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 4.522 for The Hockeredge Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.522
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:
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.
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 3.463 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Hockeredge Care Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25
Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.213
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My stepdad is a resident at the Hockeredge, he has been a resident for a good few months now. So far we are really happy with the care he gets. Staff are very friendly, happy and caring, and nothing seems to be a problem. We visit every day and feel like we are welcome at any time, we are offered Tea/Coffee on pretty much every visit, this is lovely as my stepdad loves having a 'cuppa' with us.
The food is fantastic and cooked on-site, the cooks are often cooking cakes and biscuits for the residents in addition to the home cooked meals.
The rooms are lovely and are cleaned regularly to perfection!
Medication seems to be given on time (Refreshing change compared to other care homes we have experienced)
Currently we are really happy with the Hockeredge, and are looking forward to the refurbishments.
We are relieved he has now found somewhere where he is cared for, and his needs are meet on a daily basis - We can only say thank you.
