Review Score: 9.5 (9.470)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Flower Park Care Home is based on 19 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.470 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.52 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.95 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 9.470 for Flower Park Care Home is based on 19 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 4.52 for Flower Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (88 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 221 Ratings = 4.52

    • 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 4.95 for Flower Park Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 19 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 19 Positive Reviews = 1.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (19 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.950

  • 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. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

From the time my dear friend was admitted to hospital with a stroke it sadly came the time he had to go into a home. I did have the choice of three homes but I was recommended to choose Flower Park.
From the time my dear friend arrived we were greeted by all the professional staff in all the hard work they do. I would definitely recommend anyone who has a loved one to visit Flower Park because the work they do is absoloutley fantastic. Yes I would recommend family and friends to stay at Flower Park if needs be. I would give Flower Park 100% for all the work the staff do.

My mother entered Flower Park in December 2015 after a long stay in hospital. From the first day, her care has been consistently excellent. The nursery and care staff are friendly and professional. They are always attentive and address any issues we may have. My mother is content, comfortable and responds well to staff. The home in general is clean and welcoming. It is currently undergoing a refurbishment and the rooms are looking really good.

I am writing this review because the team at Flower Park are incredible. My father who suffers from advanced parkinsons and early onset dementia has never been better looked after. Everytime I visit he is clean and well fed and the staff are all aware of his conditions and seem to treat him like a relative and you cannot ask for better than that.
On top of that they are always quick to inform us of any illness or concern they have about his condition which just shows how much they care about the people they look after.
I cannot recommend this home enough

My wife Sheila was in your care for over a year until her unfortunate death in March 2015. She received excellent care in your home with dignity and compassion. I used to visit her twice aday every day. Anything I asked for, help, drinks etc was provided willingly and cheerfully. Nursing staff were very caring and efficient. Staff were very caring towards my wife and myself and would regularly cheer us both up if we were a little down. They were very good at providing entertainment and special occasion times. All in all an excellent service.

My brother has been in The Flower Park care home, for eight months, in which time the staff have been very good with him. He was very difficult especially at first when he was abusive. They had so much patience with him, and now he is much better and actually seems to enjoy their company and he even laughs again. He is a different person now, and it's all thanks to the wonderful staff. I cannot thank them enough. I can say it is always a pleasure to visit the home as they try to give each person enjoyment.

I find all the carers and nurses work really well and most of the time are under staffed. They are kept clean and fed really well. My partner has been in the home for two years, and is looked after well and seems to like it. The cleaners keep the home clean.

My husband was discharged from hospital on 8/1/16 and admitted to Flower Park Nursing Home on an end of life care plan. He was made welcome from the start and continues to be made welcome. He is still struggling to be independent and has been met with a lot of patience. I have also been treated with kindness and respect.
