Overview

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Deansfield is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Deansfield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.9 for Deansfield is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.9

  • 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 Deansfield is based on 5 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 positive Reviews (15 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 3 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.

9.9 Deansfield has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.900) from 5 Reviews

My brother was a resident at Deansfield for several months until his death in late November. Throughout his time there he was treated with kindness consideration and love. The staff were professional and nothing was too much trouble. His care before his death was exemplary and his end was peaceful and loving. Every time we visited him it was obvious that he was happy (as much as one can be with severe dementia and kidney failure) and we were made very welcome - cups of tea and cake! I cannot recommend this home from home highly enough and I will always be grateful for their loving care of a much-loved brother.

Deansfield is set in beautiful surroundings with chickens, ducks, alpacas and goats in amongst the gardens and grounds. The home is imaginatively decorated and feels like a proper home not a "care" home. Residents are always beautifully dressed and enjoy the activities the wonderful staff arranges for them. It is a place where life is celebrated. Residents get up when they want and go to bed when they are ready. Meals are freshly prepared and tailored to individual needs where necessary. My father continues to thrive with dialysis condition and dementia because attention to detail and diet are strictly adhered to.

We took the chance and moved our mother from one care home to Deansfield. It was the best decision ever. Deansfield has everything and more. It feels like 'home' and the quirky extras make it a pleasant place to live or visit. Everything about the place is positive.

Selecting a care home for my dearly loved partner was one of the most crucial decisions I have ever had to undertake. My partner has vascular dementia and renal failure, he attends the local hospital three times and week for dialysis and has special dietary needs. It is imperative that he lives in a safe and secure, compassionate and caring, comfortable environment. Deansfield certainly meets all the criterion and so much more.

The owner and all of her staff (or should I say, team, as clearly they are) without exception, demonstrate wonderful qualities and exceptional skills in caring for my partner. Paramount to this in my view, is the emphasis they clearly place on providing for tailored individual and personal needs. Everyone at Deansfield involved in my partner's life, who is a quiet, dignified and gentle gentleman is clearly committed to their various roles in providing a caring, attentive and supportive home from home.

From my own perspective, I am always welcomed warmly and made to feel comfortable. I feel free to be involved in my partner's care and well-being which naturally is vital to me. Deansfield is a truly outstanding care home and I would not hesitate to recommend it to either my family or friends.

My mum-in-law lived at Deansfield for over 4 years. In this time she was treated with dignity and respect. This was her home and she was treated as a member of the family. We could visit at any time and were always made to feel welcome with tea and biscuits.

The staff were always lovely to my mum-in-law and she was looked after well. They always had time for conversation and listened to what she had to say. They never talked down to her and always told her what was going in if she needed help. We never felt we were going to an institution, clinic or hospital, we always felt we were going to her home.
