Reviews

9.1 Valley Park has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.075)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Valley Park 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Valley Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.549 for Valley Park is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.549

  • 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 4.526 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Valley Park 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

    2. Target of 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.526

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

My nan was only here for a short time she passed away here on 9th June 2017. I had built up a great rapport with a few of the carers that work here. Keep doing what you're doing guys. Carers were great and especially on the evening of my nans passing they were great with me, nan and the family. They saw me as a regular visitor to my nan and between me and the carers we did as much as we could to try and get nan well again. I'm glad I picked this care home so close to home, nice clean place and carers that will talk, chat and help. I haven't got anything negative to say about the carers or the home.

My uncle entered your home 9 months ago. We have seen him change from a depressed and tearful man to a very happy and settled man. This is all thanks to your caring staff. We visit weekly and are always greeted cheerfully. We are kept informed all the time about him. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for your staff. We would recommend this home to anyone who is worried about a relative and the care that they would receive. Many thanks to all of you.

Mum has been a resident of Valley Park for approximately 20 months and she loves what she calls her home. Mum has a fantastic rapport with everyone that works at Valley Park and nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff.
Valley Park has a new manager and she interacts with staff, residents and family members/friends, on a daily basis and for me, this is a quality that is needed in caring.
Admin is also always on hand to help with any needs or any questions that need answering.
The home is spotless and always has a welcome feel.
All of the times that I have walked into the building a member of staff has always been there to greet me and might I add so many times when activities have been happening I also love to go and join in.
Mum would never wish to go anywhere else as she is settled at Valley Park where residents and staff are now her family too.
We would be lost without care homes such as Valley Park and the extra mile that everyone gives at the care home.
Thank you.

My mam has been in Valley Park for a few months now. Before she wasn't talking or feeding herself but now due to the work of the brilliant staff there, she is now. All the staff are good at their job and know what they doing. 10/10 brilliant.

I personally think that the staff do a very good job with coping with difficult residents and caring for them in general. From the food I've seen, I think that the caterers do a very good job catering for the residents. One last thing that I think highly about it the state and the cleanliness of the rooms is very good. It is very hygienic and they all have a big personal space to be able to rest or a very good wide space to talk and communicate with other residents.

Lovely friendly home, not the best d├ęcor, but the staff are lovely and the manager interacts with the staff and residents. The home feels like a big family, and the administration personnel are lovely. They have trips out and bingo, singers etc, and special birthday treats when it's a special birthday. Cleaning staff really nice, just a lovely friendly home.
