Reviews

7.9 Ty Gwynno Care Home has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.910)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Ty Gwynno Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ty Gwynno Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.718 for Ty Gwynno Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.718

  • 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 3.192 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ty Gwynno Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.192

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

My mother has been in Ty Gwynno for 19 months and every time I call in to see my mum the staff are outstanding in every way. I can't recommend this home enough. It is clean and tidy and caring and the food is fabulous. 10/10.

We visit our sister as often as we can and always found the staff and facilities very good. From the chef who offers us tea or coffee to the staff that put on the different things that are going on to keep the patients occupied which I think is essential because I think there is nothing worse for people to be left with nothing to occupy their minds. From the cleaners down everyone is very helpful and good. Myself, I am 85 yrs young.

My mum has been in Ty Gwynno for a few months now and I must say it is a lovely home. It is kept 100% clean and all the staff work hard and have plenty of time to speak to and see to the needs of each resident. I spend a few hours a week visiting my mam and always feel welcome. My mam now has friends and is very happy here.
