Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Leeming Garth Care Home 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 37 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Leeming Garth Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.404 for Leeming Garth Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (226 Excellents x 5) + (161 Goods x 4) + (48 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 436 Ratings = 4.404

  • 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 Leeming Garth Care Home is based on 23 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 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 11 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.

9.4 Leeming Garth Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.404) from 37 Reviews

My Mum has been a resident for 18 months and, on the whole, have found her care to be good and she is happy and settled. It would be nice to have more outings for residents but there are activities which are varied, but more would be good.
Staff are warm and friendly and cope well with the demands made.

Clare Sheehan, Careline Advisor at Leeming Garth Care Home responded to this review on 27 Apr 2018:

We provide a minibus for resident outings. Residents are encouraged to partake in days out, weather permitting. Due to the demand of the minibus and number of residents residing at the care home, it is not always possible for individual residents to be able to go on outings on a weekly basis. Activities are varied and this is discussed at residents meetings. Our Wellbeing Co-ordinator takes great pride in ensuring that all residents have the choice to partake in activities chosen or on a one to one basis.

My grandma is very happy and all the staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Leaming Garth Care Home is warm and welcoming with friendly staff who are fun as well as efficient. My mother's respite turned into a permanent stay, but she is happy and settled and is thriving in her surroundings.
There are activities to engage everyone a daily basis, where everyone is encouraged and made to feel included. We are extremely lucky to have found this home.

Myself and my brother and sister are very satisfied with the quality of care, though my mother can be over critical. Her room, the grounds and the communal areas provide ample opportunity to integrate with other residents and the staff. Whether or not this is taken advantage of is down to the attitude of the individual rather than any shortcomings of the establishment.

Leeming Garth is pleasant, well run and a caring establishment. There is a very low turnover of staff which helps with continuity of care. They have good support from local GP's and district nurses. I visit 3 or 4 times a week and it is always calm and comfortable.

I have visited Leeming Garth on a few occasions and recently been invited to their open day to present their new refurbishment. The changes made are fantastic and the home now works like a 5-star hotel than a care home. Residents were happy and staff were smiling and they put on a beautiful buffet for all to enjoy. Staff were attentive and welcoming and the atmosphere was great. My friend is so happy there.

Staff are lovely. Recent upheaval with redecoration etc has unsettled me. Food is lovely although some variety of sandwiches at tea time would be nice. Staffing on a weekend does sometimes lead to long periods where assistance is not available. Staff have all helped me through what has been a very upsetting time since the loss of my son.

Katie Price, Careline Advisor at Leeming Garth Care Home responded to this review on 17 Oct 2017:

Thank you for your review, we appreciate all feedback as it helps us to improve our service where required. At Leeming Garth, we work within a staffing grid which is worked out based on the dependency of our Residents. Allocation of staff is reviewed daily by the management team in the home and deployment of staff on each unit is also reviewed on a day to day basis. At tea time all Residents are offered a choice of a hot option or soup and sandwiches of which there are at least 4 different options to choose from. If the choices offered are not to the liking of our Residents, our kitchen staff will gladly arrange for another alternative to be made.

Leeming Garth has recently had refurbishment work completed in all communal areas to improve the environment for our Residents. All Residents were informed of the refurbishment before commencement and all agreed that this work was needed. We tried to work around the Residents without disruption of their daily routine but sometimes, because of the nature of the work being completed, this was not been possible.

I am happy living at Leeming Garth. The staff are helpful and I like my room. I have been able to bring things in from home to make it my own.

I left my mum at Leeming Garth happy and content that she was in a lovely room. The house is beautiful with wonderful views from all windows. The staff were so courteous, friendly and understanding to mums needs. She enjoyed mixing with other residents and also the food options. She did say she would go there for respite again.

Why I am pleased to be here - because of the state of the roads near my house. I couldn't get a carer on a night. Because I have stayed here before. I was very pleased the Manager said I could stay. The food is very good (I am celiac and MCS - they cater well for my needs). I love the activities and meeting new people. I am looking forward to the Christmas activities.

We were familiar with Leeming Garth because my mother-in-law was already a resident. My grandmother was increasingly unable to cope in her own home. The staff were very helpful when the decision was made to move her to a safer/caring environment. The transitional period was very difficult however all the staff remained positive and supportive. Since that time my grandmother has become much more settled. Although her short term memory is very poor, she understands Leeming is her home. She comments about how nice everyone is and is obviously well cared for.

After eight years of residence I have seen many changes to the staff, management and standard of care. At present standards in care are satisfactory but regular good management and training to keep them improving in the future. Housekeeping standards sometimes fall short of expectations (perhaps more training in this area needs to improve the standard).
Carers do not interact with residents enough and on a personal level.
