Current Reviews

9.9 Whitehouse has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.875)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Whitehouse is based on 22 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.875 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.875 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.875 for Whitehouse is based on 22 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.875 for Whitehouse is calculated as follows: ( (231 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 263 Ratings = 4.875

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Whitehouse is calculated as follows:

      1. 22 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 22 Positive Reviews = 2.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (22 Positive Reviews ÷ 33 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.333 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews.

The family of my dear father, cannot praise the manager, duty manager and numerous members of excellent carers enough.
After moving to a much larger room my dad has settled in much better. One thing is the family have had to ensure that they contact us if he has any falls at anytime of the day/night. Needs decorating to freshen up.

Whitehouse management and staff are highly qualified, hard working and extremely kind to each resident. As soon as you walk through the front door there is a "buzz"! Every resident matters which reflects in the enthusiasm of the staff. Home is well decorated with appropriate pictures/drawings on the walls. My mother is always talking about one or the other, certainly stimulates her. Activities programme is very varied and fun!

My dad has been at The Whitehouse a while now and I must say things have improved a lot, a lot of things have changed (for the better) my dad always seems very happy and content. I can't visit much due to my location but I know he is safe.
I quite often speak to my dad on the phone, he always tells me what's going on. I visited in May and he was at his best, the staff were all lovely, everywhere was clean and tidy, and they are speaking about getting the garden expanded which will be great. Thank you to you all.

My mum has been at The Whitehouse for many months now, now I have got a clearer picture I would like to leave a review. I was very nervous about my mum going into a home, but I must say The Whitehouse staff and management have really made the move so easy. The care, well from what I witness, you can't fault, so caring and respecting.
Secondly management are very approachable, nothing is too much trouble, always go over and beyond. I am very happy that my mum is settled and treated well. No issues.

I have lived at the Whitehouse for a long time now. I really like it here, I have a few friends here but my main friend had her 100th birthday here a few weeks ago, we all had a lovely day. The staff always help me if I need help and the lounges are beautiful. We have a good variety of food but I enjoy my puddings.

I have recently lost my lovely dad and my mum is at the Whitehouse. They have A plus staff and they are always willing to listen. The staff have helped me and it was my fathers funeral and a member of staff accompanied mum to the funeral and considering she didn't know anybody she became one of us, it is difficult to explain how good she really was. Cannot fault the Whitehouse and they are very approachable and very caring. I am happy with mums bedroom and please she ishere.

I visited my friend in the White House a number of weeks ago and there was a 100th birthday party going on the same day, the staff ensured that all the other people were involved in the day the staff at the white house had gone over and beyond to decorate the lounge and got entertainment, there was also a buffet on for the day for everyone including us visitors the staff was dancing with the people to ensure that they was having a good day and getting involved. It was so nice to see I'm so glad my friend is here I know I can go home and relax and my friend is safe but most importantly happy she has made some friends there which also helps, massive thank you to all staff and management for everything you do.

My wife has been in the Whitehouse for about 6 months now as I could not cope any more. I have found the staff to be most kind with her and they go over and above to make her happy.
I really do not know what I would do without the home. I now have a life again and visit as often as I wish, she is settled now, not distraught and content, this makes me at peace with myself.
The home is very homely and clean and all are approachable. I like that they have a family get together once a month with a meeting and I can take part in it and be a part of the home. I can still have a big say in my views. Thank you.
