Reviews

8.1 Summer Fields Care Home has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.129)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Summer Fields 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Summer Fields Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.679 for Summer Fields Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.679

  • 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 3.45 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Summer Fields Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.200

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

Mum has been in Summer Fields now for three and a half years, and from day one was treated with dignity and respect. Her condition has deteriorated badly in that time but her care has remained of the highest quality throughout. All staff at all levels within the home are caring, polite and respectful. I'm always greeted with a welcome and a smile. Information is always given to me in a professional manner and Mums care is always exceptional. Cleanliness standard is excellent and Mum is always fresh and clean. I can only express my gratitude to how they have looked after Mum and myself and family, it is such a relief to us that Mum is getting the best care possible.

Summer Fields is the fourth home my partner has been in since 2016. I am most pleased with this one. It is a very homely, clean and cosy home where the staff are all so very kind, caring and patient. They treat the residents with love and compassion. They have cared exceptionally well for my partner and got the doctor to him when he hasn't been well, got him to eat when they were worried about him. Also, the food is fresh and well cooked, very tasty and nutritious.

Thank you so much for your kind words towards Summer Fields Care Home.

Mum has been very well cared for here with lots of professional help. Mums room is lovely and all areas are kept very clean and tidy, food is home made and of very good quality. Mum is happy here and there are nice activities to stimulate her. As a family, we are so welcome at any time which is such a relief.

I have always been made very welcome at my visits. Staff have been very helpful, answered any questions I might have about the care and well-being of my sister. My sister is always in a happy frame of mind, and can always interact with myself or any of my other sisters and relatives who visit.

We are very pleased with the attention my sister-in-law receives, she is very happy, well looked after and we noticed how clean she is in her appearance. She has been well looked after since she has arrived here since she was diagnosed with her condition.
The owner is very good with all the residents, in particular the staff are very caring towards all the residents and we are quite happy with my sister-in-law being here as a resident.

I'm not here in the day time so I can't really comment on activities. However when I came in during the week the entertainment I have seen is very good. All the staff are excellent, very caring, concerned, eager and there is a lot of humour.
My mum is very happy and relaxed here and I am at all times made very welcome. The families of other residents I have spoken to all have a similar opinions to myself.

We are very impressed and reassured by the concern and quality of care shown to our sister who suffers from dementia. She seems as happy as her condition allows and she is very clean and comfortable in this residential care home. We particularly like the 'hands on' approach of the owner who is fully aware of all his residents and gives his caring attention readily.

Our most wonderful Mum has been a resident for just over a year now and every time my brother and myself visit we always receive an extremely warm welcome from all of the staff no matter what position they hold, from the manager to the carers both day and night staff, the cleaners, the chefs and the maintenance staff. We are always offered tea and biscuits and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Mum’s care is incredible, every little thing is attended to especially by the day and night carers. Mum is treated with dignity in a calm, helpful and professional way and her needs are looked after no matter how small and when necessary they are discreet. This allows me to have peace of mind. I have no regrets with choosing this care home and would have no hesitation in highly recommending this home for anyone looking for a home for a loved one.

My mother has just passed away after spending the last 9 months in a very caring environment. The staff are excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We could leave her there knowing she was safe and happy.
I just wish I could have persuaded her to go in earlier. Her Alzheimer's was well developed when she went, but it gave the family such peace of mind and we all enjoyed visiting and being given numerous cups of tea.
