Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Cornmill Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cornmill 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 8 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 4.856 for Cornmill Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (145 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.856

  • 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 4.769 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cornmill Nursing Home is based on 8 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.769

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

9.6 Cornmill Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.625) from 14 Reviews

Excellent nursing home, the best nursing home in the country by far. Such a shame my mother only lasted about 3 weeks as she had been very poorly with substandard care in a previous home - just terrible - but the staff at Cornmill are amazing, kind, compassionate and very professional. Just everything was top quality - the room and setting view from mother's double room was excellent.
Thank you Cornmill.

The Cornmill Nursing Home is set in beautiful surroundings and provides first-class nursing and care services. The rooms are beautifully furnished and there are lots of little personal touches which do help the Cornmill to be a genuine home from home. Friends and relatives are made very welcome and encouraged to join in the many varied activities. My late husband suffered from Parkinson's disease and was very severely disabled. He could do very little for himself. I knew that he was safe and happy in high-class surroundings. This was a great comfort to me during his illness and I received wonderful support from the Cornmill Nursing Home.

Dear Mrs W
Very many thanks for your most kind and appreciative comments and for taking the time to complete our surveys. I shall convey your appreciation to all the staff. We shall all retain many fond memories of your husband's stay at the Cornmill. You are always welcome to pop in whenever passing.

The team and management at Cornmill Nursing Home are caring and professional. My dad was treated with dignity and respect during his time at Cornmill Nursing Home. End of life care was provided with the utmost care and respect. My dad was cared for with amazing care provided by amazing staff especially in the weeks prior and at death.

Dear A G
Thank you for your appreciative comments which I will pass on to all staff. We shall all retain many fond memories of your fathers stay at the Cornmill.

We chose the Cornmill Nursing Home for my wife after some research and we were not disappointed. The home even laid on a meal for several of us on my wife's birthday.

Dear Phil S
Thank you for your review, I am extremely pleased you thought the care received was first class. It is a shame your Uncle was not with us for a longer period.

All I can say it was very good. But expensive.

Dear Roy W
Thank you for your review. We do maintain strict controls on our expenditure and we continue to invest in upgrading the fabric, equipment and facilities we provide for our residents. Please be assured that every effort is made to keep fees as low as possible whilst providing the highest quality of nursing care.

Cornmill Nursing Home is a lovely place. Picturesque building and very pretty location. Inside it is spotlessly clean, well-maintained, peaceful and homely. The staff are wonderful, they can't do enough for you and food looks delicious. Sadly my mother was only a resident here for a few weeks. I had hoped that she would have enjoyed her last few years here but her illness quickly took over.

I would recommend Cornmill Nursing Home to anyone without hesitation.

Dear C S
Thank you for your kind comments. The staff are always most appreciative of thanks from a resident's family. I will pass your praise onto them.

This was Mum's third and final care home as I'd wheeled her out of the first two in disgust.
The treatment and care she was given in the Cornmill was second to none. She was almost treated as family by the staff, many of whom were deeply upset by her passing.
If only all care homes were run like the Cornmill.

Dear Mr Dandy
Thank you so much for your positive review of the Cornmill. We do place much emphasis on ensuring our staff provide a person centred caring service for our residents. We shall all retain many fond and treasured memories of your mother's stay at the Cornmill.

I am confident that my husband is well cared for. I know he has a good relationship with staff especially those members of staff who provide his nursing care.

Throughout the difficult aftermath of flooding in November 2015 the owners have done their level best to ensure that it was "business as usual" and they are to be commended for their resolution in the face of such difficulties.

My father has lived in the Cornmll for over a year. Since arriving (in a very weakened state from hospital) he has not looked back. He is cared for by staff who are professional, efficient, caring and respectful. He is listened to and wherever possible his wishes are met. He says "nothing is too much trouble for them".
His sense of humour has returned and he feels very comfortable in the very clean and pleasant environment. He has recently had a downturn in his condition, the staff have reacted promptly and will always find time to discuss aspects of care with relatives, if asked. My father's siblings visit and again they think The Cornmill is a very caring home in a wonderful setting.

One word FANTASTIC! This is a real home from home where the needs of the residents are of the utmost importance. Nothing is too much trouble and family members are also supported. My Uncle is happy and safe and I know that he is getting the best care possible. The staff are amazing and the Matron and Manager are always available.

George Hill, Director at Cornmill Nursing Home responded to this review on 27 Jun 2016:

Dear Ms C
Thank you for the detailed and reassuring comments. They are very much welcome and I will certainly inform the staff of your appreciation.

Both my parents have been resident at the Cornmill for intermittent periods from January 2016. Throughout they have been cared for in the highest professional manner and also with real concern and kindness. Recently my father returned for end of life care before his death. During this time I was kept fully informed and encouraged to spend time with him. After his death the family were supported well and given useful practical help. My mother is currently a resident and I have complete peace of mind that she is safe and being cared for in the best possible way. Whilst all the staff have been good at caring for my parents I would like to especially praise the Matron for the exceptional help and support she has given to my parents and the family.

Dear Ms H
Very many thanks for your positive comments. They are much appreciated by everyone at the Cornmill.

My mother has been in The Cornmill for four years, during this time mum's needs have changed a great deal. Whatever her needs they have always been fully understood and met by staff and facilities at The Cornmill. Mum has been comfortable, happy and content during her stay, and I have been able to resume a more normal life style feeling confident that mum is well looked after.

Dear Mrs C
Thank you for your very many positive compliments. They are very much appreciated.

Of all the homes for Mum that we visited Cornmill is far and away the best. The accommodation is excellent and the food, very important for Mum, is of a very high standard. We appreciate the entertainment and activities provided to stimulate the residents. Mum knows she is very lucky to have a room there and we are very fortunate that the nursing care takes away all our worries about her health.
