Reviews

5.9 Chalfont Court has a Review Score of 5.9 (5.942)

The Review Score of 5.9 (maximum of 10) for Chalfont Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chalfont Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.208 for Chalfont Court is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.208

  • 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 1.734 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chalfont Court is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.217 , then divided by 2 = 0.109

  • 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 was taken into Chalfont Court a few months before passing away on 15 June 2016. From Day One my sister and I knew we had made the right choice. Although not the most modern interior, the staff more than made up for it. From the management to the nursing and care staff, everyone was fantastic. We genuinely felt that our mother was being kept clean and presentable, fed and given every opportunity to socialise with other residents. At age 97, my mother's passing was dignified and handled with compassion. Our sincere thanks to the management and all the staff at Chalfont Court.

We are satisfied with the care my sister receives. She has some dementia but is able to respond to the stimulation offered by staff members as well as the activities the home provides. She is always well dressed, her hair is cared for and the nurses seems to understand her needs regarding medication. The food is well presented, smells good and my sisters appetite is good.
