Reviews

8.3 Honeywood House Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.338)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Honeywood House Nursing Home 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Honeywood House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 2 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 4.688 for Honeywood House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 3.65 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Honeywood House Nursing Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 5 Target = 0.400

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

My husband has been at Honeywood for seventeen months. He has been very well cared for during that time and the staff are caring and attentive to his needs.
The care staff appear very well supported in their duties and many have been at the home for a number of years.
The grounds are beautiful and the house is always kept in an immaculate condition. The management staff are helpful and supportive.

I have known this nursing home for nearly 2 years, first for the care of my friend an elderly lady, now my friend who suffers from Parkinson's disease and dementia. I am so impressed by the individual care of each resident, the comfortable homely clean furnishing, the standard of food and menus provided, the pleasant rooms. I am also aware of the good care of staff, so that agency staff compare this very favouably. Growing old is scary but I would feel confident to reside at this place, where people seem genuinely valued and great care is taken with their dignity and right to choose.

My mother has been a resident for 2.5 years. The staff at Honeywood are very caring. The atmosphere is calm and quiet. Beautiful surroundings with lovely grounds and far reaching views. Rooms are generous and have a sense of history. Not all rooms have WC or washing facilities. The current matron is excellent and runs the home very efficiently very clean everywhere. Food is not that imaginative and can be bland. More activities needed but they are saving for a minibus most staff are very kind and friendly. Night time can feel very lonely.

Apart from periodic stays in hospital, my father spent his last year as a resident of Honeywood House Nursing Home. We could not have chosen a more loving and caring environment for hm to spend his final days. We will be forever grateful to all the staff at the home who provided substantial kindness and support during the final hours and invaluable assistance in the aftermath of his passing.
