9.3 Canford Chase has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.297)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Canford Chase 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Canford Chase 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 4.752 for Canford Chase is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 105 Ratings = 4.752

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 4.545 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Canford Chase 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered beds ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.545

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

The staff swiftly assessed my mother and took her in after she was made temporarily homeless after a fire in her block at her house. She received a great welcome and a welcoming hug. The staff went out of their way to make mum feel at home. The food was delicious, plentiful and tailored to mums desires. The activities to her liking but most important of all the staff very attentive. Thank you.

I lived in a sheltered accommodation for 18 years as I needed more care. My friends have advised me to come to Canford Chase Nursing Home because they came for respite before.
Over here I find I get more support, the staff are very friendly and caring.
I am in the process of selling my flat, soon when I will sell it and I will consider Canford Chase as my home.

Everything is very good. The nurses and carers did everything they could to help my wife. They did feed her and make her comfortable, more during the last 6 to 8 weeks. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even though, on occasions, she refused their help.

The staff are lovely people and everything they provided for her was first class and if I asked for something, it was always provided.

I am a fit 77 year old widow. I had a fall on 20th May 2016, whilst attending a social function meeting at 4pm (No alcohol or food involved) this fall resulted in a right hip fracture and I had surgery at Bournemouth Nuffield Hospital. I came to Canford Chase nursing home on 3rd June 2016 and departed 24th June to return home. My care has been of the highest standard and I have no hesitation in recommending this nursing home.

Canford Chase offers an open and pleasing residence of a high standard at all levels of care for 54 ladies and gentleman. The rooms are well maintained offering comforting d├ęcor and unsuits. The communal areas are spacious and bright but can feel crowded at times when busy with wheelchairs and frames. Staff on all levels are to be commended for their service 24/7 creating a calm and happy atmosphere and quality meals, activities and excursions.

My godmother has been in two other homes. The first care home chosen by myself became unsuitable due to her increasing care needs. The second chosen by social services was ok but Canford Chase was my 1st choice once I got P.O.A. It feels like a nice friendly hotel. All staff are welcoming and friendly. The rooms are clean and smart. My godmother is getting great care. Family and friends are encouraged to come in for lunch anytime (with 24 hours notice) I can honestly say the food is excellent. They are very organised and label all clothes within minutes of giving new items to them using smart iron on labels. I have no faults to say at all, well done Colton Care!
