Domnall Care Home, Belfast, County Down

Domnall Intermediate Care Centre, based in Belfast, is a home-from-home in every possible way. It works in partnership with South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust to provide short-term rehabilitation or ongoing assessment to determine long-term needs for older people.

Intermediate care allows people who are medically stable to complete their recovery in homely and welcoming surroundings, rather than in a hospital ward. While they’re relaxing at the home, people still receive the same day-to-day care they would receive in hospital, provided by the fully qualified nurses, carers and clinical support teams.

The team help people regain their old sense of confidence and independence with physiotherapy and occupational therapy along with a great activities and entertainment programme, so they are fully prepared to return home when the time comes.

Bedrooms are pleasantly decorated and carefully cleaned and maintained. The lounges are bright and airy and provide a lively space with a TV or a quiet room for a spot of reading. The gardens are inviting and well-maintained.

A variety of nutritious home-cooked meals are served in the spacious communal dining rooms to help with the rehabilitation process.

Reviews

7.9 Domnall Care Home has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.900)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Domnall 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 4.458 for Domnall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.458

  • 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 3.442 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Domnall 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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.

Reviewer Connection to Domnall Care Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

Very good pharmacy, physio and care assistants and doctors. I have one point of concern my mother was admitted to Domnall Care Home on 19th January 2018. The hospital that did hip surgery sent 56 days of supply of medication with the ambulance taking her to Domnall Care Home two days later the doctor changed her medication took her off her sleeping tablet and fluid tablet. My mother never got any sleep until Monday 22nd January. There is only a doctor on call service at weekends and they could not help my mother

This is the second stay for my mum in Domnall Care Home. I totally recommend this place.
The care she has received has been outstanding and the staff are so caring. Nothing is too much trouble.
I would recommend this place to anyone who is in need of respite or rehab.
