Reviews

9.5 Fairholme Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.549)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Fairholme 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fairholme Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 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 4.799 for Fairholme Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.799

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fairholme Nursing Home is based on 9 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.750

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

Thank you for your positive feedback.

This is on behalf of my family.
My father was a resident of Fairholme for around 7 years.
He passed away on 24.07.17.
I can honestly say that my experience of the care at Fairholme is of the utmost kindness. They are happy to help and are always available to talk when you have the need to speak with them.
The care they gave my father was the best he could have got and for this, they deserve a medal.

Thank you for your kind words, we appreciate all the feedback.

When full-time nursing care for my mum became inevitable, making the right choice was a daunting prospect. From our initial visit, first impressions of Fairholme as a well-run, clean and homely residence have, over 20 months, been realised in the delivery of high-quality nursing care and a genuine interest in the welfare of its residents.
Even when under the greatest pressure, staff members were always sensitive to mum’s needs, went out their way to make a difference and add that much-needed human touch in every task. From the kitchen and cleaning staff to the healthcare workers, nurses and managers, we remain eternally grateful to every member of the Fairholme team who looked after my mum as one of their own and continue to make this care home into the caring community it is – thank you.

We (my brother and I) were extremely satisfied with the level of care our father received during his 6 month period at Fairholme Nursing Home. All staff were extremely kind, friendly and thoughtful towards our dad. They were all thoroughly professional in all levels of care and worked well as a team to put his needs foremost in their nursing and care. As his health declined he was offered options discussed by his GP along with the nursing staff. These wishes were met and we were kept informed of every change and variation in his condition. We were all shown the greatest level of sympathy, understanding and consideration. We are comforted to know that our father could not have been in a better care home to end his days with such loving and attentive people around him. Thanks to all concerned.

My parents had a double room, which they shared. It was a pleasant room, with an ensuite bathroom. As a retired professional in the nursing field, I was very happy and impressed with the care given to my parents. Unfortunately, they did not settle, and I was obliged to take them back to their bungalow, with live in care. But in the intervening period, while they were in Fairholme, the staff did their level best to address any issues that arose.
Everyone, from the domestic staff to senior nurses were very helpful and supportive to my parents, my husband and myself. I have no hesitation in recommending Fairholme.

My Mum moved to this nursing home in November 2016, bed and chair bound and unable to walk after contracting 'Lewy Body Dementia'. Previous to this she was a very active and fit person. This has hit us hard as a family, but 'all' the staff have been fantastic. She is checked regularly, fed well and her personal hygiene is treated with care and dignity. I am informed by phone immediately if she is unwell and am updated daily on her wellbeing. Nothing is too much trouble and any requests are dealt with quickly and with a smiling face. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fairholme to family and friends.

My mother was 93 and diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus and we were struggling at home as she deteriorated as there was no care in the community available. When we approached Fairholme, they were excellent and worked with us to get her into the home ASAP. Unfortunately, mum was only in the home for a week when she passed away.
I feel that her end of life was made better by the attention she was given by all the staff, I can’t thank them enough.

My mum was transferred from the hospital to Fairholme Nursing Home about 2 years ago. At that time we were told that mum would be lucky to survive 6 months. However, mum settled in very well and celebrated her 99th birthday at the home. We as a family are convinced that mum survived for 2 years because of the care and support that she received at the home. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were brilliant. Mum passed away on 31st August 2016. I have no hesitation in recommending this home to you.

I was admitted to Fairholme in January. I must admit I was a bit apprehensive, but on arriving was met by 2 staff and felt at home straight away. I was put in the lounge with 5 other ladies and welcomed by them. I had my own room (with teddy on bed) I was treated very well by all the staff (carers). These carers all deserve a medal. They were fantastic, so caring and patient. I was allowed to go to bed when I liked and cared by in the same way by night staff. There was never any pressure put on you by anyone. The food was excellent, all home cooked and a variety. I was there 9 weeks and when I left staff came and waved me off and were crying (some even came in although off duty). Marvellous.

When trying to find a care home for my father-in-law, we viewed about 4 and when we arrived at Fairholme, as soon as we went in, we said yes. The management were very polite and helpful, since father has been there you couldn't not wish for better service and dedication 24 hours a day. Everyone has been so kind and loving to us all.
Fathers last hours went treated with respect and we were all kept up to date with his condition. I must thank everyone from top management to the cleaners and maintenance men. What a grand job you have all done.
thank you.

Fairholme was superb during our relatives stay, very clean, warm and inviting, more like a families home than a care facility.
After our relative passed away, they were a tremendous help with arrangements, care and support for the family.
Thoroughly recommended!!!
