Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Aberford Hall Care Home 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 41 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Aberford Hall Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.605 for Aberford Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (331 Excellents x 5) + (125 Goods x 4) + (21 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) + (3 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 484 Ratings = 4.605

  • 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 Aberford Hall Care Home is based on 18 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 8.4 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.

9.6 Aberford Hall Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.605) from 41 Reviews

Unfortunately Mum was only a resident at Aberford Hall for a short time before she passed away. We found all the staff to be friendly, caring and welcoming and were very quickly made to feel part of the family. Mum couldn't have had better care in her final days.

Mother-in-law was cared for during 6 months period of palliation following diagnosis with a brain tumour. The staff were polite, supportive and attentive. They supported the three brothers with effective end of life care planning.

She really enjoyed the activities and the food and they provided a really lovely last Christmas. She was confused and a bit difficult at times and they showed understanding and empathy.

Life in a care home can be a strange business in my opinion, especially if the person concerned is somewhat incapacitated and not always feeling on top form. After a stroke, my mother's prospects did not look good, but her determination kept her going and we are pleased that we found Aberford Hall Care Home to meet her needs. She had a comfortable, homely, room with a relaxing view of the garden. When she was well enough, she was taken to the lounge and we often joined her for a cup of tea, or to see an entertainer, or take part in floor dominoes and 'keep fit'. On her 'off days', her room was a calm place, and with the door open, there was comforting busyness going on in the building.
We always found Aberford Hall Care Home to be a welcoming, calm, safe place, with friendly staff working tirelessly to look after the people living there.
Thank you to everyone at Aberford Hall Care Home.

Aberford Hall is always clean and tidy.
The staff are friendly and always willing to help when I have a request or a problem to be dealt with.
My aunt requires the support of a qualified nurse and I have never needed to question if she is well looked after.
She has dementia and is often unaware of what is going on around her but appears happy and contented.

My Dad has been cared for over three and a half years in this care home. The service provided by the nurses and carers is the best I know. My Dad is cared for 24/7 and the staff is his 2nd family. If there are any problems, the Management deal with it immediately and efficiently. I have nothing bad to say about Aberford Hall and I will recommend it to anyone.

Throughout her time at Aberford Hall my mother was cared for with great affection, respect and a sense of humour by all the staff. Having visited regularly for about 20 months, I have always been impressed by the warm welcome I received and the friendliness and attention given to residents.

During her final illness, the carers were kind and attentive to my mother and very supportive to me and my family.

A very good welcome to my arthritic wife who was in for respite. I joined her following my surgery. Nothing was too much trouble to help us be as comfortable as possible. The staff and management frequently popped in for a chat which was very beneficial for my wife after being housebound and lonely for a long time. Having suffered arthritis for 50 years and gradually becoming more disabled it has been difficult to make friends. After all the bad press about care homes, we were very relieved to be so well treated and left the home with a very good feeling

The care and love my mum has received from the amazing staff here has been extraordinary.
From the time my mum arrived until the moment four years later she died she was surrounded by caring, thoughtful and loving people, most of whom had worked there a long time and were constant in her life.
I cannot thank them enough.

As a relative, you were professional, efficient and had high standards of care. My uncle was a gentleman and all staff treated him with the utmost dignity at all times even when his illness affected the clarity of his thinking. I got to know all key staff personally over the six weeks he was with you and recognised deep personal commitment to end of life care. Thank you for making his final days comfortable and respectful.

Aberford Hall is a homely care home. My Mother in Law has been a resident here for 5 1/2 years. Her care is very good. Staff are mostly friendly, although very pushed at times to do their jobs properly. There are plenty of activities to join in with if residents wish to do so. Unfortunately, my Mother in Law is unable to join in as she has severe dementia but the staff do a great job of getting her up and dressed most days to sit in the lounge where these activities take place. I feel staff do their best and my Mother in Law is kept very comfortable.

He just stops in his room all the time and will not partake in any activities.

My dear wife was cared for by the dedicated and thoroughly professional staff of Aberford Hall after her release from hospital where she had been a patient for 2weeks suffering a urinary infection. The care at Aberford Hall was superb, dedicated and kind. Members of the family on visits were welcomed and helped and able to be with her until the end when she died with no fear or pain.

On behalf of the members of my family, I would like to commend the staff team at Aberford Hall Nursing Home.

My Mother only spent eight nights in Aberford Hall because her health was so very poor and she died soon after being admitted. That made her experiences of the last days at the home critical. Due to its peaceful environment and the loving care shown to her by everyone in the team. She was relaxed and calm the whole time. This led to a correspondingly peaceful, even beautiful death and she passed away without fear or anxiety.

It rapidly became apparent that the home's managers allowed and facilitated any requests we had and several examples of the unit's ethos I would like to summarise:

We came and went on a daily basis and there was at no time any feelings of awkwardness or perception experienced by us that we were getting in the way of the running of the home. We were encouraged to go about preparing for the end of our Mother's life in our own personal way.

The staff were well organised but also responded instantly and graciously to any care needs my mother had. They would always stop what they were doing and meet any needs we had immediately. On many occasions, unbeknown to the nurses and support carers, we witnessed kindness and inadvertently overheard conversations that were happening close to where we were. On every occasion, staff were calm, dignified and compassionate. There was a mixture of ages in the team with very little staff turnover. Youthful energy and hope was augmentated by wisdom and experience. Many of the professionals had been at Aberford Hall for a long time and clearly loved their jobs.

On the night before my Mother died, I and my sister asked if we could stay over. The staff on duty kindly made an adjacent room available and helped us make up a bed. We were able to take it in turns to be with our mother, hold her hand and stroke her hair through the long hours of that last night. Staff regularly brought us meals, snacks and cups of tea. We felt very welcomed and supported.

The senior members of the team at Aberford Hall explained everything in a way that helped us understand processes which we had not experienced before. They also always made plain their thinking in terms of the type and amount of medication they were giving, for example. Communication at all times was good. The team was both efficient and very humane.

Perhaps the most important moment for us came when one member of staff helped me with a dilemma. Should we allowed my seven-year-old granddaughter (mum's great granddaughter) to visit with her mum? The choice became obvious following that conversation and the young child throught hard about whether she would like to see my mother one last time. She did decide to visit less than thirty-eight hours before the death. For those moments during the visit, my mother suddenly became astonishingly animated, uttering words which comforted us and spend time stroking her great grandaughter's hair. This opportunity provided my father and all the others present a beautiful moment which we will cherish forever.

We cannot fault in any way a single aspect of the set up at Aberford Hall as a reflection of the highly compassionate approach of the team have decided to recognise this materially. My father will invite those attending my Mother's funeral to make donations to Aberford Hall which we will pass on with our own, for the benefit of those dedicated staff who provided impeccable care and to make a small contribution to the fabric of the premises. Without a thought, we would all recommend that others requiring similar care for their loved ones place their trust in the professionals working at Aberford Hall.

My mother passed away at Aberford Hall Care Home on the 15th February 2017. She was a very independent and determined person with a strong personality. The care my mother received was excellent. She was particular about her food and they accommodated her requirements, she was treated with care and dignity right up to her final moments. Nothing was too much trouble even on occasions when they seemed short of staff. If I was to say anything negative, the home could do with a coat of paint and new flooring in some of the rooms, but in the end, it's care that counts.

HC-One, Careline Team at Aberford Hall Care Home responded to this review on 22 Mar 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to complete the review.
We strive to continually improve our services and welcome feedback.

After looking around several care homes in Leeds for my father, we decided Aberford Hall would be the right place for my father. After days of being in Aberford Hall, my father complained that the staff were very rough with him. When I confronted the management team I was told they had lots of agency staff, but things would settle once they had permanent staff. I would not recommend this care home. The staff and management team have no idea how to care for anyone. Aberford Hall was a shocking and terrible place for anyone to be in, let alone the sick and vulnerable.

HC-One, Careline Team at Aberford Hall Care Home responded to this review on 02 Feb 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review card for Aberford Hall.
I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the service that was provided by the home after taking time to find a suitable home for your father.
We strive to achieve the kindest possible care to all of our Residents, we value all feedback received and use this constructively to move our service forward.
The home manager has an open door policy and holds monthly relative’s meetings and encourages feedback from Residents and their relatives to ensure any issues or concerns are dealt with promptly.

My auntie sadly passed away this week aged 100 after being at the home for about 2 years. I cannot put into words how much we appreciate the way in which my auntie was looked after during the 2 years and at the end of her life. The staff are certainly not paid enough to do such an important job which makes such a difference to the most vulnerable in our society. We will never forget the kindness she was shown.

My aunt was a resident at Aberford Hall Care Home for two years. During that time, the standard of care was excellent. She was treated with love, care and dignity throughout. We as a family visited regularly at all times of the day and night. We also were treated by all of the staff with love and care. Aberford Hall Care Home may not have the opulence of 5* facilities, but it does offer 5* care and attention to its residents. End of life care was exemplary.

Our mum went there from hospital, we went to look around without an appointment and were welcomed in straight away. The home was very clean and well kept. The staff very welcoming. Mum spent the last five weeks of her life there. The staff encouraged her to join in, bent over backwards to make meals she could eat by pureeing them and doing small recognizable portions. All the staff were very attentive, always popping into the room whenever passing to check on her. Most importantly they made her feel welcome and special. We were very happy with everything.

I feel that my sister is getting all the attention she needs. When she goes to any activities she fully enjoys them and gets involved as much as possible, this helps with her movement and I am so very pleased about this. The trips outside the home have been great for her and she has enjoyed these too to the full. I am so very pleased we have chosen Aberford Hall and I've told others about it.

From the start the person in question was treated with care and dignity. The building inside was fresh and clean no odours or smells. The staff have been so helpful and kind and we could talk to them any time within reason, not disturbing them as they work their duties. The staff were so polite and friendly asking if we needed a drink for my friend. For the short time my friend was in Aberford Hall it made the difference. As a family we are grateful for the way she was treated and were not judged by anyone. Thank you this does ease pain for the loss of my friend.

My father was moved into Aberford Hall directly from hospital. The transition was as smooth as it could have been and the staff and management were helpful and reassuring from the start. Dad has settled in quickly and full thanks to the efforts of the staff. He is both cared for and stimulated. Aberford Hall has regular social events for the patients. The premises and room are clean and tidy and the food and drink is both regular and of a high standard. The benefits to dad from being in Aberford Hall are clear to see.

When my mum reached the stage where we had to accept that mum could no longer manage her own house, we looked at several care homes for her. Some we could not have contemplated letting her move into. On an initial visit to Aberford Hall appeared to be by far the best available over the next two and a half years until mum passed away, our judgement proved to be totally correct. Mum was very happy and made new friends. All levels of cleanliness, staff attitudes, activities for mental stimulation for residents and support by staff for both mum and ourselves was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Aberford Hall to anyone who requires this type of facility for a relative.

I am very pleased with the care and attention my mum receives, she is very happy there,
the only thing that my husband and I would like to see is a sun-room or conservatory to the back of the building adjoining the sitting room, where family and friends can sit together when visiting, when more than two visit it is too cramped in the bedrooms, and sitting in the lounge we don't get any privacy.

HC-One, Careline Team at Aberford Hall Care Home responded to this review on 13 Jan 2016:

We are delighted that you are very pleased with the care your mum is receiving. We have been discussing with our estates department the possibility of putting a conservatory onto the sitting room and hopefully it will be in the refurbishment plans for the future.

The home is very good. The staff treat my mother very well, the food etc is always very good. The major problem is there is a lack of space and access to the outside world without going out ie. a sun room to the garden where when visiting it would be possible to sit in some privacy and space with relatives. Also for the residents to enjoy the outside world in summer without sitting in the breeze.

HC-One, Careline Team at Aberford Hall Care Home responded to this review on 13 May 2016:

Thank you for your feedback, we are very pleased to note your positive comments about the care your mum receives at Aberford Hall and your description of the home as “very good”.
We always welcome suggestions for improvements we could make and understand that a sun room or conservatory would enhance your comfort when visiting your mum as well as providing a space where residents could enjoy the garden. HC One have an ongoing programme of refurbishment across all of their care homes and we are continually looking at ways that the service we provide can be improved. As part of this process, consideration will be given to your suggestion.

From the moment we arrived at Aberford Hall, we just knew it was the right place for Dad. So much so, it was the only place we viewed.
It had a real feeling of belonging, right from the start and staff soon felt like extended family members.
The place was warm, welcoming, clean & fresh and the residents looked happy.
The rooms are adequate and kept clean. They have their own laundry, so clothes are washed and returned quickly.
The meals are exceptional. We know because at times we also ate them (all freshly prepared) and very much appreciated, Thank you.

The entertainments lady is always busy organizing sing-a-longs; bingo etc and they have regular themed events throughout the seasons.
Dad was only there for a short while but the care he received in that time was above and beyond, all the staff were wonderful, not only did they take great care of Dad but they also cared for us as well. Thank you so much.

We would not need to think twice about recommending this HOME from HOME.
