Reviews

9.3 Larkhill Hall has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.258)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Larkhill Hall is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Larkhill Hall in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.652 for Larkhill Hall is calculated as follows: ( (230 Excellents x 5) + (91 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 333 Ratings = 4.652

  • 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 4.606 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Larkhill Hall 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 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.606

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

My Aunt spent her last few years at Larkhill Hall. It is an amazing place and I want to thank every person who works there for looking after my Aunt. You all care so much and you're all more like family to her. I will never forget you all and will recommend Larkhill Hall to anyone as it's run by special people who go the extra mile. Thank you all.

My mum has lived in Larkhill Hall over two years. During this time, we have visited 3 times as we live in the USA. The facility has improved since the beginning. Interaction and entertainment are much better. Providing activities is very important for dementia patients and I'm glad to see this is happening. Otherwise being deaf, my mum would be sleeping in front of the TV. I call from the USA nearly every week to check on Mum and the staff do their best to take the phone to her or wake her in the lounge. This is important as she knows me on the phone.

I live in the USA so it was very important for us to chose a care facility that would provide excellent care for our mother who has Dementia.
She has lived here for 2.5 years. The staff and new manager are very friendly and helpful. The residents are treated with dignity and respect.
We looked at six places before choosing this location, this is the best.
Our mum loves it here and looked after very well.
Thank you.

Mum has been here for 2 years and we are pleased with her care. The staff are always friendly, helpful and treat mum with kindness and dignity.
I did notice some improvements from our last visit. There seem to be more activities which I believe are very important for the residents.
Facebook is a good way for us to see how mum is doing so please continue this.

My mum has settled into the home in the last year. She is very happy and well looked after. Her lifestyle has vastly improved since living here due to the interaction and attention from the staff and other residents.
She has put on weight and now sleeps at the correct time of day which has brought normality back to her life.
Thank you to all staff and management for the continued hard work and effort.

I moved my Mum from another care home due to serious issues with her care and I can't praise Larkhill Hall enough for the understanding and compassion we received from all the staff, the manager at Larkhill was totally understanding during a very stressful time for our family. My Mum is treated as an individual with the utmost of kindness and all of her needs are met, staff show kindness and are dedicated to the care and wellbeing of the residents. I honestly can't speak highly enough of the wonderful way in which this care home is run my Mum's health has improved and she seems much happier now, she is offered tasty nutritious meals there is always delicious smells coming from the kitchen!! staff always seem to have time to reassure residents who are confused, I just wish all care homes were run like Larkhill Hall well done to all the staff you do an amazing job!!

We are very happy with my Mother's care in Larkhill Hall.
For the last two weeks the home has been closed because of a virus among residents and staff.
The family was very concerned because my Mother has no voice and can not easily communicate her needs. We need not have worried because she was very well looked after and all her needs catered for. The internal manager and staff struggled but came through for the residents. Well done!

I just want to commend the staff and management for all their professionalism and care during the recent outbreak of Noro-type virus in Larkhill Hall. Despite it being hard on the relatives and residents, closing the facility to outside visitors was incredibly responsible and forward thinking in order to contain the spread of the virus which must have added a huge burden on to the staff, who themselves were exposed to this awful bug. Thank you all for the extra work and care that you have given to my mum and all the other residents. Well done.

This is a fabulous care home. My father has been a resident for 18 months and the care and attention he gets from the careers and general staff is second to none. The standard of cleanliness is high and the cleaning staff are a delight! In fact all the staff should be praised from the warm welcome you receive at reception to the handyman/gardener. They all make my dad feel wanted and cared for. It really is a pleasure to visit. The nursing home does it's best to keep days interesting for residents by organising visits to the residents by external artists to days out. Well done Larkhill Hall.

We are happy with dad's care mostly, but occasionally we notice that the home needs more staff to attend to residents needs. Also, rooms and bathrooms could be cleaned better, and more care taken with laundry eg. stains still on clothes and wrong clothes left in the room. Also upsetting to see relatives with food on them and clothes.
We are happy with nearly all the staff and their caring ways, and if we have concerns, they are mostly, dealt with.

More staff are needed on the floor, still same amount of staff on duty now as when dad first arrived here and the floor was not full!
Dad does not get shaved daily, I nearly always do it and he looks very dishevelled.
All staff are very helpful when you ask them something, but some areas are lacking

On entering the home it is beautiful all the staff are friendly and mum is very happy there. But since mum went in in March 2015 her clothes and some belongings have gone missing even though we paid £25 to have them tagged, we have replaced them and mum got more for her birthday of relatives once they go to the laundry we don't see them again, Its a shame. Sometimes when I go out she is not dressed properly and she can't dress herself, we are not happy about that.

Staff are always helpful and attentive to residents needs, the care home always appears well staffed with more than adequate carer/resident ratio. I feel comfortable with approaching staff with queries/problems, which if have occurred have been dealt with swiftly and concluded successfully. My mother appears to enjoy living there and thankfully, never complains about anything to us, which may lead us to question her care. I have on occasion witnessed staff having to deal with difficult scenarios and feel that these were addressed in an appropriate and empathetic way. It goes without saying that the lady from front of house is a wonderful, welcoming member of the team and always willing to help - great work from everyone, thanks.

My mum has mixed dementia / Alzheimer's and became a resident at Larkhill Hall in early November 2015. The home is excellent, very modern, well kept and always spotless. There seems to be plenty of activities and entertainment provided and the staff interact well with the residents. The Christmas party and new year's eve entertainment were great.

It's early days and mum is still settling in but she seems more content on each visit. Communication by the home on any issues is also excellent and, when visiting, the staff have kept us well informed on how she's been. All staff at Larkhill seem very caring, professional, always friendly and upbeat every time I visit.

I feel that my mum is safe in Larkhill Hall, is well looked after and that for her, it is the next best place to being in her own home. It's a pleasure to visit mum there and I don't think we could have found a better home for her. This is how all care homes should be and, based on the relatively short time my mum has been there, I can't recommend it highly enough.

I have been coming to Harkhill for about seven months giving holey communion to residents. The first person I met at the home was time was the receptionist, I felt really welcomed by her and felt her warmth and hospitality right away. I feel the residents are well looked after by all the staff. Who are all friendly and attend to the residents well.

Seeing a family member struggling without no longer being able to use a phone made nan really upset. The staff are so reassuring and allow us at anytime to call and speak to nan, as sometimes hearing my voice calms her down. They will call me if they cannot settle her down of a night. We are so grateful for this, as it makes our night calmer and can sleep knowing nanna is content. Great place. Fantastic and empathic staff.

My family and I spent many weeks looking for the right care placement for my mother who has dementia.
I was a medical professional and had worked with the elderly in care facilities . We knew what care we wanted for our mother and had difficulty finding a place that came close to what we would accept. Until, we found Larkhill Hall. We cannot praise them enough. Our mother has improved immensely and looks so relaxed and younger than when she was struggling at home. My father also spent time at Larkhill on the residential floor, until his passing. They not only cared for my father but supported my sister emotionally during this sad time. I live in another country and I so happy to know that my mother is in such a caring place.

Larkhill is a model example of how all Care Homes should be. Modern, well equipped, built with the needs of residents at the forefront and an attention to detail.

There is clearly an ethos that runs from the management all the way through the staff group that is very person centred. The welcome from reception and at every point onwards is warm, sincere and genuine.

There are so many positives it would be impossible to mention them all, but what I will say is that I have yet to come across a home with higher standards of care, including the physical environment which is second to none.

It is never easy going through the process of choosing a home for your loved one, but Larkhill make it an easier and less stressful process by their thoughtful and empathetic approach.

My dad loves each and every staff member at Larkhill, and that is not easy to achieve for him, he reserves special affection for the Manager, who as the Manager is very hands on and fully involved in all aspects of the home, this is not always the case in other homes and she ensures the quality of care is always maintained, well done to all of you.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Larkhill to anyone looking for a top quality residential home. The only thing I would suggest is the carehome.co.uk may want to introduce another standard above Excellent as this doesn't cover how good Larkhill is, in my view they are way above excellent.
