Overview

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Kings Park Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kings Park Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.719 for Kings Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (147 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.719

  • 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 3.841 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kings Park Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.341

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

8.6 Kings Park Care Home has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.560) from 17 Reviews

Clare Sheehan, Careline Advisor at Kings Park Care Home responded to this review on 16 May 2018:

Thank you for your review, we value all feedback as this helps us to improve our service where required. We are delighted you are so pleased with the level of service provided at Kings Park and the standard of care given. Our staff team work hard to deliver kind quality care so your comments to this effect are much appreciated. We are happy to share that the refurbishment refresh is currently underway, and the decorators are well on their way to completing the painting. Once finished, new furniture will be added along with soft furnishings and artwork. An indoor garden is also being created and we are sure our Residents and visitors will enjoy the updated changes.

My wife was at Kings Park Care Home for 6 years from August 2011 until passing away late June 2017.
All the time she was there she was well looked after. Always clean and dressed.
How the staff managed I don't know. I would and did regularly recommend the home.

Can't thank the staff of Kings Park Care Home enough for the care and love they gave to my wonderful mum in her last year who sadly passed away despite all their best efforts. I know she was happy here and I couldn't have found anywhere better for her. I would recommend Kings Park Care Home to anyone now needing this level of care and can assure relatives they would have no need to worry about their loved ones.

Dad was admitted in January 2017 after a long stay in hospital and has settled within the home. He enjoys the activities the home offers. The staff are attentive and were keen to know dad's background/family etc prior to admission so they can engage him in conversation. Staff treat residents with dignity and respect. Dad says these girls are great, they look after me well. I am happy with the care he receives.

My dad has been living at Kings Park for about 3 weeks. I have found the staff extremely friendly and supportive. The staff not only do an excellent job in looking after my dad but they are very supportive for us as a family. They understand and have shown empathy when the decision was made that my dad needed nursing care.

My brother and I are so pleased we found Kings Park for our mother. This was by far the best nursing home we found after looking at about ten in the Tameside area. Our mother, who is 101, is really happy with all aspects of Kings Park. The care our mother is getting is exceptional. My brother and I are pleased we found Kings Park for our mother. We would recommend Kings Park to all families who need a loved one looking after.

My husband was transferred to Kings Park after being in hospital for the majority of 3 months. It was overwhelmingly emotional to leave him in surroundings and among staff that we didn't know. However, within the first few days I could see that the level of care and support that he was getting, was wonderful. All the staff were kind and very caring and I realised his needs were being completely met.
I also had support which was much needed and I am extremely grateful for that. I visit regularly and stay for many hours throughout the days. I have seen the care and kindness they give to all the residents who all have different needs. They have been most welcoming to both of us and also to our family and friend. (They too have said how good the level of care is). Over the past fews weeks, I have felt very relieved and satisfied that the staff are providing the appropriate level of care which my husband needs and deserves. I can't thank and praise them enough.

Grandad is happy and is well looked after. He is treated with dignity and the nurses and management are happy to listen and to help with any problems that may arise. He enjoys getting his hair cut, going out for a pub lunch with the care home and he seems to have a great relationship and rapport with staff.

My mum has been in Kings Park Care Home for four years, she has had the best care, and I'm totally satisfied with the management and all the staff. Mum is settled here and we think between us we are giving her all the necessary care and help possible in her final days. God willing.

As a family, we could not be more pleased with the care my mother receives. The home is always clean. My mother's clothes are always clean and her room kept spotlessly. When visiting the staff always speak to us about how mum has been. They always offer a drink and make sure there is somewhere to sit. You can tell that the staff really care for mum and the other residents. The atmosphere in the home is excellent. My mother could not be better cared for.

My aunt has recently moved to this home and this review is based on my first visit. The staff were great and made me feel welcome, they gave me the confidence that my aunt was being looked after and that her needs were being attended to. The home was clean and tidy, the décor was bright and cheerful. My aunts room was also of the same standard. I am quite happy for my aunt to stay here and will post more reviews in due course.
