Reviews

9.1 Long Meadow has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.135)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Long Meadow 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Long Meadow 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.

  • 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 4.885 for Long Meadow is calculated as follows: ( (85 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.885

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Long Meadow 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.

Long Meadow is a welcoming happy care home with well trained, sympathetic, very caring staff who are always approachable and communicative. My mother has been a resident for nearly 18 months and I have only ever seen her treated with care, dignity and respect. The staff interact wonderfully with her and she with them. She has a lovely room overlooking the extensive gardens and has been very happy here. There is a lovely atmosphere between staff and in the home generally. Mum is lucky to be here!

I think that Long Meadow is a brilliant care home.
The atmosphere is a very happy one, I can't praise the staff enough for the care and help they give to my cousin. They also welcome and encourage our visits. I would like to say a very big thank you to them all on behalf of all our family.

The atmosphere of Long Meadow is always loving and caring. The residents are treated as individuals with their own life stories. My mother lived there for over two years before her death this year and the kindness and professionalism of the staff were always outstanding. Long Meadow helped to make my mother's final years happy, safe and comfortable for which I will always be grateful.

My nana lived at Long Meadow for seven years. She had dementia and was cared for wonderfully by the staff. When nana was put into end of life care all the staff looked after both nana and all my family who stayed by her bedside for the last five days of her life. We could not have been made to feel more welcome and at home. I have nothing but praise for everyone at Long Meadow, it's very clear that everyone there loves their job and cares immensely about the residents.

Well I can honestly say in my opinion that this care home is one that is absolutely brilliant. The care and hospitality was 100%. My mother in law was cared for in such a way that she was able to keep her dignity in every way. I would like to say thank you to all of the staff for being so caring, on behalf of myself and my husband. Thank you for caring so much.
