Reviews

4.7 Farthings Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 4.7 (4.708)

The Review Score of 4.7 (maximum of 10) for Farthings 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Farthings Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.708 for Farthings Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Farthings Residential Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 3.4 positive Reviews (17 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 3.4 Target = 0

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

This is a lovely rural home with a large airy sitting room looking over the courtyard garden. The food is home cooked, the rooms are clean, spacious and modern but it is the level of care from the outstanding staff which really makes this home special. They looked after my mum for two years always treating her with complete respect, dignity, exceptional kindness and good humour. They went out of their way to get her special equipment and facilities that made her life more comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Every resident is treated as an individual and their well being is of paramount importance. I cannot thank them enough for what they did and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend this home to others.

Sally Brand, Manager at Farthings Residential Care Home responded to this review on 16 Oct 2015:

Thank-you for your exceptionally kind words, Maggie. Every Farthings resident and their family for that matter, joins our extended family the moment they walk in the door. I can honestly say that your Mum has been a special addition and is talked of often. None of us can watch "Strictly come dancing" without thinking of her! Best wishes to you and your family. Please do call in and see us!

The carehome is very homely, the staff are very attentive, caring and treat the residents as they would their own family.
My sister was treated with respect, dignity, encouraged to maintain as much independence as able and given as much privacy as she wanted.
The meals are excellent, nutritionally balanced and and the choice very good.
The home has an activities organiser who organises activities for the residents, they also have people come in for entertainment.

The staff went out of their way to cater for my sister's needs and as a former hospital social worker who has visited many care homes, it is one of the friendliest I have been in.

The Manager is very professional, caring and empathetic and went above and beyond to ensure my sister had all the help she needed from other agencies and peoples.

I would certainly recommend this home.
