    The Review Score of 9.300 for Waverley Grange Care Home is based on 11 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 4.877 for Waverley Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (114 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.877

    • 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 4.423 for Waverley Grange Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 11 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 11 Positive Reviews = 1.100 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (11 Positive Reviews ÷ 52 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.423

Waverley Grange care home is excellent! I cannot praise it enough. My friend's mother sadly needed respite care at short notice and was very lucky to get a place. The staff were excellent. They went above and beyond doing everything possible to care for my friend's mother, daughter and family when they visited. Her daughter was with her daily as she sadly deteriorated over a few weeks and died in July 2016. The nurses and staff provided wonderful support physically and emotionally. They were all brilliant. They cared for my friend's mother as if she were one of their own family. It is clean modern and homely. We looked at other homes but this was the best. We knew from the start when manageress stayed late one Friday evening to show us round. She could have put us off but did not because she cares. She cares about people and loves to help them. All the staff were like this including the nurse, and the male nursing/care assistants.

My mother has been a resident in the nursing area since Sept 2015. She came in a very poorly, undernourished, scared lady having had 3 months in hospital with cancer and complications. She is unrecognizable now - she is eating healthy food and lots of it. She has responded to careful caring nursing, she is happy due to the staff who are excellent and now takes part in weekly activities. The team are to be thanked for their tireless effort to care, above the call of duty.

I stayed at Waverley Grange for two weeks for respite care/convalescence following surgery. The staff were very willing and I felt that no request was too much trouble. I did sometimes feel that nights were understaffed.

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service.

My mother died on the 30th April in Essex. After her death my father needed care and we move him from Essex to be near the family in Surrey. Waverley Grange staff have been so welcoming and supportive throughout this difficult time, they offered to help with the wake at Waverley Grange and provided a lounge for our use and great food and drinks. The day went very well and a huge thanks goes to the staff that cared for our whole family and especially dad on that day.

My husband was discharged from the hospice (Phyllis Tuckwell) to Waverley Grange at the end of last year. He died there on Feb 9th. During this time he received loving and caring help and I am more than satisfied with them. I am so thankful that he died in such a kindly peaceful place and I couldn't have wished for more. As to me I was treated just the same as he was, with love and understanding all the way through. I still go to see them, and am made to feel one of the family.

The care of my Nan

I am very grateful of the care that my Nan received whilst staying at Waverley Grange. The staff were very nice and the room/ surrounding made my Nans last 6 weeks as comfortable as I could have hoped for. I would highly recommend this nursing home to others, particularly having heard about the alternative places that were not at all appealing. I would like to say thank you to all the staff involved in looking after my Nan x

Mum was transferred five weeks ago. She suffered with pancreatic cancer since April 2014 because mum wasn't deemed to be deteriorating quickly we were asked to search for a care home. We were given three to view. All three we felt were unsuitable and we felt sad that this was what elderly people had to look forward too. Then we looked at Waverley Grange wow what a difference. A complete no brainer! Mum was said to leave the hospice as this made her feel safe, she had been a volunteer there for several years so knew many people, reluctantly she was transferred. We love it, the environment is amazing and the staff care for residents is second to none. Thank you, you have all been amazing, this place has made us all so helpful in such sad circumstances, we have felt so very welcome.

Mum has been terminally ill for some considerable time and in January was re-admitted to the hospital. Sadly, she was not able to stay there. We were given several homes to look at, and were baffled by what we saw. By chance I saw Waverley as I left the hospital and it looked so modern and inviting. I called the next morning, my sisters and I visited that day and plans were soon in place to move mum. We have been so warmly welcomed, mum has a beautiful sunny room, the whole building is like a 5* star hotel, but more than that the staff are amazing.The nursing staff are caring, thorough and truly professional. My only regret is we did not find it sooner!

This lovely home is purpose built. The rooms are well and tastefully decorated, it is easy to move about in a wheelchair or with a walking aid. The staff are so caring and patient. When I arrive, I am greeted and give tea or coffee and ordered cake and I am made to feel welcome. The facilities are modern and help both patients and staff. (I know where I shall come!)
