Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for The Boynes Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Boynes Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.652 for The Boynes Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (54 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.652

  • 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 The Boynes Care Centre is based on 17 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 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.

9.7 The Boynes Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.652) from 17 Reviews

My dog and I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting The Boynes Care Centre for the past 3 years. The staff have always been most interested in us both coming each Tuesday and seeing the benefit the residents get from contact with the dog.

My needs here at The Boynes are met with full accomplishment. The care here is outstanding. I love to go out especially for pub lunches and shopping trips, which are provided here. I feel like I have made some really great friendships here with residents as well as staff members. Everything is kept clean and tidy which is a great attribution.
I am looked after very well and would not go anywhere else. Thank you to all of the kind and caring staff here.

I am thoroughly enjoying my stay here at The Boynes. I have been on trips that I would not normally go on at home and I have made some wonderful friends.
My stay at The Boynes has been most enjoyable, I will be very sad to leave in June but I am going to try and come back again soon for respite.
Absolutely brilliant!

My mum was a resident here from June '16 up until when she passed away on 10th February 2018.

During the time mum was here, she was given first-class care. All the staff were attentive at all times. The staff always made me feel welcome.

Welcoming staff on arrival, nice airy light room. Food is always good. It is good to be offered trips out.

I would prefer to be got up in the morning earlier but realise this is a problem with everyone waiting to get up and not the staff around to do everyone at the same time.

Aileen Nimmo, Sales and Marketing Manager at The Boynes Care Centre responded to this review on 29 Jan 2018:

Home manager Debbie Williams would like to thank you for taking the time to review the home and hopes that you return for a respite stay again soon. She was pleased that you liked the food and the light airy room and enjoyed the trips out. Debbie would like to make sure your next visit that you are up at the time which best suits you, and so invites you to meet with her again next time to ensure it is included in your care package.

Our stepfather resided at the home for approximately 18 months. The care, dignity, warmth and love they gave to him was second to none. We were very lucky to have found such a place for him to end his days with dignity and surrounded by people who cared. I shall always be grateful to all the staff who made it easier to know he was safe and well cared for when I was far away.

When we found out our father would be attending Boynes, we dropped in announced beforehand and were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff who showed us around. We found the home well presented, clean and comfortable.
Our father was discharged from hopsital to Boynes with a history of dementia and depression. If our father does not take his medication, be can be a difficult resident to deal with, which has been the case at Boynes. With the help of the care workforce at Boynes, we have noticed our father is settled and in a better place both physically and mentally and seems happy.

My mother has been a resident of The Boynes Care Home for almost five years. As a family, we had looked at several homes in the area but as soon as we walked through the door of The Boynes we knew that this was where we wanted mum cared for. The atmosphere was very homely and friendly. The staff are welcoming at all times and the care and compassion they give the residents in their care is second to none. They spend time with the residents and do their utmost to ensure the care and dignity that the elderly deserve are well met. There are lots of activities to engage and stimulate the residents. Trips out in the summer and social events to involve the families. My mother will be 93 this summer and I am sure that without the care and love she has received from all the staff we would no longer have her with us. All in all, I cannot say how grateful we all are as a family for the excellent care mum receives.
