Reviews

9.8 Cherry Garth has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.833)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Cherry Garth is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherry Garth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.833 for Cherry Garth is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherry Garth is based on 13 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

I visit my friend about once a month - and attend his review meetings. Everything I see during these visits, and his information regarding his daily life sounds as if this home is very good. I have worked as an advocate for disabled people, and seen

My aunt is enjoying things at the care home she is in. She seems to get on well with the staff who are very kind and always helpful. My aunt says she could not be in a better place. I agree and find the staff are always very kind.

My husband who has dementia is receiving very good care at Cherry Garth.
I visit him often.
He loves listening to music in the communal sitting room and there are different activities going on most days.
He is able to join in if he wishes.
The carers are kind and helpful and look after him well.

Well run, excellent care workers, right down to the cleaners. Lovely garden to sit in the sun, get some fresh air and take my mum's mind off day to day living, which at 95 is a challenge. I would recommend the care home to anyone.

I moved my mother to Cherry Garth 18 months ago when her dementia worsened to the extent that she could no longer stay in her previous care home. Having had two years experience of care homes we were very careful in choosing Cherry Garth. However, our experience has been wonderful. She has settled in very well and been well looked after. The staff are excellent. In fact, in the last two months, we have moved my partner's ex-mother-in-law into the same home!

Cherry Garth was my mother's home for almost five years. Despite suffering the progressive effects of Alzheimer's, she lived a happy and meaningful life there, made possible by the wonderful care staff and superb management team.
From a family viewpoint, it was always a pleasure to visit Ma. Before she moved in, we were able to furnish her room to replicate her family home, which gave her the comfort of familiar surroundings and she always had the freedom to potter around in the kitchen, bringing continuity to that of her normal daily routine. Many happy memories with Ma and fellow residents and their families at Cherry Garth including Christmas parties, 'Fine Dining' evenings, summer barbecues in the garden and numerous music events.

My mum was a resident at Cherry Garth since Aug 2012. The kindness, love and support that the incredible team of management and care staff has been outstanding.
My mum was encouraged to live the active lifestyle she always had and despite her dementia, she was happy in her 'home' pottering.
Her care was given with thought and respect and staff took the time to get to know and love her. They were able to cope with times of anxiety by giving her time to chat through things. This understanding created a bond of trust which was an incredible support and reassurance for me as I knew mum was being well looked after.
It was a wonderful place to visit ....just like home.
I realise that choosing a care home is an incredible responsibility and I visited many in the High Wycombe area. Cherry Garth ticked all the boxes - spacious, clean and bright, with en suite rooms and a lovely atmosphere.
Staff did well organising a range of activities and went far beyond their job roles to make residents feel at home

We went to visit many care homes before entrusting our mother to the wonderful Cherry Garth. Everything about it is superb. The care staff always go the extra mile. They have made my mother feel she is 'at home' and are always welcoming to us.
On one visit, I arrived to find all the top floor residents gathered in the kitchen to help the cook make a Christmas cake, a happy moment!
