Reviews

9.8 Barchester Wimborne Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.817)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Wimborne Care Home 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 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Wimborne Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 29 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 4.817 for Barchester Wimborne Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (320 Excellents x 5) + (54 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 382 Ratings = 4.817

  • 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 Barchester Wimborne Care Home is based on 29 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 29 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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.

My mother has been an in client at this home for the past 2 years plus. I cannot recommend this home and Barchester Care enough.
The kindness and care given to my mother as an individual has been excellent.
They will do anything for her at any time of the day.
Two members of staff in particular are absolutely marvellous to my mother particularly when she is difficult.
I would be extremely upset if I had to remove my mother from Wimborne.

The team at Wimbourne took superb care of my stepmother, from her early stage Alzheimers disease, up to the end of life, a period of two years.
The level of caring offered to her was excellent, universally through the full Wimbourne team. They have my heartfelt thanks and those of the whole family for their loving care given.

My mother has been a resident here for 3 years and is now 106 years old.
She has always been treated with kindness and dignity and the staff enjoy looking after her.
She is no longer mobile and staff are always popping in and out of her room to check her.
She always eats her food that is carefully prepared for her and has to be fed.
I visited many care homes and chose very carefully and have not been disappointed.
All the staff are very kind and appear to enjoy looking after her.
I am so lucky and so is she!

Hazel, Your mum is an absolute delight to care for and thank you for the wonderful comments.

It is a relief to know that my relative is being well looked after by caring and considerate staff. She first moved into the home three years ago at the fine age of 103. The fact that she is still with us now 106 is a testimony to the excellent care she has received from everybody at the home.

Martin, Your Mother in Law is simply charming and thank you so much for the lovely comments. The door is always open for a chat.

The overall care my mother has received over the past three years has been of an excellent standard. The staff are kind and considerate and will listen to her and talk to her whenever possible. The food is of an excellent variety and she looks forward to meal times. The décor is updated on a regular basis and the home is always welcoming. My mother is very happy at Wimborne.

It was a pleasure to meet and have you stay at Wimborne. You are always welcome to come back.

My mother has been a resident at Wimborne Care Home for about 7 months now after being at another care home in Chichester for six years. Wimborne Care Home exceeds our expectations. The décor is wonderful, bright and cheery. The carers are absolutely wonderful and caring is not enough to describe them; they are so loving to my mother. I put all this down to the manager. She runs the care home brilliantly and has such a professional attitude as well as a caring nature.

I visited many care homes before we brought mum to Wimborne Care Home. I must say I was most impressed with it here.
The staff have been so caring and kind to my mum especially recently when she was quite poorly and admitted to hospital she spent three weeks in bed in hospital came back to Wimborne and the next day I was so impressed to find her up washed and sat in her chair. Mum loves all the staff even though she gets grumpy at times. I couldn't wish for better care for mum as I know how hard it must be sometimes for the staff but they never show anything but kindness and to top it all the food is excellent.

Most of the time I'm very happy here just sad at times as I can't do what I used to be able to. I find all the girls (staff) kind and helpful and caring! The food is very good and I enjoy my dinners although I don't want to eat much, my family and friends are always made welcome, and can eat with me whenever they like. I like to sit at the window and watch the birds and listen to my music. I know if I want anything I just have to call one of the staff.

My Mother has lived here for 6 years and has been settled and happy in that time. The members of staff are warm and caring and her needs now exceed those normally expected from a residential care home. The staff have accommodated the changes in her condition following a seriously debilitating stroke and in a number of serious illnesses. We are very pleased with the standard of care.

My mother spent three years at Wimborne and was so happy. She called it "home" and it was her home. I myself came from Brighton and as much as it is a difficult journey I was never able to find a home on the same high standard of care. I myself run a house and am very impressed by the level of care and all the carers and the care they give and how they are with residents. I highly recommend Wimborne.

Wimborne is a bright, happy and homely place. It is like a home from home. My mother is happy here and enjoys the food very much.

I loved this home the moment I walked in, it feels like someone's own home and not at all like an institution. The staff know their residents really well and are committed to making them feel like individuals with stories to tell and personalities to preserve. It's bright, airy and cleverly laid out to give all rooms a view onto patios or gardens. The general manager and the administrator are simply shining, warm caring and fun!

I looked at several "Homes " before I came across Wimborne it ticked all the boxes and was the only home viewed by my mother that she was enthusiastic about. It was a huge step after living on her own for many years, it took a while to settle but she is now enjoying it. Wimborne has a homely feel to it and is all on one level, the management and staff go out of their way to make it. The food is excellent and all cooked from fresh, there is also an activities programme throughout the week. The staff are always cheerful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble to make the residents comfortable.
