The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Merryfield House Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Merryfield House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.833 for Merryfield House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (269 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 318 Ratings = 4.833

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Merryfield House Nursing Home is based on 21 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). 21 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.

I spent most Wednesday afternoons from January to May 2017 supporting a gentleman with a learning disability to volunteer at the home. During this time I was so impressed with the kindness, care and patience shown by all staff to everyone – each other, the residents, visitors etc. Nothing was ever too much trouble for anyone, the home was always spotlessly clean and tidy, as were the residents. Merryfield is such a shining star in the world of care homes and so different to those we read about in the press. I have had very little experience of residential care homes and so wasn’t quite sure what to expect and as a result was pleasantly surprised by everything I witnessed during my time there.

I sincerely hope that none of my family ever have to leave their homes and spend the remainder of their days in residential care, but should this ever be the case I would have no hesitation in suggesting to them that they consider Merryfield as an option based on what I have seen there.

I couldn't be more impressed with Merryfield House. The staff are so caring and helpful and the home is always so friendly, homely and clean. My father has severe dementia but myself and my relatives have all been amazed by the improvement in his condition since coming to Merryfield. He talks a lot more and communicates better. He looks happy, healthy and content and absolutely loves the food! The staff are all so attentive to him and involve him in all the activities to stimulate him and give him interest. I am so grateful to the home that they have gotten my father to be the best that he can be despite his illness and have enabled us both to enjoy precious time together. I wouldn't want him to be anywhere else and am looking forward to better weather when we can spend some time together in the beautiful garden.

Jill Timms, Quality Assurance Manager at Merryfield House Nursing Home responded to this review on 02 May 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments, Darren, we really appreciate it. Always good to get feedback. Fran is away for a few days, so I am replying on her behalf, and I am sure she would agree. Thank you again.

I could not wish for a better home for my father-in-law. The carers, staff, food and surroundings are beyond excellent and my father-in-law is treated with dignity, love and respect and as a person rather than just a number. Despite his advanced Alzheimers, at Merryfield there is a marked improvement in his condition and they have succeeded in giving him back a quality of life and always go out of their way to involve him in activities and constantly think of ways to help him and assist him. It is such a caring, friendly place that is always welcoming and spotlessly clean with lovely homely touches. I cannot recommend it highly enough. My father-in-law is the healthiest and happiest we have seen him in a very long time. Thank you Merryfield House.

Thank you for your comments and feedback Julie. We really appreciate it. Fran is away for a few days, but I know she would be saying the same. Thank you again.

Lovely family feel, Grandad is very happy and well cared for. All the residents know one another and the staff, so the community at Merryfield House Nursing Home is very friendly and loving. I came when activities were taking place and many residents were actively taking part and enjoying the range of things available for them to take part in together - felt more like a group of friends sharing time together than a nursing home. Really excellent.

Merryfield House Nursing Home. It is small and friendly but not lacking in activities. A full activity programme is in place every week with a very friendly activity coordinator. The care is very good carers talk to the residents and give them individual time and care. The food is excellent my dad is celiac so they have had to get special food for him. The manageress is excellent and she comes around and talks to the residents and their family I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a nursing home.

I have been at Merryfield for five months. I have a very comfortable room but it is a bit small. The room has a toilet and wash basin but no shower. I get taken to the shower twice a week and showered by a carer. The food is excellent. The staff are very kind and considerate. I can walk from my room into a small garden. The home looks after our mental and physical health, by providing quizzes and scrabble club etc, and exercises to music.

This was the first of many care homes and nursing homes we visited - we liked it very much indeed. Having been the actual home of one of the weaving families of Witney, it has a homely and interesting feel - small cosy rooms and a lovely garden. The staff are friendly and smile in recognition and work happily with each other. We liked the accessibility of the managerial staff.
My husband says the food is good. We had to wait about a year before there was a vacancy. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the lounge areas are small and cosy. The garden is full of flowers and safe for residents.
I am a little concerned about the medical suppliers. Some residents have had too long to wait which reflects badly on the home.

Fran Torres, Home Manager at Merryfield House Nursing Home responded to this review on 19 Sep 2016:

Dear Mrs. Margetts. Thank you for your very kind words and your review rating us as 'excellent' overall. I am happy we had the chance to also discuss the external supplier regarding your concerns around the medical supplies. As always, if there is anything else I can do to assist, please let me know.

As a visitor, I do not see all of the home, but the ground floor common rooms (dining/lounges/garden/car park) are always in clean and tidy condition. There are no smells. The staff always seem to be very kind to the residents who are discreetly taken out and returned to my performances - no fuss, it just happens.
I regard my monthly visits very pleasant - probably helps my general well-being, being recently widowed. The residents always want to know when I shall return so that is nice.

I have been visiting her for a couple of years, and you are always made welcome and offered a cup of tea. It does not feel like a traditional "care home", more like a large extended family. The building is an old one which is part of it's charm and character, but is light and bright in spite of this. The staff are very caring, and more permanent which helps build good, lasting relationships which everyone benefits from. There are many benefits from not being in a large home, everyone can be an individual and enjoy a wide range of various activities.

This is an excellent nursing home. The residents are well cared for, the staff are kind, patient and friendly. A lot of effort goes into celebrating special events, birthdays, Christmas etc. Residents are treated as individuals and in spite of dementia or frailty, efforts are made to make them feel at home.

Although my father has not been in the home for long (3 weeks) my experience has been very good. All staff are professional and clearly understood. Everyone is friendly and very helpful. The staff are very good at encouraging Dad to attend activities at the home, making him feel more involved, which is reassuring for the family. They have made every effort to help Dad feel settled and secure. It does feel more like a home than a care home to visit, which is pleasant for family.

Thank you so much for sending me the photos of Dad. I thought the Summer party was a great success and although Dad wasn't able to join in fully we both had a very relaxed and happy afternoon together eating delicious food and sipping Pimms. He even managed a little smile for Miss Oxfordshire. Thank you to you and all the staff who care for him and for your efforts in including him in the life of Merryfield.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support and kindness which is shown to me each and every week when I visit Dad. It is very hard seeing my wonderful father gradually decline, now a mere shadow of the man he used to be. Your friendship and concern mean a great deal to me. I feel my father is a real part of the community at Merryfield and whilst he is still with us, I feel a part of that community too.

With very best wishes and thank you again.
