Overview

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Cheriton Nursing Home Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cheriton Nursing Home Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.476 for Cheriton Nursing Home Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (74 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 164 Ratings = 4.476

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cheriton Nursing Home Ltd is based on 14 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 9 Target Reached = 1

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

9.5 Cheriton Nursing Home Ltd has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.476) from 14 Reviews

My relative has some complex needs which centre around poor mental health and mobility issues. Based on this, they receive a high-level of care which I judge is not the norm for nursing homes. I have found the staff committed to my relative which has been very welcome and reassuring since they can be difficult. I would recommend this nursing home to people faced with this difficult choice.

Mum has been a resident here for 2 years now. I find all the staff very helpful. I always have a chat with the manager, nurses and they always have time for you. Mum's room is very spacious and always clean. Overall, I'm pleased I picked this home for my mum.

After experiencing other care homes prior to this one, coming to this one was like a breath of fresh air. The atmosphere from all staff and everyone concerned was brilliant. The food and drink was excellent.
In fact, I can't praise everything and everyone highly enough.

I have been visiting my friend at Cheriton Nursing Home for over a year now, once a week since she went to live there. She is alert and lively and I worried at first that she has made the right decision but she is very happy there and in no doubt. It's warm, clean and friendly, so much so I almost want to stay. The carers, staff and nurses are professional, caring and cheerful.

My mother is treated with respect by all the staff and has come to see staff and other residents as friends. She seems truly at home and any fears I had about her settling into a new place at a new stage of life have proved groundless. We are welcome to call 24/7 and the staff have come to know my mother very well. I would highly recommend Cheriton.

My 98-year-old parents are residents of Cheriton Nursing Home and are very happy in a beautiful room with space for them to sit in their easy chairs. No other home I looked at could accommodate them both together which, after 76 years of marriage was very important.
The nurses, carers and housekeeping staff are all attentive, kind and professional. I have the utmost confidence that my parents are being looked after well.
