    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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Albany Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = -0.25

From the moment we walk through the doors it was like home. The staff went out of their way to make us all comfortable. I would like to wish the Albany and staff all the best for the future.
Nothing seems to much for the staff or the manager.
I was made welcome by all staff as I walked through the doors to see my mother in law. My daughter and I were treated with respect from every one, if I had to give stars it would be 5 KEEP THE GREAT WORK GOING GUYS well done.
