9.6 Meadowside has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.567)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Meadowside is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meadowside in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.567 for Meadowside is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.567

  • 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 Meadowside is based on 5 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 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 2.4 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.

I am unable to visit very often but whenever I am at the home the atmosphere is calm, clean and caring. So many of the needs of my aunt are met - having her nails painted is a real treat at 90. Communication by email, text and telephone are all available to contact the management and are answered promptly.

Meadowside is a lovely owner managed care home easily accessible on the Eastern side of Marlow. The staff are excellent and the general atmosphere at the home is most friendly, whilst maintaining a high standard of professional care and attention to detail. My mother was resident at Meadowside for nearly three years and was always treated with much respect and dignity. She was always very happy during her period of occupancy. Highly recommended.

This is a small centre with dedicated staff creating a family atmosphere. My mother was able to live the last year of her life with dignity and in comfort with all her needs catered for. Family and friends were able to visit and made to feel welcome. When necessary I was able to speak to management. Conversely, I was consulted by management and staff regarding important issues relating to my mother’s care. When visiting I was made to feel part of the community.
I was struck by the professionalism and expertise of staff and how content the members of staff were.
When issues arose the staff dealt with them in a calm and professional manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending Meadowside as an excellent Care Home.

As we approach the twilight of our lives, living becomes more of a chore. Friends and family are helpful but they all lead busy lives. They may not have what you need the most, time to give you a sense of belonging. In this desert of isolation, there is an oasis of calm, affection and tranquillity which helped this lonely soul find stability. It was found in the ambience of Meadowside , a home in every sense of the word. A large and pleasant house set in its own grounds on the outskirts of Marlow, a large and airy room is for you to make your own. Staff who will engender a family atmosphere but will entertain you as a guest. Come and join the "the family" you will not regret it,
I didn't!

Meadowside provides care in the true sense of the word. Every person we had the pleasure to meet treated my mother with respect, love, care and kindness - and us too. This is a positive, happy and uplifting place. We could not recommend it highly enough.
