The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Russell Churcher Court 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Russell Churcher Court 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 4.765 for Russell Churcher Court is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.765

  • 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 Russell Churcher Court 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 8.8 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 have been to a few other care homes, where my husband has been for a short stay for respite but in my opinion, they did not reach the same standard as Russell Churcher Court. Such a lovely, homely atmosphere, no problems at all.
All the staff are so kind and I spend quite a lot of time there.

Our mother moved into Russell Churcher Court earlier this year. She is very happy there and takes full advantage of all the facilities on offer. It puts our mind at rest knowing that she is living in such a caring environment.

Lovely care home, the staff ALL of them are so kind and caring to all residents, they are so good at keeping us informed of anything Dad needs. We were concerned about him needing to move to a home for his own safety but we could not have found a better home. Dad is happy, he has his own en suite room and his own furniture.
Since moving there at the end of April Dad has got more life in him and he enjoys the activities.
Dad is so well looked after if I can't get in to see him I know he is quite safe where he is. He was unwell and had to go to hospital. I received a call as he was taken to hospital and the home and I kept each other up to date on what was happening. Dad has his dignity and respect which is very important. It is such a nice place. My daughter age 29 said she will move in after seeing the care and attention her Grampy gets. If anyone asked me I would say its the best home in Gosport.

The staff at this home have, over the last 4 years, looked after my mother who had vascular dementia. This condition became worse over time but never once did I hear a raised voice. Every member of staff worked with a smile and also treated visitors with respect and care. Their professionalism was exemplary. They made my mother's last years more comfortable and manageable and I really cannot fault them in any way.

My husband is always met with a friendly greeting. He has the same room which makes him feel secure. The home has a relaxed atmosphere offering good food, various entertainment and excellent service at all times. He always comes home in good spirits which I think is a good advert for the home.

I am very grateful that my husband is in such good hands and would not wish him to be moved anywhere else. The staff are very kind to us both. They have been quick to obtain medical help frequently as he has deteriorated in health which gives me peace of mind.

Mum has been in Russell Churcher Court Residential Home for almost eight years. After Mum suffered a breakdown, we realised that she was unsafe to go back to her home and asked social workers to recommend a home. Russell Churcher was the obvious choice. Mum has been so happy. The staff are marvellous. They are always smiling and welcoming.
