The Review Score of 7.4 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3 out of 5 from 1 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 4.333 for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.333

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 3.074 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered beds ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.074

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

My wife was admitted from the hospital for palliative care. She was only in the home for two weeks before passing away. The family and i were impressed by the wonderful care and attention she was given.

I cannot praise the Sherwood Court Nursing home highly enough. My dad had terminal cancer and was with them for three weeks until he passed away there. In that time he was happy and made comfortable, the staff were incredible and could not have done more for him. The facilities and cleanliness were great and he was treated with dignity and kindness while also having a laugh and joke with the staff which made him feel more like an individual. The overall treatment he and my family received made a very painful time much easier to cope with.

In my opinion the current staffing levels (1 nurse and 2 care assistants to 10 patients) is too low to provide the care I expect.
She has dementia and does not receive adequate stimulation and attention.
The staff try to care as much as possible, but staffing levels do not allow them to spend as much time with them as we would like and the patient's need.
