Reviews

9.8 Barchester Harton Grange Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.807)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Harton Grange Care Home 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 54 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Harton Grange Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 53 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 4.807 for Barchester Harton Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (525 Excellents x 5) + (119 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 647 Ratings = 4.807

  • 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 Barchester Harton Grange Care Home is based on 53 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). 53 Reviews ÷ 12.2 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.

My dad has been at Harton Grange Care Home for over 7 years and is happy there. The staff are great with him and always talk to him. Senior staff are more than happy to address any concerns or queries about him and the home will always ring me if any issues arise. My mam visits daily and she is treated with respect and care. I would recommend this home to any family who is looking for a safe and nurturing environment for their loved ones.

My mother in law suffers from dementia. Since arriving at Harton Grange, she is well looked after and cared for with dignity. The staff are wonderful and often, even when busy, make time for residents, when they require more one to one care.
The staff always have a smile on their faces when dealing with often difficult residents. The activities coordinator is also wonderful at helping them to remain active.

My mother has been in Harton Grange since December 2014. She was quickly welcomed and made to feel at home by all the staff.
Staff are efficient, friendly and helpful at all times. They respond quickly to any emergency situations (such as medical problems) and keep the family informed.
The manager is particularly approachable and makes residents and visitors feel like part of an extended family.
It makes it easier in the knowledge that my mother feels 'at home' and is being very well cared for.

It would not be fair to mention names as the entire staff are first class. We looked at a few homes but Harton Grange Care Home came highly recommended and on viewing it, it has that homely feel about it.
The staff are most caring and treat everyone with kindness and dignity. The building itself is well maintained and clean. The food, facilities, and activities are very good. My mother is very happy here and calls it home which just about sums it up.

Thank you for your kind words.

My mother lived in Harton Grange for over eight years and made good friends with residents and staff alike. I was made to feel very welcome during my daily visits, which I could make at any time. If I couldn’t make it in, I would ring up and the staff would give me an update. Nothing was too much trouble and I could express concerns, which would be dealt with immediately, at any time. My mam had dementia/mobility issues and the staff tried their best to make her comfortable and keep her engaged. When I was in my mam’s room it felt like I was home with her as she had her pictures and ornaments around, together with her favourite music playing whilst we looked through photographs and chatted. After each visit, I felt happy mam was being well cared for and was safe. Harton Grange has a friendly, relaxed feel but I appreciate that all the staff work very hard to achieve this.

Not only is he happy and very settled, my wife is also a lot happier as he was depressed in his previous care home. My wife always looks forward to seeing her father as staff always keep her up to date with his weekly outings and activities. The staff and management are a credit to the company.

My father has been a resident here for a couple of months (previously unhappy and getting depressed in his previous care home). He has settled straight away. His care needs have been listened to and met by both staff and management. He is always out and about on trips and participating in activities. He is happy, talkative and is really settled. There are always snacks available - fresh fruit and biscuits. The staff are so friendly, they keep me fully informed and my dad has found his 'forever home'. A great team of people - a credit to your company.

Thank you for your review.

Very impressed with the level of care enjoyed by my mother in law. The staff always friendly and approachable, respond to any queries imminently or find a member of staff who does know the answer.
The range of activities outside the home and inside, plus they are always looking for new things to engage the residents, currently having hens on site for the residents to interact with, in the past they have invited miniature ponies in, proving popular with one resident recounting his experience looking after a pit pony, just one example of getting residents talking and sharing experiences.
Overall trying and succeeding to provide a homely atmosphere, not a home institution experience.

Thank you for your kind words.

I have nothing but praise for this care home which my aunt has now been in for several years. The manager and all her team provide a very high level of care to the residents and are constantly trying to improve the lives of the residents. There is a wide range of activities and events organised including music, outings, film shows and crafts for residents wishing to join in, and families are welcomed to visit at any time.

My Mam has dementia and I am so pleased that she is at Harton Grange - having looked at a number of others in the town. Harton Grange stands head and shoulders above the others. The staff really care and are very attentive to my mother's needs, they keep us informed of any issues and there is a lovely calm atmosphere around the place. I would recommend Harton Grange unreservedly.

My Mother-in-Law has been a resident since December 2015. She has always been looked after and is also 'mostly' happy. For these reasons, our whole family is very grateful to all the staff for their dedication to doing what must be a very taxing job. Thank you.

The pre-residency visit and tour found to be very open, not pre-arranged and given freely.
Facilities and care are all that we could have hoped for and it is a comfort that mother is safe as she was previously struggling on her own at home.
Mother's comments are always complimentary and she is very happy.
Her word = 'Excellent'.

My mum, who is in her nineties and suffering dementia, came to live at Harton Grange in 2012. At first distraught at losing her old lifestyle, she has become more and more comfortable and even happy with life at Harton Grange. Living overseas, my visits are not as frequent as I would like them to be but I’m comfortable that she is in good hands. On my last visit (April 2017) my mum seemed happier than I’ve seen her in years and is well on track to make it to 100! The staff are wonderful – always friendly and accommodating in true Geordie style. They make best efforts to keep the residents involved and entertained. The food is good and I’m welcome to join in at mealtimes. I can visit at any (reasonable) time and even get to play with the model railway in the lounge.

The home is a lovely place with pleasant staff. My sister-in-law has had wonderful care, also good medical care and she is beginning to settle in as she has only been here since February. We are very pleased that she was able to go to Horton Grange.

I have been coming to Harton Grange for 3yrs to see my auntie. I have been around a lot of homes and can honestly say in my opinion, is a very good home, staff are friendly and caring. Nothing is too much trouble for them, they treat residents with respect.
We can speak to management and they are always helpful and always offer refreshments to us when we go into Harton Grange.
I can go home at night and relax knowing my auntie is well looked after.

I would like to put pen to paper and praise the staff of Harton Grange for the care my mother received. It was at first a great step to look for the extra care mother needed at her time of life but the staff at Harton Grange have taken all those worries away by their professional and very caring help they give to residents and family and friends. Many thanks to all.

My auntie has been in Harton Grange since 2014 and she could not have been looked after by anyone else. It's a joy to come into Harton Grange, all the staff are very helpful and caring, they are a credit to Barchester. I have always been informed of any changes in my aunties condition and of any medication changes.

Mam has been at Harton Grange for 9 years. If it wasn't for their excellent care she would not be here today. Mam always says she enjoys the meals and that there is plenty. The home is always clean and the staff busy.
We are always informed of any medical appointments or medication for Mam and if there are events happening at the home.
There are activities and trips out, crafts and entertainment for anyone who wants to join in.

Myself and family looked for a care home for our dear mother who at the time was 87, November 2015, after visiting a good few care homes in the area we came upon Harton Grange Care Home and instantly felt at home by the staff. Mum was made very welcome by all she has been here just over a year now and all the staff bend over backwards to look after her. She has attended all the parties and get-togethers run by the staff sometimes in their own time, we couldn't have found anywhere better, it's actually home from home x

Staff at the home are always friendly and welcoming. I always feel my mam is getting the care and support she needs. She is well looked after by carers who have a great understanding of her condition. I feel mam is safe at all times which makes my life easier knowing she is being cared for by people who care. My only niggle would be sometimes items of her clothing have gone missing, even when labelled but this is understandable.

Mam was given a lovely room. The staff are lovely. Food is lovely, carers do give Mam a lot of attention when she's feeling anxious when I can't be here. When she has her meals, myself and my brother are always offered a meal too. Staff are always coming round with coffee and biscuits with a lovely friendly caring manner.

My mother has dementia, after working in an office until the age of 73. The staff at Harton Grange treat her with dignity and she enjoys a personal rapport with them and in spite of dementia, her own personality is encouraged. The musical entertainments frequently held are enjoyable to my mother and other residents. I chose this home in part because it was dog-friendly. Her dog was always welcomed and she particularly liked the chef at garden party buffet events.

My mother was so against going into a home in July 2015 so had already decided she would not like this move at all. I eventually realised she was now needing the 24 hour care that myself and my eldest son could not give her. We realised that she was becoming isolated, lonely and now required the company that only her own age group could give her. She was becoming anxious which was leading to aggression towards us whenever we left her alone for any length of time. I therefore realised she needed the stability of a good caring environment to help her settle down and she could then trust a good care team to help and support her. I felt this would comfort her, allowing her to have the quality of life she now deserves in her twilight years.

Within days of her moving into Harton Grange she became a different person from the last few years when we thought we had lost her and did not known who she was. We were given a fabulous welcome from the manager and her team who opened their arms out to my mother and us as her family. My mother was loved by everyone and she glowed with the attention she was given, she was encouraged to participate in the many activities the home provided for their residents. Beautiful surroundings, fantastic garden, many things to do daily including outings on their own transport. My mother absolutely loves her room, the staff, her new-found friends and I now know she is happy when she sometimes has not got time for me when I visit as she is now too busy to talk to me and dismisses me. Haha
Thank you Harton Grange I honestly do not think we could have found a home anywhere as good as this one! You are all doing a fantastic job when your residents settle in to their surrounding so quickly and extremely happy! What more could I ask for my mother?
