Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Abafields Residential 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abafields Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.741 for Abafields Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (85 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.741

  • 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 Abafields Residential Home is based on 7 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 7 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.

9.7 Abafields Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.741) from 9 Reviews

My mum is very happy at Abafields. She has settled in well and is making friends. She thinks the staff are wonderful and can't fault the food.
I am very happy with the care my mum is receiving and the home is committed to helping residents socialise and to provide events and activities.

Very nice home. We looked at 4 homes in the area before we chose Abafields. It has a relaxed and family-like atmosphere. Toilets are exceptionally clean, I personally checked! This home is not very big and does not have this “institutional” chain care home feeling where the staff does not know the residents in all fairness I can say that management and staff are warm and caring. It has a real family atmosphere and we are happy with our choice and my nannan is happy here.

I have been a number of times over the last few months to visit a family friend. All the care home staff are very friendly and always attentive to the needs of the residents.
I have also noticed the care home has been modified over the last few months with new floors, decor and new technology. I would have no hesitation sending a relative here when the time comes.

My Uncle was placed here 6 months ago and I visit him occasionally once a month since he came here as a private resident. I can say that it was a good home in general but not perfect. There has been a change of management. At first, I was worried that it would lose its standards but 3 months after the changes happen, I can say that my concern was unfounded. The manager is caring, attentive and approachable. She simply listens. Some of the staff has also changed since then and this has been a good thing. The food and the overall care is better in my opinion. Meanwhile, on my last visit, I was surprised to see that there has been a huge new decoration activity that made care home brighter and a positively more desirable place to be. The overall atmosphere is pleasant with many smiles. Also, they got a new home pet: A pure breed puppy bulldog for residents to enjoy. His name is Ronnie. He is adorable... Thank you for the care of my uncle.

I have been visiting a dear friend at Abafields Residential Home, for approximately a year. The home has recently had a make-over and it looks and feels much more homely than previously. I have also witnessed more activities taking place for the residents and it is a pleasure to see involvement and interaction.
The staff have always been kind, helpful and friendly during my visits and an added bonus is the home's new beautiful puppy and two parrots which bring plenty of smiles to both the resident's families/friends and healthcare professionals that visit. There have been positive significant changes to the home which can only benefit our loved ones physical and mental health and well-being.

My friend stayed here for a few months and we are impressed with the new decoration that has just been completed. Everywhere looks bright, new and nice. The new manager was very accommodating and caring with high standards. Nothing was too much to ask. The food is good and the atmosphere is very positive. If you have respite or long-term needs, I recommend at least a visit to see the place yourself.

I had the opportunity to view and observe the staff in many instances when my friend was in respite care. Very caring staff and a highly capable manager makes this care home a good place. The staff has been there a very long time and there is no turnover. I like the fact that staff are like a big family and caring for the residents as a team. The manager is very kind and does not miss any details. Homemade meals are quite satisfactory with fresh ingredients.

A very clean and friendly care home. The bedrooms are spacious and airy. The staff are amazing from the manager to the domestic housekeeper, nothing is too much trouble.
I am kept informed of my dad's well being. The food is all homemade and good. The carers are kind and caring, I would recommend this home to others without hesitation.

Room (shared) large and roomy, blinds at windows (not good). Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space good. Bed electric multi position good. Central heated nice and warm. Staff mainly very good. Food could be more varied especially when only fork mashable is allowed for him. Too much scrambled eggs and jacket potato.
