Reviews

9.8 Eversley Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.832)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Eversley Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Eversley Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.832 for Eversley Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.832

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Eversley Nursing Home is based on 6 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 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target Reached = 1

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

Having looked at many other homes as soon as my sister and I walked in we knew it was right for mum.
She soon settled in. Everyone has had time for mum and us and have been so kind and caring, from the manageress and the nursing staff to the chef, maintenance man and the cleaner. They couldn't do enough and I would recommend The Eversley Nursing Home to anyone.

My Father was resident at the Eversley Nursing Home from the beginning of December 2016 until 16 March 2017, and from the moment he arrived into their care he was treated with the utmost respect and compassion, and his dignity and independence was at the forefront of everything the team did for him. The environment at the Eversley, while not ultra-modern, is exceptionally clean, and very homely. The food is excellent, with a wide variety of dishes offered to meet the needs of the residents ie as Dad became more unwell his diet changed but the team adapted what was on offer to meet his needs, and also to tempt his taste buds so that he was satisfied. The nursing staff are excellent, their expertise in end of life care means that they are able to support the residents and families to a very high level. The entire care team are outstanding, and we as a family are so thankful that Dad was able to spend his final days in a loving environment.

If I was asked to recommend a nursing home, Eversley Lodge, as far as I'm concerned is the only one.
Every one of the team deserves recognition and the highest praise for their efficiency, friendliness, and most of all their compassion and kindness shown, not only to my husband but to all my family. Often going above the call of duty I felt.
We thank them all, from the bottom of our hearts.

My brother has been in the care of staff at Eversley Nursing Home for over 10 years and we have never had to make even one complaint. His care has been excellent and all of the staff are very caring. The management are the most caring you could possibly meet. My brother has just passed away this week and his final days were peaceful, pain-free and dignified. Our family will be always grateful for the way he was cared for at Eversley Nursing Home. They are all angels.

My Mum lived here for her last 8 yrs. Care was excellent and the food was always very, very good. Any minor problems were treated seriously and promptly addressed to our satisfaction. Her care needs were constantly assessed and changed as needed. Safety was always a prime concern, while allowing her to do what she wanted as much as possible.
Her emotional and social needs were also cared for. The staff all treated her in a kind way, making every effort to communicate with her and find out her desires, even when it became hard, due to her dementia.
She responded to the manager, nurses and carers with the same affection they showed her. At all times I was kept informed and felt part of the care team.
Any problems or questions, I was able to talk to the manager or nurse and resolve. During her last illness, her care needs continued to be met, she spent her whole time surrounded by love and affection. I cannot find fault in management, nurses, carers or other staff. Great support to relatives.

My Uncle spent the last 5 weeks of his life at the Eversley. The staff are exceptional in their standard of care. They are welcoming and friendly. My Uncle was very happy and comfortable there. They made all the family feel very welcome at any time of day or night. The atmosphere was relaxed and homely, nothing was too much trouble. He could choose what he fancied to eat and there was always plenty of hot and cold drinks for him and the family. Their end of life care was faultless, they are a strong team with high standards, led by an excellent Manager. Thank you.

This home is excellent in my eyes, my aunt was well looked after her. The manager is kind, caring and honest, and makes time to talk to you about anything, all the staff were really friendly and it was a home from home. The home is clean, tidy and homely. My aunt was happy there.
