Reviews

8.8 Barchester Llys-y-Tywysog has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.758)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Llys-y-Tywysog 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Llys-y-Tywysog in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.638 for Barchester Llys-y-Tywysog is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.638

  • 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 4.12 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Llys-y-Tywysog is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.370

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

We visited a family friend for the home's 25th anniversary of Barchester. We had a wonderful welcome from the staff.
The residents were all happy and smiling, enjoying the great afternoon. There was a concert and stalls with Beaty and the Beast there, they were staff members dressed up, which was a nice touch.
The home was clean and beautifully decorated for the fete.
We do visit the home occasionally but this was the first time we had been to an event - it won't be the last.
There is a feeling of being part of a big happy family at Llys-y-Tywysog.
Well done!

We visited Llys-y-Tywysog for a fete. A family friend has lived there for some time. We always have a warm welcome there, but this was the first time we'd been for a social event.
It was busy with lots going on. The residents were having a great time. There was a concert going on. Staff and residents were up dancing - the staff even did the 'conga'!
The chef was doing a BBQ which was tasty. Nursing homes get a lot of bad press but it just shows there are some excellent ones as well.

All the staff are very helpful, especially the care assistants who I think are understaffed. Find there should be more of a continuity of nursing staff, too many agency staff deployed, who do not get to know the specific needs of residents because of them I find information is not always passed on!

Unfortunately, the latest manager has left which is not good for the morale of staff, residents and family members. There seems to be a very high turnover of management, which makes you wonder why! I would recommend the home as the staff, carers and nurses are very caring and helpful in a very challenging working environment.

I was to stay 5 nights for care as my son had brought me from Wakefield for a break to see his home and my favourite Swansea. I had requested a hospital bed, full reclining chair and a morning shower, I got it all. I like the food at breakfast and I felt secure and at ease. It made my stay happy as the carers were very good and even managed my elastic knee socks in good humour. I will, God willing come and stay again.
