016, lived at the care home for the last 16 months of his life. The staff were sensitive to his needs while respecting his privacy and particularly enjoyed the singers and musicians. He loved his room with its beautiful view and appreciated the cheerfulness and friendliness of all the staff.

The entire time mum was a resident at the home, she was always treated with the utmost care and dignity. I visited mum on a regular basis and each time the staff were welcoming, helpful and happy. Information was freely given at all times and I was called if mum was "resident of the day" to ask which "treats" mum would like. Mum passed away before Christmas and again, the staff were fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone there.

When I first visited Glebefields I knew this was the place for my husband to spend his last days of his life. Homely, welcoming, really genuine feeling from the staff. Everyone so caring. He was treated with dignity. Glebefields was like one of the top hotels (even better). I thank God I chose Glebefields.

If you have any problems you are able to talk to the appropriate people who will deal with it, my husband is unable to ask or answer for himself so its important to have nurses and carers (all staff) to be able to read his needs, so staff in a dementia unit is important to relatives. I would recommend to friends and family depending on the needs they wanted.

I visit almost daily to help at lunch time, and am always made to feel welcome. There is a calm and friendly atmosphere in the dementia unit generally. All the staff including cleaners, carers, nurses and kitchen staff are friendly and polite. I feel the staff training sessions have improved the handling of patients care. Personally I have no complaints about staff and they are always willing to help if I ask. (Help for my husband to be moved into a wheelchair or to be taken to the toilet).
