Reviews

8.1 The Old Rectory Care Home has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.083)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for The Old Rectory Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Old Rectory Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.922 for The Old Rectory Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (167 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.922

  • 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 3.161 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Old Rectory Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.2 Target = 0.161

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

My aunt has been a resident here for almost 4 years. She is extremely well cared for and is very happy. The ambience of the whole place is that of a Four star hotel with beautiful furnishings and white table linen and fresh flowers on the tables in the dining room. The food is excellent and we always have lunch with my aunt whenever we visit. The staff are brilliant...over the years we have got to know them very well and we are always made to feel very welcome. They always have time for a chat and a joke and it feels more like a large family gathering than a care home! There are plenty of opportunities for weekly outings and special events are arranged at Christmas and various other times during the year. One worth a mention is the family day set up to coincide with the Cosford Air show which includes a hog roast and a host of other goodies and is used to raise funds for the outings etc.
The Old Rectory Care Home is just excellent.....I cannot recommend it highly enough!

My brother has been a resident at The Old Rectory Care Home for 4 months. From day one, The Old Rectory Care Home staff were interested in my brother and have tried to make his stay as comfortable as possible. The staff are all very pleasant and motivated. the buildings are kept in a very good state of repair and my brother has settled in very well.

A very welcoming, clean, well-maintained home, with caring considerate, and friendly staff who put the resident's welfare first. Food is excellent, as are the varied activities. Residents are encouraged to bring personal items from home, which help them to feel more settled. Equipment for use with the elderly is excellent, and additional care ie. personal outings is also available. There is a wonderful ambience in all areas of the home, allowing a happy, peaceful and caring stay for all residents.

Mum first went into Rectory Care for a couple of weeks of respite after an illness then she decided to stay. I felt so guilty. I had to admit that I was too old to care for mum 24 hours a day. Now after seeing Mum is well looked after and cared for I thank God that she has found this wonderful place. The Manager and all the staff are so amazing. They do everything they possibly can to keep the residents happy and well cared for. It feels like home. Mum is cared for to a very high standard. Feels more like a lovely country hotel than a care home. We are always made to feel so welcome when we visit. We can visit anytime we wish. We are kept well informed, never made to feel a nuisance. Staff are well trained and polite and are dedicated and loving to Mum, always make her feel special. They have outings once a week for those able to travel. Lovely grounds to enjoy if they cant.

My brother suffered a severe stroke in march 2016 and after spending many weeks in hospital he was moved to The Old Rectory Care Home on May 18th, 2016. The family spent considerable time visiting various nursing homes in both Staffordshire and Shropshire and after receiving a number of excellent recommendations we chose The Old Rectory. The staff have been extremely caring and understanding to my brother's situation and it was a great relief to the family to see that he quickly settled to his new environment without fuss. Despite having no speech or use of his right arm or leg, he is having encouraging results.

The Old Rectory Care Home has cared for my mother age 102 since she fell at home and broke her hip 3 years ago. They have shown her great kindness and the staff always find the time to chat and joke with her, as well as looking after her every need.
We cannot speak highly enough of The Old Rectory Care Home, it really is a home from home.

My mother-in-law has been a resident at The Old Rectory Care Home for the last four years and is extremely happy and content. Her room is large, bright and very comfortable. She constantly praises the staff as very good they all take an interest in her. She is particularly fond of the food we have also as a family eaten with her, including sharing Christmas lunch. Many activities are organised and she participates fully with painting (excellent), quizzes and flower arranging etc.

Every time I visit my friend it's always the same. Spotlessly clean. Always friendly staff and the residents love it there. Great sitting in the garden on good days. Meeting other residents. Good taking my little dog too. If I ever need care in my older age I would love to be in here.

I am made very welcome as I sign in by both the receptionist and any passing nurses or carers. Mum is usually in the dining room when I arrive where all her needs - physical and dietary requirements - are met. The rooms are maintained to a very high standard where residents are able to put their personal touches to make it seem like home. Carers arrive quickly, treating mum in a sensitive and caring fashion. The manager and her family are very hands-on, ensuring a large family environment.

The manager and her staff have been a revelation to us all. My mother-in-law had spent eight months in another home which was more expensive she never felt settled or safe neither did we. The past twelve months at the rectory have been wonderful. She is happy stimulated and feels so safe and cared for. This is her home and we cannot praise it highly enough. The care is exemplary the staff are so patient and kind, nothing is too much trouble. The food is fabulous, cleaning standards excellent. The d├ęcor furnishings and grounds are what we would expect in a boutique country hotel. Thank you all we only have praise for this wonderful home.

We feel very fortunate to have such an extremely food care home, almost on our doorstep to care for my 101 year old mother-in-law. The care home is not too large to become impersonal. It is very well run by the extremely professional proprietor and her family. Mum-in-law is very contented well fed and constantly cared for. We cannot thank the excellent staff enough for their kindness and consideration that they show her.
