Reviews

9.7 Springfield House Retirement Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.738)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Springfield House 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Springfield House Retirement Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.738 for Springfield House Retirement Home is calculated as follows: ( (62 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.738

  • 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 Springfield House Retirement Home is based on 5 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 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 4.4 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.

Moving into Springfield has been a transformative experience for my mother-in-law from being in a depressed state, continually saying she did not want to be here are more, since mid-January she has taken on a new lease of life, mainly due to the wonderful staff.
Springfield, who have been so friendly and welcoming. She was made to really feel a part of the community and they treat her with such dignity and respect. She is severely incontinent, even though they often need to change all her bedding in the middle of the night, she has never sensed she is a burden.

Being from the local area, she has problems communicating with the staff and they seem to be more like friends she may have met down at the local pub. She is definitely not a "morning person" and has appreciated their flexibility with regards to waking and bed times. When she is feeling a little tired she can have a light breakfast in her room and stay there until lunchtime; similarly, if she wants to watch TV late it's not a problem. She also loves the tasty and home cooked food, rather than the institutionalised, mass produced food of other places.

My mum faces many challenges - poor mobility and incontinence. I live in New Zealand and had no idea what to expect, but when I arrived at Springfields - I was totally overwhelmed by the kind, knowledgeable staff. They really knew my mum and she loves being there. She talked about the diverse staff, yummy food and activities. She told me she never felt a loss of self-respect and confidentially asked questions.
She is a night person and likes staying up to watch TV and get up a little later in the morning. She loves the flexibility to do this.

Mum has struggled with depression, the staff at Springfield help her by empowering her to talk about her deceased husband. She is a part of the family, the community and I feel confident to go home to New Zealnd.

My Mum is a resident at Springfield House Retirement Home and in the 3 months she has been there, she has made friends, takes part in activities, is eating again and gaining a little weight and feels safe in her environment. She now sleeps for most of the night. In Mum's previous home, a large new purpose built facility, she stayed in her room all day and did not mix with other residents. She always kept her door locked and didn't sleep very much at all. Mum also lost a lot of weight. I work at Springfield House Retirement Home and confidently moved mum there knowing she would be well taken care of. It looks like I have made the correct decision as mum is beginning to thrive and has continued improvement in all areas.
