Reviews

9.8 Wellington Vale Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.841)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Wellington Vale 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 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wellington Vale Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.841 for Wellington Vale Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (213 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.841

  • 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 Wellington Vale Care Home is based on 21 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). 21 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.

Although we experienced a change of manager midway into my 3-week stay, the management and other staff maintained an excellent standard overall. Ease of communication with care staff and immediate response to requests during day and night sessions was evident. Many facilities are available with the home and a mini-coach is on-site. The activities personnel is excellent. Every day different activities are arranged which are enjoyable and therapeutic; outside speakers etc, spend time at the home, so that variety of hobbies are covered. There is a hairdressing unit in the home and a chiropodist visits. The large dining room is pleasantly arranged, service from the chef is outstanding. Outside the grounds are well maintained. The view from some rooms cannot be more lovely. In a residential area, one does not expect this and the rooms are spacious, each with its own ensuite. Excellent.

I look forward to my next stay.

The prospect of looking for a care home filled me with dread and after looking at a few Residential Homes it didn't make me feel any better.
Looking at Wellington Vale was the best thing I ever did, costs were on a par with other residential homes but the standards were massively different.
The staff are absolutely superb, I cannot fault them, they are so good I wanted to move in!
The standards are those you would only expect to find in a 4* hotel, the furnishings are 'normal' and not the chairs around the outside of the room that I had seen before in other homes.
The rooms are of a very high standard and it is surprisingly quiet inside.
The is a coffee area which you can help yourself to coffee, hairdressers, manicurist, restaurant, patio area, picnic area, everything you would want to find.
I cannot recommend the home enough, it is superb, the facilities are superb but most of all the staff and management are fantastic!

On first impression, very much like a hotel. Cleanliness is good/excellent, the staff are very friendly and at every different time that I have visited, there has, from my observation, been no bad treatment of people in the home. The interaction between the staff and patients is good. No undercurrents of nastiness.
The staff are very attentive and do look after the patients, clients. I would definitely book a place for me and also a stay would be good.

My Mother-in-Law moved into Wellington Vale Care Home as a permanent resident, two weeks ago. Prior to moving, she was assessed in hospital by a member of the care home staff, and her family had plenty of access to the home for visits and meetings with the care team. We were all treated with respect and dignity. The transition to the home was made very easy and welcoming and she has settled in happily. All the staff are friendly, caring and address her every need - and have made the wider family welcome to their community. It has been a huge relief to see her happily settled in a loving, safe and friendly environment.

Very helpful, friendly care staff that cared for my mum during her 5 weeks.
Unfortunately, my mum passed away on Christmas Day.
I would recommend this care home because it's like being in your own home with 24/7 support. A fantastic environment that makes you feel part of a family.

Upon entering the establishment, one it greeted by very friendly, happy and smiling staff. The atmosphere is very relaxed and all visitors are made to feel at home and very welcome.
The food is freshly prepared daily and all diets are catered for. The menus are appetising and offer plenty of choices.
The staff work as a team and there is always someone on hand to answer any queries. The staff are attentive to detail as well as to residents and their visitors.
The establishment looks like a 5-star hotel rather than a care home and offers very pleasant and homely surroundings to those who both visit and stay.
There are many activities for residents if they wish to participate.
The establishment engages with the local community and often invites them to join in events. For example, the Christmas carol service in 2016.
Highly recommended for respite stays for both residents and their carers.

My cousin transferred to Wellington Vale in November 2016 just after it opened. The Care Home is in a lovely location with her room having countryside views. The staff are very helpful, friendly and cheerful.
The staff include an Activities Co-Ordinator (read as head of fun !) who provides regular interesting activities for residents including film shows, bingo, musical entertainment etc.
My cousin had her birthday recently and the Care Home arranged a birthday party including buffet food and an excellent external entertainment lady with games. Quizzes etc. Excellent.
Food choices are wide with food quality excellent.
Carers are experienced, genuinely caring and cannot do enough for the residents. They are all friendly with both residents and visitors. The home is led by the superb manager who is very efficient, approachable and good humoured.
Heartily recommend.
Negatives ? None !
