Reviews

8.9 Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.920)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.42 for Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 112 Ratings = 4.42

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit is based on 7 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.500

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

Just a quick review to show appreciation to all the staff looking after my dad. The care for him is excellent but I wanted to offer thanks more for my mother. Mum has struggled whilst Dad was in hospital, being out of the house for 10 hours each day for over 3 months. I live 100 miles away in Wales and was worrying over her more than Dad. The change in her is now remarkable. She is even fed every day1 Many thanks to all at Corinthian House.

The staff are lovely, caring, fun and hardworking. They know the residents and also they recognise the friends and relatives who visit them. This may sound obvious but previous experience with homes my father stayed in, this, unfortunately, was not the case. (Agency staff mainly). The food is good and the dining room is a credit to the staff - who take the time and trouble to set each table beautifully! My stepdads room is clean, tidy and bright. The home smells good. (Not over scented etc). It is clean, bright, fresh and well decorated and maintained.

Corinthian House Nursing & Dementia Unit where my sister resided there from 2013-2017 had nothing but kindness, compassion and loving care. The staff were fantastic and nothing seemed to be any trouble. During her last days, endless cups of coffee, tea, sandwiches and help for all the family. I wish all the staff could be given gold medals. Well done and thank you to every employee there.

I visit my wife in the home, who has been there for nearly 18 months. I have got to know a lot of the staff by name over the time that I have been visiting, also the residents.
It's nice to feel at ease when I visit the home.

We as a family are very satisfied and happy at how the care home looks after our mother. She has been there seven months, and appears to be well settled she likes all the carers, cleaners etc who take the time to go into her room and have a chat. Recently it was her Birthday and the chef made her a smashing cake which other residents shared. Up to now we have no complaints only thanks to everyone.

Mum was really ill and the nurse and deputy took good care of her, staff stayed with her while the ambulance arrived. Mum's back now, I notice staff are monitoring her closely and letting me know how she is. The staff are very reassuring.

My dad has been with Corinthian house for over fourteen months now his general health has improved and he is happy, it was his choice to go to a care home as he knew he could not care for himself I took my dad to visit a few others and this was the one that could cater for his needs.
It is a happy place and especially the entertainment team are always looking for ways to involve the guests in various activities.
The nurses appear to be aware of my dads condition and act very quickly to his infections which have saved him being hospitalised on many occasions they keep me well informed of any change in his condition.
The only thing I would suggest that a designated team member can be available to answer any questions either me or my dad have instead of us talking to a few different people.

Job Title: Care Manager

Description:

Hello my name is Heather McGrath and I am the Registered Care Manager.

I qualified in 1992 working for 9 years in the NHS on a surgical ward. During this time I learnt how to care for people in difficult situations, how to support them through their illness and end of life care.

My aim as the Care Manager is to bring a relaxed friendly homely atmosphere whereby my residents are treated as if they are in their own home and that we, the staff are visitors.
