Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Gracewell of Frome 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 55 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Gracewell of Frome in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 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 4.717 for Gracewell of Frome is calculated as follows: ( (480 Excellents x 5) + (158 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 651 Ratings = 4.717

  • 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 Gracewell of Frome is based on 28 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 14 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.

9.7 Gracewell of Frome has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.717) from 55 Reviews

When visiting our friend, I have always found the care home clean, welcoming, pleasant, friendly and helpful staff and with nice touches e.g. coffee area. My friend has mentioned how attentive the staff are to him ad they have popped into his room to check him, always knocking first. I have nothing but praise.

My mother has been at Gracewell Frome for over 2 1/12 years. She has been extremely well cared for both in residential and nursing units. The staff without exception have been friendly, caring and professional. Any issues that have arisen have been dealt with speedily and efficiently. The atmosphere in the home is wonderful as are the facilities. Highly recommended.

I selected Gracewell for my parents due to the professional, caring and understanding attitude displayed by all staff, and by the impressive standards of the facilities and internal fittings. I was kept informed of matters concerning my parents at all times and was actively encouraged to visit and take part and share in activities. I was always made to feel welcome during visits. Sadly my parents both passed away during the first month of residency but again, the staff were sympathetic, caring and professional in dealing with this situation.

From my very first visit to my new home, I was most impressed with the everything. It looked more like a grand 5-star hotel than a care home. All members of the staff have been very kind and have greatly helped me to settle down.

As the husband of the resident who has had an acute stroke. I chose this nursing care home for the following reasons. Firstly because the Care Quality Commission report gave all five categories inspected a grade of Good. Secondly, because two acquaintances with connections to the home recommended it and thirdly because the home had a pleasant atmosphere and more particularly the staff I met were very capable and above all caring.

My mother had to move from the care home she was in. This process can be stressful to the resident and relative who has to organise this. It is especially difficult trying to organise this over Christmas. Management and staff excelled themselves to enable this to happen and there is clear evidence of caring teamwork. My mother has settled in quickly and looks very well, happy and cared for. She particularly enjoys interacting with staff and residents and joining in activities. The care staff go the extra mile; my mother looks well groomed. Thanks, Gracewell.

I compared many homes when my wife had a stroke 4 1/2 years ago. This one was far and away superior to any other I could find in this area. The building was newly built, beautifully furnished and designed with many unexpected and desirable features, including a cinema, a hair styling shop and a ground floor coffee shop for visitors and residents. There is a very nice well-kept garden and activities for residents every day. All the staff are well trained and friendly. The carers (who are the backbone of the enterprise) are, without exception, very caring and treat my wife with the greatest of respect and preserve her dignity at all times.

Very happy with Dad's care. He is always clean and looks cared for. Staff are always very helpful and families are always welcomed. We like the cafe - downstairs has a space to go and enjoy coffee with Dad if the weather isn't great. I can't actually think of anything negative to say! Very happy with our choice!

I visit my befriending client three times a week in Gracewell and have done for around 3 1/2 years. The staff are friendly, efficient and very caring towards him. I marvel at their patience, with the responsibility they have. I would certainly trust them with any relative of mine.

Lovely welcoming entrance. I love the staff and rooms. I'm a bit disappointed that you got no discount when residents spend weeks in hospital. I know they still have the room but they are getting no care or food etc. Even 10% discount would be good.

Mum needed respite care after becoming very run down at home resulting in hospitalisation. She is 89 and found drinking and eating difficult following infections. Gracewell took over the organisation of transfer from hospital since we were due to fly abroad for a two week holiday.
They took the greatest of care of her, a lovely room, amazing staff and great food. They encouraged her to eat and drink and got her back on her feet. We were able to go away and relax knowing that she couldn't be in better hands.

I have been coming to Gracewell for 3 years every Tues to see a lady I've known for 13 years. I cannot fault the care, the staff, the rooms, there is always a friendly welcome. Right from reception to the housekeeping staff, I've got to know a few and always make sure I have a little chat whilst they are in seeing my lady. There is a coffee machine where I get a latte and use of a daily paper which I read to my lady.
The rooms are excellent, food excellent, laundry service excellent, drinks like tea, coffee, cold drinks served regularly. Yes, I would highly recommend Gracewell.

My sister has been in residence at Gracewell Frome for 4 years and 4 months now. We have always found all the staff very caring, helpful and welcoming - basically amazing. The whole place is beautifully kept, as clean as day one. There are always lots of photos and artefacts relating to the age of the residents, and there is lots going on, visits out and entertainment in-house for those who want it. There is a cinema, activity room for painting and crafts and a beautifully kept garden. Couldn't be better in our area.

From the minute that my mother and I first met the Home Admission Advisor, we knew that this was going to be the home for my mother.
The way that she showed respect and warmth towards my mother endeared us to the home.
The carers and nurses have built a lasting relationship with my mother which puts my mind completely at rest.
This fantastic nursing home is more like one big family.
My mother and I could not be happier with our choice.

I have found Gracewell of Frome to be a welcoming homely environment where the staff makes every effort to meet the individual needs of my father. Where there have been issues these have been listened to and plans made to deal with them. As a person with complex needs, the staff are aware of these and support my father whilst encouraging independence whenever possible. I feel comforted by the knowledge that he is receiving excellent care and is treated with respect and dignity. I have recommended Gracewell of Frome to others.

My father in law has dementia and has just moved into Gracewell (Frome). My wife and I have been very impressed with their professional, friendly and approachable manner.
The standard of care and understanding of his needs is very impressive. They are also very supportive as both my wife and her dad adjust to his new situation.

I was impressed with the environment and staff during an initial visit to a friend who is an established resident. On this basis, we have just placed my father who is 91 with dementia, in their care.
Throughout the stressful process, their guidance, support and understanding has been excellent. The staff are reassuring and professional in all they do. They instil confidence and I have been so grateful for their care of my father and can't thank them enough.

Gracewell of Frome is a wonderful home. The decor is clean and comfortable and homely. The opportunities for having fun and activities for the elderly are imaginative and appropriate. There is an atmosphere of calm and caring. The staff are all considerate and caring and highly committed to making the residents lives more enjoyable. They make life good for all residents despite the varied problems they may be presented with. I highly recommend this home and commend the staff.

My nan stayed for 1 month after leaving from and hospital to build her strength and confidence after a fall and breaking her wrist. The staff couldn't do enough for her and also for myself and family.

I very much enjoyed visiting my nan in such a comfortable and welcoming environment and surroundings.
But even more importantly my 18-year-old jack russell Ella Bella was in her element.

My father has been a resident at Gracewell of Frome since early May. He has Dementia and decreasing mobility at aged 96 years. I have been very impressed with the care that he has been receiving. The staff are all very kind and patient and take a lot of trouble to provide him with an appropriate care package for his needs. There are activities and entertainment that he has been able to join in and he also seems calm, relaxed and contented which is very comforting for his family.

My mother has been at Gracewell for about 6 weeks and so far it has been a very positive experience. Most importantly, the staff are caring and friendly.
There are plenty of activities and the staff take the time to sit with and talk to the residents. There is a positive staff attitude towards dementia. We like the way the home is organised into sections with up to 10 in each "wing". It means residents become familiar with a small group of people, eating and sitting together. Also, the garden is a huge asset in good weather. Having a receptionist means, as a visitor, you always get a warm welcome.

Rosetti is a wonderfully designed, beautifully clean and friendly care home. Rosetti is full of smiling, helpful staff who have all the residents individual time and dignity. The range of activities is amazing and so varied. My mum has improved so much since she has been here it makes me happy.

I can only praise the staff at Gracewell of Frome. The residents, including my mother, are well cared for, the food is good, the standards of cleanliness exceptionally high and the atmosphere welcoming. Like many people, I was worried about moving my mother into a care home but to see how settled and happy she is, without becoming institutionalised, has put my mind at rest. I would wholeheartedly recommend Gracewell of Frome to others looking for a safe and secure place for their relatives.

Gracewell's design, with small groups of rooms arranged around an easily accessible garden, makes for a feeling of home from home and the home is very much centred around the needs and desires of the residents. My late mother experienced Gracewell of Frome first as a mobile and independent resident and then later confined to bed in the nursing wing. The home is friendly and welcoming to residents and their families and the care was exemplary throughout. During the last two weeks of my mother's life, we couldn't have wished for better or more loving support from everyone at Gracewell and this significantly contributed to her comfort and peacefulness as she drifted towards the end.

My mum has lived here for just over 3 years now. She has vascular dementia with Alzheimer's and consequently, life and relationships can be a struggle. The staff are very caring and know her so well, that they can ensure that her life is a happy and comfortable one. They know her changing behaviours and the reasons for these so they can prevent difficulties arising and upsets happening. She trusts them which is extremely important. Her physical needs are well met too and the nursing care is very good.
I visited a lot of care homes before I chose Rossetti House, but there was honestly no contest and my choice was an easy one. We are always made to feel very welcome and the staff care for my wellbeing too, recognising when I am sad due to my mum's cruel condition. The support that I have received has been really important in helping me to come to terms with my mum's condition and this new chapter in her (and my) life.

The overall standard of this home is exceptionally good. The staff are fantastic and very caring, treating people with the dignity they deserve. This home feels very homely and the cleanliness is to a high standard. I would highly recommend this care provider to people and family members I know.

My father has been a resident for three years now and has settled in very well. He is fed well and I feel is now safe and cared for he has a single lovely downstairs ensuite room with french doors opening outside which will be lovely when the weather warms up. There is a cinema room where he has enjoyed watching the rugby. It is bright airy surroundings which always smells clean!

My father-in-law passed away this month after nearly 3 years of absolutely super care from Gracewell of From. The last two years, in particular, have been of ever-increasing standards. The staff are extremely caring with genuine concern and interest in the welfare of their patients. I know they absolutely adored him. His death in the home was dealt with great compassion and I will be eternally grateful with the love and dignity they gave to him in the last year of his life.

Couldn't have wished for a better home for my 88-year-old nan. Everyone was so welcoming and caring, especially one who treated us like family and made a very sad situation feel like a positive move. My nan, within 3 days said she never wants to leave and that this is now her home. The care we couldn't fault and the food is very varied and good quality. Gracewell really has thought of everything to suit everyone from the decor to the entertainment and we would thoroughly recommend this to everyone. I have my nan back.

My mother has been at Gracewell of Frome for 17 months. I cannot fault the care she has been given. All staff, nurses and careers are kind, patient and caring and are respectful to my mum.
Activities are good, lots of music, singing, which mum responds to although having dementia soon forgets but really enjoys at the time. Also loves walks along the river and into town.
Food varied, if not on the menu they will sort. Even glass of wine if wanted - think will book my place now??

You are always given warm welcome on arrival at home by reception staff.

In past have been worried about going away for holiday but feel less stressed now knowing mum is being well cared for.

The home is classed as luxury and compared to all others I have visited it certainly is, however, it's not really "luxury" it is how we should be looking after older people. The care home is very good, it still has it's staffing issues as does all the care sector but the impact on residents appears minimal. The care staff are very caring and pride themselves in the engagement with service users. I work in the care sector (Head of care and support services Age UK) and can clearly see the difference in quality of this home compared to others.

Gracewell is completely unlike any other care home I viewed for my father. It's more like going into a quite nicely appointed hotel than a care home, and the furnishings, rooms and layout all reinforce this. Excellent rooms and dining more in 'small restaurants' around the building than some vast canteen. Really quite unlike anything you'd expect and so much nicer for it. A lovely place for my father to be.

My mother has dementia and mobility problems. She was discharged from hospital into Gracewell of Frome following a couple of falls. Previous to this she was living independently both with my extensive support and with the help of external carers. She is 92. The staff at Gracewell of Frome have been very helpful, welcoming and have extensively supported both my mother and me and the transition process from hospital to residential care. She has been treated with a great deal of care, kindness and dignity. All the staff we have met have gone out of their way to help her adjust to her new life. The physical surroundings of Gracewell of Frome also make an excellent impression, it is light, welcoming, with a beautiful garden. There is a gentle 'buzz' about the place that makes for a happy and stimulating environment.

A lady at Gracewell helped us find a place for our mother, as we had been asked to move her at very short notice, the day before Christmas Eve. The staff at Gracewell are brilliant and we have seen a marked improvement in mums appearance, general health and awareness in just four weeks of being a resident there. She is happy and well and we are so glad to have found such a caring and well appointed home for her.
