  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Threshfield Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 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 4.669 for Barchester Threshfield Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (187 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 260 Ratings = 4.669

  • 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 4.82 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Threshfield Court Care Home is based on 10 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.820

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

My Dad has been in Threshfield Court for 6 weeks.
In that time, the care by the staff, the food, the trips out up The Dales in the minibus to see the lambs and countryside in full Spring bloom and the activities provided have all been exceptional.
The room was a little disappointing (a little tired) but the rooms are in the process of being updated.
We have moved to a slightly better room.
The compassion, empathy, patience and sense of humour by staff is amazing.

My 93-year-old mother spent several months at Barchester Threshfield Court Care Home before she died. She was suffering from dementia and we felt lucky to have a friendly, well-run care home specialist in dementia on our doorstep. We felt welcome to call in at any time and the busy staff always found time to talk to us and offer us a cup of tea. We are kept informed of every change in my mother's condition and medication. We are grateful to all the staff for their care and kindness to my mother.

Lovely to see my mum looking very smart and had just had her hair done. Although she can no longer speak, we communicate in other ways, the Carers always make her smile and I am so reassured by the quality of care. Really very happy with everything. Thank you.

Cannot fault this nursing home. It is clean and has a warm homely feel. Meals are good with a good variety. Considers residents likes and dislikes. All the staff are kind and considerate of each residents needs and treats them with dignity.

My mother went in for 8 days of respite care so we could have our first holiday in 3 years. She is not a very sociable person having lived alone for many years, however, she has not stopped talking about her stay since she came home. She will definitely go back again, loved all the staff and I think she talked more than she has in years. It is lovely to think we can go away again with no worries, knowing she is so well looked after.

I visited my sister with my niece on 17th August. Threshfield Court Care Home is a delightful place. It is light and airy, always spotlessly clean and tidy and beautifully decorated. A particularly delightful feature is that unlike many care homes, lots of little lounges have been retained from the original Wilson Arms from which Threshfield originated. The whole is enhanced by a secluded garden which is an oasis of peace for the residents.

Colourful hanging baskets hanging outside the picture of welcome to all visitors.
Threshfield has a marvellous and devoted team working as one, to complete the comfort of all the residents. Their manner on the telephone is always polite and helpful and the whole effect is a credit to each and everyone.

Whilst visiting our friend for the first time, we were pleased to see what a lovely building it was, also the rooms were lovely and spacious, very clean and well cared for, the staff we encountered were all very helpful and so pleasant, our friend said how nicely they all treated her, that the rooms were cleaned every day, fresh towels etc and she had no complaints. We were very impressed with the place.

My mother was a resident for the last eight months of her life. She had been discharged from hospital in poor health and needing nursing care - no one expected her to live very long. With the professional, loving care given in Threshfield Court she got a new lease of life and her time there was the best it could possibly have been. The staff are without exception absolutely fantastic - they treat residents with care and dignity but also love, humour and tenderness. My mother enjoyed life and was contented despite the physical challenges she faced and her dementia. The staff are brilliant at communicating with people living with dementia. My mother had a superb carer who was allocated to be her particular point of contact and he was wonderful and she loved him. The way that the home is organised ensures that there is continuity of care for residents and it was very reassuring to speak to staff who all recognised who we were and passed on accurate information about our mother.

My mother, who had lived at Threshfield Court for almost four years, recently died and had steadily declined over the last few months.
We could not thank the nursing home staff enough for all the help, sympathy and understanding they have given, especially when my mother passed away and we believe they also feel the loss personally and that she will be missed at the home.

I had a sunny ground floor room looking out on a pond in the garden with woodland beyond. Meals were good, vegetarian but monotonous and service was slow. I was helped to the dining room and sat at a table for 4.

Superb friendly staff even if they are overworked due to demanding patients. Cleanliness immaculate and food is usually good though obviously has to cater for people with severe physical and mental disabilities.

My husband's care has been excellent. The staff that we have met, as a family, have been friendly, helpful and very caring towards my husband and all the residents. We are not at the home all the time of course, but a member of the family goes every day and is welcomed every time.

Four months after my father became a resident at Threshfield Court my mother who was in a difficult nursing home died and the staff looking after my father were excellent in the way they dealt with him through it all even escorting him to the funeral leaving us to deal with things on the day. Much appreciated. Cannot fault any of the care provided up to the present.

Mum has been here for 5 months. It has taken this time to feel settled but now it feels a comfortable and safe place for her to live. The daily routine is reassuring and the care and concern of all the staff members is really first rate.

The place is kept clean, laundry is done swiftly, decoration and furnishings are kept smart with some nice touches - flowers at reception and on tables all show care to detail. The meals are all excellent. The patience and diligence of the staff is to be commended.

My father has lived at Threshfield Court for well over two years now following a serious stroke. This was not an easy decision to make as I live in Derby and had to decide whether he should be in a nursing home close to his former home in Embsay, or whether he should be closer to my home, making visiting easier. In the event, the decision to move him into Threshfield Court has proved to be the right one.
The home is clean and nicely decorated, with a relaxed atmosphere, and the staff do an amazing job in caring for the residents. I have had several meals at Threshfield Court and have found the food to be nicely prepared and tasty. All in all, I have been able to rest easy that my father is getting the best care possible. My only possible concern relates to the lack of engagement my father has with any organised activities, and whether the staff could do more to address this. However, I do accept this is difficult if my father refuses to get involved.

My step-father entered the home from hospital. He suffers from dementia and exhibits aggressive and disruptive behaviour. The staff have been very patient but firm with him, ensuring that he is kept clean, shaved and well dressed. Days are spent in the lounge where staff can keep an eye on him. One of my step-father's few remaining pleasures is eating, and he says that the food is very good and plentiful. I visit every alternate day and have yet to see anything that causes me concern.

My husband initially went for two weeks respite care, but due to circumstances stayed at Threshfield Court for two and a half months.

Everywhere was clean and bright and his room was nicely decorated. The staff were very caring, helpful and cheerful and my husband enjoyed chatting to them and sharing a joke. They helped him at mealtimes ensuring that he was able to eat easily. The food was particularly good and the chef was happy to provide dishes suited to my husband's taste. The nursing team was quick to deal with any problems related to my husband's wellbeing and kept me informed about his condition.

I noted that residents in the home were treated kindly and with respect by the staff and that there was a good range of activities on offer for those who were able to participate.

My husband enjoyed his stay and would be happy to return there and I would have no qualms about recommending Threshfield Court to others.
