The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for New Meppershall Care Home incorporating ABI Service 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for New Meppershall Care Home incorporating ABI Service in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 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 4.75 for New Meppershall Care Home incorporating ABI Service is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 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 3.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for New Meppershall Care Home incorporating ABI Service 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.135

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

My mother spent 8 nights respite care at Meppershall, at short notice. Pre-stay assessment at home and all comms were excellent, even more impressive given such short notice! Upon arrival of the home, we were greeted by the manager of the dementia unit and immediately put at ease. Escorted upstairs via lift and my mother and myself offered refreshments and tour of room. Met other staff and residents.
On each visit the staff to resident ratio was high and staff were always engaged with residents in activities. All areas were spotlessly clean and snacks always placed around.
Security levels very high. Staff all extremely friendly. Meppershall Home is more for longer term residents and my experience of my mother's short stay would lend me to recommend to anybody.

Very impressed with the staff and home. My mother was very poorly in care, but I found staff very professional, caring and vigilant. When my Mum was in pain, the staff were quick to arrange a doctor and in one case hospital check. She had nice, roomy accommodation and 'loved the sunny' lounge and balcony as well as the mess room. She wasn't eating much but food seemed good, staff were gently coaxing her to drink little and often.
When she passed, carers and management were excellent, they couldn't do enough and though they were always professional some were genuinely upset at Mum's passing. My experience - comfortable, secure, well-run facility, with some excellent, professional, genuinely caring staff.

My mother became a resident at the New Mappershall care home in March 2015. After visiting homes to decide where she should go I was overjoyed to find this home which is modern, clean and so well equipped to care for its residents. Since moving in I have had complete piece of mind (given that I live a long way away and I am the only relative) that my mother receives the best possible care. The staff are friendly, well qualified and can't do enough to help the patients. In addition they extend the same care and professionalism to us as relatives. Cant recommend this home highly enough. A genuine gem!
