Reviews

9.1 Meyrick Rise has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.147)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Meyrick Rise 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meyrick Rise in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 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 4.531 for Meyrick Rise is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.531

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 4.616 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meyrick Rise 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.616

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

My attendance at the home is limited since sadly my wife died after over 5 years as a resident. By invitation from the management by occasional visits do not allow a full in-depth review. However, my impression is based upon coverage with friends, staff and my own observations. The staff certainly seem to be of high calibre demonstrating above average care and consideration which would be a little disturbing as is the slight uncertainty relating to the appointment of a new manager. Over the past few years, the average period of time the home manager is regularly less than 12 months, this exceptionally high turnover could affect continuity and the smooth running of most organisations. The present acting management and deputy appear to be efficient, extremely popular and respected by staff and residents who I am aware would welcome some confirmation of their permanency. In conclusion, the standard of food and preparation is of a standard.

In every possible area, Meyrick Rise was excellent.
It appeared more like a hotel (with care) than a care home.
All staff, food, comfort and care could not be better.

My mother age 90 years has been cared for by her key workers, both who are excellent ladies. The lady in the office keeps me updated with any problems along with the rest of the lovely caring staff. Good food. Thank you to the catering staff and the ladies who arranged the leisure activities and the lady in admin. Great team.

Meyrick Rise is a lovely bright and warm home. The rooms are modern and attractive. My mother is very comfortable and happy there. The staff are most attentive and always smiling and helpful. The standard of the food is amazing and it's very plentiful. I'm very happy with mother's care in every way.

We have found Meyrick Rise very friendly and welcoming. It was with an element of anxiety that we had to bring our mum to respite care. However, these anxieties were quickly allayed and mum is happily settled and has improved in outlook and demeanour since arriving.
We feel as a family very confident at leaving mum here as we know and have seen the excellent care she receives from the nurses, carers activities ladies and cleaners. They all pay attention to detail and ensure mum is safe and happy. Many Thanks

I have visited this facility 8-10 times over the last few months and have always found the home welcoming, clean and organised. I have been greeted courteously and helpfully. Staff appear knowledgeable and caring and will give advice regarding physical/mental state and how best to conduct visits (duration etc). The home is typical of where I could imagine myself in some years to come and I think this is a good indicator of how well it is run and what good facilities exist, from the food to entertainment and recreation. I would certainly recommend Meyrick Rise to others.

The building and ambiance is 5 star. I required a place in a nursing home in order to stay for a short while after being in hospital before they could discharge me as I live alone. My son enquired of several suitable ones (it was New Year). This was the one that showed most interest over the telephone. Since my arrival I have been treated with the utmost respect and care by every member of staff. The food is very light and fresh and if the bell is rung it has been answered promptly and my request - usually for a pot of tea answered promptly. I would most certainly return.
