Reviews

9.8 Guide Lane Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.803)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Guide Lane Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 36 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Guide Lane Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.803 for Guide Lane Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (349 Excellents x 5) + (79 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 431 Ratings = 4.803

  • 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 Guide Lane Care Home is based on 21 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 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 8.2 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 very good with my wife and treated her with dignity and respect. The staff supported me and made me smile even though we all knew my beloved wife would not be there for long.

The food was excellent and time was taken to ensure my wife's custard consistency food was correct.

The management were fantastic. They always had time for me if I needed a quick word or was unsure about anything.

There were a couple of blips at first but these were soon rectified.
My wife's room was only small but as she was bed bound toileting was not an issue.

There were trips out and activities but my wife could not take advantage of these due to her condition.

My grandmother was assessed for nursing care in February 2017. I looked at numerous homes and felt that Guide Lane would be the best to meet her needs. It also came with a recommendation from the residential home she was in. Nana came to Guide Lane in June, and within the short time she has been here, the difference in her is quite remarkable. She is far more alert, tries to communicate more effectively, and has gained weight. The staff have been lovely and the transition seamless. I didn't think we would find a better care home than the one she was in but Guide Lane is an exceptional place.

My husband was resident in Guide Lane Care Home for seven months until he died 4th January 2017. He was very ill and most of the time unable to leave his bed. Our family were devastated and we had no option but to agree to his admission. However, it was our best decision as he was treated with dignity and kindness and the best care possible, the nurses and carers could not have done a better job and have our utmost admiration and thanks.

My mother-in-law spent the last nine months of her life in this care home. She received the best care that anyone could wish for. Due to her dementia, she could be difficult at times but staff always treated her with respect and dignity. The home is clean, modern and the atmosphere is always welcoming when visiting. The staff are so caring, friendly and always willing to help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this care home.

My dad was resident here from June 2016 until he sadly passed away. The care he received in the nursing home was exceptional. The nurses and the carers treated him as we, his family, would. He was quite difficult at first and it took a while for him to accept that he couldn't go home but the carers were marvellous and gradually he came to accept it with their help. All the carers were just that - caring people- and made my dad's last few months as pain free and stress free as they could.

Staff are always on the go doing something, washing residents, hoisting/moving residents, answering doors, helping with food etc. etc.
The home is always clean and smells fresh. The staff always have time to answer the residents and visitors alike. They share a laugh with each other and visitors. They seem content.
The manager runs a tight but relaxed ship!
Myself and my partner visit separately, but think the same.

I can't recommend this place enough, the staff are very hard working, even under stress they are always polite and welcoming. I've been sat with my friend and all residents are all well looked after, even when some may not have a visitor, the staff go out of their way to have a chat with them. My friend is extremely well looked after and very happy here. The staff pop in to see if we're ok and need anything and they keep us informed if my friend needs anything. Also, all the food looks really nice. (Well done everyone)

I have been so impressed by all the staff involved in mum's care. The manager has facilitated the transition so well and been really involved in the process. She is a real presence in the home, not just an administrator. Her team of staff are excellent. The level of dignity maintained is beyond comparison, cleanliness is clearly a priority. There is a great range of activities. A home from home.

My mother-in-law has just celebrated her 95th birthday. She has been a resident of Guide Lane Care Home for several years and, on this occasion, the manager and staff said that they would be pleased to hold a birthday party, here at the home. They provided all the refreshments and (oh joy of joys!!) included in the arrangements, was "a singer".

The family provided a birthday cake and, most generously we thought, Guide Lane gave us all the most beautiful afternoon. The whole place sang, danced and had a very happy, memorable afternoon. We cannot thank the entire staff enough. It is a warm, wonderful place staffed by kind, thoughtful people (and we thought this even before we had the party!).

Having had a previous extremely poor experience of a nursing home, this place could not be more different. All the staff I meet are open and friendly and show a very caring manner to the residents. My parent can be quite confused but any comments made are dealt with calmly and staff show a clear understanding of the needs. They are also very helpful on advising if additional clothes or support are required. My parent needs full mobility care and yet dignity is considered always.
Essentially, this is a wonderful place and has greatly eased any guilt I may have felt on using a home for my parent's care :)
I could go on.. but it's all very positive!

Since my wife developed vascular dementia in Oct 2015 I was at my wits end. Then a breath of fresh air came into my life by the way of the care home at Guide Lane, the care she has received is next to none, the staff are the best and keep you up to date about everything. If I had to go in a home Guide Lane Care Home would do for me.

First looked at the home online to see how good the government figures were. Having been impressed by those me and my father came for a visit to the home, after being shown round by the lovely manageress, deciding this was the home for my mum. It was the correct decision and we have been suitably impressed since. This is the only home we looked at it's fantastic and the staff are amazing so caring and friendly.

My mother lived at Guide Lane Care Home for approximately four years until her death in May this year.

During this time Mum was cared for in a compassionate, friendly and professional manner and our family and friends who visited her as often as possible were always impressed with the caring yet relaxed atmosphere of the home and we were always pleased to see Mum looking happy, tidy and well-dressed.

Sadly, Mum died in May, aged 95, but thankfully passed away in her own room in comfort and with great dignity.

We cannot thank all the staff enough for their kindness and patience and for the way they looked after Mum with a ready smile and cared for her in friendship as as well as professionalism.

Description:

Introducing Julie Richardson
Home Manager at Guide Lane, Audenshaw

What does kindness mean to you?

“For me, kind care means being attentive and promoting self-worth as much as possible.”

As a Registered Nurse, Julie has over 20 years’ experience in providing care and support for older people to enrich their lives. She is a knowledgeable and dedicated leader who is passionate about delivering the highest possible standards in care and quality of life for Residents.

Having worked at Guide Lane for many years, Julie closely shares HC-One’s vision in aiming to provide the kindest care for each and every Resident. She uses her experience to motivate her team to deliver care and support in a way that Residents gain the most benefit, in a warm and welcoming home.

She also works hard to arrange events and activities with nearby organisations and is always quick to welcome the local community to Guide Lane.

When asked what she enjoys most about her role, Julie remarked: “I relish the challenge of making sure our Residents are cared for appropriately.”

Outside of work, Julie enjoys travelling abroad, usually on the back of her husband’s motorbike!

If you would like to find out more information about Guide Lane, Julie has an ‘Open Door Policy’ and would be pleased to welcome you for an informal discussion.
