Reviews

9 Northfield Care Centre has a Review Score of 9 (9.000)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Northfield Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Northfield Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 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 5 for Northfield Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 5

  • 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 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Northfield Care Centre 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.250

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

Reviewer Connection to Northfield Care Centre

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My mum has been in respite for three weeks at North Fields. I can't praise the staff enough for the care that they have given my mum. Her room was an en-suite and was very clean as was all the home.
Family and friends were welcome to visit and could even book to stay for dinner.
All the staff are a credit to the home and I would highly recommend North Fields Care Centre. My mum would not hesitate to go back in the future. The food was fresh and hot and my mum who is 90 has put weight on during her stay.
In the future, should my mum need permanent care I would not go anywhere else.

Mum who is in this care centre on Amber Care needs 24/7 care. All staff are extremely caring and loving towards Mum. They talk to her all the time, she is bedridden and staff always popping in to check on her. Nothing is too much trouble, they are a lovely bunch of care workers. It gives me peace of mind to know she is in this 5* establishment and being looked after the way she is.

I cannot praise this new home highly enough. My lovely dad who is very precious to us and sadly bed bound has been looked after by all the lovely staff with great care, compassion and respect. Nothing is too much trouble and although the care my dad receives is the most important thing to us, my dad's bedroom is so pleasant, light airy and with lovely decor, we couldn't ask for more. A jewel amongst many of the other care homes.
