Reviews

9.4 Barchester The Manor Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.427)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Barchester The Manor Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester The Manor 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 15 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 4.555 for Barchester The Manor Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.555

  • 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 4.872 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester The Manor Care Home is based on 15 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.872

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

I'm so thankful my daughter found this extremely caring and lovely home for me. My room has become my home where friends and family may come and spend as much time as they want with me and we're not a bother to anyone as we are self-contained.

It's kept very clean each day and the bathroom also for which I'm extremely grateful. The cleaning staff are a very loving team and works so well together as do all the staff in their various fields which of course gives a very happy and caring atmosphere to the home. Food is varied with multiple choices so no-one need have something day after day unless they choose to. With the window to the floor, it gives so much light to the room and with the heavy curtains which are lined gives the warmth and blackout one needs at night. I am so thankful I can end my time here.

Thank you for taking the time to review our care home. I am thrilled to hear how highly you rate The Manor. I look forward to feeding back your comments to our dedicated team.

Having been some three months at The Manor Care Home, I am very pleased to write in appreciation of everything I have experienced. Individual accommodation is well appointed and maintained. Public areas are attractively furnished and decorated. The highest standards of cleanliness apply throughout. Personal laundering is efficient and of very high quality. Varied and carefully chosen menus are well prepared and presented. Personal choices can usually be met if a menu really does not appeal. All staff consistently show thoughtful care, friendly courtesy and great patience and good humour with residents often suffering serious physical or mental failure. I can think of no occasion when some complaint has been justified. The Manor Care Home is to be very strongly recommended.

Furniture and fittings are like those of a luxury hotel. The staff are caring and friendly. I was taken to the dentist by my carer in my electric wheelchair in the homes fully equipped wheelchair bus. The availability of a cheerful full-time physio is a bonus.

I am very happy with The Manor Care Home for my mother. Helpful and caring staff, lovely location and surrounding, ensuite rooms - good size.
My mum has been here for 5 years and she is happy. Her health needs have always been helped and met. Good food. My mother is very happy here. She is bed ridden but enjoys the happy and friendly environment.

My wife moved into The Manor August 2016. She was somewhat confused, to begin with, but every member of staff expressed concern for her constantly taking any opportunity to make her feel safe and comfortable. That has continued every day and my wife is happy and has made friends with all staff. Myself, I feel happy knowing she is in a caring, friendly home.

The Manor is first class at the moment the carers and staff have done a great job in supporting my wife. I ask the staff every day how she is and they update me. They have done an amazing job in healing a pressure sore she has had - I am very pleased. The food I can't fault or the care - it's fantastic. I am proud to say my wife is at The Manor.

A lovely home. The staff here are very kind and caring. They feed us well and have physio which is great, they take us out on the minibus to different places and are always doing different fun days. The manager and deputy are nice and funny. The nurses are very kind and helpful. The kitchen is good too but it's the carers who sell it for me. They look after us very well and our friends. They are always busy doing something but also always make time for us.

It's not just December, but all year round. That my wife is looked after exceptionally well at The Manor. Their love and devotion is second to none. I live 17 miles away and there is a care home in my village and other nearby, but I don't think they come close to The Manor.

This care home is outstanding. The manager is wonderful and has taken such good care of me and my wife. I cannot fault her and the team. They have helped me with applications for funding and written letters, put me in touch with professionals and have always come when my wife needed them. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness. They deserve so much more recognition and I am truly grateful. They go through my wife's care with me every month and keep me updated with how she is. The manager even gave me a Birthday card and a little cake as we have no family. They truly care about everyone.

A fantastic care home in the most beautiful surroundings. The home has recently been refurbished and offers outstanding nursing care. Although the upstairs unit has not yet been decorated, it is the quality of care that is the best. The new manager is very friendly and kind and her deputy is very knowledgeable about the home. You can hear lots of laughter around the home. It's nice to see that staff treat residents as equals. My relative is so well looked after. Has recently put on weight, has plenty to do and has all her needs met. I will soon be booking my room.
