Rowans Care Centre, Macclesfield, Cheshire

Rowans Care Centre is a purpose built 36 bedded home in a quiet area of Macclesfield. Within close distance of the town centre, Rowans is situated next to a small school and is conveniently located on a regular bus route with access to a number of local shops.

The Care Centre specialises in a range of care for the elderly from assistance with basic living tasks through to elderly nursing clients and clients with dementia and related difficulties.

Rowans has been extensively refurbished to a high standard; the addition of an extension has provided a large lounge conservatory living area on the ground floor. In addition, there is a smaller; quiet 'Reminiscence' lounge and family kitchen located on the second floor.

Bedrooms are single occupancy and are located on both floors, with passenger lift access to the first floor. All bedrooms and communal areas are fitted with a call bell system so that staff assistance can be obtained quickly.

Rowans is a very warm, welcoming and vibrant home with a dedicated activities team who run sherry mornings, bingo sessions, games/exercise, arts/crafts and baking sessions. Regular entertainment is provided for residents including a piano player who visits the home on a weekly basis.

Additionally, Rowans Care Centre works very closely with the voluntary group 'Food for Macc’ who work with the local community to encourage and support people to grow their own vegetables.

Rowans experienced strong crops which has provided the centre with a great selection of fresh vegetables.

Rowans Care Centre is passionate about client care; the dedicated management and staff ensure that Rowans is a home from home for all residents.

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Rowans Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rowans Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.583 for Rowans Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 3.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rowans Care Centre 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.417

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

Since my mother entered this care home 9 months ago I have never failed to be impressed by the staff - each member if dedicated and caring and, however difficult the circumstances, all of the residents are shown compassion and respect. Staff members take time to talk and listen to residents and, if there are any concerns, these are quickly dealt with to the satisfaction of the residents.

When I was visiting care homes looking for a place for my mother, I felt the relaxed and friendly atmosphere as soon as I entered The Rowans. The home was clean and fresh smelling, unlike all the others I visited. There is an unhurried pace to The Rowans, not regimented, residents choose how to spend the day, not all placed in the lounge at 9.00am. The rooms, activities, garden, vegetable plot are all well kept and the staff are caring and fond of the residents in my experience.
