Reviews

9.3 Parkhill Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.308)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Parkhill Nursing 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Parkhill Nursing 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.

  • 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 4.519 for Parkhill Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.519

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.789 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Parkhill Nursing 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.789

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

Mum has been here for 17 months. The staff are caring, sensitive and go the 'extra mile'. Activities are great! The quizzes are mum's highlight. Mum's become more independent, thanks to the nurses (in partnership with the doctor) this has added to a much better standard of life. Some staff have been there 20+ years and the care reflects this. Many thanks to one and all xx

Mum came to Parkhill Nursing Home in September 2016 following a recommendation from a friend. I'm really happy with the care mum receives and she is treated with dignity and respect. The home is well run and all the staff are very professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending this very caring home.

Since my friend has lived at Parkhill, since 2012. He has been very happy. The atmosphere is superb and the carers treat him like a member of the whole family. Nothing is any trouble and all requests are attended to. My friend has a strong sense of humour and all the carers join in with him. The door to the Manager's office is always open and everybody is very approachable.

Our mum who has Alzheimer's became a resident at Parkhill in Dec 2015. After being in hospital for a long time, her previous care home sent mum there severely dehydrated and delirious then refused to have her back. We didn't think mum would come back from it. It is only due to the wonderful nursing care mum has received at Parkhill, that mum is now doing well. It is an excellent home, mum is treated with care, compassion, respect and dignity which are very important to us and mum. All of the staff are pleasant, cheerful and interact with the residents in a kind and respectful manner. Residents are encouraged to mix in the lounge area, this a homely and cosy atmosphere. Mum's room is beautiful, lovely, light and clean to a high standard. Activities are arranged most days. Food is varied home cooked and looks lovely. The level of cleanliness is above and beyond any other homes we've visited. Security and safety is paramount here. The manager is a great support to us, as are all the staff. Many thanks.

Parkhill is a friendly home and staff are happy. Management are considerate and helpful. The home looking very 'tired' and could do with updating. More access to outside would be good.

My mother has lived at Parkhill got more than 5 years. She came to Parkhill after living in sheltered accommodation for several years. Unfortunately she had several major falls and was becoming increasingly frail and losing her confidence.
She took a while to settle in at Parkhill but she soon regained her confidence and became stronger due to the constant care of the staff. She is comfortable with the routines and they appreciate the fact that she likes to go to her bedroom and night quite early. I like the fact that there is a low turnover of staff and the entertainment programme and Xmas activities are excellent.

My father went into the nursing home in December. The transition from hospital was really simple. The care from everyone in the home is excellent from the manager downwards. It is clean, tidy and very homely. All the carers are pleasant and upbeat. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff. Any questions or requests are dealt with straight away. My father settled almost immediately and with it being Xmas soon after they make a great effort to make it a happy festive time. Have no complaints at all.

All we as a family wanted for our mother was for her to have the best. We feel that she was given the best by a wonderful, very friendly and caring team at Parkhill. Mum was cared for with dignity, respect and compassion. The staff were always helpful and approachable.
We as a family were treated with the same care and compassion that Mum had received, particularly during the last very difficult days of her life, we were totally overwhelmed with what the staff did for us and will never be able to thank them enough.

Robert Delaney, Proprietor at Parkhill Nursing Home responded to this review on 30 Nov 2015:

On behalf of all the staff at Parkhill I would like to thank Catherine and her family for the kind comments she has made about the care we provided for her mother. We regard it as a privilege to be able look after residents and families at such an important time in their lives. The kind comments and appreciation expressed by the families of those we have cared for are an enormous incentive and encouragement to all of us at Parkhill to continue with the care we have provided for more than twenty years. There is no greater incentive for our staff than to know that our care has been so kindly appreciated. We regard ourselves as fortunate to have had the opportunity to add Catherine's mum and her family to the many residents in Tameside that have become our friends over the years.
