Reviews

8.1 Wheatfield Court has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.062)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Wheatfield Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.979 for Wheatfield Court is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 3.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wheatfield Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083

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

I would just like to thank all of the staff here. My uncle has been in their care for 17 months. He went in as end of life. They picked him up persevered with his eating habits which was hard. They all made him part of a family in there. We could always leave after visiting and know he would be fine. I really cannot thank you, lasses, enough. He passed away on the 5th February 2018.

I found the staff amazing the care my husband received was the best. His needs and wellbeing until he died were just the best I could have hoped for. I can't thank them enough. I went to visit the staff and completed the form, I just had to tell you what a great place it is.

Sadly my Dad was only at Wheatfield Court for two days before he passed away. However the kindness and compassion shown by the team here was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and their efforts to make my Dad as comfortable and dignified as possible were excellent.

The cleanliness is excellent as are the facilities.

The way they are with their regular residents is lovely, they have fun, show such care and compassion and are everything you could ask for.

These people are carers in the true sense of the word.
