Reviews

9.1 The Fountains Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.088)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for The Fountains Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Fountains Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 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 4.31 for The Fountains Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (30 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.31

  • 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 4.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Fountains Care Centre is based on 7 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.778

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

My great auntie has been a resident at the home for over a year now.
She is always smiling and enjoys the activities that are available.
Staff are friendly and approachable and are always available to answer my questions.
Rooms are clean and tidy and my great auntie has a room with a toilet which is handy for night time.
My great auntie appears happy living in the home and has made friends with other residents, it's nice to see her socialise again as when she lived at home she was unable to get out much.
Overall my opinion on the home is a good one, I would recommend to others which I already do from word of mouth.

My mum has only been at Fountains a short time after moving from another home for various reasons. Already my mum looks cleaner, smells nice etc. She has a lovely room and from what I have seen so far the staff are very nice.

My Mother has been staying in the Fountains since February 2012, and during that time I have had the opportunity to get to know some of the staff well. I can honestly say that I would not do their job for all the tea in China. I live over 5 hours away and yet whenever I phone to ask how mum is the staff here always take the time to reassure
me on all aspects of her health and well being. I visit when I can and am always greeted with a smile and a cheery hello. It is nice to know that mum is in such good hands.

The staff were happy to show me around all areas prior to my husband's admission. I cannot find fault with the care my husband is receiving. Staff have no problem answering any queries I might have.

My mother in law was a resident at The Fountains for six years. During that time, no matter when I visited, I never saw anything but respect and kindness shown towards the residents from the staff.

Our experience from February this year, when my mother in law's dementia was well advanced, and following her breaking her hip, was to see their care go 'above and beyond' what we expected. We had agreed with the doctor that she should just be kept comfortable and stay in bed. However, the staff persevered in managing to get her up in a chair for several hours a day in the residents' lounge, even got her sitting at the table in the dining room, helping her to eat. She had a few more months of a reasonable quality of life.

It was evident that the staff genuinely cared about her well being.
We have no reservations in recommending The Fountains to others.

My mother has been a resident at The Fountains Care Home, Tetney near Grimsby for nearly 2 years since the death of my father. She has severe dementia, diabetes and other age-related medical problems. Her condition is managed extremely well and we are very happy with the overall care she receives. The staff are caring and friendly and Mum is very happy. She always looks clean and well cared for and has her hair done once a week. She enjoys the activities and is happy to participate. Her room is clean and comfortable and she enjoys sitting in one of the lounges with the other residents. The Fountains is always clean and welcoming and we can visit whenever we like without notice.

So happy with the care my aunt received. A great team of staff who were always respectful, kind, patient and professional. Everyone who works here contributes to making The Fountains feel so homely and I was always confident that my aunt received the best possible care at all times.
