Reviews

8.9 Maryfield West Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.850)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Maryfield West Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Maryfield West Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.3 for Maryfield West Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.3

  • 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 4.55 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Maryfield West Nursing 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 5 Target = 0.800

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

My mother has been in Maryfield West for some years now. She has been entirely satisfied with her stay throughout this time. I have found that the staff maintain a friendly relationship with the service users and are aware of the personal likes of each resident. They spend time to get to know the families or carers and residents' needs are dealt with immediately and accurately. Management are available and approachable and aware of all the details of the day to day working, as well as more personal requirements of residents. The staff are hard working and attend to the needs of residents quickly and in a caring manner. Laundry, hairdressing etc are all available and performed very well.

My Mother has been in Maryfield West for almost two years and she has settled very well.
The staff are very helpful and most of them are jolly and make the residents laugh.
The home is clean and in my opinion well run, the laundry is always done regularly and delivered back to the rooms.
The food, on the whole, is good, but it must be difficult to cater for everybody's needs.
I always feel welcome when I visit my Mum and any questions I ask are answered to my satisfaction.
We have our good days and bad but overall I think of Maryfield West as my Mum's home.

Staff at Maryfield West are always pleasant and polite to residents and visitors. Mum is well cared for and is comfortable in her room. There is always someone to help her with her meals and encourage her to eat and drink. Overall, the nursing home maintains a good standard and I am very happy with mum's care.

I walked through the door of Maryfield West Nursing Home one December morning and felt a sense of warmth, peace and tranquillity.
The entrance is warm and inviting, I was greeted by a carer and a manager. I went upstairs to see my mother, the lounge was full of Christmas, the residents seemed very interested in their activity lady, who was busy doing crafty things. I was welcomed by the carers who are not only very caring to the residents but also to the relatives, asking if you want a cup of tea, a chair etc... you feel a great sense of belonging.
