Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Homefield House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.57 for Homefield House is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 142 Ratings = 4.57

  • 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 Homefield House is based on 12 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

9.6 Homefield House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.570) from 12 Reviews

The staff really care for the resident and family dementia care has to be such hard work with the long hours they do. The surgery makes their job very difficult and in my relative's case, the surgery let him down at the end of his life.

My wife is well looked after, most of the staff have been very kind and caring to her especially in the last few weeks when she has been very poorly. We are very grateful to all the girls that looked after her, she could have so easily ended up in hospital. Thank you.

My mother has been well looked after at Homefield House for almost eight years now. In this time her medical needs have become more complex but these challenges have been successfully managed by staff. The nursing home and staff show compassion, care and professionalism at all times and mum continues to be well supported in a clean, safe and inclusive environment. As family members, we have been kept informed of all relevant information relating to Mum's wellbeing and our input has been sought when renewing her care plan and when considering activities she could benefit from. As a daily visitor to Homefield House, I can say with confidence that the environment is one that embraces the individual and everyone including relatives are part of a wider family who are equally valued and supported. I would not hesitate in recommending this home to others.

This care home is very welcoming, very clean and delightful to walk into. Staff are always cheerful and I have found my wife has always had the best attention one could get. I am able to visit her every day for 2 hours so I feel part of the family.

I've always found the staff to be pleasant and caring and very approachable when I've turned up unannounced. My aunt has always looked very smart and cared for.

I believe I have made the best choice for my aunt as I find it very hard to find fault with the home or staff.
