Reviews

9.8 Overdale Christian Retirement Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.750)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Overdale Christian Retirement 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Overdale Christian Retirement Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.75 for Overdale Christian Retirement Home is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 Overdale Christian Retirement Home is based on 6 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5 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.

Excellent care home. Mum moved there in June 2014 from Peterborough. Settled in very well. Staff are very caring and kind with a low staff turnover. Visitors arrive anytime and are greeted and any news regarding care etc is given, with a cuppa and biscuit. All medical assistance is prompt. Clients are always well dressed and hair done etc. Activities provided in afternoons and day trips/pub outings organised. So relieved that I chose the right care home!

The staff are caring and nothing is too much trouble for them. They interact very well with the residents. The communication between staff is very good. They say that Overdale is the resident's home and that is how it comes across. From what I have seen the food and drink looks good. From my perspective, I am very happy (as are other members of my family) with the care that my mother receives at Overdale.

Mum has now been a resident for approaching 2 years. She originally visited on respite care whilst we were on holiday, and as her mobility was decreasing, became a permanent resident four weeks later.
She has a lovely en suite room and enjoys looking at the changing trees outside her window. She has been extremely well cared for and prompt medical attention from the local GP has meant that any illnesses have been addressed quickly.
Mum gets on very well with all the carers and residents. There has been little change to the permanent staff (always a good sign) and the agency carers are also regulars that the residents know well. It feels like we are now part of a large family.
Towards Christmas, there were lots of entertainers booked and participation in the extra activities meant Mum was much brighter in herself.
I'd like to thank all the staff, who work tirelessly in what can, at times, be very challenging circumstances.

I find Overdale a lovely caring home where all the staff are caring and compassionate. It is clean and the outside spaces also well kept. The meals are found to be enjoyable and cooked on the premises. Most rooms are now en-suite but lifting equipment is available in the main bathrooms. Entertainment and exercise are provided with plenty of books, jigsaws, scrabble, quiz time as well as T.V. A lovely safe place and a pleasure to visit.

Overdale feels like a home from the minute you arrive. The staff are friendly and caring, my mum can be challenging at times but is always dealt with in an understanding way.
Her room is always clean and staff are available at all times to keep the room clean and comfortable.
The lounges are not just 'for show' and are busy and homely. I visit other homes to see friends and relatives and none of them feel the same as Overdale.
It feels like home and that is what I want for my mother.

Overdale is a welcoming and caring home. Staff are friendly and each time I visit I'm greeted by smiling faces and usually a quick run down on how Mum has been since my last visit. The home is clean and always smells lovely (every time I visit there is someone cleaning the communal areas and bedrooms). Mum settled in very quickly to life in a care home due to the attentive nature of the carers. Being a smaller home means the carers have more time to spend chatting with the residents and getting to know their likes and dislikes. Staff genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs and appear happy whilst at work. We spent Christmas Day with Mum at the home, sharing a lovely (huge!) lunch with everyone. There are regular visits by the doctor and chiropodist. Hairdressing days are quite a social occasion. Homely touches are everywhere. Mum has been at Overdale for 5 months and I am completely satisfied with the level of care she receives from all staff, from cleaners & laundry to kitchen and carers.

Overdale has become dad's home for 17 months. It's a small home with a dedicated team of friendly and caring staff, who know my dad (and me) well. I know dad feels safe and happy there. He likes his room which has a sunny outlook and where he has his books, cd's, dvd's, paintings at hand. He often plays scrabble, uses the computer in the activities room or paints pictures in his own room. When my dad's been unwell, he's received prompt medical care and i've been kept well informed. On occassions, such as his birthday and Christmas, its been lovely to spend time at Overdale because considerate effort is put into making them a bit special. When our relatives visit from Coventry we are always offered a private space, the relatives are made very welcome and offered refreshments. It's a personable and relaxed environment.

From the first visit we were impressed with the choice of aspects at Overdale.
Clean, warm, welcoming - no stress.
Not like some we visited which were like factories and production lines. Overdale feels like a "home".

The Overdale Residential home is comparatively small and is therefore more personal with each resident. The lounge area helps to create a friendly atmosphere and activities are well organised. Doctor visits also are regular and provide confidence in health issues of residents. This home is very clean and no unpleasant smells/odours have been encountered since my aunt moved in 3 months ago.

Walking into Overdale is just like home from home. It is warm and welcoming. The staff great you with a big smile. They are always so positive and you can tell they genuinely love their work. They have endless patience with the residents. I've met so many people who have said to me that's where I want to go when I can't cope on my own. What greater recommendation can there be than that? Even a doctor has said that to me!
