Reviews

8.3 Forefaulds Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.286)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Forefaulds Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Forefaulds Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.857 for Forefaulds Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.857

  • 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 3.429 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Forefaulds Nursing Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.179

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

Both my Mother and Father-in-law are in Forefaulds Nursing Home. They have been there together since August 2016. They both have dementia. Finding Forefaulds was a life saver for my husband and myself. They are in the smaller unit due to their complex needs. The staff are brilliant with them. The unit is warm and inviting, always smells nice and the atmosphere is calm and happy. The level of cleanliness is very high. They are well cared for at all times, they are fed and fussed over all day long and tell me themselves that it's a great place to stay. They always look clean and well dressed. The staff got to know all about them straight away and genuinely care for all their residents. They always treat them with respect and consideration. I don't worry about them when I visit and can sleep at night knowing they are safe and content. I will be eternally grateful to all the team at Forefaulds for making the end part of their lives as good as it can be.

Dad arrived at Forefaulds not sure what to expect. Within 2 hours he had decided he was staying - permanently!
We were given a very friendly greeting and given a choice of rooms. The staff even went out and purchased more 'manly' bedding rather than the pink florals that were available! On that first day, and since, all staff have provided my dad with the level of care and attention that he was so sadly lacking at home alone. They have all made us feel welcome and have managed to provide a consistently high level of care even although the home is currently a building site! The top moment so far was the lovely party for his birthday. We just couldn't get him off the dance floor! It's lovely to see the level of engagement the staff all have with each resident. It's been such a relief to know dad is now safe and well cared for.

Always staff on hand to help when needed and the facility is kept to a very high standard in terms of cleanliness etc. Highly recommended facility as far as we are concerned.

We visited a number of care homes before deciding on Forefaulds Nursing Home. When we visited unannounced every member of staff was involved with a resident which was a first in all the facilities we had visited. In our experience this home and especially the staff are second to none. They all go above and beyond any requirement of them with the care and attention they show and could not be more welcoming when we visit each day The quality of food served is excellent also. I cannot compliment them enough as I know my mum is in the best of care.

Since placing our family member in this care home it has given us as a family more quality time to spend with them. Also the staff have been outstanding in the care and attention given to detail with personal care, socialising with theme days and raffles where they invite family. Staff interact with residents doing crafts and knitting, making cakes. The home honors everybody's birthday celebrations. As family members we trust the staff and are alerted as soon as a problem arises. We are so glad that we have a body of good people to put our trust in.
