Reviews

8.9 Fremington Manor Country House Care has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.894)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Fremington Manor Country House Care 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fremington Manor Country House Care in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.811 for Fremington Manor Country House Care is calculated as follows: ( (88 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 106 Ratings = 4.811

  • 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 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fremington Manor Country House Care is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

My mother chose to go into a nursing home over three years ago and I was recommended Fremington Manor. She is so happy with her decision and she has gone from strength to strength with the excellent care she has received. Everyone seems so friendly and attentive. I know she is safe in well-qualified hands which was not the case at home. This is a very well run home with high standards. We cannot find any faults.

Since my Dad was admitted he has been looked after brilliantly. Not only have they tended to and helped him, also helped the family. Keeping us informed at every turn and been available 24 hours a day for any problems and questions the family have had. Best care home in the area by far. Worth every penny. Huge thank you to all staff involved with my Dad's care.

Sadly my father passed away recently and felt I needed to express gratitude on behalf of the family at Fremington Manor. The staff were like his second family and treated him with respect and dignity at all times and as a family, we were always made welcome and communicated with before his passing. First class establishment run by first class staff and all the care staff.

My mother receives excellent care and is always treated with greatest respect and dignity. Empathy between staff and the elderly in the home is brilliant. As a regular visitor to the home I am always made to feel very welcome. On occasions the food could be better prepared and a little more thought given to what elderly and infirm people can and want to eat. There is always plenty to drink and drinking plenty is very much encouraged.

Simon Bird, Director at Fremington Manor Country House Care responded to this review on 10 Aug 2015:

Management and catering staff within the home are constantly working with our residents and their families to ensure that all our residents benefit from a well balanced and nutritional diet, as well as allowing for the odd treat, and catering for individual's preferences. Nevertheless the feedback is appreciated, and we continue to strive to provide the very best care possible.

My mother has to be moved because her old home was closing - which we were very disappointed about. But Fremington Manor have been equally as good, they have ensured Mum has settled well and made every effort to get used to her individual, complex needs. They regularly inform us of her changes and are always at hand to speak to us either by phone or in person. Amazing care.

My mother has been a Fremington Manor Nursing home for a few months now and has really settled well. She does have bouts of confusion but feels happy here. Most staff really seem to care and her care is good. They include me in everything that happens to her and I love that! Mum needs encouragement to join in with activities and the staff have managed to do this on occasions Amazing. Mum and I would prefer her to be in her own home but this the next best thing.
