Reviews

9.6 Magna Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.642)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Magna Care Centre 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Magna Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.642 for Magna Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.642

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Magna Care Centre is based on 14 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 13.8 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.

After moving my Mother away from another care home how I wish we had found Magna so much sooner. I cannot fault the place. The staff are happy and committed. They work as a team from nurses to housekeeping, from the kitchen to carers they are all dedicated to the residents and go out of their way, on all fronts, to make sure everyone is happy and cared for. The rooms are light and airy with beautiful views. The whole place is spotless. The food is varied and delicious but they are very willing to cater for little whims and fancies. There is a coffee bar for visitors which includes lovely cake! There is a variety of activities which vary from week to week so no boredom here. The residents have regular meetings and are involved in choices & decisions. There are also regular meetings held for families. It is in a quiet rural setting with extensive, accessible grounds. So pleased at the fuss and care they give Mother and the wonderful support they give to me. Definitely a home from home.

My husband had been in Magna Care Centre for more than a year when he first went there from Poole hospital his health was very poor, everybody thought that he wouldn't make it but after a month his health had improved a lot because he was looked after by all the kind and friendly nurses, besides these all the other staff are very nice and helpful as well and always have a smile on their faces and made you felt comfortable to stayed there.
All the rooms and public areas are very clean and tidy and I can move my husband in the wheelchair around the building with no problem.
In the future, I would recommend my friends to come here if they need care.

Magna has improved considerably since the new manager has taken over. Carers are very good although on would like more permanent staff instead of agencies.

My mother took up a residency with Magna Care Centre in November 2015 as from that date to the present date. There had been three managers responsible for the day to day running of the care home. The latest manager has been in position for less than 2 months and has already achieved a notable impact by taking a personal interest with the individual requirements of the residents which is matched by her natural ability and enthusiasm when managing staff members. The manager and deputy are the head of a formidable, skilled and dedicated team working relentlessly, dealing with any issues that might arise concerning the comfort and welfare of the residents. I can go home confidently assured that my mother is in a safe, secure and happy environment. I would not hesitate to commend this establishment to any worried relative facing difficult decisions covering further care of a loved one.

I find this home to be very good. The staff are extremely kind and considerate. Having needed medical care when I first came here (8 years ago) I found this to be first class and am now able to live a nearly normal lifestyle.
