Reviews

9.7 Westmead Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.710)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Westmead Residential Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Westmead Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.71 for Westmead Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (182 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.71

  • 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 Westmead Residential Care Home is based on 13 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 7 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 a resident at Westmead since February 2017. She is very happy and the care of the staff is excellent. The staff are always helpful, kind and professional. Mother always tells us that the carers are all so nice to her. The carers always keep mum looking clean and smart which is important to her. The food is always varied and nicely presented.

I have been visiting my mother-in-law at Westmead for nearly a year now. I have nothing but praise for all of the staff, from the manager, the carers and everyone else who works there. The staff are always cheerful and nothing is too much trouble for them. Despite early stages of dementia, my mother-in-law is very happy there. She does not always want to be involved in group activities but has formed a very good friendship with another lady resident. In my opinion, the manager deserves a special mention.

I recommend this home to anybody who have any relatives needing to go in a home it is first class. The staff are very helpful, parking is very good. They put on music for the ones that don't watch television, they have a sing-a-long in a different room. I was there on Sunday morning they were doing a first aid course.

My friend has been in Westmead for almost 5 weeks whilst her family had a trip to Australia. The care she has received has been amazing, from receptionist, carers, kitchen staff and cleaners, they have gone above and beyond to make my friend feel wanted, safe and secure. The activities team have helped keep her entertained and encouraged her to join in. It's like having another family. I would certainly recommend Westmead to others who need either respite or residential care.

I have been visiting Westmead Residential Care Home for some 5 years now on a regular basis- normally once a week, giving communion to Catholic clients- have been 5 presently down to 2. It is a quiet friendly place, clean and with a welcoming atmosphere. Everyone seems happy about the food! Being now 78 years old I have seen some dreadful "care" homes, I feel this is the best I know, size and location is good, staff fantastic.

Dad has been in care for two months now, the care and attention he is receiving is wonderful. He is very happy in his new surroundings and this has given me a huge sense of relief also a lot of pressure has been taken from me. The staff are all very friendly and professional, knowing my dad has this level of care is great news to all concerned.

Having researched for a suitable home for my mother late in 2015 I settled on Westmead based on their performance reviews. I was also aware that many staff have been at Westmead for many years.

I have been more than happy with the facilities and staff any have no reservations about the care provided to my mother.
Her health has deteriorated quite quickly and the management and staff have managed the issues without fuss and have communicated with me as and when required.

Since being in Westmead my husband has had all possible help. Suffering from vascular dementia my husband can be bewildered but help is always at hand. My husband has quite bad back pain but this too has been helped with a doctors aid. All in all I feel content at his being where he is.
