  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Park House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.677 for Park House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.677

  • 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 Park House Nursing Home is based on 8 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). 8 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 1.000

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

My husband is very well cared for and when I visit I can leave knowing he couldn't be better cared for elsewhere. Always warmly welcomed by staff and any problems are dealt with immediately. Very friendly happy atmosphere.

My Father was resident at Park House for almost 6 years. In that time he was very well cared for considering his way with people.

I visited every week and found the home to be cheerful, bright and clean and always smelling sweet. It is an old building in part and beautifully decorated and furnished.

My Dad had his own place in the sitting room where he could 'keep an eye on everyone'. His bedroom was small but beautifully formed, cosy might describe it better. It was always clean and made homely by a few of his personal things around him.

Throughout his stay, he was under the impression he was in a hotel and treated the staff accordingly. He was treated with respect and dignity even though he was a cantankerous old man.

He lived until a few days short of his 98th Birthday and that was mainly thanks to the love and care of the staff, to whom I will always be grateful for making his last years happy.

I miss my visits to the home and seeing the wonderful staff there.

Dad has been at Park House for 8 years and went in for 1 week respite but wasn't allowed home. Park House staff have always treated him with the utmost dignity and respect. Nothing is too much trouble. He is now bedridden and doesn't know us but he is cared for so well and we wouldn't want him anywhere else. Thank you to everyone for their amazing work.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Park House Nursing Home to families looking for a safe, loving, and caring sanctuary for their loved ones.
In my experience, the staff and management of Park House Nursing Home are second to none and the owners of the home should be very proud of them and continue their support of them. My father was a resident for nearly four months and in that time, I visited very often but at different days of the week and at different times of the day. I always found the same thing, a happy, contented and settled father who was obviously looked after, respected and happy with very friendly and attentive staff all who displayed patience and kindness and worked well as a team. The nursing home got to know my father so well that any slight change in his manner or demeanour was quickly noticed and we were notified immediately of any concerns they had. They supported us as a family and I think went beyond their duties to enable us to cope with a very distressing time in our lives.

The staff at Park House are very caring, they work extremely hard but are always pleasant and cheerful. They make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. My mum suffers from dementia and during her time here she has received excellent nursing care and we are involved in all important decisions. All the residents are treated with respect and dignity. I feel extremely fortunate that she is able to live here and be loved and cared for by an amazing team of people.
