This Review Score of 8.417 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.717 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 3.7 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 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 8.417 for Homewood is based on 5 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 4.717 for Homewood is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.717

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 3.7 for Homewood is calculated as follows:

      1. 5 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 5 Positive Reviews = 0.500

      3. (5 Positive Reviews ÷ 50 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.200

I received respite care from 28th October to 15th November following hip surgery. I would unhesitatingly recommend Homewood. I live only 300 yards from Homewood so I knew of its existence, but I did not have any knowledge of the establishment. I was delighted when I was accepted for the short stay. Whilst at Homewood, I happened to contact my GP who gave a glowing recommendation of Homewood as being the best home in Leamington Spa. Particularly the staff were very very good as was the food - it was five star. In terms of cost, it was expensive but I would still attend again.

Homewood Care Home staff looked after my father on the nursing floor from 2012-2013 when he was very ill with heart disease (complicated by falls and leg ulcers). He died there in April 2013 (aged 92) and could not have had better care - so kind and compassionate. In January 2013 my mother (aged 92) was admitted to the residents floor with some dementia problems - unable to care for herself any more. She is 94 and a half and the staff are very patient and kind. The staff have also been very caring towards my sister and I and all the family.

Our family has been associated with MHA Homewood since May 2012 when my father became a resident aged 91. He was cared for wonderfully being very ill for his last six months he died there in April 2013. We were all treated in a very caring and kind manner together with many staff coming in to visit my father in his final hours. My mother came to Homewood in January 2013 before his death and is still a resident. She has very different needs now aged 94 and staff are very good with her. She can be very difficult. The day of my fathers funeral Homewood were exceptional allowing us free use of the facilities for family after. A carer came with my mother to the crematorium to help my sister and I. The week my father came to Homewood it was my parents 70th Wedding Anniversary and a special lunch was arranged for us - Wonderful

Following my friends hospitalisation in January 2013 I was pleased to see her settled at Homewood for, as a missionary and committed Christian, was pleased to find a home with a Christian ethos able to take her and care for her. The home seemed to me to do a good job of looking after her and although she had difficulty they seemed to help and support her with dignity right to the end.
