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 4.826 for Sherwood Forest Residential and Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.826

  • 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 3.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sherwood Forest Residential and Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.067

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

I am always glad to visit. The staff not only show great care and compassion for residents but they also welcome family and friends. The staff see residents as individuals, noting personal preferences. There are always members of staff present to keep an eye on things and anticipate needs. They really care. There is a choice of food. The bedrooms and communal areas are clean and smell fresh. There are extra activities which are open to family and friends. I often hear laughter and animated conversations. It's a good place to be.

My husband who has dementia often refers to staying "in a hotel" when talking about Sherwood Forest Care Centre. His room and ensuite are cleaned every day. The home has a happy atmosphere and holds many events that residents relatives are invited to. There is a full-time activities manager who is excellent at arranging different activities and encourages residents to participate. Residents that I have observed and seen with my husband are treated very well, with respect and dignity. The food is lovely and plentiful with choice. My husband looks forward to going to the café as he calls it for meals.
