Reviews

9.4 Parklands Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.423)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Parklands Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Parklands Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 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 4.617 for Parklands Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.617

  • 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 4.806 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Parklands Care Home is based on 10 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.806

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

My mother-in-law went into Parklands in very poor health. We didn't expect her to live very long but she stayed there until recently when she passed away.

It was all down to the care she received. In our experience, Parklands is very friendly, welcoming you in on every visit.

Personal care is individualised to the needs of the resident.

Housekeeping, in general, is good - the carpet, deep recesses of chairs, tables etc could have a more thorough clean. This is completed but requires it being brought to their attention.

Activities still seem very limited - putting on a film or radio is insufficient stimulation.

More engagement with local community groups/schools etc may generate more interesting visits, concerts etc.

My husband has Alzheimers and is being cared for with great sympathy and understanding of his condition. He is always treated with respect and every effort is made to make sure he is comfortable and content. There is a lovely, caring atmosphere in the lounges and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I have every confidence that my husband is being well cared for.

I would thoroughly recommend Parklands to anyone looking to place their relative in a caring, professional and well-run environment.
The rooms are modern, clean and exceptionally well maintained and as a purpose built facility Parklands enjoys easily accessible lounges and dining rooms all on the same level which is good for the residents to be able to be free to move around on their own.
Mum has always complimented the friendliness of the staff and she is relaxed knowing she has the privacy of her own room but help on hand should she need it.
Management is open and accessible which is really reassuring whenever you have a query and are always quick to respond.
We were recommended Parklands by a care professional and I'm pleased to report they were quite right!

Staff are wonderful and greet you with cheerfulness, they can't do enough for you. Most homes you go into there is usually a smell of urine but there is no smell here, it is very fresh and comforting. We come a fair distance to see my sister in law and it was lunch time when we came but the staff and manager brought us in and made us a cup of tea and made us feel very welcome. The Parklands is close to a very high standard and my sister in law has everything she needs here.

After visiting 6 nursing home in the area, this was my first choice. On approach, the nursing home is very well maintained, especially the garden areas, which is important to my mother. The first impression was very good. I was made to feel welcome when I made my first enquiry. Staff very helpful and genuine, the home itself is very well maintained, clean and well designed.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend this home.
