9.8 Newland Hurst has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.819)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Newland Hurst 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Newland Hurst in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.819 for Newland Hurst is calculated as follows: ( (127 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.819

  • 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 Newland Hurst is based on 9 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 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 3.2 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.

My youngest sister has been a resident at Newland Hurst Trust almost since its beginning, in the late 1970s, when she was sixteen. From the start, she has been happy here, living life to the full, classes in carpentry, art of all sorts, gardening, music and drama, and animal husbandry have been skilfully woven into the fabric of the merry community life. In addition, my sister has enjoyed fruitful classes at the nearby Further Education colleges, notably computer skills, caring for pets and cooking. Now she visits a care farm every Wednesday which she relishes more than words can express.

Much has been said of care homes over the years good and not so good. Yet Newland Hurst has remained consistent with highest standards of care maintained throughout and much of this can be attributed to its voluntary status as a charity.
The management and staff whose increasing care and their willingness to go the extra mile for the residents has proved a success story.

My sister's home has been at Newland Hurst for over 20 years and she has been very happy and settled throughout this time.
The manager has initiated a number of improvements recently in the structure of the buildings and continues to maintain the very high standards of care and positive ethos of Newland Hurst.
I feel very lucky that my sister is at Newland Hurst and wish to thank all staff for their continued dedication.

Newland Hurst is clean, tidy and calm. Well furnished in a homely way, where residents live very happily with the freedom that a well managed, professional team of caring conscientious staff and a safe environment provides. Residents are treated by the staff with dignity, kindness, sensitivity and love. The food is excellent - nutritionally balanced, flavoursome, varied and plentiful. A comprehensive range of regular daily activities are provided and those, together with exciting day trips out, evening clubs and holidays etc, no one is ever bored. All these things contribute to and are reflected in the happy, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere that I experience on my weekly visits. First class.

We were apprehensive, worried and very sad that my cousin had to move from home life to a care home but we couldn't have been in better hands. Newland Hurst is in a beautiful spot, the staff second to none.
Endlessly patient, kind and always find time to talk to residents and family alike, to sort out any problems or to give reassurance.
My cousin engages in the many activities, doing things he has never done before and enjoys it all enormously. He stays with me at intervals throughout the year - but is always anxious to return to his life at N.H.
He and we are so lucky to have found such a special place with very special people who care and make life such a joy for the residents.

My brother has required a great deal of help and encouragement over the past 25 years at Newland Hurst. The staff there have always been cheerful, practical and encouraging and continue to give this excellent care. The principal has been careful to include and inform me about my brother's life at Newland and his "individual care plan" is the most professional I have ever seen.
Thank you to everyone at Newland Hurst.

The management of Newland Hurst asked my brother what was important to him, what he needs, what he would like to do. My brother felt listened to, and is excited about all the activities he is going to be involved in. He is also excited about the festival that is being planned next summer. Newland Hurst encourage residents to be involved in the community through farmers markets and volunteer work. I am very pleased with the care he is receiving at Newland Hurst.

My brother has lived at Newland Hurst for over 35years. Our mother died in 1994, so since then I have visited him on a regular basis, supported by my brothers, sister and other family members. My brother is happy and content. He is a valued member of Newland Hurst and regards it as his home. Standards have always been high, and the staff are most caring and professional. He needs and receives a lot of support. He has his own room and bathroom, which are clean and pleasantly decorated. In fact everywhere is kept beautifully. In the past he has enjoyed partaking in many activities provided by the staff and management, but now prefers a quieter life. He enjoys his meals, likes outings and attends the sacred hear church in Droitwich. Safe and secure, Newland Hurst is great value for money. Our family are delighted that he is at Newland Hurst.
