Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Cyder Barn Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.542 for The Cyder Barn Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.542

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Cyder Barn Ltd is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500

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

8.8 The Cyder Barn Ltd has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.792) from 4 Reviews

My Mother became too poorly to live on her own in her flat so going into a care home was very much forced upon us. She had a little dog that was her life so we knew finding a place that they both could stay wouldn’t be easy. However, the first place we found mum lasted a couple days ... it was so an “old people’s home“, lines of rooms and everyone sat in a big circle in one room doing nothing.
She was taken into hospital re a flare-up of her condition and swore she was never going back.
This put a lot of pressure on us as a family. My son and I went to visit The Cyder Barn. The guy who gave us a tour was a very caring senior at the Home. My son and I got the same vibe from him and the Home. They were both very individual based. Cared for the residents like they were their own family.
The room we were shown was just right for mum and her little dog. It was bright and airy with a door that went out onto a patio.
The day she moved in the smile on her face said it all.

My grandmother has been resident since Sept 17 after a particularly harrowing year of ill health. I cannot stress the sense of relief and comfort I feel daily knowing that she is safe and happy in the home. The staff - from senior management and carers to those responsible for activities - are simply superb. They are attentive to my grandmother's needs, providing reassurance and support through her anxieties and illnesses. Staff make me and other family members feel extremely welcome when visiting or calling the home. They are friendly, and clearly take the time to engage with my grandmother; to talk to her about her day, and to encourage her to participate in activities in addition to supporting her hygiene and medical needs. Management and senior carers are entirely approachable and professional and demonstrably work hard to ensure The Barn feels warm and welcoming where other homes can feel clinical or stifling. We're lucky to have found The Barn and I can't thank them enough.
