Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Rush Court 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rush Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 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 4.679 for Rush Court is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.679

  • 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 4.9 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rush Court is based on 9 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.900

  • 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 Rush Court has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.579) from 13 Reviews

It gives me great solace to know that I could not have given my mother any better possible care in her old age, other than at Rush Court.
I was always greeted with a warm smile and at no time was anything too much trouble.
It truly was her 'family'. None more so than when she returned from a short spell in hospital. The care, love and devotion shown by the staff was amazing.

My mother was at Rush Court for just under 8 years and was looked after brilliantly during this time. The staff were caring and considerate and the daily activities and trips outside the home were so helpful in distracting from routine.
The gardens at Rush Court are beautiful and so well looked after and my mother particularly enjoyed a trip around them as often as weather permitted.

It is never easy decision to move one's parent into a home especially after they have been so independent but my mother settled in well and for us, it was like having an extra family as we were always made to feel so welcome on our visits.
The staff were wonderful and we could not have asked for better care.
She was treated with love and respect. The dedication and tender care shown to all residents not just by the carers and nurses but also the catering and housekeeping staff was truly reassuring and great to see.
She loved the garden there and enjoyed the many activities on offer such as flower arranging, cookery and went on some fun excursions. She was a resident for 8 years, a long time, but how lucky we were to know we had chosen such a beautiful home in an idyllic rural setting.

My mother was a resident of Rush Court for two and a half years. During the last year of her stay, she had many falls. The care home did their utmost to help her changing rooms, colour and contrast of carpets, door handles. They put a motion sensor in her room at the bed and chair so that staff knew when she was on the move so that they mitigate her falls.
She died in August 2017 following complications after a fall. Throughout the care home was excellent keeping me informed and providing aid to my mother she was in very good hands.

The whole team at Rush Court gave our step mum truly magnificent care during her stay over the past three years.
The attentiveness to her needs by all the staff at all levels and in all areas was really exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. She always looked so beautifully clean and well cared for, even in her final weeks. She grew to be very happy at Rush Court, almost always at peace and smiling. She loved the imaginative outings and events and was always reading the monthly diary to look forward to the next one. 
She loved her room in residential and later in nursing, with the views over the vineyard, and we were astonished at how her appetite grew; she so appreciated the meals and afternoon teas. 
We were always kept so well informed with patient explanations of every twist and turn of her health, and we were always made so welcome when we visited together with our dogs. We will truly miss our visits now that she has passed away.

The building and gardens are absolutely beautifully maintained, immaculate.
The choices of interior decoration stunning.
Food all home cooked, varied and good.
The few social events we attended were really excellent - even our Christmas dinner!
All staff were very pleasant and caring.
When my mother became confused and unable to make herself understood I felt the nursing staff to be reactive rather than proactive in her care.

Rush Court has provided my mother with excellent care. She has needed a high level of nursing care throughout the day and night. The staff have treated her with care, respect and compassion. Initially, my mother was reluctant to socialise and take part in activities, but with encouragement, she has been on various excursions and has responded well to the obvious care and affection shown. There is a lovely atmosphere and the inside of the building is very well maintained as are the grounds and gardens. My sister and I are extremely grateful for the care shown.

My Father spent 3 years at Rush Court. During his time there I felt the care he received was fantastic. As my Father was from a much older era the fact that the majority of the carers first language was English made settling in for him at the home a lot easier as he was hard of hearing and didn't always easily understand. The staffs caring nature towards him was exceptional and this was sometimes extended to me as well.

The grounds are beautiful and I will certainly miss visiting Rush Court.

My cousin had excellent care at all times, and nursing care over the last few months when my cousin was bedridden, was of the highest standard.
All staff helpful and a really interesting programme of events.
