The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Forget me not Residential Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Forget me not Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.811 for Forget me not Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (225 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 275 Ratings = 4.811

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Forget me not Residential Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Very good experience. Mum has settled in better than the family hoped she would. The staff are all very good and we would recommend it. Mum is not that keen on mixing in the lounge, but she has engages more than we though she would. She is happy here and that makes us happy. She is very happy and loves her room looking out onto the garden.

My family and I were very upset when we were told my grandmother had to go into a care home. We phoned Forget Me Not and spoke to the manager who was very understanding and took the time to go through everything with us in great detail, the staff were all very helpful and caring, nothing seemed too much trouble.
Since my grandmother has been at Forget Me Not she has now got back that sparkle in her eye and is enjoying her final days. Therefore I will take this opportunity to say a great heart felt thank you to the manager and all the staff.

Forget Me Not is a great place. My mum has been there for about three years. I have noticed a great change in her since being there, she laughs a lot and joins in their activities, where before she came there she did not do a lot. If my mum has any concerns they have been dealt with straight away. Her room is lovely and bright and always clean. In the summer she gets to go on trips and she thoroughly enjoys them. I would recommend Forget Me Not.

Since arriving at Forget Me Not my dad has settled in and is very happy. The manager and all the staff are very happy to help. When I first came to look at the home the manager and deputy manager made us feel at home and very relaxed. The manager sat down and explained to the family in great detail everything there was to know regarding finances, contracts etc. We were very new to this and found this home to be everything we were looking for and never thought we would find. Forget Me Not is not just a care home, it has now became our dads home and our second home.
