The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for The Headington Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Headington Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 4.797 for The Headington Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.797

  • 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:

    1. 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.

    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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Headington Care Home is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered beds ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.417

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Over a period of six years I have experienced the provision of 3 care homes for my parents. It is only Headington Care Home that I would wish to praise. Leadership (or a good manager) is key to setting standards, attitudes and values in the staffing. The leadership here shows commitment, passion and joy and inspires many of the younger staff to further their training. I have witnessed the genuine time and compassion given to those in her care and her welcoming positive approach to their relatives. Headington Care Home will be highly recommended by my family.

The staff looked after my cousin for many years in a safe environment. Especially throughout his last days he was treated with dignity. His children and the rest of the family were allowed the time and space to spend quality time with him. The staff we were in regular contact with were exceptional, including the coordinator, the staff nurse and another staff member for her support and understanding.

The carers at The Headington Care Home always go the extra mile and it is obvious that they really do care for and understand the needs of all the residents. My father had been in a number of homes before arriving at The Headington Care Home and it is such a relief to know that he is well cared for in a clean and welcoming environment, where the staff are always cheerful and attentive.

My father was admitted to the Headington Care Home after his behaviour deteriorated. At his previous establishments he had been heavily sedated and was listless and unable to communicate. Since he has been at Headington his life has been transformed - though still very ill with advanced dementia he is animated, laughs and smiles and is demonstrably happy. This is due almost entirely to the quality of care he has received which has been nothing short of exceptional in every respect.
