Reviews

9.5 Claremont Parkway Care Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.520)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Claremont Parkway 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 62 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Claremont Parkway Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 43 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 4.52 for Claremont Parkway Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (408 Excellents x 5) + (265 Goods x 4) + (25 Satisfactorys x 3) + (8 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 706 Ratings = 4.52

  • 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 Claremont Parkway Care Home is based on 43 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 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 43 Reviews ÷ 13.2 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.

Staff were caring, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was cleaned daily and deep cleaned once a month. There were plenty of toilet facilities for residents and visitors, as well as en-suite rooms.

Meals were satisfactory, but not always hot. It would have been nice to have alcohol and soft drinks available at lunchtime.

Mum was looked after very well. She fell in love with nearly all staff and they were very patient and caring with her. Towards the end of her stay she was reluctant to leave. We needed her closer to home, for more people to visit her. All staff lined up a the door to say goodbye. She was very touched.

I'm generally a critical person. Be that as it may, I could not fault the treatment I have been given. All staff have been truly kind. The room has been very clean and comfortable and food has been plentiful and good. I joined in activities and had exercises, it was social and lots of fun.

My only complaint has been the mattress as although firm, it was not like my own at home as I have a harder one. I am now going home.

My carers were very concerned that I was comfortable and had constant their attention to my needs. There was a good selection of food and hot drinks and I felt much at home and cared for. Many thanks to all.

I was well treated and cared for by everybody concerned with my welfare. I thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment provided and both carers who provided this worked extremely hard and were very caring to us all. The only concern I had was that's there was not enough staff to deal with a number of residents.

Words cannot describe how wonderful this place is! From the top (management) right down the chain. My father was sent here by the hospital and has been a resident for a couple of months and has been treated with the greatest respect. He loves the place and cried when he was told he was going to rehab. The activities are wonderful they do so much with the residents. I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to everyone. We will both miss you all

I found Claremont to be a lovely surprise, you hear so many horror stories and it was a concern to be going into a home, all be it for a short stay.
This home was clean, comfortable and with friendly professional staff, I had one or two issues but having voiced my opinion they were sorted out quickly.
I would like to add that the nurse was excellent and extremely helpful.
Thank you for getting me home.

Having stayed for only 2 days it is difficult to judge some of the questions asked. However, from entering the home I was greeted with kindness. I have found the staff to be very professional. Safety is high on the list of care. Unfortunately, I have not had time to join in the activities provided. My overall view can be summed up by the fact that I have always dreaded the thought of having to enter a care home - any short spell in Claremont Parkway has changed that.

Nice, friendly staff and always happy to help, although my Nan didn't get any breakfast one morning, she was only offered some when we said to staff about it at 11 am. She was having her lunch soon after and didn't feel hungry. However, they have nice rooms and my Nan has a view onto the garden. You get a TV so they won't get bored. The family are welcome at any time of the day and you are able to take anything in for it to feel homely for the resident.

I was very concerned when transferred from the hospital to Claremont Parkway, I was pleasantly surprised. The home is light and airy in lovely grounds. The food is good and varied, catering for a vegetarian diet. All the staff are pleasant and helpful. There was various entertainment available if you wished to participate. There are tea and coffee facilities available at all times for service users and their family. The home is easily accessible for visiting.

Claremont staff looked after my mother very well. She needed respite care having been in hospital for two weeks she wasn't able to return home and Claremont looked after her needs until she could move to another home. They encouraged her to eat and to participate in activities. The staff seemed to enjoy working there and were really cheerful.

Mum was brought here following a 5-week stay in the hospital. From the first day that she arrived, she has been treated with respect and compassion. Every member of staff we have encountered have all had a caring attitude. This was mums 1st experience of being cared for outside her home and we will always be grateful that it has been so positive. The care she received has returned her sense of humour and fun that had been taken during her illness. She will miss the staff she has become so fond of.

Staff absolutely amazing, feel as if they couldn't do enough for our mum. She was given lots of encouragement to join in all the activities offered. The family were made very welcome and could visit any time open door policy. They kept us in the loop at all times about mum's care.

My mum came to the care home under c/o the hospital after 10 weeks in hospital. During this time she became muddled and disoriented, since coming to Claremont she has shown rapid improvement. She is encouraged to eat meals in the dining room and chat to other residents. The staff are all very caring and supportive. Although she remains totally dependent, we can see moments of the real mum. Thank you.

In general dad has been well looked after, he has been a bit concerned that some of the basics seemed variable. E.g.
Glasses left dirty
Hearing aids fitted but not working
Hair not washed - we did it twice
Feet not washed, dressing not changed - we washed feet. He has been given a shower this week after my request.

Bethany Gibbons, Marketing Assistant at Claremont Parkway Care Home responded to this review on 25 Jul 2016:

Thank you very much for your feedback. We welcome all comments that will help us to improve our services.
We are sorry that BS has not been happy with some of the aspects of care provided. Following a discussion with myself, the Home Manager, on 22th July 2016, BS felt that these were minor issues and that his Dad has been well looked after on the whole during his time at Claremont. He would be very happy for his father to return to Claremont Parkway and this is something that we will discuss further.
If there is anything else you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact customercare@brighterkind.com or pop into the home anytime. Many thanks, Anne Hillary, Home Manager.

Wonderful staff, nothing too much trouble. Activities good, keep the minds of the residents active. Food good, can cater for most tastes including vegetarians. Rooms large and very clean much like home. Would recommend the home to anyone very welcoming.

I visit my friend on a monthly basis, we know each other from church. The home appears to be very comfortable and suits all of her needs. The staff I have met are friendly and helpful. The lounge area is always occupied by residents albeit most of them are sleeping.

Our mum was moved here on 27th December 2016 until she passed away on 29th February 2016. The care, love and compassion received by both our mum and ourselves was outstanding. All staff were friendly and welcoming, always has time to talk, no matter what time or how busy they were. Nothing was too much bother for them.

My friend has been transferred from 'care' to 'nursing care' this month. Nothing appears to have changed with regards to response time to call button e.g 20-30 minutes sometimes and she is still waiting for too long for medication when requested. She has asked the manager to go and speak to her but without response. We are constantly having to pacify her because she feels neglected and made to feel a nuisance with the staff. Our observations are that there are so few staff on duty they are seldom available to help her. Staffing shortages affect both residents and the staff themselves!

I would like to express our thanks for the preparations and decoration by the activities organiser for my mother's 96th birthday celebration. The buffet prepared by the chef and catering staff was excellent and the birthday cake was magnificent. Thank you to all concerned.
