Reviews

8.9 Cherry Wood Grange Care Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.912)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Cherry Wood Grange Care 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherry Wood Grange Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 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 4.854 for Cherry Wood Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.854

  • 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 4.058 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherry Wood Grange Care Home 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.308

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

I did not want to leave my bungalow in Kent even though I was finding the going rather rough. My dear wife having passed away two years ago and the shakes getting so bad that sometimes I could not even make a cup of tea in the mornings and my legs getting worse. I, at last, listened to the reason of my niece and her husband who lived in Chelmsford and had the trouble of the Dartford crossing and the M25 to contend with to visit. With no children of my own, my niece was my nearest relative and a real gold mine for assistance. She spotted Cherry Wood being built and finally talked me into letting go and trying it. She came in and booked a room and took photographs of it to show me. I was transported one Sunday to view. Liked it and moved in on the 20th January. The best thing I have ever done for myself. The place is perfect.
Good food, good carers and within a week I was at home. The best thing I have ever done and the best place to come to. I am a fan of Cherry Wood.

My friend was the fourth person to move into this home which only opened in December 2017. I have been very impressed so far, with everything at Cherry Wood Grange. The receptionist is delightful, all the staff are courteous and caring, without being intrusive, and this is the only care home I have visited that doesn't feel institutionalised. My friend has settled well and has decided to stay long term. I think we have been extraordinarily lucky to find Cherry Wood Grange.

We could not be more satisfied with the care our relative is receiving from Cherry Wood Grange. The home is spotless, beautifully decorated, warm and friendly - all the staff are endlessly helpful and ensure we are kept up to date on our mum’s condition. She has a lovely little garden, fenced off but accessible to the main large, well maintained outdoor area. Her room is beautifully kept and assistance is provided as she needs it, and there are always activities arranged that interest her during the day. She has a phone in her room which she uses every day and we are made very welcome whenever we visit. She is gaining weight and always looks beautifully groomed thanks to her weekly hairdressing and manicure treatments. This is a lovely place which the whole family would heartily recommend.

It was daunting to select a brand new care home for my father, but the manager allayed any concerns when we visited before it was open. First impressions were that it was a hotel rather than a care home. The décor and furnishings were homely and of a high standard. It did not have the feel of being an institution, which was a fear of my father.
All the staff are friendly and show an interest in him as person. They do not rush away. He says “they are marvellous” and “can’t do enough for you – no matter what it is”. He speaks to about 20 different people each day, which is good for him and he also enjoys participating in the well-organised activities such as quizzes, news and views, playing cards and board games, seated exercises and painting “ladybird stones” for the garden. He says that food is excellent and plentiful and I have to agree as I joined him and other residents for a lovely Christmas Dinner. Importantly he says he feels safe.
We have hit the jackpot with Cherry Wood.
