Quarryfields, Doncaster, South Yorkshire

Quarryfields is a purpose-built home on the outskirts of Doncaster, close to local facilities and transport links. It accommodates people with a learning disability or autistic spectrum disorder, who require personal and/or nursing care.

Care plans are built around each service user, supporting and encouraging them to be happy and fulfilled. Encouraging independence, Quarryfields work with service users, family and professionals to ensure achievable rehabilitation goals are set.

Quarryfields is made up of two eight-bedroom bungalows, two one-bedroom flats and one four-bedroom house. Each have lounge areas, a dining room, and a kitchen. Bedrooms can be personalised to each service users individual tastes, and every bedroom features an en-suite bathroom.

Extended pathways of care are also available; one two-bed flat and two one-bed flats allow service users to live more independently. Once rehabilitation goals have been met, and there is a lesser need for round the clock care, the OneCare service provides the opportunity to return to life in the community. OneCare is also ideal for those with a progressive condition, who can still live on their own but may need nearby support.

Social activities, leisure interests and hobbies are all part of a healthy, balanced life at Quarryfields. An occupational therapist and the Care and Life Skills team work with service users to develop, co-ordinate and encourage hobbies and interests. An accessible minibus and car allow for transport to always be available, further encouraging social trips for everyone.

Quarryfields has a spacious, landscaped garden with a patio, raised flower beds and a potting shed. A communal area is also available for BBQ's and parties, throughout the seasons.

Reviews

9.5 Quarryfields has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.514)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Quarryfields 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Quarryfields in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.514 for Quarryfields is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.514

  • 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 Quarryfields is based on 6 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

My husband and I are very pleased with Quarryfields. Our son's carers are very good with him but he has his favourites.
The management always keeps in touch with us at all times about things that are happening.
All the staff are pleasant to us as well. Overall, we have nothing to be concerned about, but we would be first to let you know if there was anything wrong.
I.e As you can see by our scoring of "good", as "excellent" is perfect and there is always room for improvement.
