The Laurels and Limes Care Home is a beautiful home situated in 3 acres of parkland close to the Sheffield suburb of Broomhill. Separated into two homes, one boasting the ambiance of old world charm and the other a purpose built, yet sophisticated home.

Carers offer residents and their families the support they need during what many find some of the most trying times of their lives. Families & advocates are truly grateful for the personal support they receive, when faced with one of life's very difficult decisions and pride themselves on continuing that support to residents and their families from the moment they contact throughout the whole of their stay and beyond.

The approach to care is simple - look after the person and not the ailment/condition alone - professionals want to get to know their residents and their families, thus enabling them to look after the whole person and not just to concentrate on the task in hand. Carers get to know their clients, who they are, who they were and how they have come to be at the home.

Carers get to know families too and like to understand the dynamics within the family setting and how best they can support these as they build a relationship of trust. Staff understand that choosing a care home is not just about excellent amenities, but about a true and real understanding of relationships being nurtured, trust being built and a life being lived.

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for The Laurels and The Limes Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Laurels and The Limes Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.317 for The Laurels and The Limes Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.317

  • 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 3.977 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Laurels and The Limes Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 17.6 positive Reviews (88 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 17.6 Target = 0.227

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

Our family is very happy with The Laurels and The Limes Care Home. The staff are great with all the residents, some of whom are very challenging. They make great efforts with them in regards to entertainment and general care. The home is warm and there is a lovely atmosphere.

Since my wife came to reside at The Limes in June 2016, the home has gone through various stages of development. Changes of manager have had an unsettling effect at times but this situation has now been resolved. The staff are very good generally and create a more comfortable environment.

My mother has been a resident at The Laurels and The Limes Care Home for the past two years suffering from dementia. During this time my brother and I have been highly delighted with her care. Following a period of upheaval as a result of two managers leaving in close succession. The care staff have behaved in a most caring and compassionate way, especially when dealing with challenging behaviour. They have bee without fail cheerful and most helpful including the cleaning staff. Mum has settled in well during this time, is eating well and engages well with all members of the care team. I would have no hesitation in recommending. The Laurels care home to anyone seeking to find residential care for a loved one suffering with dementia.
