Reviews

9.4 Abbeyfield Winnersh has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.386)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Abbeyfield Winnersh is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.983 for Abbeyfield Winnersh is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 4.403 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abbeyfield Winnersh is based on 5 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.403

  • 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 living at Abbeyfield Winnersh since the opening last summer. She had moved a few times, being unhappy in the homes she lived in before that. I was delighted that she settled in so quickly.
She absolutely loves living there. Genuinely!
She has made a lot of friends among the other residents. She loves a good gossip!
The staff are wonderful. They are so warm and loving towards the residents and never seem too busy to stop and chat or offer a cuppa.
They have a group of volunteers who come in regularly and help bring joy to the lives of those who call it home.
The design is great: No straight corridors and no closed doors. The residents are free to go where they want and when. They feel that freedom too, which makes all the difference. Yet the place is secure, so they are safe.
I am so relieved to have found somewhere so fantastic for my mother.
I cannot praise it highly enough.

We as a family were so worried when Grandmas dementia got that bad that we had to consider a care home as you hear so many horror stories. However, Abbeyfield has been just excellent. It's a great place with lovely, attentive staff, good food and perfectly designed for anyone living with dementia. Now she is being well looked after, Grandma seems more relaxed and a lot happier and it's once again a pleasure to visit her.

A lovely home. That is what it Abbeyfield is - a home.
The team are excellent they offer fabulous care but importantly they treat her like a person. They engage and encourage and are genuinely interested in her. To know she is not only physically cared for but also emotionally is incredibly important.
