Current Reviews

9.7 Fairway View has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.670)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Fairway View is based on 24 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.670 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.67 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 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 9.670 for Fairway View is based on 24 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 4.67 for Fairway View is calculated as follows: ( (206 Excellents x 5) + (59 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 282 Ratings = 4.67

    • 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 5 for Fairway View is calculated as follows:

      1. 23 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 23 Positive Reviews = 2.300 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (23 Positive Reviews ÷ 41 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.122 (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). 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).

Excellent service, always clean and tidy. Very good spread of food when we came to scatter my wife's aunt's ashes and unveil her bench. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

My Mother was very happy at Fairway View. She passed away on 15-07-16. Today we have scattered her ashes in the gardens. The day has been made extra special due to the service of the staff and all the extras provided. I would like thank everyone for looking after Mum and treating her with the greatest of respect and dignity.

The care staff are always very patient with mother the food is good (I have tried it)
The only negative is as always in care homes in that clothes go missing and turn up with other patients.
In all other respects, the care home is very good.

Our father was made very welcome by the carers, he needed a lot of care when he first went into the home, but with their help and medical help he is up and about again, he is a lot happier and has people to talk to and is not sitting on his own all day. He is starting to enjoy his life again thanks to the staff, they are giving him 24 hour support, something we were not able to give him, and it has given us peace of mind, because he was falling over a lot of the time.

My sister and I are really happy with the care home and all the staff. We know our dad is looked after well and treated with respect and dignity. Everyone is kind, helpful and caring. There is good communication and kept up to date. Our dad is seen by various outside agencies e.g. doctor, chiropodist, dementia specialists and optician etc. He settled in with lots of support from everyone. He loves his room and enjoys all the meals which look delicious.

Most entertainment still upstairs, unfair on resident who likes it, she taps her feet. Staff are fantastic, cannot fault any of them. Mum has really settled well. She is really happy. My only fault is the garden area, looks very unkempt, overgrown trees. no view, need to approach the council.

The transfer from another place went well as could humanly possible. My aunts deterioration seems to have progressed but this is in no way connected with the transfer. The family are most happy with the excellent care and love which are showered on our aunt and most grateful to the staff (first at the other place and even more so at Fairway View) God bless you all.

On the whole, care is satisfactory, however there never seems to be enough staff on duty. My mother always requires the WC when I arrive and has waited long periods before staff are available to assist her. She requires a nebuliser regularly and I always have to ask for this to be administered.
Manager is inconsistent and never gets back when issues are raised. Laundry services are at times shocking, clothes return shrunk, discoloured or never return. There could be more activities to stimulate residents. The flood and kitchen staff are exceptional. The staff are a credit to the home. There seems to be a very high turnover of staff. The senior staff are great.

Everything is okay, except for one thing. My husband is a very stubborn man and refuses to let the carers. I wish there was some way to get through to him as I think he doesn't manage on his own and some help would be great.
