  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for John Joseph Powell Nursing & Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.661 for John Joseph Powell Nursing & Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (155 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 221 Ratings = 4.661

  • 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 John Joseph Powell Nursing & Care Centre is based on 9 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 1.000

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

9.7 John Joseph Powell Nursing & Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.661) from 19 Reviews

My brother got good care and attention while staying in John Joseph. Staff were friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help him and I cannot thank the staff enough for what they did for him. My sincere thanks to all. God bless. xxx

While I have been here I have received the best care. My room is kept clean and tidy. The food is quite good. I enjoy the entertainment provided such as bingo, dominoes and now and then a party with a singer. We also have handicrafts which is very enjoyable.

Clare Sheehan, Careline Advisor at John Joseph Powell Nursing & Care Centre responded to this review on 26 Apr 2018:

Thank you for your review; we value all feedback as this allows us to improve our service where required. Thank you also for your positive and constructive response, we strive to provide excellent service for all our Residents at all times. A recent unfortunate incident resulted in the day nursing staff having to take unexpected leave and the home being supported by agency nursing staff from preferred providers. The same staff were requested for consistency of care and I am happy to confirm that we have our full complement of nursing staff back in the home.

My mum was taken to hospital with an infection. When she returned to the care home a few days later, many members of the care team made a point of asking how she was and coming to see her. The obvious warmth and affection shown by the staff was really great to see. Mum was very happy when she saw her 'friend' again after being very unwell.

This Nursing Home has a new manager who is proving to be a "hands-on manager" who is initiating positive changes throughout the home.

The staff are caring and kind and the general ambience is good.

My wife entered the home on the 14th September after leaving hospital where it was confirmed she had a terminal illness.
From then on, she slowly deteriorated despite the excellent attention she received from the staff and especially the nurses.
I cannot speak too highly of all the staff.

I was recommended John Joseph Powell care home by the nurses in the hospital for the best care for my father as he was very poorly and I needed peace of mind that my father was looked after with compassionate care and help. All nurses and staff are very loving and I know my dad is settled here.

We couldn't have asked for better care for our Mum. She was in John Joseph Powell as she needed 24hr nursing care, she received this and much much more. The staff were all extremely caring and treat everyone with love, dignity and respect.

I cannot speak highly enough of this care home and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

My father was resident in John Joseph Powell Memorial Home for twenty months until his death. I always found the staff to be efficient and thorough and feel that they had a genuine affection for the residents they were looking after and took their caring role very responsibly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone enquiring on behalf of their own relative.

My mother was in this home until her death. The staff were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them. Everyday we went and was always asked if we wanted anything to eat or drink. The home was spotless, the rooms were always clean my mum praised it. She liked being there. I am glad she spent her last days there. Thanks to all the staff

My friend moved in due to ongoing ill health and home care being insufficient for her needs. She settled in immediately and made to feel comfortable right from the start. She regarded ( and introduced) the staff as 'my friend' and I think that this connection was very important to her. In my view she was well cared for, treated with respect and consideration. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff. During her final hours, two members of staff stayed behind after their shift to be with her (as they had promised her). I was really touched by their dedication.
