9.6 Greenhill Manor Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.637)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Greenhill Manor 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Greenhill Manor Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.762 for Greenhill Manor Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (209 Excellents x 5) + (63 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 273 Ratings = 4.762

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 4.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Greenhill Manor Care Home is based on 21 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 24 positive Reviews (120 registered beds ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.875

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

The care and professionalism of the staff was second to none. They cared for my mother with care, patience and dignity. She was kept clean, tidy as was her room at all times. The staff were always helpful towards our family if questions needed to be asked and was informed immediately of any change of circumstance. I would highly recommend this care home to everyone who is looking for care for a loved one.

After a heartbreaking few months of caring for my mother at home, we decided my mother needed 24-hour care. The first day at Greenhill Manor Care Home was very difficult but within 2 days the change was unbelievable. The staff are amazing and my mother has taken a shine to them all. Knowing that she is safe and cared for has given the family such great piece of mind.

I have lived at Greenhill Manor Care Home for 3 years and I gradually found out how good it is here and what facilities are available. I am accompanied out shopping when I need to and have just been on a day trip to Bristol Zoo. I am a keen knitter and regularly go to the knitting club. There is also a gardening club. The care here is of a high standard and I'm treated with the utmost dignity and respect at all times.

I find Greenhill Manor Care Home an excellent care home. All facilities and staff are of a very high standard. My father was a resident and passed away there in 2010 suffering Alzheimer's and now my mother has vascular dementia and has been a resident since September 2014. I have never felt any reasons to complain or have concerns. Any problems encountered are dealt with the utmost discretion and respect. Care is given with dignity and respect and each resident is treated individually, allowing them their own preferences when possible.

My mother has been residing here for a year. We are very pleased with the care and the overall care home. The staff are very friendly, helpful, polite and caring and there are obvious signs that they love what they do and treat residents as if they were their own family. The food is very good- a vast variety of different dishes and sometimes I eat with my mother at the care home and the food is very good. The cleanliness is excellent, my mother gets showered every morning and clean clothes, her hair washed and blow dried by hairdresser every week and a manicure. Entertainment is very good, normally a singer on a Friday.

I visited during the summer fete and was surprised by the high quality of the services provided. From the time you enter Greenhill Manor Care Home and see the beautifully decorated cafe and right through to the different communities, there was a very homely atmosphere. The staff all seemed to work together and provided a very enjoyable day for residents and their families.

Both my parents have been in Greenhill for 12 months. On the whole, the care and support has been very good. There were some issues with dads care at first - ending in hospitalisation, since then he has been monitored carefully. Mam's care has been very good and improvements to her room have helped (replacement floor). The staff are very caring and friendly, although sometimes not pro-active. However, they always respond when asked.

My Cousin has been a resident at Greenhill Manor for nearly 4 years now. Prior to my Cousin being placed into care and on the advice of the Manager at Greenhill Manor, who also made the necessary arrangements for my Cousin to visit the home for a couple of hours during his transition from the local Hospital, to enable him to get a feel for what it was like at Greenhill Manor. We choose this particular Care Home due to its location. My Cousin absolutely loved it there from those couple of hours and remains very contented. Management and Staff are absolutely fantastic and my Cousin is always praising his carers to me each time I visit. He refers to the Home like a Hotel and states he feels like a very welcome guest. From being apprehensive of going into care to being 100% happy makes all the difference to my Cousin and our family, knowing he will be looked after with no worries. Keep up the tremendous work you do, you don't know how much it means. I thank you for that.

My uncle recently had to be rushed to the local hospital and he was accompanied by a staff member from 'Cocklebird' community at Greenhill. When I arrived at the hospital the staff member that accompanied my uncle from the home was doing a brilliant job of keeping my uncle (dementia resident) calm and the hospital staff fully informed and me updated (I believe he stayed beyond his shift end - a real credit to himself and Greenhill Manor). All the staff I encounter also do an excellent job under often difficult times, not just with my uncle but with all residents who are treated with care, respect and humanity. I am a frequent visitor at all sorts of times.

Mumm moved here from a council home as she was considered bed bound, and I cannot fault how she has been treated at Greenhill. Staff are wonderful and welcoming. We visit twice a day and any concerns we have are dealt with promptly. Mam is 100 in September and we are happy with her care.

Since my mother has been resident at Greenhill Manor she has had excellent care. The staff, carers and management all treat my mother with dignity and are very caring. They show genuine concern for my mother and have an excellent rapport with family and visitors alike. Before moving to Greenhill, my mother was continually picking up infections and was really unhappy. Her overall health has since improved and her general demeanour has completely changed. She is much happier, as are her family.

My mother has been in Greenhill Manor since April. The care they have shown her has been exceptional. There is always a choice of food and activities are plentiful. The staff do above and beyond their role and with a smile. I believe this is down to the strong leadership from the manager of the home, he makes himself available at anytime.

As this is the only care home I have had dealings with it is difficult to be judgemental in many reports. We did however visit a number of others before choosing this one. Our general opinion of Greenhill Manor is good, though there are signs occasionally that the staff do no have time to finish off their jobs fully. The individual member of staff who you deal with can also leave you feeling differently to if you had dealt with another individual but I guess that applies in all walks of life.

Thank you for your comments, including that you are likely to recommend us, that was great to read. I wanted to confirm all team members have the same level of training but I will arrange to meet with you so we can chat about your concerns in person.

From the manager, bursar to the care staff everyone is friendly, caring and happy. The ethos is a warm welcome and the care of the highest standard.
