Reviews

4.8 St Joseph's Nursing Home has a Review Score of 4.8 (4.833)

The Review Score of 4.8 (maximum of 10) for St Joseph's 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Joseph's Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.833 for St Joseph's Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Joseph's Nursing Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0

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

My 93 year old mother had a fall and after a hospital spell I managed to get her into St. Josephs. I was so impressed with how accommodating and professional the staff were and the main thing for me was their compassion and friendliness. The quality of food was excellent and there was a nice mix of young and and not so young staff but all embraced the 'one big family' aspect of St. Josephs. When Mum was struggling with her health, she had visits from some of the residents so all in all I could not have been happier with her care.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful care and attention my mother in law received in this excellent nursing home. Patients and guests are made to feel part of the caring family of St. Josephs. Smiley faces, nice clean facilities, very tasty food and it only took a few days for my wife and I to appreciate that this is a very caring and homely environment. The management team are very watchful and helpful and, when asked, happy to discuss every aspect of the patient's care. Although my mother in law's stay was a relatively short one we could not believe how friendly and supportive the staff were. Every wish or request was acted upon immediately and in between times the offer of a cup of tea was most welcome. Although she was a practicing Christian there was no overriding religious emphasis, apart from the reminder around you that this is a convent, but a wonderful sense of calm prevailed. We found that even in such a small home other patients were friendly and keen to befriend any new intakes. I would recommend anyone to this wonderful care home be it patients in their final needy days or those seeking a secure and comfortable home in their latter years.
