This Review Score of 9.701 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.701 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 (including Restricted Publication) 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 9.701 for Chatterwood Nursing Home is based on 17 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 4.701 for Chatterwood Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 197 Ratings = 4.701

      • 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 Chatterwood Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 17 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 17 Positive Reviews = 1.700 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (17 Positive Reviews ÷ 24 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.417 (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).

  • 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.

An extensive search was carried out before choosing the above home almost two years ago. I have never had any reason to regret that decision on where to place my wife as a resident. The management and staff are all very caring and I have no worries that she will always be cared for and looked after correctly.

The care given to my father since he became a resident in Chatterwood last July has consistently been top rate. The senior management of the home set very high standards of care and treatment which is reflected through the attitudes and approach of all the care staff and other support helpers. One has the feeling of entering a personal home rather than any institution which goes a long way to setting the tone. I feel I have been very fortunate in finding such a nice home for my father and know he is being cared for to a very high standard.

Chatterwood is a homely nursing home and the residents/service user are well cared for and in particular my auntie who has been living there for approx 2 and a half years. The staff are friendly and always able to help. There are lots of varied activities to stimulate and entertain the residents. With the help and kindness of the staff my auntie has been helped through a difficult year after the loss of her husband (also a resident). I could not wish a better place for my auntie to live.

I and my sister have been extremely happy with the care that mum has received from the manager and her staff. They genuinely love mum as she is always smiling. She came to Chatterwood having had a really bad time at her previous care home, and to see her now communicating and interacting with the family (albeit with limited vocabulary) is something we thought we had lost forever. We cannot thank nor praise the staff at Chatterwood highly enough for their kindness, care and devotion to mum's care.

I have found wonderful care in every thing these carers do, not just for my mother but each and everyone of the adults here, both men and women. My mother was a very dependant lady and didn't want to go into any home what ever was said, but after my father past away it was the only option. To see her now so happy it is the best thing ever. I travel from Reading once a week and visit sometimes twice no matter what day it is. My mum is so happy very clean and well fed, I cannot fault this place at all and would recommend anyone.

Since my mother has resided at Chatterwood, she has been happy, well fed and both clean and tidy. I can't speak highly enough, especially as she didn't want to leave her home, which was proving impossible for her.
The change has been amazing.

My mother has been a resident of Chatterwood since a massive stroke in August 2012, when she spent 3 months in hospital. I cannot fault the care; in all this time I have yet to hear a cross, unkind, or impatient word from anyone.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
She does not get out of bed, and she has yet to have a bedsore: a testimony in itself.

My mother has received excellent care at Chatterwood. She was expertly and sympathetically nursed through a chest infection during the winter and attention is always paid to her serious heart condition. The staff are friendly and cheerful and the management accessible. The nursing home is spotless and run most efficiently.

My wife was a resident till her death. She was a referral from the NHS. She was treated no different to anyone else. The home is superb. The staff are 1st class thoughtful and very caring as was the matron. She could not have been better looked after. The food was varied, good and plentiful. Activities were regular and varied.

My mother spent that last 2 months of her life at Chatterwood and, unfortunately, she wasn't particularly aware of her time there. However, I was. Mum had come from a care home and the contrast could not have been greater. From the moment I walked in I knew that Chatterwood was what we all needed. It was a huge relief.

Mums care was everything that we could have hoped for and the dignity with which she was treated and the time that the staff with her took was excellent. One hears of the challenges presented to people who run nursing homes between care and cost. Chatterwood have found a way to navigate this superbly.

I came to realise that care of the resident is only part of what they do. At what is a very difficult time, the families get excellent support from the staff too. The importance of this cannot be underestimated. I can’t name individuals but Chatterwoods manager comes in for particular praise. She even took the time to attend my mother’s funeral which I found particularly touching.

In the last few days of mums time, Chatterwood become a second home to me and my family and, although it was a horrible time, strangely I look back at the time I spent at Chatterwood with fondness.

The home has a homely feel, comfortable and not clinical. All the staff have time for residents and visitors and are very friendly. The home is always clean and smells good. The meals are what would be eaten in your own home and alternatives are always available. Activities include all who want to take part, flower arranging, cake icing, jewellery making, games, music of all types, outings to the seaside, garden centre, town etc. I have recommended this home to friends.
