Reviews

9.3 Elmcroft has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.286)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Elmcroft 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Elmcroft in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.786 for Elmcroft is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.786

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Elmcroft is based on 6 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 beds ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.500

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

First month and Mum looks fantastic... considering. She is happy, her skin looks a whole lot better and she has a new best friend - a fellow resident. The staff are fantastic, leave it to the professionals I say. Wish I were moving in there myself! Thank you!

On arrival I had a very warm welcome from the manager and staff. I was treated very well and had more than enough food to eat with two hot meals a day.
The staff were very helpful and the day and night nurses gave me my medication on time. The room was spacious and comfortable.
I was sorry to leave but will be returning in August for ten days which I am looking forward to very much. Thank you.

This care home was excellent and we felt confident that our mother would be well looked after by professional staff. The manager and all the staff were very friendly, attentive and caring. We can't praise the staff highly enough.

From the beginning we have found the staff caring, helpful, cheerful and nothing is too much trouble. Mum settled very quickly and loves the company. She rarely spends much time in her room. Activities are many and varied and she likes to feel involved. Attention to detail by staff is excellent.
Mum has her lipstick and perfume offered to her and likes choosing the days clothes. The food is excellent and mum has regained weight and generally looks more relaxed and happy. I am made to feel welcome whenever I visit. Well done to the manager and staff!
