Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Cherry Tree House 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherry Tree House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.844 for Cherry Tree House is calculated as follows: ( (247 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.844

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherry Tree House is based on 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 4 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.

9.8 Cherry Tree House has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.844) from 24 Reviews

Everyone at Cherry Tree House makes mum feel at home and I am appreciative of all that the Manager and her team do to support both mum and me. Cherry Tree House has a very homely feel, the lounge is nicely decorated and the bright pink and turquoise armchairs make it a cheery place to be. Mum enjoys the activities and is a very active resident always participating with the great team. The chef is superb and the meals are excellent and worthy of 5 stars.

Everyone at Cherry Tree House make mum feel at home. She enjoys all the activities and the food is first class. Couldn't wish for a better place. We as family are so appreciative of all that the Manager and her team do to support both mum and us.

The carers cannot do enough to help my mother and make her time there as pleasurable as possible. They are always pleasant and generous with their help. It is the nearest it can be to her living at home except knowing I am relaxed that she is in good hands.

My mother spent 4 years at Cherry Tree. The staff were always loving and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A special mention must go to the house manager
who went beyond the call of duty to make sure mum was taken care of.

My mother in law was so well looked after here. Staff were very caring and considerate. They noted when Mum may have needed a boost or additional care and they would then spend a bit more time with her which gave her a lift. I would highly recommend Cherry Tree. It was a hard decision to put Mum into care but we picked the best place.

I cannot speak highly enough of the care and professionalism my mother received during her 4 years at Cherry Trees. The staff were great and the Care Manager went above and beyond the call of duty over the last 5 difficult months whilst my Mother was unwell. Her support was greatly appreciated. Whilst my Mother was reluctant to go into care, she eventually called it home.

My father has been a resident for some 3 years and during that time our family has appreciated the homely nature of the care provided. As Dad's needs have changed, I've found the staff very willing to discuss and implement, where possible, changes to his care regime.

Very friendly atmosphere in a pleasant, not too large home. Carers try their very best, chef and food produced particularly good. Very good understanding of individual needs and a real willingness to work with relatives to try and create the right, tailored solutions for individuals in care e.g. retaining independence.

Rose May has been a resident at Cherry Tree House since November 2015 and I believe she is happy there. She is 102 so possibly at this advanced age, not many people want to live in a Care Home but she is well looked after with very good care and cleanliness. It has a lovely, homely atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. The food is excellent and she often says this to me. She doesn't really join in many activities but that has always been her way and it doesn't help that she won't wear her hearing aids so conversation is limited and often involves written notes!! Her room is somewhat small but I doubt this bothers her and she does have access to the garden where she loves to sit in the sun.
She was in a Home in London prior to here and I have had experience of several Care Homes with her sisters and other relatives and I would honestly say that CTH is the best I have come across.

Cherry Tree House has undergone two big changes this year. A change of manager early in the year, which although always unsettling, seems to have had little effect on the day to day care provided. Additional staff training has been put into place. There are now regular (monthly) meetings between relatives, residents and the manager, a relaxed time when issues, if any, can be discussed freely.
A change of ownership of the home has also taken place. I hope that the new owners keep the philosophy of this lovely home. It is a warm, friendly environment for visitors and residents.
There have also been several staff changes but the team, led by the manager and some very good team leaders, provide care of a good standard and my mother is always treated with dignity and respect. She is now unable to clearly communicate her needs but the staff are, on the whole, sensitive to her needs and are gentle and caring.
The standard of catering is especially high.

Cherry Tree is an excellent care home. Whenever I visit my aunt, there is always a nice warm welcome. The staff are all very friendly. The manager is a very lovely lady who also works with the staff in all aspects of their care. A very nice people person who cares about her residents and staff. After working in local government and visiting several care homes this one tops the lot.
