Reviews

9.4 Barchester Overslade House Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.370)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Overslade House 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Overslade House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 14 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 4.583 for Barchester Overslade House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (77 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.787 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Overslade House Care Home 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 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.787

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

The care my brother in law receives from the Barchester Overslade House Care Home is good I cannot fault them. He is kept clean and always looks nice but they don't only care for him but they care for the families too. We feel like part of a family when we go to visit, nothing is too much trouble and we leave there with an easy mind. They all care about him so much and I think so much of all the staff. I would recommend Barchester Overslade House Care Home to anybody.

My father was admitted during May 2017. The care my father receives was the best he could have ever had. His quality of life was so improved. All of the staff became not only his best friends, but also friends to all of the family. Overslade is a happy home, providing function days for residents and their family.
I have seen other care homes within my location, Overslade, in my opinion, is the best in the area. Now my father has sadly passed away, the family will miss visiting, it was such a nice home.

The home must be one of the best. My husband was losing blood in his catheter and went into the hospital for tests. The carer from the home who went with my husband could not have been better. He is now back at the home. His room overlooks a lovely garden with flowers and trees. The family could not be more pleased.

My mother was admitted to Barchester Overslade House in June 2016 as a palliative care resident for possibly a few weeks or months.
Her care and treatment by the nursing staff was excellent. The carers were always considerate and thoughtful and the support team made her time there as enjoyable as possible.
Mum died in May 2017, exceeding the life expectancy originally diagnosed and I feel this was, on the whole, because she received such an excellent level of care and support.
Mum died a few weeks ago but I feel that mum's last year was spent in comfortable surroundings, with dignity, constant care and she made many new friends.
The support also extended to all her family - we were always made welcome.

A close friend of long standing has been a resident of Barchester Overslade House Care Home for over a year and another close friend has just moved in. As an infrequent visitor, I have found the atmosphere to be warm and welcoming - together with professional and caring when dealing with the diverse needs of everyone. Having experienced many similar homes, I would have no hesitation in saying Barchester Overslade House Care Home is the best.

Myself and my sister in law visited over a dozen nursing homes looking for a place for my husband who had Alzheimer's.
As soon as we walked into Overslade House we both knew this was the place. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, the home was spotlessly clean and beautiful and suitably decorated for people with dementia. The meals were delicious and cooked fresh on the premises and nothing was too much trouble.
The care he received, in the three months he was there, was wonderful. They were so caring and supportive, not only to both him and myself but to the family and friends who were there constantly in his final days.

Overslade House was outstanding for the all to brief time our relative was staying there. Our experience could not have been any better. The care staff and nurses were all extremely kind, efficient, friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The manager and deputy manager's door was always open and they were extremely helpful and approachable, even before we had secured a room.
The rooms, facilities, food and surroundings were all superb. First class in every aspect.

Our mum stayed at the nursing home for several months and then was able to return to her bungalow.
She was poorly and frightened on admission and soon settled in. The welcome she got was so warm.
My sister, brother and I were always made to feel welcome too. We were all treated with respect and listened to if we had any questions.
We were always greeted with smiles from staff. Mum was always treated with dignity.
The home is a beautiful place with lovely furnishings. There is always a great variety of activities - the staff (from cleaners, cooks - to nurses and management) are fantastic.

Helen Levine, Administrator at Barchester Overslade House Care Home responded to this review on 11 May 2017:

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have looked after your mum and we are all really pleased that she was able to return to her home.

My mother has been a resident at Overslade House for 7 years. Recently, she celebrated her 90th birthday. Staff helped me to organise a tea party for her in the coffee lounge and the kitchen provided a buffet for the family attending.
It was hassle free for me and everything worked like clockwork. The food was lovely. Recently, the manager asked if I would like my mother to move to a smaller more comfortable unit in the home. She thought it would suit my mother better. It has been a good move thanks to the care of the manager.

Could not wish for any better place for my wife than this, if only it was 18 miles nearer to where I live. It would be even better ie South Leicester.

We were all anxious and apprehensive about dad moving to a nursing home and truly feared that he would not settle. We could not have been more wrong; he is very happy and the staff have gone out of their way to help him feel valued. There have been hiccups but all have been resolved promptly and with good humour.
