Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Greenacres 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 36 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Greenacres in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.464 for Greenacres is calculated as follows: ( (244 Excellents x 5) + (150 Goods x 4) + (31 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 431 Ratings = 4.464

  • 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 4.938 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Greenacres is based on 12 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.938

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

9.4 Greenacres has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.402) from 36 Reviews

Mum has been in Greenacres for approx 4 years. During that time she has been looked after very well and seems very happy with all aspects of care. The staff are all very attentive and well trained. Prior to Mum going to Greenacres, we had visited other care homes in the area and chose Greenacres - a decision we are still pleased with.

My mother resided at Greenacres for the best part of two years until she had to move to a nursing home for nursing care. The home was always clean and Mum had a good sized, well-decorated room, that was always clean and cosy. All the staff, from manager to care staff and maintenance man were always pleasant and helpful to my mum and to family and other visitors. All in all, the home is as near to a home from home as anywhere could be.

My mother moved into Greenacres Care home at the end of November 2017 due to declining health and mobility problems. She immediately liked her modern en-suite room and the range and standard of food provided and was made to feel very welcome by all the staff she met. She was very homesick for the first two weeks but was treated with respect and encouraged to get involved in the activities etc. She has now settled in and says that the staff cannot do enough for her, and are always very pleasant and polite. So thank you all for looking after her so well and helping her to get used to this very big change in her life.

Having my mother in law admitted to Greenacres care home because of dementia, I am quite satisfied with the care and attention of all the staff. She has settled in nicely and appears to be OK.
The home itself is very nice and clean and also has things going on for the residents to enjoy. The rooms are very nice with a wet room, TV, wardrobe, easy armchairs and comfy beds.
Overall I would say to be recommended.

My aunt visited several times before making her decision to move to Greenacres. The staff were welcoming and friendly. What really came across was their willingness to make her feel at home and at ease. From the first visit through to her assessment and finally the small touches like the 'welcome to your new home' card helped her move. All the facilities, activities and resident's involvement are carefully thought through. The building and furnishings are well looked after and all have a pride in their work.

Visited Greenacres with a view to locating a permanent room for my 91-year-old mother who has mobility problems and dementia.
We were shown around by F.O.H manager and were very impressed with the facilities on offer. WE were particularly impressed with all the staff who seemed very happy and has a good professional approach. Mum is now settling in and I feel sure that she will be very happy.

My mother receives very good care at Greenacres. She has severe memory impairment, dementia, but retains the majority of her personality. She is unable herself to tell me about her care. However, it is clear that all the staff care for and seem to like her. They have a good, cheerful and understanding relationship with her.
Greenacres are aware that I had earlier been concerned about a lack of activities but I believe recently there are more activities and a regular list of events. This I believe benefits my mother even though she does not directly recall them.
In summary, I am content that mum receives good care in a friendly atmosphere and that those around her also enjoy a good standard of care.
I recommend Greenacres to others with dementia issues and whose relatives or carers want to sure of a good standard of care.

Mother is in good, caring hands at Greenacres which is important as her health fluctuates and mobility decreases. Her room is personalised with her own furniture, pictures etc. Entertainment in-house is not to mother's taste so she writes letters, reads, listens to the radio and watches tv in her room, and staff have arranged transport and the company of a carer to enable her to go to a concert in the town which was much appreciated. She has a room on the ground floor which enables her to see people passing by, and trees which change with the seasons, which is important to her. The home is kept clean and is spacious and well maintained.

Cannot fault the food provided which is fresh and quite varied.
Concerns over the extreme lack of activity provision for all residents along with general interaction between staff and residents in order to keep their minds active.
I regularly have to look for glasses (one pair lost) and false teeth on my visit. My uncle is on the first floor but staff found his teeth in the office downstairs recently.
Sometimes he is not fully dressed on a morning i.e missing socks, underpants, two shirts on, someone else shoes on.
It is assuring though that he is kept warm and secure both within his comfortable room and lounge area. all staff seem to be quite caring though possibly preoccupied by office work duties at times.

It is not that easy to assess how happy my aunt is in terms of how she finds the home. Being nearly blind and hard of hearing and with other issues at times she can misunderstand what is going on around her. Maybe at times the home could do more to explain things to her with regard to what or why this has happened.
Her pet hate is having to wait for anything, she has always been used to doing what she wanted when she wanted which I know cannot happen all the time in her current environment.
She was very much into choral / classical music which is something which seems lacking in the home.
Her episode with another person does not go down very well at all and she finds it very intimidating.
Overall though I think Aunt M is happy enough in the home.

I have always found the care given at Greenacres to be to a high standard. The staff are friendly, helpful, patient with the residents, and very professional. The place is clean, bright and airy. Bedrooms are well aired during the day. Meals appear to be healthy and appetising and care is taken to encourage residents to eat when they become difficult with eating.

The care my brother has received at Greenacres Care Home, Meltham has been excellent. The staff throughout, from management to catering staff have always shown compassion and understanding. The home itself is purpose built and the emphasis is put on 'openness and freedom' for its residents. The care staff are experienced and this is evident in their communications with resident's family and friends. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of any activities going on in different lounges and to socialise where possible.

My sister and I are very pleased with the care my mother receives. The carers are very considerate and encouraging, always cheerful and keep us well informed. Although there are a lot of resources for activities no one seems to have the time to encourage the residents to participate. My mother complains that she doesn't know what activities there are and is unable to comprehend the very complicated spreadsheet outlining the weekly activities. A daily board which the residents could easily see would be a bonus. My 'excellent' score for staff refers to the carers. Sometimes the front of house staff can be unwelcoming and offhand.

My mother has been in Greenacres for two years in a residential unit and then onto a E.M.I residential unit. All members of staff have given patience, understand and concern, showing always their full commitment towards the care, safety, comfort and well being my mother. The meals are excellent and she has the freedom of choice to eat with other residents in the dining area or else on her own in her room. Greenacres is light and spacious, clean and well maintained. I have never felt any anxiety for my mothers welfare in the home, I trust the care there completely. Any problems have always been readily respected and dealt with.

Mum is well looked after and cared for. The staff keep me and the family well informed of any problems either by telling us when we visit or by telephone. The new manager never seems available when we would like to see her and the receptionist seems to fob us off and says I can help you with any problems. The staff in general, do an excellent job, but being refused to see the manager, I do not like. We were always able to see the previous manager.

My husband has been in care at Greenacres since 2011. The food is very good and care he gets is very good when he lets them. Only thing I will say as a negative is not enough staff, they seem to have a lot leave and then new ones come and go. For the residents this is not good. If this can be addressed it would be better as then the residents would have more one to one care.

My sister and I are very happy with the care our mum gets at Greenacres, she has now been there for five and a half years suffering with dementia. All the staff are really friendly and we class them as friends as well as carers. Mum hasn't much quality of life but the staff try their best to keep her cheerful and seem to love her. The food is always good and there are always plenty of drinks available. Mum is always clean and her dignity kept as much as possible. We have no hesitation in recommending this home to people who have parents in the same position

After considerable research of care homes in the area we chose Greenacres for my husband who suffered from dementia. This was undoubtedly the best decision we could have made. The staff showed him such care, kindness, and affection. He was treated with total dignity and visiting relatives now count the staff there as friends. We would highly recommend Greenacres to anyone in a similar situation.

Following a rapid deterioration in my elderly fathers condition we were fortunate to obtain a residency for him at Greenacres.

The communal facilities and his room were modern, well decorated and to a satisfactory standard but the most important factor was the care and respect shown by the staff who showed a genuine interest in my father.
