Reviews

6.9 Old Alresford Cottage Rest Home has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.893)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Old Alresford Cottage Rest Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Old Alresford Cottage Rest Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.972 for Old Alresford Cottage Rest Home is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.972

  • 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 1.921 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Old Alresford Cottage Rest Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.341 , then divided by 2 = 0.171

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

My mother has been a resident at Old Alresford for 5 years, and she is well looked after. The staff are very caring towards her and treat her with dignity, respect and care. I would certainly recommend the home to friends and family.

I have nothing but praise to give to Arlesford care Home. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and professional at all times. The atmosphere is warm and cosy! The relationship between staff and residents is lovely. Both night and day staff work extremely well together and their skills are of a high standard. Management is very good, extremely friendly. My father is very settled and is well liked I believe. It is nice to see him interact with all the staff and other residents.

We looked at many care homes before placing my mother in care. When placing mother in a care home (the first) it seemed okay but after 2 months she wasn't happy so we continued our search. Out initial sight of the Old Alresford Cottage was very favourable and after 10 mins walkabout we felt very good about it. There is a genuine honest feel about the home and after mother has been cared for here for two and a half years they have earned our trust and friendship with the home and each carer and some residents.

My mother (now 97) came here in august 2014 after being in another home. This home is first class. The care, concern and attention given to all residents is a joy to see. The staff are full of kindness, the professional yet compassionate approach from the manager to the maintenance guys leaves me with the peace of mind that mum is in the best hands. My mum was an isolationist when she arrived, wanting to spend much of the day in her room. Encouragement and activities made her a happier person within 3 weeks. Mum is now coming to the end of her life but the palliative care here is second to none. This is a superb place.
