    The Review Score of 8.260 for Plantation View 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 4.39 for Plantation View is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.39

    • 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 3.87 for Plantation View is calculated as follows:

      1. 5 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 5 Positive Reviews = 0.500

      3. (5 Positive Reviews ÷ 27 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.370

We chose Plantation View for a number of reasons. My father has vascular Degeneration and so the simple layout is great. Staff impressed us when we visited in September. The small number of residents was also a positive factor as we felt dad would find it easier to settle in. We did note the lack of shaver facilities but hoped that this could be remedied in the near future, likewise the lack of telephone point in the bedroom. The home was very clean and well cared for within limits of the age of the building and its recent history. Most important was the level of care. The activity co-ordinator had made great effort in the run up to Christmas with visits from school children, churches and Christmas party. Likewise bonfire night etc. We are looking forward to the future. Staff have all helped dad to settle at this difficult time.

I have no doubt Runwood Homes is a good and very well run care home. The staff do an excellent job and are very courteous at all times. I am so pleased my mother is in care at this care home because I know she is in an excellent situation. I know and have seen other care homes not a patch on R.H. Doncaster at Cantley. All the family are happy with Mum's care which means so much to us all. Thank you all.
