Hollins Bank is a friendly care home on the outskirts of Blackpool, but still only 900m from the famous ‘Golden Mile’. It offers excellent care, friendly staff and a cosy, safe environment. The home provides care for up to 40 residents, in single and shared rooms over two floors, whilst a communal space is found in three lounges and a dining room.

Hollins Bank is surrounded by garden areas that are accessible for wheelchairs via a ramp, so all residents can enjoy spending time outside. They can also get involved in regular activities organised by a dedicated activity co-ordinator, from sensory exercises and movie watching, to music events or seasonal arts and crafts. It is close to local shops and has good public transport links.

The home has had a chequered past, but under recent new management there has been nothing but improvement, investment and clear recognition from relevant authorities that this is a genuinely new ‘Hollins Bank’. The management and staff are awaiting the next CQC inspection with a quiet confidence.

The home is undergoing an extensive upgrade and refurbishment program, with over £150,000 spent in the last year (2016) to add en-suite facilities to many rooms, upgraded laundry, reception area, new wet rooms, improved kitchen facilities, replacement of many windows and upgraded heating system and lighting. They encourage you to come and see ‘the new Hollins Bank’ for yourself.

  • 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.819 for Hollins Bank Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.819

  • 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?'

    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 4.682 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hollins Bank Care 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

My mum spent the final 2 and a half years of her life at Hollins Bank after suffering a stroke in 2014. She enjoyed her time there making friends with staff and residents alike and was well looked after, she loved the entertainment when she could sing along to all the old songs. Thank you all for making Mum's last years bearable for her, I know how much you cared for her.

Our mum was living independently but had a few falls, so we decided a care home would be best Hollins Bank was recommended by a friend. I cannot say enough about the care.

The staff are friendly, gentle and sympathetic to our mum's needs. They work very hard. Senior managers are always around if we have any questions.

I would recommend this home to anyone for their relatives.
