Reviews

8.9 The Grange Care Centre has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.870)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for The Grange Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Grange Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.712 for The Grange Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.712

  • 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 4.158 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Grange Care Centre is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.408

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

My father was a resident of The Grange for four years until his death aged 91 in January 2017. The Grange provided exemplary care for him during these last years of his life. He was in a kind, safe environment and was happy there. The management and staff of The Grange looked after him very well - they were reassured that he was being well looked after and was being treated with dignity and respect.

Whenever we visited The Grange Care Centre, we found the carers were friendly and the management were always available to answer any queries we had. All in all, we felt that we made the right decision for my aunt to be cared for.

My mother was looked after outstandingly at The Grange. At all times my mother was cared for with dignity and great professionalism. It is a warm, friendly place with caring staff who are interested in what they are doing. This shows, management is superb. My mother enjoyed the last few months of her life in a place where all our family felt she could not have been better placed. Thank you.

Without appointment called into The Grange Care Centre and was promptly taken to the manager who advised me on mum's care. From then onwards, I was guided by him including assessments of mum to ensure she would be suited and The Grange suited her. Equipment was purchased to aid mums needs. Mum settled very quickly and got on very well with all the staff. She was always referred to her by name and they took into account her preferences on daily activities. Having trained nurses on site and a weekly visit from the GP is a great plus. The use of the lounge for family gatherings was always available and very much appreciated.

In March my dad was admitted to The Grange Care Centre as my niece and I could not longer care for him at home with a terminal illness. It took a while for us to "let go" of dad into their care. During this time the manager and staff were kind, patient and understanding.

Dad settled immediately. He liked his bright room overlooking an attractive patio area with fountain. He loved his big screen TV to watch horse racing and enjoyed chats with the manager and staff. Dad was very happy there, as he deteriorated the carers spent prolonged periods with him to comfort and reassure. I was able to be with dad during the night he died. The night staff were kind and caring to me also. We could not have wished for a better home for dad to end his life.

I recently stayed at The Grange for respite care for 2 weeks. The staff were all very welcoming and attentive. My room was adequate with an en-suite toilet and sink. The care staff were excellent, very friendly and treated me with dignity at all times. I would happily go back for respite again and look forward to seeing the 'PAT' dog!

I have found The Grange to be a wonderful place in a really beautiful part of the village. The staff- all of them- are the nicest people, so very helpful, always letting me know how my mum is and always there for me as well as mum. I'm asked every day how I am and it makes me feel welcome. They always have time for both of us and mum feels as if she is at home, she loves it here!! Everyone is so nice to her. She is fed well, the food always looks good. I really can't say enough wonderful things about The Grange - because there isn't enough space. Great wonderful etc etc etc.

My mother only spent a few months at the Grange before sadly passing away aged 92. She was firmly of the view that she never wanted to go into a home. Within a few days she was settled in and happy. Because of her deteriorating health I was visiting three or four times a week so quickly met all the staff involved with Mum. All were extremely friendly and caring. They clearly respected Mums wishes and always allowed her to make choices. The respect for Mums dignity was reinforced as she entered "end of life" care. Staff were regularly checking with me to make sure I was happy with Mums choices be it about feeding and pain relief.
