Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Abundant Grace Nursing Home 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abundant Grace Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.682 for Abundant Grace Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (76 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.682

  • 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 4.597 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abundant Grace Nursing Home is based on 8 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.597

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

9.3 Abundant Grace Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.279) from 9 Reviews

Every time I enter the home, I am met with a friendly greeting. It feels more like a hotel than a home for the elderly. Staff always pleasant, nothing is ever too much trouble for any of them. It's always clean. Couldn't have found a better place than this for my Dad. Thank you.

My mother suffers from advanced dementia. I visit her regularly and she is always clean, tidy and maintains a healthy weight. The staff all appear very caring and are friendly to me when I visit. My mother appears as contented and comfortable as I could hope for - realistically I don't think that I could expect a better standard of care.

Generally very happy with the care and support given, with many excellent staff at all levels. Lack of communication has been an occasional issue but new management are very proactive and helpful in resolving any problems. My dad is very happy here and that's what is important.

My mum moved into Abundant Grace in October 2014, as she has Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia. She has a large, sunny, dual-aspect room on the ground floor with an en-suite wet-room. We have been able to fit in many of her own personal possessions and furniture such as a sofa to ensure that she receives the comfort of her familiar things. Mum seems very happy and settled. The staff are so friendly and welcoming (and with us) that she is constantly having a laugh and a joke with them. There is plenty of food and drink on offer (3 cooked meals per day if desired) plus 3 visits per day from the tea trolley! There are activities available for all residents of varying abilities, including armchair exercises on Monday afternoons, arts and crafts, games, singers, Pet Pals and outings (weather permitting!). Most importantly, because staff genuinely care about the residents, Abundant Grace feels like a homely community rather than an institution.

My stepmother has been resident in Abundant Grace for over 4 years and has been well cared for with all the staff treating her with respect. She has Alzheimer's and can be difficult at times but the staff always manage to calm her down. My father was also in Abundant Grace and when alive, he and my stepmother enjoyed their time together which was definitely extended by the good care provided at the home. It is always clean and tidy with the staff friendly and knowledgeable about all the residents.

My Mum has been cared for at Abundant Grace for 4 years and she has a lovely light and airy room on the first floor. The carers and nurses are friendly, as are all the staff who are hard working and genuinely care for, not only my Mum but all the residents and visitors. The cleaners work hard to keep the home looking and smelling nice. My Mum is very happy, content and well cared for and she is treated in a dignified and respectful manner at all times. There are lots of activities that the residents can participate in with regular visits from musicians and singers, animals and birds that can be stroked, arts and crafts, baking and much more! There is a garden with mature trees and paths where you can take your relative out for some fresh air too.

Abundant Grace is a beautiful Nursing Home - really light and airy. Mum thinks her room is lovely. She enjoys watching the squirrels and birds from her window and going for walks in the garden. There are also lots of lovely activities for people to choose from.
The staff are excellent - friendly, caring and with a great sense of humour. The nursing team have been fantastic when Mum has been unwell and are always very attentive. Mum is really happy here and that means the world to us.

My grandmother was a resident at Abundant Grace for the last 2 years of her life. As a family, we found it gave her everything she needed to make her happy and ourselves happy. The care was fantastic, the staff were very attentive. I would recommend Abundant Grace.

My mother has been a resident on the dementia floor since April 2015, my father had a 6 week period of respite care on the ground floor commencing in May 2015. The staff are all very caring and are happy to assist. The home smells clean and fresh and the rooms are kept spotless. Food is excellent with a good choice available for even the fussiest of eaters. Following my fathers return home in June every one enquired about him and how he was managing which I felt was really nice.
