Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Cherry Trees 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherry Trees in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.895 for Cherry Trees is calculated as follows: ( (85 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.895

  • 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 4.379 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherry Trees is based on 5 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 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.379

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

9.3 Cherry Trees has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.274) from 8 Reviews

I am the granddaughter of one of your ex-residents. He was well cared for and all staff were wonderful and helpful, and made my granddad's last days comfortable. I would like to thank everyone who cared for my granddad.

My grandmother has been overwhelmed by the positive and consistent support she has had throughout her three-week respite stay. All the staff, from the management and admin team to the carers have been nothing but helpful.

From the first minute we entered Cherry Trees we (my mother and I) were warmly welcomed. My mother thoroughly enjoyed her stay. The staff were caring and saw her as an individual and catered to her needs. The food, facilities, activities and her room were excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we really do appreciate the feedback we receive for our home. Our team of compassionate staff strive to understand the needs and requirements of every individual resident in order to provide them with the highest possible level of care. We are pleased to hear this has been your experience at Cherry Trees.

The staff are very easy to approach and gather information from, always happy to oblige any small or large issues we have had with mum in their care. Always greeted with a smile and listen to our sadness with mum having Alzheimer's which came on very suddenly from being okay December 2015 to now being very changed, frustrated, agitated and sad at times, very confused. All the carers and nursing staff very gentle and caring to mum needs for her welfare.
