Current Reviews

9.9 Mid Meadows has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.904)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Mid Meadows is based on 16 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.904 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.904 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.904 for Mid Meadows is based on 16 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.904 for Mid Meadows is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.904

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Mid Meadows is calculated as follows:

      1. 16 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 16 Positive Reviews = 1.600 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (16 Positive Reviews ÷ 21 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.524 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • Before 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk only accepted Recommendations (positive comments only) and the Ratings were limited to Excellent, Good & Satisfactory. These are marked up as Recommendations.

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

My wife has been at Mid Meadows for 12 -13 weeks. The care home is first class. The care has been brilliant, and the food she has had is very good. The people who work at Mid Meadows have picked me up at home and took me home. Thanks for this.

Thank you for you comments Kevin. We are so glad you are happy here!

I've been at Mid Meadows for about six years. I wish I was able to be in my own home but I know I could not cope with this. I am happy with the way things are, staff are friendly and helpful, they make it a pleasant place to be. Management are helpful and help me to sort out any issues I have.

Thank you Bruce, you are correct in that we can never replace 'home' but that will never stop us trying.

I come here every year because I enjoy being here. I want to move here to live all the time and make this my home. Staff are helpful and friendly. The manager helps me when I want help.
