The Grange, Selby, North Yorkshire

The Grange Care Home is a large Victorian property that has been skilfully converted into a care residence for older people. The home stands in its own grounds just a few hundred yards from the centre of the historic market town of Selby.

The house has enjoyed a varied history since becoming a care home in the 1960s and was largely destroyed by a fire around the turn of the century. Many of the house’s original features, including the ceilings, ornate covings, and stained glass windows in the main house have all been retained along with the staircase and large landing which is popular with those seeking quiet relaxation.

Having undergone extensive refurbishment and redecoration, the home has 28 bedrooms, some with en-suite facilities, dedicated to caring for residents with dementia.

The Grange has a dedicated activities organiser and we enjoy regular visits to the home by local school children and choristers from the Cathedral.

Reviews

9.8 The Grange has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.794)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Grange is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Grange in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.794 for The Grange is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.794

  • 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 The Grange is based on 11 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 8.6 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.

I have been visiting my friend at The Grange for around five years and I must say that her care has been excellent in all respects, for all that time.
She has been well looked after with dignity, shown a lot of love by all.
In all I think her life has been extended by the care she has been given. Her room is comfortable and clean and she has been and still is very happy.
Thank you all for looking after her.
