Reviews

9.5 Meresworth has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.515)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Meresworth is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meresworth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.515 for Meresworth is calculated as follows: ( (74 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.515

  • 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 Meresworth is based on 11 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 10.2 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.

There is generally a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in this purpose-built accommodation. The staff are committed and caring and there is a full and excellent range of activities.
Menus are varied and appetising. The home has a lovely garden which is fully accessible.
All bedrooms are en-suite and roomy, though whereas some are very light, others are overshadowed by trees and rather dark.
My experience has been that management and staff are open and communicative in discussing with families any problems that arise.

As my mother often says "If you have to go into a home this is a good one. The staff are very friendly, the room is nice, the facilities are good and I like the food." I find the staff to be very professional, kind and caring and approachable and they always make me feel welcome whenever I visit my mother. I am very pleased that we chose this home for my mother. She didn't want to go into a home but is now quite content and is well looked after.

Meresworth is an amazing care home. We can't thank the staff enough for all the help we receive with our dad. We can't believe how well dad responded to all the staff and how talkative he has become. All the guests are very happy and not once did we see any sad faces. Again the staff in whatever roll were always happy to stop and help in any way we needed. The activities are really great and helpful there is always something going on. Plenty of food that Dad enjoyed. Very clean and tidy with lovely gardens - many thanks.

Meresworth is a very welcoming, bright home with comfortable rooms and community spaces. The care is personalised to each resident, is very caring and calm, with a variety of activities available for those who wish to take part - residents are encouraged to do so. The larger day activity room organises various activities. The coffee lounge, leading onto a courtyard garden, is a very good social area with families.

D├ęcor and cleanliness are excellent.
Regular activities and decorations to keep residents aware of events of interest.
Residents are kept well groomed and dressed in own clothing.
There are drinks and snacks on hand throughout the day.
Staffing levels are fair.
The room alarms are often left ringing in the residents' sitting area and they are very loud and invasive.
Some items (possessions) have been lost but mainly a good effort is made to care for residents' possessions.
The staff are friendly and helpful, privacy and personal dignity is sometimes a bit lax.

The home has a friendly, caring atmosphere; the home is always decorated with the current celebration eg Easter, Valentines, Queen's birthday etc.
The staff know the residents well and understand their needs.
There is also good communication, staff to residents, staff to relatives.
I cannot fault the home, my mother has been a resident for 15 months and has settled well and appears to be calm and relaxed whenever I visit or occasionally relatives.
I feel she is safe and well cared for at the home.

Highly recommended The staff are very caring and work hard to maintain as good a quality of life for the residents as can be hoped for given their circumstances. The home is well managed and very clean. The manager is always looking for ways to improve. the staff are very open and friendly. My mother has been a resident for 12 months and as she has Alzheimer's both her physical and mental health has deteriorated but the home has adapted to these changes seamlessly, providing me with good support. There is a good range of activities.
