The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Nicholas House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nicholas House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.083 for Nicholas House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.083

  • 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 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.

    The 3.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nicholas House Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.375

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

I was my friend's carer before she had to come into Nicholas House from the very beginning. Myself and her family have been very pleased with her care. The home is a very friendly place and the staff are always there either for the residents or their family.

My Mum went into Nicholas House after having been in hospital for six weeks.
Mum couldn't walk, eat, hold a conversation, in fact, she couldn't do anything.
Now a year on and she is a totally different person.
She joins in with the activities, holds conversations with the staff and residents and enjoys the lovely meals that are cooked on the premises.
The staff at Nicholas House go above and beyond their jobs.
They are amazing, lots of time for residents and also residents' families.
I can't thank them enough.

This review is based on the few month's a very frail, elderly friend with dementia was there.
I found them to be lacking in basic manners and respect for the elderly and their belongings ie. on the day of arrival, no greeting, no introduction, not shown his room.
Personal belongings when taken in, were left lying on the office floor for days.
The home was not well led, inefficient and unprofessional, ie. occupants clothes mixed up, important paper's lost or misplaced.
I also found the home to lack initiative where after the first few weeks, my friend was left in his room all day, every day in the same place or lying on his bed.

Mum has been a resident at Nicholas House Care Home for just four weeks. During this time she has settled very well and this has been helped by the attentiveness of all the staff team who have been very responsive to her needs.
I have found the home and staff to be very welcoming with a very homely/warm atmosphere.
