Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Wheathills House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wheathills House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.564 for Wheathills House is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.564

  • 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 Wheathills House is based on 15 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 6 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.

9.6 Wheathills House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.564) from 15 Reviews

Thank you for taking the time to complete the review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

The care Dad has been given is superb. He is encouraged to be as independent as possible. The staff are all gentle and kind towards him. They make sure all his needs are met.
He is settled and happy. Nothing is too much trouble. They reassure him when he is confused.

I have visited many homes having close friends but none compare with Wheathills. The building and surrounding views are excellent. The care is faultless. The staff are so friendly and the care they provide shows to visitors and the lucky people they try to look after. The residents really love them and in return, they really love the people they are caring for. Long may it continue.

Thank you for the review, it is reassuring to know that the hard work of the entire staff team is recognised and commended, thus contributing to the overall Quality Assurance programme of the home.

When my mother was well, she enjoyed her stay and made some friends. Always asked to return but was unable to because she required nursing home care.

Thanks for taking part in the review process.

Wheathills House is a decent care home. The staff were caring and did their best. Things can always be better but the overall experience was good. Mum would have been happy to go back after a spell in hospital but needed a nursing home.

Thanks for completing the review, sorry that Mum was not well enough to return to us.

My father receives excellent care in a friendly, homely and well-kept environment at Wheathills House. The needs of residents are met with kindness and consideration and residents are encouraged by the staff to be independent as far as their individual ability and mobility allows. The staff maintain high standards of cleanliness throughout the home and in addition, the food is all freshly prepared on the premises. Fresh flowers throughout the home add to the overall ambience of this pleasant home. There are good levels of communication between staff and management, residents and their relatives.

Thank you for the review, we are pleased that Dad enjoyed his stay with us. Reviews help us as part of our ongoing Quality Control process.

My father has been in Wheathills House since December 2015. Despite our reservations about his ability to fit into a care home at 94 and a half years old, my father has settled well and regards the place as "home". He is well fed, always looks clean and presentable and his room is always clean and fresh. We are welcome at any time.

R.Whitehouse., Manager. at Wheathills House responded to this review on 23 Aug 2017:

Thanks for the review,we will continue to monitor all reviews as part of our Quality Assurance programme.

My father-in-law has been in Wheathills House since November 2015.
The level of care is superb, delivered by an excellent team who are obviously committed to what they do.
The premises are always clean, tidy and devoid of any odours that one might normally associate with some care homes.
My father-in-law's room is always spotless and very obviously maintained on a daily basis to a high standard.
The food quality is high and always well presented. My wife and I, along with other family members, have in the recent past accepted an invitation to join the residents for lunch. As well as good food, the atmosphere was happy and we were made very welcome. It was heartening to see the residents enjoy their meal and to observe the high level of care and supervision provided by the staff.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Wheathills to other families.
