Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Chyvarhas 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chyvarhas 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.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.559 for Chyvarhas is calculated as follows: ( (70 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.559

  • 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 Chyvarhas 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 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 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.

9.6 Chyvarhas has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.559) from 10 Reviews

The staff were very friendly, available, caring and kind to our mother. They always explained anything they were going to do to her and spent a lot of time encouraging her to eat and drink. They turned her regularly to avoid any sores whether sitting out dressed or lying in bed and checked whether she wanted to stay where she was or be moved. Visitors were also treated in a friendly manner and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We knew she was in good hands when we could not be there. The staff showed great sensitivity when it became apparent she was dying.

My mum has been in hospital since Christmas Eve after falling over. She had a brief return home and a stay at respite care before going back into the hospital where she became extremely restless and aggressive. She was sent to a care home in Newquay where after two falls was back in hospital and then sent to her current care home, which was a relief to the family as she has settled in well due to the care and the support the staff have given her.

Our friend entered Chyvarhas late December 2015 with dementia. Her illness has progressed so that she is unable to walk, talk, eat or recognise anyone or anything. Throughout her stay, the staff have cared for her in the nicest way - always. During our regular visits, we have been well informed by friendly staff. The care home is always warm and tidy.

I've been a regular visitor at Chyvarhas for 2 years and have noticed the staff are very caring and treat everyone with dignity and kindness. The one bedroom I have seen needs decorating. The main day room is spacious but could do with a cooling system in a heatwave.

The best carers, management, nurses I could ever wish for, for my dear mother. You did more than beyond for mum's care. Thank you for your love, professionalism, empathy, care and support. My family couldn't have got through this time as well as we did without you.

From the moment my husband moved in to Chyvarhas, I have found it to be friendly and homely. There is someone willing to help at all times. He always looks clean and tidy.
The meals are excellent - I eat here most days. When I am not here I know that he will be looked after with respect and dignity.

Overall, very satisfied with the care provided for my aunt. There were some issues with hearing aids, dentures and spectacles, but generally the care was good. In particular, the staff were always caring and compassionate, and I never witnessed anything that concerned me on many visits. I would recommend Chyvarhas.
