Reviews

9.1 Chesham Bois Manor has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.119)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Chesham Bois Manor is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chesham Bois Manor in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.119 for Chesham Bois Manor is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) + (6 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.119

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chesham Bois Manor is based on 10 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

Chesham Bois Manor is the perfect care home for my Mum. The Woodlands unit is ground floor and the residents have access to a pretty courtyard as well as the larger lawned gardens (accompanied). The corridor layout provides Mum with a 'circular' route for her to walk. She is always on the go, doing something in her pre-dementia days, so sitting in one of the lounges is a rarity for her. The activity coordinators plan a varied programme of crafts, singing and coffee mornings. The care staff take the time to know the residents and their visitors. The low staff turnover provides experience and a calmness that makes Mum feel safe and loved.

My mother lived in this care home - said to specialise in dementia care - for about a year before sustaining a fall and being admitted to hospital, whereupon we moved her elsewhere.
During her residence, she seemed to be well liked by the staff, many of whom were very supportive. Unfortunately, some did not seem to know how to persuade a dementia patient to perform the basics, e.g teeth brushing or hand washing and the family had to constantly remind the staff of the need to monitor these routine tasks. This was disappointing and the manager seemed unable to improve the situation, despite repeated requests.

The residents suffer from dementia. The staff treat them all with love, care and respect. They have en suite bedrooms and accommodation consisting of lounges, dining rooms and conservatory with access to a courtyard area and patio which are pleasant and welcoming. Items of interest are displayed in the corridors e.g. wedding dress, hats, scarves, dressing table with contents, piano. Activities are offered and social occasions organised.

Staff always prepared to help - but seem reactive as opposed to pro-active. Staffing levels low at times. Rooms very dark and dreary. Decor tired and needing vast improvement. Gardens always well kept.

My mother is very settled and happy at the care home. She has been there for over three years. It is a fairly small home so consequently, you get to know the staff and residents. Staff keep me informed about any problems she may have and the doctor comes round every week. They have events and activities on a regular basis. Overall very good.

My mother died on the 16th June. Although I live 150 miles away, I was kept informed all the way which allowed me and my son to visit her a couple of days before she died. I shall always appreciate this, plus being told someone was with her as she died. Prior to her death, she'd been so well looked after and I was immediately informed of every little cough, infection or fall. Plus as I have a mental health illness, this was always taken into consideration.

Chesham Bois Manor has a very friendly and homely atmosphere and is surrounded by lovely gardens. The management and carers are all so very professional and helpful, making sure each resident is given help with their own personal individual needs. They made my mother feel very welcome and were very kind and reassuring to me. All the staff working at the home are cheerful, kind and helpful to both residents and their family and friends.

I have been volunteering for 4 hours on a Tuesday morning for the past 3 months. I really enjoy it. I love the residents and spending time with them. The staff are all very caring and clearly want the best for all the residents. They show care and love to them all.

In my experience, the carers do their best and are friendly and helpful.

All I would say is that when I needed to use the wheelchair to take the resident out, the brakes didn't work, the catch to fold the handles back was broken and one of the rest catches wasn't working - so one or two new wheelchairs wouldn't go amiss.
