This Review Score of 8.519 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.511 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.008 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 8.519 for Barchester Cherry Blossom Manor is based on 8 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 4.511 for Barchester Cherry Blossom Manor is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 88 Ratings = 4.511

    • 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 4.008 for Barchester Cherry Blossom Manor is calculated as follows:

      1. 8 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 8 Positive Reviews = 0.800

      3. (8 Positive Reviews ÷ 77 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.208

sarah tilley, General Manager at Barchester Cherry Blossom Manor responded to this review on 30 Nov 2015:

Thank you very much. Your review is very much appreciated by the team.

My mother was at Barchester Cherry Blossom Manor from April - Aug 2015. She received excellent care and attention. Nursing staff were excellent. She was able to return to her own home due to the support that she received. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursing home to others. Family were always welcome and staff were always polite and friendly.

The care my elderly mother received whilst a resident at Cherry Blossom Manor for over two years were excellent. The staff are attentive and kind and appreciated the individual needs of the residents. Everyone from the person who served the tea and coffee, to the cleaners, the care assistants, the senior nurses and the management team were amazing. If all nursing homes could be like Cherry Blossom Manor the elderly care in the UK would be fantastic.

You don't have to worry. You are in good hands. If you have a problem, you can just ask! Medical staff frequently check up to see if you're OK. I like my room, I have a door so I can go out, I am happy. The only thing I miss is driving! The people are nice and that's the main thing.
But I do still feel like I have freedom. If there is certain foods you don't like they will make you something else. It's a good home, no doubt about that! It is better than being on my own!

The room is very equipped with towels, furniture and TV. I really enjoyed the food and there was a lot of choice.
I went to a quiz afternoon, but wish there was more going on at times.
All the staff are very friendly and when I ring my bell they come to se me straight away.

My mother was in the care home for roughly 1 month after leaving Basingstoke Hospital for Rehab purpose.The carers were brilliant with mum at 93 they got her walking with aid of her stick as well as a 4 wheel pusher,can dress herself, can get to the toilet on her own and wash herself - this is great, as she has her dignity back as this is the mum we know.
The home provided the patience and trust which mum responded to, this has given her the confidence to get around not only in my home but more importantly her own home. Thank you so much "Cherry Blossom Manor"
