  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published 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 9.926 for Gables Residential Care Home is based on 18 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 4.926 for Gables Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (200 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.926

    • 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 Gables Residential Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 18 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 18 Positive Reviews = 1.800 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (18 Positive Reviews ÷ 20 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.800 (maximum score = 1)

My Mother was lucky to be a resident at the Gables for a 2 year 6 month period before taking ill and eventually passing away in March 2016. Mum loved the Gables so much that our small family agreed it was the finest time in her life. She was so cared for in so many ways, not just health and well being but the love, kindness and laughter the staff showed to her was second to none. The home is spotless, rooms cleaned every day, the food was a joy and the entertainment they put on for the residents is simply amazing. Nothing was ever a problem for the staff, it's just a wonderful place with wonderful people!!!!

A stunning, warm and friendly home where nothing is too much trouble. Unlike some homes I have visited, there is no "smell" except for the smell of home baking! The staff are professional but friendly and treat the residents and their families like their own. There is always activities for the residents to participate in and Christmas is a never-ending month of family events.

Gables is more than excellent. If you need a Dr the Dr calls within a day. If you needed to go to hospital everything is done to make you comfortable about it. The staff on duty make sure that ambulances are called, knows the reason and how poorly the patient is when called in an emergency night or day. I have been sent to hospital twice both with angina and the second time for a lung infection where I stayed for 6 nights and could not wait to get home to Gables.

I am a resident and have been for 7 years. I could consider this place as my home and the staff and manager are wonderful. They all treat us with respect. I don't know what I would have done if it had not been for 'Gables Residential Care Home' I was lost before I came here. They helped me.

The home has a very welcoming atmosphere and is light, bright and airy! (and no smells!)
Always fresh flowers - fresh fruit - and a caring atmosphere. The manager is always available and nothing is too much trouble. The turnover of staff is very low and it appears to be a real team! Above all my mum is very happy! She decided with another resident - it was the next best thing to living at home independently. Food is lovely and plentiful, furnishings great, a real home from home and exceptional care.

My mother has only been at The Gables for 6 weeks after a traumatic 5 months but has settled quite quickly. I was very impressed with the initial visit and first impressions stay with you! Staff (without exception) have been friendly and helpful whenever I have visited. The whole atmosphere is homely and friendly and aromas of cooking biscuits/cakes is always good!

Our mum has been living at The Gables for two months. In that time we have seen her settle and relax and become more like 'our mum; again. The home has a very homely feel to it, where the staff remain professional and friendly and an atmosphere of trust, happiness and real caring is fostered. Nothing is too much trouble and as a result the residents and staff remain cheerful. It is a real treat to visit her! and a real comfort to know she is happy, safe and enjoying life again.

Since my brother began his care at Gables the transformation in him has been very noticeable. Regular care and medications have seen him put on some of the weight previously lost and his general well bring has really improved. The Management and staff at the Gables are first class with really good food and comfort of rooms provided. There is a general "feel good factor" about the place with great care and understanding shown and given to all the residents. My sister and I thoroughly recommend this home.

Keep up the wonderful work.
