Reviews

9.9 The Old Rectory Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.885)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for The Old Rectory 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 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Old Rectory Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.885 for The Old Rectory Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (223 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 The Old Rectory Nursing Home is based on 19 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 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target Reached = 1

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

The resident was reluctant to stay in a home, but age and disability made it necessary. Now she is extremely comfortable. She is always well presented. The carers know her well. She is eating well and we are kept in contact and up to date. The home and rooms are clean, comfortable and bright. Visitors are always welcomed. There seems to be enough staff.

From my first meeting, with the matron, I was impressed by her friendliness and openness. My father, unfortunately, was not at The Old Rectory's care for long, but the care and attention he received from all the staff was serious to none. The support and dignity which he receives over the last days of his life was so appreciated by my family, it helped us through the difficult time of losing a loved one.

Mum has been at The Old Rectory for four years now and we have nothing but praise for the home.
Mum has always been treated with the utmost care and respect while making the environment a happy place to be.
A great deal of trouble is taken to celebrate special occasions and also plan everyday activities which Mum thoroughly enjoys.
The home and gardens provide a lovely nurturing atmosphere.

Every member of staff from domestic, catering, carers and nursing staff were excellent. Everyone showed a caring and compassionate attitude. At times my parents were treated with dignity and respect in their final days. As a family, we were kept informed of any changes in their health and nothing was too much trouble, The home itself was clean and set in a beautiful setting. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursing home.

The Old Rectory provides my mother with a real "home from home". The standard of care is exemplary. She is at all times, provided with excellent care from staff who treat her with dignity. The staff are bright and fun. They are well trained. There is a happy atmosphere at The Old Rectory and lots of laughter. The house is spotlessly clean. I am impressed with the standard of care both practical and nursing. My mother's health has improved since she moved in. The staff are alert to her needs. She is well nourished and I am very satisfied with her care.

My mother has been a resident at this nursing home for just over twelve months and I have been very happy with overall care and standards during this time.
The one point that concerns me at times is the response when the toilet is needed. She is sometimes expected to wait which is difficult. This is a minor point.
The staff, from matron down, are excellent. My mother has all the care she required and this is delivered to the highest standard.
I would have no reservations in recommending this home.

I've always found the staff at The Old Rectory caring, kind and helpful to all the residents. They are pleasant to residents and visitors alike and sympathetic despite having some difficult and awkward residents from time to time. The Old Rectory is a clean bright, comfortable home with home cooked meals on the premises. There are well-kept gardens where the staff ensure residents who wish to can sit outside on warm summer days. All residents are well cared for which includes all medical needs.

My mother has been a resident at The Old Rectory Nursing Home for 10 months and during this time she has been looked after with the utmost dedication by all the staff. The home is a friendly place and the fact that so many of the staff have been there for many years speaks volumes for the way the home is managed from the owners down to the care staff. The cleanliness is very good and although my mother has dementia and can't remember what she has eaten the food always looks good and freshly cooked. I would have no hesitation in recommending the home to others.

The staff are always friendly and caring. The rooms are well designed and nicely decorated. The home is well maintained. Mum loves spending time in the garden in the summer and really enjoys the trips out. This help expands horizons which can get limited with time spent in care. There are also lots of other activities on the site compared to the previous home my mother was in. Mum has more opportunity to choose elements of her own care. I would not hesitate to recommend the Old Rectory to anyone looking for a good friendly caring home for their relative.

As a Chief executive of a local Hospice, I cannot recommend the Old Rectory Nursing Home highly enough. My mother was admitted to hospital after a major stroke in March 2015 and was given 6 months to live. She was transferred to the Old Rectory in June 2015 and they gave my mum a new lease of life. Having looked at a number of nursing homes, my siblings and I know that we made the right decision for my mum which, as a consequence, has been the right decision for us as a family. Although my mum cannot speak or walk, she is engaged fully in life. The routine nature of the care gives my mum security but the varied range of activities enables her to look forward to the future. The staff give her respect, dignity and a purpose. The excellent management team promote patient centred care throughout the home, delivered by all staff. The staff are attentive, caring, enthusiastic and professional. The food is nutritious, varied and tasty. Cleanliness and infection control is extremely high.

Excellent location, lovely setting and grounds. Mother's room is large and homely - great garden views. Staff are very professional, kind, patient, friendly and caring. Mum has a lot of attention. Food is very varied and good home cooked dishes. Activities are varied and often. The atmosphere is homely, friendly and open. I feel very comfortable that my mother is receiving the best care possible. A big thank you to all - your care and service is very much appreciated by me.

Due to mums deteriorating health we had to move mum from a residential to a nursing home on her release from hospital. We could not have wished for anything better than we have with The Old Rectory. The staff all have the residents care and welfare at the heart of everything they do. EVERY member of the team take time to inform family members how their loved one is doing, feeling, what they've eaten, what they've enjoyed. We were told mum would never get out of bed again and that life expectancy was around 2 months. The team have worked with us all to get mum up, firstly fully supported but now to where mum is supporting herself. This allows mum to be able to mix with other residents and to see what is going on rather than be on her own in her room. Mum is now able to converse with us (every word is valuable, even just acknowledgement that she knows we are there! )
I can not praise or thank the team enough for the quality they have restored to mums time left with us. We hear so many sad stories of poor care that it is really important that we take the time to raise awareness and thank not just good but GREAT nursing care. Thank you all.
