The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Awel-y-Mor Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Awel-y-Mor Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.564 for Barchester Awel-y-Mor Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 117 Ratings = 4.564

  • 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 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.

    The 4.446 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Awel-y-Mor Care Centre is based on 5 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.446

My brother has been in Awel-y-Mor Care Centre for about 4 years.
His main carer (our mother) passed away in 2011, but he had been in other care establishments prior to arriving in Gorseinon.
With Down syndrome and unable to communicate, he went through a harrowing grieving period.
He needed good nursing care, which he has always received in Awel-y-Mor.
My sister and I have been very pleased with the overall care.
The staff are friendly every time I visit.

Awel-y-Mor provides a home from home environment for its clients and excellent support for their families. The staff are caring and the standards of both medical and emotional support are high. I would recommend the facility to anyone who is or has a family member in the same situation. My husband has been here 15 years now. I think that says a lot about the place. It's his home.

My wife became a resident in Awel-y-Mor Care Centre in April 2016, prior to this date she enjoyed respite care there starting in 2002. I have nothing but praise for the standard of care my wife has received over many years. My wife is very happy and settled here. It is a great weight off my shoulders knowing that she is very well cared for.

My experience is very good from the time I moved in, I was welcomed by all staff and all the staff are all very helpful to me. As a visitor to the home several times a week I can say I have always been welcomed when entering and always been kind and friendly.

We as a family have had an excellent experience here. The management and carers are professional, knowledgably and very caring to residents and visitors alike. The facilities and activities are excellent, plentiful and well run and there are many communal areas to suit individual needs. A care home is never going to be quite like a private home (living in your own home) but I'd say this is as close as it gets.
