Reviews

7.2 Fewcott House Nursing Home has a Review Score of 7.2 (7.181)

The Review Score of 7.2 (maximum of 10) for Fewcott House Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fewcott House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.056 for Fewcott House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.056

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fewcott House Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

The staff and management are always friendly and available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your relative, and also any issues or concerns are dealt with dignity and care. It is a beautiful home, with a very well tended large garden in a very nice area of Oxfordshire.

Denisa Ciobanu, Registered Manager at Fewcott House Nursing Home responded to this review on 06 Sep 2017:

Thank you very much for the positive feedback. It is a pleasure to have your mum with us and she is greatly loved here.

My wife was diagnosed as having Alzheimer's in 2011 and has regressed considerably since that date. She suffered a fall in May this year and was taken by ambulance to hospital. The social services team there allocated her to Fewcott House once it was confirmed that no bones were broken as she does require assistance with normal functions. The staff at Fewcott House do attend to their work with compassion and assiduously. Some of the residents suffer from old manifestations of dementia but all are treated as if part of a family with care and very little recrimination.
