Reviews

9.2 The Wimborne Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.160)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for The Wimborne Care Home 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Wimborne Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 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 4.298 for The Wimborne Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 94 Ratings = 4.298

  • 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 4.862 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Wimborne Care Home is based on 5 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target = 0.862

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

I came in for respite care but am not progressing as well as I had hoped.
However, I couldn't wish for a better experience or happier home.
All the staff are caring and helpful, helping me to settle in quickly and feel at home.

Sara Muslin, Home Manager at The Wimborne Care Home responded to this review on 28 Nov 2016:

Thank you for your comments. We welcome all feedback that will help us continue to improve our care services.

We have recently made some changes to our catering service to enhance our resident dining experience and our Autumn/Winter menu offers a choice of appetising and nutritionally balanced meals here at The Wimborne. We seek regular feedback from residents about the choices of meals that are served and this helps us to plan our menus. If a resident does not like the dish they have ordered we will always try to provide an alternative that is more to their liking.

If there is anything you would like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to contact customercare@brighterkind.com or pop into the home to speak to me anytime. Many thanks, Sara Muslin, Home Manager.”

Since I arrived 3 months ago, the staff have been supportive and kind as I have settled into my new residence. It's not easy to leave your home of many years and they have made the transition as easy as possible for me.
