The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Ty Penrhos 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ty Penrhos in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.792 for Ty Penrhos is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 4.017 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ty Penrhos is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.267

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

My mum has been a resident at Ty Penrhos for almost 2 years. My mum's care has been excellent and the staff are fantastic. They were able to get mum back walking when she entered the home after having been in hospital for several months. As a family, we only wish mum could have been in Ty Penrhos earlier in her illness when she would have been able to experience the care home's activity programme. Well done Ty Penrhos.

The staff and care at Ty Penrhos is absolutely excellent. The Carers become part of your family, my dad sadly passed away this month whilst at Ty Penrhos and I can honestly say without the staff supporting us as a family, we would never have got through this upsetting time. Dad was always clean and tidy and loved the carers so much. My dad's illness was first described to us as a journey one which the staff at Ty Penrhos, were with us every step of the way. The Love and devotion they showed not only to dad but the other residents too, was excellent whilst always being able to remain professional at the same time. I am very proud to say that 6 of the carers from the unit dad was a resident on, were bearers at my dads funeral, so I can truly say they cared for my dad right to the very end of his journey. We will be eternally grateful to all at Ty Penrhos for the care and dedication they gave to us all especially dad. Thank You.

My mother has been at Ty Penrhos since March 2016. This is a fantastic facility for dementia/nursing and residential care. Within days of coming out of the hospital, the kind staff has settled mum into the home. The staff working in this home are 5 Star. They are compassionate, friendly, loving, sympathetic and go the extra mile to help the residents feel like that are in their own home. The nursing staff and care staff keep in contact with relatives and keep us up to date with any issues involving mum.
The entertainment staff in the home put on lovely social events and activities for the residents too. Ty Penrhos provides such great care, that our family have had a weight of worry lifted off our shoulders, knowing that our mum is so well cared for and all her needs are met. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a care home bed in the Cardiff/Caerphilly area to visit Ty Penrhos and assess the comfortable conditions provided for residents themselves.
