Reviews

9.6 Sherwood House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.622)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Sherwood House 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sherwood House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.872 for Sherwood House is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.872

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sherwood House 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 1.000

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

To entrust a loved one into the hands of others is arguably one of the most significant and difficult decisions that a son has to make and it is therefore, vital to have confidence in the information on which such a decision is based.

There are, of course, many factors to take into account, such as the location of the home and the setting; and of course (crucially) the quality of care.

I continue to be overwhelmed by the constant kindness and compassion of the Staff at Sherwood House. Nothing appears to be too much trouble and this, in addition to their friendliness and genuine warmth, is a credit to them all.

Consequently, every time I say goodbye to my mother at the end of a visit, I am able to drive away in the certain knowledge that she is safe, secure, treated with dignity and respect and she is extremely content; and that for me is absolutely priceless.

I cannot praise Sherwood House enough.

My 90 yr old mother was admitted to Sherwood House in January of this year. None of us knew at that time how seriously ill she was, her GP subsequently informed us that she might only have a matter of weeks to live. Thanks to the dedication, care and love she received from all the staff, day and night, she has now recovered. I will never forget their kindness. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and thoroughly well-trained thanks to the professionalism of the manager. The home itself is a delightful place, spotlessly clean, set in landscaped gardens with excellent home-cooked meals. It is such a relief to know that mum is in such a safe and caring environment, I honestly hope that I myself will be lucky enough to live there when my time comes!

I looked at many homes before choosing Sherwood House for my mother. Others may have had more activities and support staff but were frenetic. Sherwood House was calm, quiet, clean and welcoming.
On her arrival from the hospital, she loved the setting and the room was amazed at how kind the staff were and felt if she had to be in a home, she couldn't do better than here. As a family, we feel she is with people who care, listen and act.
It may not be HER home but everyone helps make it feel as similar as possible - we could not ask for more.
If you are thinking of Sherwood House for your relative, go and visit, meet the staff and ask other residents/relatives for their view. I doubt you will be disappointed.

My aunt has been a resident at the home for 11 years and has just died at the age of 103.
She has received outstanding. Loving care throughout her time there.
The house is beautifully cared for and is always immaculate. All the staff, from the manager to the cooks are superb and I would recommend the home to anyone.
