Reviews

9.4 Barchester Springvale Court Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.383)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Springvale Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Springvale Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.383 for Barchester Springvale Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.383

  • 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 Barchester Springvale Court Care Home is based on 9 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

My father has lived in the above care home for a number of years. I feel my father does get the care that he should. Dad is settled and content normally the staff are very nice.
My father doesn't like his personal space invaded so difficult to change his clothes so this an issue which is being sorted.
We now have a key worker who dad likes and is great with him to change, shave and is also bathing him.

So impressed with all needs cared for. Has a lovely, happy vibe and management and staff are great. From the initial visit, they were so welcoming and informative. All staff are so pleasant and nothing is too much bother for them. Have seen so much improvement in my brother since his arrival, he is well cared for and likes the staff and his very pleasant room and food. He gets involved with all activities and outings and enjoys them very much, he says they are so good to him. Couldn't be in a better place.

Generally staff are lovely, however, they can be dismissive when suggestions around care are made. My grandmother is always well dressed and looks well cared for, however, it's evident, her hair isn't always brushed. Meal options are well amended to my nanas taste so she is never left hungry - cleaners could make more of an effort to have a 'general tidy round' of her room as mouldy fruit was found in the fruit bowl ready to eat.. loads of activities for my nan to get involved in.
