Reviews

8.7 Barchester Fairview House Care Home has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.685)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Fairview House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Fairview 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 4 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 4.739 for Barchester Fairview House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 46 Ratings = 4.739

  • 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 3.946 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Fairview House Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 20.4 positive Reviews (102 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 20.4 Target = 0.196

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

The quality of care was excellent. The staff were very professional, accommodating and looked after us all at a very sensitive time. I got to know many of them well. They made us feel very welcome. I will never forget the kindness they showed to me and my mum during her final days.

The home is in a nice location. I would recommend it.

Thank you.

Very much a home away from home from the Management down. You have an impression of a happy ship which allows the staff and residents to relate to one another and feel secure in the knowledge that your relative is being looked after to the staff's maximum ability. The management's policy of involving the relatives at each step of the resident's well-being makes for a very supportive regime and it's very much appreciated.
