Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Home Care Agency / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Home Care Agency 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 4.598 for Primary Homecare Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (74 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 254 Ratings = 4.598

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows: 3 points for the first Positive Review, 0.5 points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews ie an Home Care Agency needs 5 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 5 points.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Primary Homecare Ltd is based on 28 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.5 = 5

Communication is such an important part of what we do and knowing that this is making a difference to the people that we provide a service to makes it all worthwhile.

My wife's needs have increased markedly in recent times and Primary Homecare have responded very well.
They have been prepared to adapt and if necessary re-adapt so as to get the service right for my wife and myself.
The overall level of care is very good with some carers who are outstanding, carrying out their duties with love and always prepared to go the extra mile.

Your carer has completely changed my uncle's life. He is now eating properly (because she is there) now living in a clean home and is fully engaged when talking to him. His social skills have improved as well as his health and general well-being. I think he has a new a new lease of life and looks forward to the carer visiting on the days that she does.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. With regards to your comments, we are aware that your mother needs much encouragement on the day to day tasks and the carers prompt as much as possible but the final decision is always hers.
We appreciate that some staff have different styles of writing that are not always as easy to read as others, and we do ask staff to write as clearly as possible to avoid any confusion for other people who may wish to read the notes. At the next staff meeting, we will put this point on the agenda. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Writing as a daughter, I'm very happy with the care my mother receives. The carers are very kind and caring, in fact, I couldn't cope without them.

I have MS and heart failure, so my needs are complicated and can vary from day to day. The company has shown a lot of understanding in putting together my care package which includes transfers (wheelchair/bed/shower/chair etc), personal care and food preparation. The office staff are professional and helpful and always ready to discuss my needs. The carers are kind, willing and considerate. They are very able and always eager to learn. Their cheerfulness brightens up my day.

The carer's do a brilliant job. My mother has severe dementia, no mobility and double incontinence. They are excellent at dealing with her and are courteous and speak to her, although she very rarely communicates now. They chat with my father and will tell us if there are any problems where we may need a district nurse. Without them, my mother would be in a home.

Very good. Plenty of communication with carers. As I try to give my wife her pain killers 30-60 minutes before the carer arrives. Some indication of an ETA on Saturday mornings would be good.

I have one particular carer with whom I am very satisfied other carers are good although language skills are a problem with some. Being a strong survivor and registered disabled it is frustrating hence my poor writing skills. Depending on who answers the phone in the office it is satisfactory. My problems have been where messages I have given have not been passed on. It has been better the last couple of weeks.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We are happy to know that you are generally pleased with the care that we provide, with regards to the language barrier with some of the staff we always ask customers to report any difficulties they may have with any carers so we can find a solution. We have recently experienced a change in the office team and hope that the new members will settle in soon.

Very good, wife treated as an individual. Handled gently, everything explained to her as she is cleaned/changed/shampooed. Primary Homecare's routine of sending couples when possible provides a good teamwork scenario. The carers take their work seriously and are quick to initiate changes in treatment and equipment. Office happy to "go along" with changes. Punctuality very good.
