Reviews

9.7 Weavers House has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.685)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Weavers House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Weavers House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.685 for Weavers House is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.685

  • 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 Weavers House is based on 13 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 1.000

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

I have been in quite a few care homes visiting older relatives and Weavers House has been the best by far.
The minute you step through the front door of Weavers the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. From the music playing softly in the background to the pleasant and clean smell. It is clear to see cleanliness and hygiene is as important as safety and well-being of the residents. Throughout the week's many activities take place, for example, Halloween in October many residents and staff were dressed up, some in just a witches hat but still this makes a difference to their lives. My uncle is so happy and content in Weavers House and this in itself means a lot.

My experience is rather limited as I only visit the care home once weekly for an hour or less.
My impression is very positive and I have found a friendly, helpful staff. The clients seem well looked after both physically and emotionally and are kept very clean and tidy.
From what I have experienced at times, the catering and food are of a high standard and the clients appear on the whole to be very happy.

Mum seems settled and content in the nursing home and despite the nature of her illness does not seem to be deteriorating. The staff treat her with care and dignity from my own observations when I visit twice weekly and always inform me if there have been any incidents.

I think Weavers care home in Cookstown is bright, airy, clean, good food, and staff are very professional. They make their job look easy (which it's not) therefore creating a very related atmosphere. My mother is very well cared for.

When I walk through the door of Weavers House it is such a different experience to any other care home I have been in. It smells good, fresh and clean (no urine smell). There is music playing in the background, all the residents are given the best possible care and attention. Residents are encouraged to join in activities daily. My brother and I attended the Easter party where there was music, making of Easter bonnets and a raffle. Food and refreshments were also general. The staff are all very caring, attentive, polite and are good listeners to all residents needs on floor two. Especially two members of staff who are exceptional in all aspects.

My wife is extremely lucky to have been placed in Weavers. The care and attention she receives is second to none. All of the staff are very attentive, patient, understanding in their day to day work.
They provide a professional service in a very friendly, open and transparent way. They have time to listen (in their busy standard). Any queries regarding clothing/health/continence are fully addressed. Their communication skills are very good. It is a very busy unit, but the atmosphere is very relaxed.
