  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pytchley Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.12 for Pytchley Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 92 Ratings = 4.12

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pytchley Court Care Home is based on 6 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). 6 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.750

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

8.9 Pytchley Court Care Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.870) from 8 Reviews

My wife has been in residence since August 2017. I have found the home better than her previous. She has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's since 2014. Pytchley is close to my/our house and is very convenient, allowing me to visit daily. As I have only her previous home to compare with, Pytchley is much better for her and issues I have had have been dealt with reasonably and I am hoping the standard is kept up.

My mother is unable to walk and needs a hoist operated by two staff. She has occasional visits to the doctor/hospital/dentist and is accompanied by a carer. I have to provide soap, toothpaste and tissues for her, which surprised me but might be a general requirement of all care homes.
She sits in the dayroom and watches television and occasionally attends a short concert put on for the residents with appropriate vintage music. She tends to keep to herself and at the age of 92 this is unlikely to change, but I think the idea of residents being interviewed and a book of memories being kept is a good one and could benefit future generations. The staff are caring and respond to all her needs.

I have found all the staff to be very kind, friendly and attentive to residents.
I feel my father is very well cared for.
He looks well looked after - clean, tidy, comfortable and happy.
They tend to his needs very well and despite his shortcomings in communication, they managed to get to know him well and understand his character in a short space of time.
Medically they are very on the ball and well equipped to deal with a wide range of health issues.

My mother has only been in your care for a few weeks she has low blood pressure the staff are monitoring it regularly. I am very very happy that she is out of her bed and is sitting in the lounge instead of being confined to her room all day. The carers ask her how she is feeling and if there are any signs of her blood pressure dropping they take her back to bed. All staff are very friendly and approachable if any assistance is required. I feel confident that my mother is receiving the care that is required.
