Reviews

9.7 Witnesham Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.664)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Witnesham 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Witnesham Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.664 for Witnesham Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.664

  • 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 Witnesham Nursing Home is based on 10 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 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.

Very friendly and was well received by staff. Smartly kept in both furnishings and decoration, the accommodation (room) was very comfortable and staff most helpful. Also in a very pleasant location.

I feel that my husband's general care is very good. I was worried when he first came into the home as we have never experienced this before, but it's good.

Personally, I find the residential home an environment that is friendly, caring with a happy atmosphere. All that I would look for when selecting a home for my family. The care is as good as it can be, the food smells nice, tastes nice and looks nice, the midday meal is excellent.
Everyone is approachable to discuss anything with. A home from home with professional care given.

I feel like my grandad is well cared for here and when I can't make a visit I feel that he will still be well supported!
He is encouraged to engage with staff and other residents which I like.

My Uncle has been in Witnesham Nursing Home since January 2017. The care provided by the staff is second to none and we have been very pleased. It is a very friendly place and has a cosy, homely feel to it. It is pristine and the food is home-cooked and tempting and tasty for the residents. We think it is a gem of a place.
