Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Heatherdene Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.889 for Heatherdene Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.889

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0.179

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

8.1 Heatherdene Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.068) from 3 Reviews

My beautiful Mum needed respite care and Heatherdene Nursing Home was where she was placed. She has Alzheimer's and after a health issue was unable to walk. The first thing you notice is the lovely fresh smell and the smiling faces of the team of nurses and caring team. Mum was well looked after, she always looked immaculate, clean, and cared for. Her room was lovely and all her clothing placed neatly in the wardrobe. You could tell just how much the team here at Heatherdene cared, by the way they spoke to residents and their well-being was always forefront of their plans. Due to some medical issues, Heatherdene made sure that they contacted the doctors and sorted the issue immediately. As a very close family, we found this home absolutely perfect, no complaints just praise. When Mum came home she was given a great send off by the team who had grown very fond of her and treated her like their own. I would never hesitate in using this home again. It really is perfect.

I continue to be impressed by the level of care provided to the residents at Heatherdene. The manager and staff have worked hard to make improvements since the last inspection in 2016 and should be proud to have received 'good' in all areas this time. The dining experience is so much better and I feel that people enjoy their food much more when sitting with others at a table. The activity coordinator has made a big difference to the entertainment provided with bingo and bowling now firm favourites with my mother in law! The manager has maintained a stable staff team which makes such a difference to the care of the residents who are able to build positive relationships with consistent staff.

My husband has now been at Heatherdene for over 2 years and it was the best choice I could have made in choosing this home. Right from the beginning he settled in and said that it was a "home away from home". This is all down to the Manger and her team. They go out of their way to ensure that my husband's needs whether medically or personal are met. Everyone is treated with extreme respect and dignity and they make the individual resident feel that they are important. Any concerns that I may have are dealt with care and compassion and resolved quickly. The atmosphere within the home itself as soon as you walk in the door is one of homely friendliness which carries on with whoever you meet. It's like being one big family. Special events such as Christmas, Easter, individual Birthdays and even Chinese New Year are celebrated with the involvement of all residents and staff. Families of the residents are always made to feel extremely welcome at all times.
