Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Abney Court 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 57 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abney Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.76 for Abney Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (530 Excellents x 5) + (133 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 678 Ratings = 4.76

  • 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 Abney Court Care Home is based on 23 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 16 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.

9.8 Abney Court Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.760) from 57 Reviews

Obviously a difficult decision, where to place a loved one when they need care. I could not be happier with the choice of Abney Court. The standards of facilities, cleanliness care and staffing are everything you could hope for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Abney Court to anyone.

Mum is very well looked after each and every day. Her dementia needs are well catered for. The staff are really really lovely. The whole family is made very welcome whenever we arrive to see Mum. The home and its surroundings ensure that you don't see yourself as visiting a care home more a home away from home. So glad we as a family found Abney Court Care Home.

The service user for whom I have the lasting power of attorney entered Abney Court Care Home in the early stages of Dementia and is now approaching the final stages. She has been resident there for 2 years. Throughout that period her changing needs have been met with sympathy and addressed with sensitivity and efficiency. I cannot imagine that more could have been done to ensure her quality of life.
The care staff are all friendly and kind towards their charges. Whenever my friend has had need of medical attention it has been arranged swiftly and effectively. The admin staff are friendly and efficient in the discharge of their duties. Visitors are welcomed warmly.
A full range of varied activities is always available for the residents.
The current chef makes exceptional cakes!
We understand that clothes need to be washed at a high temperature to avoid cross-infection, but this process does have a 'shrinking' effect. Also, some clothes go missing in the process. Otherwise, can't fault the place.

This is my second review as my mother has now been at Abney Court for nearly 18 months. Overall I am very happy with her care. There have been many ups and downs with my mother's health and some issues are not as common as perhaps other residents may have. I feel the staff at Abney have coped very well with any such issues and always appear patient and supportive. Abney Court is still a lovely place to visit, it always seems bright and welcoming with fresh flowers, cakes etc. and generally a nice atmosphere. The variety of activities is excellent and I am so grateful that despite the fact that Mum will often say no she is still always invited to join in.

I try to visit my friend about once a week and she usually appears to be happy and well cared for. Visitors are welcomed at all reasonable times and have access to most parts of the home. My friend has dementia and thinks she is staying in a hotel. The staff are friendly and appear to enjoy interacting with the residents even in difficult situations. I think it is one of the best care homes I have visited.

I am very happy with the care being given to my mother, who has advanced dementia. I know that she's steadily declining (as a result of the dementia) and I'm comfortable that everything possible is being done by the staff to care for her in the best possible way.

I stayed in Abney Court for three weeks for respite care after surgery. I researched many hones and Abney Court care Home was my first choice, it felt more like a hotel than a care home.
The coffee shop was a lovely place to meet other residents and also entertain my visitors who were very impressed. All the staff were extremely friendly and caring and nothing was too much trouble for them to do whatever I wanted.
The activities and entertainment were very varied. I would go back to Abney Court if I needed respite care again.

Abney Court challenged all my preconceptions about care homes. Wonderful caring staff who really know the meaning of person-centred care. Fantastic facilities, including a lovely coffee shop, cinema and hairdressers. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and full of fun!! The activities staff work extremely hard to ensure there is a weekly schedule of interesting and engaging activities. Mum initially came for respite and loved it so much, she is now a permanent resident.

My mum has been at Abney Court for seven months, initially for respite care but then she decided to stay on a permanent basis.
She has settled here really well, is very well cared for, is happy and has made good friends.
It is a pleasure to visit her at Abney, we always feel welcome.

I have been very impressed by the facilities here, but above all by the staff. All the care staff have been well selected for the way they deal with residents - respectfully, kindly, with patience and with humour. This is not only when they know a relative is in earshot, but also when they are not aware a relative is nearby. There is also a separate team of 'lifestyle' staff who have been equally well chosen for their cheerfulness, thoughtfulness and indefatigable enthusiasm. They organise activities ranging from Tai Chi, through to animal petting, regular singers, dancers and trips out in the minibus. There is also an extremely comfortable cinema with regular film shows.

The building has been well planned and even though large, has been divided into smaller more personal units. The furnishings are attractive, comfortable and homely. It is always kept scrupulously clean. Some staff have said that Abney is a much better place to work than their previous care home employers.

My ninety-five-year-old mother took up a place at Abney Court at the turn of the year, after a stint in hospital. She was finding it difficult to look after herself at home and was encouraged by the family to move somewhere where she could receive the support she needed. All I can say is that the home is excellent and although very expensive, caters for all my mother's needs.

Since settling my mother and father in law in Abney Court, a huge weight has been lifted. We had been coping with them for 3 years without any help. Abney Court now takes care of them physically and emotionally, fulfilling their every need in a way that we couldn't do. The activities are amazing and my mother in law is thriving and enjoying life again.

My Mum has been a resident for over a year at Abney Court.
It has taken her a while to settle but that is due to her deteriorating Alzheimer's, not the home.
The staff are friendly and caring.
She and the other residents are always treated with respect and they ensure residents' dignity is maintained.
The rooms are cleaned daily and are homely and bright.
Regular activities are scheduled each day and there are frequent day trips. The day trips cost extra which you have to bear in mind as weekly rates are expensive.
On the whole, I am happy with the care my Mum receives, I can sleep at night knowing someone is there looking after her.

My husband really enjoys coming to Abney for day care on Wednesdays. He enjoys going on walks and loves the cinema. I am happy that the food is very well balanced - not too much stodge. I am also happy that the atmosphere is very clean and that there is no smell usually connected with care homes. I am very satisfied with the care he receives from all the staff.

This was my first visit and I was very impressed by the standard and reception from staff at all levels.
I only put good on value because I just think these places are so expensive. I totally understand it is very difficult looking after people with dementia and you all do a grand job. It is very difficult looking after people with dementia, everyone has to be so very patient and understanding. Thank you.

Abney Court was a real find for me, having to find a care home for my mother who was suffering from dementia. I looked around a number of homes but none matched the facilities of Abney Court. She became a resident in October 2015 and since then the care she has received has matched my expectations.

My aunt was one of the very first residents to stay here when it opened in 2015, so we have seen it grow and prosper into a wonderful, caring home. The staff are marvellous always have time to stop and have a conversation with you. I have had many laughs with them. They look after my aunt with such meticulous care and its the first care home that my aunt has not complained about- keep up the good work!! I myself have no complaints regarding all staff cleaners, handyman, carers, management, cooks, they are all AMAZING!!

I could not be happier with the care and attention shown to my Dad by everyone at Abney. They are compassionate, motivated, organised, skilled and full of fun. If I'd known that this was what care homes could be like I would have been a lot less nervous about embarking on my search for a new home for my Dad.

Abney Court provides it's residents with a warm, caring and safe environment. Nothing is too much trouble, whether it is catering for a family lunch in the private dining room or getting the family dog a drink of water.
My husband is receiving excellent care and because of this, is making a rapid post-operative recovery. I can't speak highly enough about the staff and their friendly support for all residents. Only one improvement - Sky!!

This care home is an exceptional example of individualised.personal and compassionate care. They have looked after my mum with such kindness and put so much thought into how to make her stay with them happy and stimulating, always thinking about her welfare. They have shown the same degree of concern to us as relatives and knowing mum has been so well cared for has helped the family deal with our difficult personal circumstances. The staff are warm, approachable and families are always welcome to be involved. A wonderful role model for the way care services should be run. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My mum has dementia and has been living alone for the last 3 and a half years with a lot of help from myself and some carers/companions. I must say the transition here has been amazing. My mum seems very happy and entertained. She is always clean and tidy and suitably dressed. My mum has made some lovely friends here.

Staff are caring and conscientious and interact well with the residents. The facilities are very good and residents are encouraged to interact with each other and to participate in the organised activities. Apart from at meal times, families and friends can visit at any time and are made to feel welcome by all staff. feedback from staff can be conflicting at times. The care home is surrounded by extensive gardens that provide an excellent environment for residents in good weather.

Overall I feel the care that my gran has received has been good. The care home is always very clean. The rooms are a good size. There have been some concerns with medication being given late, however things seem to have improved recently. Concerns regarding my gran have always been dealt with by the care home by asking a doctor to come and review. However we have not always been informed until after the fact. The staff are all very kind and caring and my gran seems to be happy in her new home.

We’re grateful for your feedback and are delighted with the positive comments and scores for the care and support we provide. We would also like to thank you for the constructive feedback and the care home manager would be very happy to discuss any concerns with you in person when you next visit the home.

Abney Court is a lovely building in a lovely area. All the staff are very helpful and take pride in what they do and clearly enjoy their job. It's a very clean environment and the rooms are very spacious and well facilitated. Only negative thing I have to say is there could be more activities.

I visit every 2 weeks or so and always find the carers, nurses and admin staff very friendly and helpful. They all like dad and ensure he is happy,

I came to the home being referred from hospital for intermediate care after having fluid on the lungs. I felt very weak in hospital and unable to do things for myself. Having stayed with you for nearly three weeks. I felt almost completely recovered and able to cope again. Abney Court was an excellent half way house for me. The staff were all very kind and patient and cared for me well. I enjoyed socialising with other people. The coffee bar was an excellent facility for my visitors. I enjoyed my stay at Abney Court.

My father was apprehensive before his stay but really enjoyed it and will go again next time I go on holiday for respite care. He thinks that the staff were first class and he says that it was good in there! Gives us more options for the future.

My husband an Alzheimer sufferer spent three days of day care at Abney Court prior to a weeks stay for respite care. I was initially worried about how he would cope with a new environment and new staff. I need not have worried he thoroughly enjoyed his day care and it became clear immediately that he was relaxed and settled due to the standard of care and attention that he received. This continued throughout the period of respite care. Wen I visited it was comforting and re-assuring to see how relaxed and happy he was. There was much evidence that the staff and the facilities combine to produce a supportive and caring atmosphere. The staff were brilliant and it meant that I to could relax, safe in the knowledge that he was being very well cared for at all times. Thank You

I came to Abney Court for respite, after being placed in an awful care home. Initially I came for a week, but enjoyed it so much I stayed another week. Would not hesitate to book myself in again should the situation occur!

My 91 year old nanna who suffers from Alzheimer's came to Abney Court for respite care. Abney Court was just newly opened when we arrives. It has been beautifully decorated and is clean, bright and airy. The staff have been wonderful, especially the manager who has been there for us from the initial visit, making sure everything runs smoothly. My nana always has a carer with her and they always treat her with dignity and respect, seeming to go that extra mile to make sure she is happy. My nanna has been pampered in the hair salon, having her hair, nail and feet done, and has really enjoyed the range of activities provided for her. The only really downside is the cost compared to other care home which is ok for a little break, but I thing we would struggle permanently.
