Reviews

9.6 Marina Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.620)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Marina Care Home 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Marina Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.62 for Marina Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.62

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Marina Care Home is based on 8 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target Reached = 1

  • 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-in-law has been a resident in Marina Care Home since May 2016. She has settled in extremely well and is made to feel a part of a large family (she is in her 92nd year she enjoys the activities which takes place on a regular basis. She especially enjoyed the bean bag activity where a number of bean bags are thrown onto a mat marked with numbers. She came second and was chuffed to bits. A warm welcome is always given to family members no matter what time of the day/night they visit. Nursing skills (day/night) extremely important and Marina Care Home provides a highly trained and wonderful team.

Since my father moved into this care home in July 16, I have been most impressed with how he has been looked after. The staff are extremely friendly and always give the impression that they want to be helpful. The home is maintained in an excellent manner, well heated and always clean and tidy. There is always a good selection of food. All staff, management, nurses and carers are all to be congratulated for their professionalism and kindness to all the residents.

Mum spent 3 months in the Marina Care Home until her passing at the end of October 2016. The standard of care my mum received was very good from all staff and the support to us as a family was excellent. Any issues raised were dealt with quickly and as a family, we felt that staff, admin and management were always available and approachable. Mum really enjoyed the home cooked meals and the endless cups of tea etc and of course, we as visitors were never left out. Mum had a number of serious medical issues and the nursing staff kept us up to date and explained everything that was happening. As expected, mum's conditions deteriorated and over the last 2-3 weeks, the family were more in attendance. Again, the support we were offered was excellent and the family appreciated all that was done for us but especially for mum until her demise which was handled with dignity and respect for all.

I have always found the staff at the Marina Care Home open and friendly. The emphasis in this home is on good quality care and maintaining the dignity of the residents. The standard of hygiene is very good and I am very satisfied overall with the care my mother receives. I would have found it very difficult to find a better care home than the Marina.
