Reviews

9.6 Meyrick Rise has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.649)

The Review Score of 9.6 (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 4.6 out of 5 from 21 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 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.649 for Meyrick Rise is calculated as follows: ( (165 Excellents x 5) + (79 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 248 Ratings = 4.649

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meyrick Rise is based on 18 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). 18 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target Reached = 1

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

Our mum has come here for respite and due to her circumstances will need to stay. She has never wanted to live in a care facility so it has been a hard decision but we have found this team so supportive! The carers are lovely always smiling and wanting to do all they can. The management are exceptional with suggesting ideas, follow-up plans and support. My mum has settled better than I ever thought she would and it has really taken some stress form us. The place is clean and comfortable and homely. The food has a variety and of a good standard.
We like that the residents are encouraged to socialise and join in but can have peace in their own rooms or gardens. I would stay here.

Not having known of this care home before my father in law was admitted, I was very impressed with the high quality of service provided.
The friendly atmosphere and attention to detail impressed me.
My husband and I, as well as other relatives, speak very highly of the care home.
As to be expected, my father in law initially wanted to be back in his own home, but due to his physical health, was unable to.
He very soon adapted to the care home and the remaining days of his life were happy and comfortable.
The staff are magic!
There is no doubt that due to the superb care he received it extended his life way beyond what was expected by several months.

From the initial contact and throughout my mother's stay at Meyrick Rise, all the staff showed the greatest care and professionalism towards my mother (and other residents). She has enjoyed her period of respite care and leaves in much better health than when she arrived.

Justine Cowell, BDM at Meyrick Rise responded to this review on 11 Sep 2017:

Thank you, John, for your very kind words, We are so happy that your mum had a great time with us and look forward to her next stay. She was a delight to care for and hope that she will come back and visit us again soon, even if it is just to pop in for coffee. I know our residents would love to see her again, she would be very welcome!

This care home is a lovely and friendly place to go. I am always made welcome by all of the staff and they are happy to help you. My grandmother has never been so happy. The last care home she was in I would give 1 star and Meyrick Rise, I would give 5 stars.
I would not fault this care home by appearance or staff. This is a like a 5-star hotel, but better.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that your Grandmother is so happy here and she is a delight to care for.

The staff are excellent, well trained, excellent and very understanding.
My aunt was a resident here 18months ago after breaking her femur.
She has now got to the point of needing a care home and I had no hesitation in reserving her a place here.

My late Father spent his last 7 weeks at Meyrick Rise. Initially, they weren't sure if they could manage someone who was very ill and sometimes displayed difficult behaviour. Despite these understandable initial concerns they formulated a plan with us and dad's medical team and ensured it was acted upon. Throughout this short time, up to and including his death, all the staff were extremely warm, caring, friendly and always respectful to his and our requests.

The building and grounds are also lovely and its a great central location in Bournemouth.

I would highly recommend it.

My mother entered the home for a week's respite while we (her carers) went on holiday. When we returned, she had contracted a UTI and we were unable to take her back to her home where she lived alone. The home was very sympathetic and agreed to keep my mum until we could find her a permanent place. The staff were wonderful and gave my mum a lot of attention and care. Despite her erratic behaviour caused by the UTI the staff were understanding and did their best to ensure she was safe and well. I would recommend Meyrick Rise to anyone as a good care home for both respite and permanent care. We owe a big thank you to Meyrick Rise.

Justine Cowell, BDM at Meyrick Rise responded to this review on 11 Jul 2017:

Thank you so much for your kind words, we were so happy to be able to help you in your time of need and she was a lovely lady to care for, picking up on her UTI early gave us the chance to sort things out for her with her GP very early in her stay. We wish all of you the best for the future.

My family and I were very pleased with the way my Mother was treated whilst she was a resident in Meyrick Rise recently.
She was admitted from hospital for end-of-life care and was treated with the utmost respect and dignity at all times. Mum was fond of the carers and nurses, although she herself was not always cooperative when they were trying to care for her!

As a family, we were always welcomed into the home and the staff did all they could to make us feel at ease whilst visiting Mum who was deteriorating fairly rapidly.
Nobody minded what time of day we visited and how long we stayed, this ensured that those of us who work could come and go freely, fitting the visits in with our work commitments.

I would certainly recommend this care home to other families who face the same situation as we did. We always got the impression the staff looking after Mum did genuinely care about her and where trying to make sure that her last few weeks were as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

I have visited my friend today in Meyrick Rise and I have not seen her for some time. She is absolutely blossoming in the home, she has been treated very well by all the staff, the food is lovely, and she is kept busy with a whole host of activities. When I visited yesterday they were playing scrabble on a huge board which was the size of a person! She tells me that one of her friends in the home recently went swimming which the home organised for her as a wish. I honestly am so happy to have visited yesterday. My mind has been completely put at rest. I have to thank the staff for making me so welcome too.

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.

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.
