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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.955 for Barchester Chester Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (150 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.955

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Chester Court Care Home is based on 10 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 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target Reached = 1

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

From the day my Grandma came into Chester Court her world so improved and so did mine! Everyone from the cleaning staff to everyone else has been exceptional. My whole experience of care homes has changed due to this, taking a loved one into the care of others is a major thing and my prayers were answered when I walked into Chester Court.

Chester Court has cared for my mum during the last fourteen months until her death at the end of May. My mum suffered from advances stages of dementia and alzheimers. After a fall at home my mum lost her mobility and became bed bound. To improve her quality of life I decided Chester Court could provide the purpose built environment in which mum could have a variety in her surrounding and contact with others. I was not disappointed. She was wheeled around in a recliner chair and able to watch activities although not able to participate. She was kept beautifully clean and treated with kindness and sensitivity until her death. The staff are cheerful and friendly and the open door policy on visiting is an excellent approach to caring for elderly dementia patients.

Chester Court was highly recommend to me by a good friend who had carried out extensive research into nursing homes in the Northumberland Area. Her own mother is now a resident of the home. My own mother, who is 97 years old, was moved to Chester Court on Christmas eve, from the local hospital. She has cellulitis and cancer and both conditions require daily care and monitoring. having visited the home in the past week to celebrate my mothers 97th Birthday, I noticed a big change in her. She is much calmer and happier and relaxed and this has been an enormous source of relief to the family. The staff are kind, committed and aware. Excellent vibe.

My father was placed in Chester Court in June 2014 at first with dread as I live 400 miles away. I visited him the week after he was admitted there and straight away I was put at ease. The staff are very friendly and caring. I was free to call in anytime of day and stay as long as I wanted. The staff were not only caring to my Dad but also to myself. the home is a fantastic place with excellent staff. Nothing is too much for them. For the last 18 months Chester Court gave my father a new lease of life after being bedridden for years, he was able to get out and about, living again in his last few months. My father made many friendships with people in Chester Court not only with residents, staff also. Chester Court was his home and the staff make it a wonderful place.
