The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Orchar 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Orchar Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.894 for Orchar Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (161 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.894

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Orchar Nursing Home is based on 9 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 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

My Mother has now been resident at Orchar for 17 months. The care provided is excellent and the surroundings and atmosphere are like a country hotel rather than a care home. All members of staff are very polite and caring.

Excellent care both medical and residential staff are supportive and understanding of all circumstances and my mother's condition of dementia.

My mother is always kept smart, clean and well dressed. All staff understand her individual circumstances and condition.

We are also made to feel very welcome when we visit.

We have great confidence in her care and how she now likes.

My mother has lived at Orchar Nursing Home for 17 months. The care and attention of all management, nursing and care staff is exemplary and leaves me feeling very confident that my mother is being given the best care 24 hours a day. This gives me great peace of mind. The home is run with a friendly, positive, family home style feeling, which extends to residents and relatives of residents. The surroundings are very pleasant and the very good food is varied and nutritious. There are many activities for the residents to join in if and when they wish. My father was also a resident at Orchar for 14 months and was able to remain at the home with end of life nursing, given with dignity, professionalism and utmost goodwill. The care and attention for him and for the family at that time was absolutely first class. I would certainly recommend Orchar Nursing Home to anyone who is looking for a caring home for their relative.

A very comfortable care home. It does not have the feeling of being institutionalised, which I personally like. Staff are very pleasant and willing to help. The general atmosphere certainly not depressing but warm and positive. Food seems to be of a very good standard and kitchen staff very helpful and welcoming.
Overall, very satisfied with this home and the care it provides.

My mother has been living in Orchar Nursing Home for 18 months now, and has settled in extremely well; she has a spacious, clean, well-appointed room, and all her medical and personal care needs are met to a high standard. The staff are caring and professional, and very welcoming to visitors. There is a varied programme of activities and outings, in which my mother enjoys participating. Meals are of good quality and are served in a delightful dining room, overlooking the river. I am kept well informed about my mother's condition, relatives' meetings, etc. and have peace of mind knowing that she is being well looked after in an environment in which she is comfortable.

The transition from home environment to a nursing home was made smoothly and with support from the staff/was carried out with minimum distress.
There are no shortage of daily activities and staff and carers are very sympathetic to each resident's individual needs.

My mother has lived in Orchar Nursing Home now for 2 years. She is happy and well cared for. The staff are friendly and caring. She enjoys the social activities that are provided daily. Her health has improved greatly, her weight and eating habits have increased. We as a family have welcomed their understanding and expertise of my mothers conditions and have appreciated that if we have had any concerns about her care and well being, that these are dealt with in a professional manner. The staff and management have achieved a comfortable, relaxed and homely feel to all visitors and family members.

Kind, caring - all words to describe Orchar.
Not only is my aunt part of the Orchar family, but so are the relatives. Staff always provide welcoming smiles and my aunt is still able to do the activities she enjoyed, plus new ones, thanks to an excellent activities programme with excellent excursions. The manager operates an open door policy and we could not have found a more caring environment for my aunt. She has a room, which is always clean and which she considers home. As she says, "this is a good place".

My husband is a resident at Orchar Nursing Home and has been since October 2015. I am delighted with the care he receives at Orchar and I trust them completely. All the staff make me very welcome. I am even invited to stay and have my lunch or tea with my husband. The nursing home is always lovely and clean and very welcoming. I would recommend this nursing home to all my friends.

Mum has been in Orchar House for 2 years and is happy, well looked after, treated with respect. All her medical needs and personal care are given in a professional manner. As a relative I am kept informed of my mums care and find the staff very approachable.

We have peace of mind knowing our mum is being well looked after. The staff always have my mum looking presentable, the way she would herself if she was able. We consider ourselves to be lucky with Orchar House and the care given to our mum and that's down to the great staff. Thank you.
