  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Callywhite 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 6 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 4.773 for The Callywhite Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (121 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.773

  • 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 4.769 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Callywhite Care Home is based on 6 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 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0.769

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

9.5 The Callywhite Care Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.542) from 13 Reviews

Since my mother in law became a resident, we have been very pleased with the standard of care provided. All staff members interact with residents in a positive and respectful manner. My mother in law appears well cared for and has settled well into the environment following a transition from her previous accommodation.

Have visited on numerous occasions and always find the staff & management professional, courteous, knowledgeable, & friendly.
Being greeted with a smile and always with eye contact is good. Whenever my father mentions anything to me it almost always is already known and in-hand.

Mum moved into this care home 4 months ago after some hospital admissions and distressing falls at home. At 96 she is experiencing some memory problems and general frailty. From day one the staff and facilities at Callywhite have been brilliant. From the domestics to the managers and everyone in between they could not have been more caring and welcoming. Her room is perfect - modern, comfortable and well furnished and she is treated with good humour and dignity at all times. She doesn't choose to join in the activities, preferring to remain in her room except having her hair done each week by the lovely visiting hairdresser. We are so grateful to all at Callywhite.

My sister and I selected The Callywhite for our 95-year-old mother after 2 falls and hospital admissions when she could no longer live "supported" at her own home. After reviewing a number of care homes, The Callywight was an easy unanimous choice. A modern building with delightful well-proportioned rooms, roomy ensuites, wide access corridors and pleasant and interesting views from bedrooms and accessible communal balcony. The home is well decorated, carpeted and maintained and with comfortable furniture. The management were helpful and caring and are accessible to families, dealing quickly and efficiently with matters. Although mother chooses not to participate, which she is free to do, the staff work hard to provide activities for residents on a regular basis. Food is attractive and plentiful and can be taken communally or privately.

My wife moved into Callywhite Care Home on 20th August 2017 after receiving very poor care at her previous care home. Her weight at that time was 5st 6lbs and I and my family thought she was bed bound. As at the end of November 2017, her weight is now 6st 6lbs and she is mobile and mixing with other residents. The care she is getting is excellent and my marks below truly reflect this.

Callywhite Care Home have given me the confidence to know that my wife is properly cared for.

The Callywhite has been my Mothers home for the last 12 months of her life until her passing on the 11th of March. I would like to say that the facilities in the Callywhite are second to none when compared to other homes in the area but the real reason for writing this review is to thank the staff (across all shifts) who through their professionalism and caring attitude transform the place into a true home for the residents.

I cannot thank the staff enough for the way my mum was cared for especially as her needs increased.

I think it's a lovely place, very clean and airy. Very pleasant and I'm pleased with it. I like the walkways and my husband enjoys walking through them.
Cheerful and the staff are lovely and helpful.
I'm not used to going around homes, but this is superb and I don't normally like care homes.
Lots of entertainment going on which is good for the residents.

My mother lived at the care home from September 2015 until her death in March 2017. It was truly her home; she was welcomed and looked after in a setting that had the amenities of a good hotel with the addition of 24-hour care at the touch of a button. French windows from her room gave access to a lovely secure garden where she could sit or walk when she wished. Excellent food with plenty of variety could be enjoyed in her room or with other residents in the dining room. Entertainment was arranged periodically, All-around excellent care.

The care provided by all the staff to my mother-in-law during her 18 month's stay was extremely good. They treated her with respect and dignity in a comfortable, clean and safe environment. The food was well balanced and appropriate for her individual needs. The family was well-informed and supported by members of the Callywhite Team.

I have found the staff all really helpful and patient and feel comfortable asking questions. The home itself is always clean. I have no complaints with the level of care in any way and have no worries at all. I feel I can trust all the staff from cleaners to carers and made welcome whenever I call to see my Mum who also seems settled now and also comfortable and at ease with all members of staff.
