Reviews

7.4 Parc Wern Care Home has a Review Score of 7.4 (7.366)

The Review Score of 7.4 (maximum of 10) for Parc Wern Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Parc Wern Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 12 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.866 for Parc Wern Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (125 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 142 Ratings = 4.866

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Parc Wern Care Home is based on 12 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 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.

We found it very difficult to take my father out of our home county and to a home 76 miles away from us (due to no EMI nursing home in Ceredigion) this happened in January 2016.
But by now we feel grateful, thankful and with peace of mind having found such a truly caring, homely, actually amazing place in Parc Wern.
The manager and all staff never cease to amaze us with their positivity and love. Thank you all!!!

I have always found the above care home friendly and welcoming. I have visited at various times of the day and the care my mother receives is dignified. I am informed if she is unwell or requires anything.
The staff are efficient, caring and speak to the residents with patience and kindness. My mother is given choice even though she is unable to voice her decisions. We chose this care home originally as the manager understood our anxiety and devastation of having to place our mother in a home. She made our decision so much more bearable by her comforting words and reassurance.
There are a variety of activities on a regular basis. The residents are encouraged to take part when appropriate. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff involved in the care of my mother.

Mother in law became ill and stopped enjoying food and dad. The staff were excellent in their care and environment which has hopefully paid off. The communication was good and we can only praise the manager and staff.

The care my sister gets I can't complain everyone is very polite and caring. The only thing is the laundry, as some clothes are not my sisters and socks go missing. The home is very pleasant. There are things going on for the people here, but unfortunately my sister can't join in. The parking area could be a bit better.

I have found the management and staff to be approachable, caring, efficient and friendly since my brother was admitted to Parc Wern. The rooms are spacious and clean. Entertainment in the form of concerts, fetes days out when the weather permits. Staff show interest in the residents past as well as the present which is nice to see. I am always impressed by the homely friendly atmosphere that prevails. Their visitors are welcomed unannounced and at anytime and all are free to walk around unaccompanied. All is open and above board and the residents are always clean and well cared for and happy as possible. As regular visitor I am impressed and grateful.

My brother has been in this home since September 2014 and his care has been excellent. All the residents are always clean and tidy and the staff all treat them with respect and dignity. They take time to try and keep residents minds active, with my brother they take him through his memory book asking him whose who which starts off conversations as to his past, thereby keeping his memories going. You can call at any time and are made to feel welcome.

Extremely clean, vast improvement in my brother-in-law as he gets care and attention here. Very friendly staff always talks to us and my brother-in-law. He's always kept clean and tidy, hair, nails and his clothes are always clean and tidy. My husband and myself are frequent visitors and we notice that the staff are always polite to the residents. Will recommend this home to everybody.
