Reviews

6.8 The Hawthorns has a Review Score of 6.8 (6.844)

The Review Score of 6.8 (maximum of 10) for The Hawthorns 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Hawthorns in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.344 for The Hawthorns is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (96 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.344

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Hawthorns is based on 14 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 4.6 positive Reviews (23 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 4.6 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

My father became a resident of Hawthorns in August of this year moving from another home which had closed. From the onset, my father was far more settled and full of praise for the wonderful staff. He loves the food and I have noticed that he is always fresh and he is nicely dressed.
I cannot recommend the Hawthorns highly enough.

I have been greatly impressed with the professionalism of the management team and staff.
Impeccably clean room, attentive and friendly staff. Our mother and 23 other residents were required to leave her previous nursing home with five weeks notice after being there for over 9 years. It has been extremely comforting to know we have found a superior alternative at The Hawthorns.

We brought 12 young people to volunteer for 1 week to run activities with the residents. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff, given a room to base in, offered drinks whenever we wanted them and were managed excellently by the activities coordinator. The young people were kept entertained and never felt left out or bored. They particularly enjoyed chatting with the residents about their past and learning lots from them. The young people were also offered sweets and snacks regularly. Despite the size of our group The Hawthorns even offered for us to come back an extra day so we could fill our timetable. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable and enriching experience for both staff and the young people.

The carers work very hard. They keep the place lovely and clean, even the washing, ironing done for you. It's lovely to think you don't have to do it yourself. One thing, you don't starve in the home, plenty to eat and drink. It's a nice little home. The staff and carers look after us.

As always greeted with a friendly smile and hello from all the staff. Everything looked spotless and has a nice homely feel. We even took loads of crumpets for the residents to share. These were toasted and brought round at afternoon tea. They didn't mind toasting so many. My aunt enjoys the craft afternoons and entertainment. She seems to have settled in well and always smiles when we visit so we know she is not unhappy there. As le live quite a way away we are happy that she is well cared for.

Comfortable and caring home with good staff who are attentive to residents needs. The team were very supportive to my mother and grandmother (residents) when my gran had to have 24hr care which was very upsetting for us all. The team were very understanding and always made time for us. The home needs a little updating but makes up for this with a nice team.

My father has been a resident at The Hawthorns for 1 year and 3 months. During all of his time here the care he has received has been excellent. The staff and manager obviously care about the holistic wellbeing of the resident, they are always cheerful, keep the family informed of my fathers needs and health, treat and know my father as an individual and adjust care/meal etc. to suit my father wherever possible. The staff and manager also have a wonderful (much needed) sense of humour. I cannot fault my fathers care and he and his family members are always treated with dignity and respect.
