Reviews

9.5 Rashwood Care Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.454)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rashwood Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.888 for Rashwood Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.888

  • 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 4.566 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rashwood Care Home 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.566

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

Rashwood has exceeded all expectations. It was a worry finding the right place owing to the complexity of the needs, but I’m delighted.

The nursing staff are skilled and knowledgeable. The carers are helpful, kind, and answer promptly when needed. The cleaners are thorough, the food is lovely, the managerial and administrative teams are very professional. The grounds and buildings are pristine and the social staff and activities are the bonus I’d never realised we needed. Everyone is friendly and goes the extra mile to ensure mum is safe, cared for and happy.

This is a most beautiful care home set in wonderful countryside. My mother has been in Rashwood Care Home for six weeks.
The nursing and carers have been simply superb keeping us informed at all times of doctors visits, medicines etc. The food is excellent, nutritious and very well present. The rooms are all beautifully furnished and immaculate at all times.
The manager and her staff should be very proud of their nursing home. There is also quite a lot of events arranged daily. I would not hesitate in recommending Rashwood Care Home.

We looked at a lot of nursing homes before choosing Rashwood Care Home for our dear dad's end of life care. He was there for 10 months and I feel he couldn't have been happier, better cared for or more loved by such a dedicated staff in this last stage of his life.
I can't ever thank all the staff enough nurses, carers and all the other people who's hard work contribute to make it such a pleasant, comfortable and caring environment. I felt nothing was ever too much trouble. I am particularly grateful for their support to make dads last few difficult weeks comfortable and pain fress and their support of us as a family too.
It's the little things that matter that add up to make a very big difference.

My father in law was a resident at Rashwood Care Home from December 2016 until October 2017.

During this time he was lovingly cared for both by the nursing staff and carers.

I cannot praise highly enough the devotion of all the staff to caring for my father in law throughout his stay and I will be eternally grateful to the entire staff.

The staff at Rashwood are always kind and affectionate towards my mum. There is always a lovely atmosphere, and although it took a while, my mum now thinks of it as her home.

The entertainment is well planned and the food is excellent.

You can always approach the management and nothing seems too much trouble.

My husband has been living at Rashwood Nursing Home for five years. He has always been treated with respect and they preserve his dignity. He was recently very ill and almost died. During all of this, the staff were really caring to my husband and especially to me. The care he receives is excellent. Staff are very friendly but professional at all times.

I would recommend them to anyone. Anyone who comes to Rashwood could not get better care anywhere else.

Excellent care from all aspects our wishes were respected and my mothers were taken into account on every level. The staff were always so friendly and caring, sadly my mother was too ill to participate in activities but the atmosphere is delightful. I would recommend Rashwood Care Home on every aspect.

I feel very well looked after at Rashwood like a 5 star hotel. The care staff are warm and friendly and most of them are from the local area, as I am, so I feel amongst friends. The extensive grounds are beautiful and well kept and a great pleasure to walk around. Absolutely perfect! (and I should mention that a peacock guards the front entrance!)
