    The Review Score of 9.764 for Swallownest Care Home is based on 74 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 4.764 for Swallownest Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (666 Excellents x 5) + (206 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 872 Ratings = 4.764

      • 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 Swallownest Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 74 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 74 Positive Reviews = 7.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (74 Positive Reviews ÷ 65 Registered Beds) x 2 = 2.277 (maximum score = 1)

I am a local widow who met the residents of Swallownest Care Home at our local day centre. I realise my neighbour has moved into Swallownest Care Home after seeing her with the staff of the home at the local day centre.
I now visit my friend most weeks and she has never looked so well and is getting out and about regularly.

Our Mom was told along with all our family that she was going to have go go into a nursing home. We found this really hard to deal with as for a couple of years with help from private carers and our dad had managed to care for Mom at home, but this was taken out of our hands. We went on Swallownest site and liked what we saw, so went and visited. We were made very welcome by the Manager and staff. We talked to some of the carers who really made us feel at ease. Our Mom cant walk at all really and has Alzheimer's. All the staff really help our Mom and her care needs are second to none. It is a very special, caring home with lovely carers who made our Mom feel cared for. Also good entertainment and involve everyone.

I was having carers came into my home to look after me. I took ill and was taken into hospital. My family didn't want me to go home as they were worried about me. We discussed my options and my two sons thought it would be safer for me to live in care home. My sons looked around Swallownest care home and told me it was lovely and they would like me to live there. We talked about it and I agreed. I have settled in now and I get plenty of visitors. I have made a good friend I am visiting the local coffee morning regular.

I was trying to manage at home but was finding it very difficult. My family suggested a respite break would do me good. While I was in respite I dreaded I didn't want to go home, as I enjoyed the company and being looked after. I have lived in Swallownest for approximately 60 years so I told my family I would like to live in Swallownest Care Home. I have only been here a short while but I am loving every minute of it. I am enjoying the company and Have made a couple of nice friends. It's been lovely up to now and I feel more than happy to live the rest of my life here.

My good friend and neighbour was in and out of hospital. I used to pop in and see him most days and could see he was struggling to manage at home. My wife was cared for in Swallownest care home and the care she received was excellent I recommended Swallownest to my friend. He has now lived in Swallownest for about 18 months and is settled. I visit 3 or 4 times a week and often have lunch here. This home is brilliant and I cold not find a bad word to say about this home. My friend is in the best place possible.

The staff are excellent, caring and considerate and mom has settled in really well, which really helped us as a family as it was one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make.
So thank you Swallownest for all of your help and making mum part of your family.

I have lived in Swallownest Care Home for quite a while, I was living alone and couldn't look after myself, my daughter has bad health herself so she couldn't look after me. I am happy living here and join in all of the activities. The staff support me in my every day living, I like to try and do things for myself but if I can't manage I ask for help. I get out and about to local groups and I am looking forward to the summer so we can get out and about more or sit outside and read my book.

Mum has always been fiercely independent. Unfortunately she had a fall in July 2015 and broke her femur. She was subsequently in hospital for five months and had many complications, she was, as a result unable to stand or weight bear, pressure sore and continence problems. Due to this she was unable to return home and I had the thankless task of finding her a care home. I trailed around endless homes, but when I came into Swallownest Care Home o knew immediately that it was where I wanted mum to be. Every where was clean, happy and homely. The staff were happy and friendly and the residents all looked comfortable and spoke when you walked through the lounge area. Not forgetting the gentleman, who does his best to address all mums requests!.

My wife was in another nursing home. I wasn't happy with her care. I decided to look for another home for her. I looked around Swallownest and as soon as I walked in I thought it was ideal. My wife has lived here about five months, she is more alert and brighter and I am very very happy with her care and I feel I couldn't have picked a better place.

I had a stroke while driving, luckily I managed to pull up. I was taken to hospital. After my recovery I was sent for re-hab. At the end of my stay there I realised I would not be able to manage at home. My sisters looked around several homes, my sister chose Swallownest. They gave me feed back and told me it was the best home they had looked around and the location was central. I have lived at Swallownest for a month now. I feel settled and comfortable and get on with everyone. I now have a power chair which gives me some independence. I join in our homes activities and have visited the local day centre and coffee mornings.

I was taken to hospital, I was very ill. I went from hospital to a respite home but I did not like it. Me and my daughter decided I would be better in a permanent nursing home. My daughter came to look around Swallownest and told me it was very nice. I am now living at Swallownest and really like it here. I get on with all of the staff, they often sit and chat with me and we have a bit of a laugh. We sometimes have little sing songs in my room, oh it does lift my spirits!

My mother received end of life care in Swallownest nursing home for 10 days. All aspects of her stay there was excellent, I cant fault one thing. She was treated with respect and dignity at all times. The staff were fantastic from the cleaners, laundry, carers, nurses and management not forgetting the kitchen staff who provided excellent meals. Every member of staff always had a smile for us. When my mum passed away nothing was too much trouble for the family, the support given to us was marvellous. Swallownest was the next best thing to mum being nursed at home.

The care home provided good end of life care for my parents. One died as a resident and the other was treated with care , respect and dignity in their remaining months of life, being supported through a difficult time with health and loss of a partner. The home was also supportive to family who found the care of ailing parents hard. The staff were really good and helpful and I felt confident leaving my parents with them.

Friday we have a show which I am looking forward to.

I had 2 strokes and a heart attack, after leaving hospital I went to live with my daughter. My daughters health has recently deteriorated so she was struggling to care for me. I came to Swallownest to give my daughter a break for respite. When it was time to go home I told my daughter and the social worker that I didn't want to go home. I am very happy living here at Swallownest and am hoping to spend the rest of my life here. I feel safe here and content and have a better quality of life.

I had a fall at home which I cant remember much about. After a short stay in hospital it was decided 24 hour care would be better for me until I recovered and got my strength back. I wanted to stay at Swallownest care home because it is in my village not far from where I live. I am not used to company as I spend a lot of time on my own but I have to say it has been very nice having company around me. If I ever need respite care again I would not hesitate to come and stay here again.

I cant remember much about what happened but I was told I had a fall, I woke up in hospital. I have been in hospital a few months (6 approximately). My 2 nieces chose Swallownest for me to stay for a while to recover and gain my strength. It took me a while to settle in as I was not used to the environment, I am gradually settling in and feeling a lot better. I have no complaints and I am happy to spend my days here to recover.

After suffering two strokes and a heart attack, I needed to look for 24 hour care - I have been living with my daughter who unfortunately fell ill and had to visit hospital fro treatment most days. We found Swallownest through discussions with GPs and Social Services. I am here for respite at the moment. I have no concerns - meals are varied - I feel really safe and I would recommend this home to anyone.

The overall is the best home and we are so glad as a family that he lives here and is comfy and settled.

First impression - was very good - no "nasty smell" as others we have visited had. Rooms are clean, bright, well decorated and comfortable.
All staff we have met know the residents and their likes/dislikes and do their best to accommodate these. Menus are varied and dining room is cheery and bright.
Mum encouraged to get involved with activities and outings without being pressurized to do so and this has really helped her settle in. Not an easy thing to find a care home for a relative, but this is on e I can thoroughly recommend.

I had a fall at home during a stroke. I realised when I came home from hospital that it really wasn't safe for me to live at home on my own.

I think Swallownest Care home is marvellous. I am looked after very well and I am perfectly happy to live the rest of my life here.

Sadly had to move our father into a care home after our mum couldn't cope. However after this distressing time we had no reason to stress or worry as our father has never looked so well. He has deteriorated in mind, but in health and happiness he has improves enormously . He's never looked so well. My mother's life has improved too in health and happiness. We visit him every day/night where we are always welcomed as one big happy family.

My mother came to Swallownest following a period in hospital after breaking her hip. It was not possible for her to return home to live alone so we looked for a local care home. Swallownest is the closest to her house so she is still with the same GP practice, church, and friends are not far away. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful and know all the residents. Activities are organised and everyone is included. Family visits are always welcome and staff keep us informed.

I have been friends with Ken for over 20 years. After a slight stroke I supported Ken as much as I could. After Ken had a bad fall he ended up in hospital. At this time it was up to Ken to decide whether to live in a care home. A good friend recommended Swallownest to Ken so I came and had a look around to tell Ken what I thought. I told Ken it was very nice, I have seen a tremendous improvement in Ken since living at Swallonest.
