The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Fulford Care and Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fulford Care and 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 3 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 4.293 for Fulford Care and Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 58 Ratings = 4.293

  • 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 3.703 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fulford Care and Nursing Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.203

  • 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 are very approachable and friendly towards residents and visitors. They cater for individual needs and activity coordinators take time with residents in group activities and on an individual basis.
It is very difficult for people to give up their own homes and move to a nursing home, but Fulford have made this transition as easy as possible.

Mum was in Fulford Care home for 5 weeks. The staff are very kind and helpful. I would like to say the care worker was brilliant, very attentive to Mum and helpful to me when I needed to understand the personal care side of things (as mum has just recently become incontinent). The lady in the office was particularly welcoming and helpful, setting up a nurse to visit mum when she was back home. Thank you.

My mum enjoyed her time at Summerlea whilst recovering from hospital. In her time there, she made a recovery to enable to return to her own home. She was well looked after with all the staff being supportive and encouraging. She enjoyed the meals, company and entertainment. Since she has left, she speaks very well of Summerlea and would like to return!

I have found every aspect of my visits to Summerlea and of my brother's care to be very good. The staff are always friendly and helpful. All my brother's needs are attended to as well as his basic daily requirements help with his limited mobility and individual preparation of meals any medical problems is dealt with immediately and contact with or visit from his own doctor made if necessary. The home is always clean and comfortable and the staff are capable and caring. Above all, I feel it is safe and very satisfactory environment.
