Reviews

8.2 Drummohr Care Home has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.189)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Drummohr 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 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Drummohr Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.772 for Drummohr Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.772

  • 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 3.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Drummohr Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.167

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

Staff very welcoming and always with a smile.
Drummohr feels like "a happy home". Dad's weight was very low when we arrived. With the help of masses of good wholesome food and snacks, we see a difference in him. Dad is offered to take part in lots of activities and encouraged with other stuff.
After years of caring for dad and the challenges that were brought with them, we are now able to just enjoy dad knowing he is in good hands.

My friend was in the above care home just over 15 months and I found she was well cared for. She also enjoyed the food. The entertainment and activities were excellent which all helped her to adjust and enjoy her time there. She as well as her room was kept as clean and tidy as possible. The staff were all friendly and caring even at difficult times. I think the staff do a marvellous job.

Drummohr Care Home staff are genuinely friendly, caring and endlessly patient. I couldn't wish for a better place for my father, who is not an easy character to deal with. Medical attention is prompt and of a high standard. All my father's wishes and requirements are dealt with promptly and with a total acceptance of his own peculiar foibles. Standards of cleanliness are also consistently high. I would unhesitatingly recommend Drummohr to anyone who is looking for a care home for a family member.

Mum has been a resident here for three years and is very happy here. The care team are very friendly and knowledgeable about every aspect of mum's needs. The diet provided here has resulted in mum no longer needing diabetic medication, which is fantastic. There are lots of activities each day for the residents and social outings too. Mum loves cuddles and the care team make sure she gets lots of these! All in all, we couldn't be happier with the level of care provided for our very special wee mum by the staff and Drummohr Care Home. As we live in London it's great to know that mum is in such good hands.

I am delighted with the care my mum is receiving at Drummhor. The home has a lovely relaxed ambience, a very homely feel. The residents spend time in the lounge where activities take place or some like to sit in the foyer to welcome visitors. The staff are all wonderful and treat all residents with respect, in fact, they are so very caring. The food is all cooked freshly on the premises great variety, something for everyone and plenty of it. Very clean and no smell.

My gran entered in to Drummohr on 23/12/15 with history of low quality care and a very anxious family. My gran is diagnosed with dementia. I myself work in care and have experienced this industry in various locations and numerous roles and I am in awe at the way the manager runs the care home- creating a loving and welcoming environment at all times. The manager is so hands on making sure she is familiar with every guest and their families between her and the senior carer my gran has come on extraordinarily, they have literally given her her life back. They do not label my gran as another lady with dementia, they see the person that she was and is. I am so grateful to the staff at Drummohr especially the manager and other staff who deal with her on a regular basis, keeping her safe and happy, all that we want and more.

My mum (age 89) has been a resident in Drummohr for nearly 2 years. I had a great deal of fear and trepidation when I first arranged for her care in the home. Mum has Alzheimer's is doubly incontinent and has severe impairment of intelligence. However she has not deteriorated that much in the 2 years thanks to the care she receives from the home. I visit her every week for 2 hours and see first hand the hard work/care that goes on which I will describe:
"Happy atmosphere", "Plenty of activities", "Clean facilities-bathes/showers/wet rooms".
"Pleasant staff", "Lovely one to ones with staff and mum".
"Treat mum with dignity when attending to her incontinence need", "Lovely meals- staff encourage/help mum to eat", "Mum has good mobility so is able to go to tea dances, shopping trips with staff in the homes mini bus".

I have nothing but praise for all members of staff. The care my mother-in-law receives is splendid. She has been in home, no issues. A very clean and pleasant bedroom, well serviced and kept very tidy.

For my aunts birthday, the family had planned to take her out for a meal, but unfortunately she wasn't fit enough. Instead the staff arranged for us to use the private room and they supplied all the food including her cake. Thank you Drummohr Care Home.

Mum has moved into Drummohr Care Home in December 2015 when it became apparent that the residential care home where she stayed could no longer give her the care she needed. She was diagnosed with alzheimers in 2008 and her behaviour was becoming very challenging. I have found the staff very good and very professional when working with mum. The staff are very helpful and willing to listen to any concerns I have, either about mum or myself. I am very happy with the care mum receives.
