Reviews

9.4 Priory Court Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.399)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Priory Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Priory Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 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 4.482 for Priory Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (92 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 197 Ratings = 4.482

  • 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 4.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Priory Court Care Home is based on 11 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.917

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

Lovely care home, needs more coffee cups and a pleasanter place for people to smoke, instead of being obliged to sit in a damp corner next to a dustbin, six feet away from a high hedge which allows no sunlight.
As a paying resident, I think they should be allowed to smoke in the garden where they so choose.

Wonderful caring staff, this nursing home is more like a hotel with amazing facilities and high standards of cleanliness and furnishings, including a cinema room serving popcorn and sweets when showing old movies and private dining room for residents to entertain the family.
Daily entertainment program incorporating all festivals and celebrations with quality musicians and singers. Highly recommended, my dad has been in 4 nursing homes over the years and this is the absolute best.

We phoned prior to making a long distance visit to a friend who has recently moved there and were most impressed to find we were expected when we arrived the following day. The welcome was warm and friendly, we were escorted to our friend's room and immediately offered a hot drink. An excellent first impression. We have experience of visiting many care homes but the spaciousness and quality of Priory Court and it's furniture and fittings is more in keeping with a high-quality hotel. The resident's rooms are larger than most, well decorated and equipped including a wet room. When leaving we were offered a tour and were impressed to see the spacious dining room, the private dining room for residents, parties and the cinema room with its sweet store! All the staff we met were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. We feel our friend could not be in a better place and are confident that she will be well cared for.

The home has a warm and friendly atmosphere. All the staff from reception when you enter carers, cleaners, kitchen staff and manager all provide an excellent standard of care with a smile. My late mother was beautifully cared for in the three months she was a resident. I couldn't have asked for more. I was always kept fully informed regarding her care. The highest accolade I can give is that it is where I want to be if I need care.

The home does wonderful things and has made a big difference to my wife. The care is excellent and also the friendships. Even the little things that is done for me. My wife has advanced Parkinson's with a severe disability but even at times like my Birthday, Valentines, Wedding Anniversary and Christmas, some members have gone to the trouble of getting a card for me and putting it from my wife. I have never found out who gets them but it means so much to us.

In its revamped form Priory Court aims for and achieves the "luxury hotel" look. Everything is in its place and looks right. Staff are attentive, the food is generally good, there is a programme of activities which are posted on Facebook. And yet. My mother doesn't want to live in a luxury hotel. She wants companionship above all else. The residents' lounges are normally empty. Most residents appear to spend their days in their own rooms. If your elderly relative is happy with his or her own company, Priory Court could be a good fit. It wasn't for my mother.

My mother was bedridden for the last 5 months of her life. She was well cared for and had all her personal care needs met. The staff, especially the nurses, communicated well with the family and kept us informed of any changes. The house is being upgraded and the better environment has had a positive impact on staff and residents.

My dad has stayed in a number of care homes around the area, and this is by far the best. It is outstanding, particularly since being taken over by avery, and the new manager. Exceptional comfort, entertainment and warmth from almost all carers

The home was always very clean and tidy. Facilities were very good, as was the food. We found all the staff were very kind to my mother and treated her with the utmost dignity (although she could be difficult). At first we considered placing her in a cheaper home (saving £800 per month) but we are now pleased we did not!
