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 4.778 for Queen Elizabeth Park Private Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (189 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.778

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 4.844 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Queen Elizabeth Park Private Care Home is based on 13 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 15.4 positive Reviews (77 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 15.4 Target = 0.844

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

My daughter contacted the manageress of the above care home with a view of providing 2 weeks respite care for me (96 years) whilst the family were on holiday. We were treated with kindness and courtesy. The family went off and I went to Queen Elizabeth Park with some trepidation. Not for long, because I was greeted with warmth, consideration, care, and above all, humour.
All the staff are devoted to their tasks with a smile and an encouraging word to the people they are caring for. I am grateful for the experience. Thank you Queen Elizabeth Park.

My relative seems very happy to be at QEP which she regards as 'home'. Although her short-term memory is now poor, she enjoys the varied activities on offer and the peace and security that QEP offers her.

QEP is a friendly and welcoming Home. The nursing care on the 1st Floor is outstanding. Nurses and carers pull together as a dedicated team who have supported my husband with compassion and understanding through some traumatic times over the past seven years. Although the work is physically demanding and emotionally draining, nothing is ever too much trouble and residents, however difficult, are always treated with dignity and respect. For the past seven years the staff have supported both of us with love and friendship which we will never forget.

Queen Elizabeth Park Private Care Home is most welcoming. When entering it reminds me of a relaxing hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble so I feel my mother is being looked after with great care. My husband and I have eaten at Queen Elizabeth Park Private Care Home on several occasions with my mother. The food is delicious and well presented. The menu is very extensive, a very impressive private care home.

I have been here for ten and a half years and I am very happy here. When I was taken to view care homes, one of which I had to choose to live in, I chose Queen Elizabeth Park. Pm arrival I was greeted by a very nice manager and on entering the home I noticed a homely feeling within. After being shown around I decided there and then that this was the home for me. I have not at any time regretted my choice. All the staff are kind, considerate and helpful.

On entering the home there is a warm, friendly and welcoming experience. Our whole family were very impressed with the warm and loving and caring attitude to both my husband and us. Nothing was too much trouble. In spite of the work being very hard and tiring, the staff are very cheerful to both the residents and their family. There are not enough words to express how much it meant to us during a very painful time, the love and care we received.

Although my mother was only at the care home for her last 2 months, the care received was excellent. The end of life care was dignified and compassionate.
All the staff, employed in whichever capacity, are a credit to the care home.

My mum was a resident on the 2nd floor of Queen Elizabeth. This is a secure floor for the residents own well being. The staff are kind, caring supportive, they understand the complex needs of dementia. They always treated mum with respect and kindness, they made sure all her needs were met and offered reassurance when she was confused. They also offered support for the family and always kept us informed.

My mother was a resident from March 2014 until her death in February 2015. She was very happy and content as she was surrounded by caring and supportive staff who were interested in her. In all the time she was there, there was never anything other than animated and smiling. I think her naughty sense of humour helped as she liked to engage with people and was certainly encouraged to do so. We visited most days and were welcomed as part of a large family which is now QEP run. Everyone is invited and encouraged to join in, and we still enjoy visiting even though mum is not there.

There are plenty of activities for residents to participate in and a very comfortable cinema room for residents to use at any time.
