  • 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 4.875 for Courtenay House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.875

      • 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 4.181 for Courtenay House Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 8 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 8 Positive Reviews = 0.800

      3. (8 Positive Reviews ÷ 42 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.381

I am so happy that my dad is being looked after by such amazing staff. Very clean looking and staff are friendly. The care home assistant practitioner on shift was an extremely friendly and professional young woman and attended to all of my fathers care needs.

I found the home to be incredibly homely and welcoming, full of friendly staff and the admin and manager couldn't have been more helpful. It makes me feel at ease knowing my father-in-law is in good hands and being looked after.

My mother became a resident of Courtenay House last June, after suffering a stroke and another medical problem. She was made to feel very comfortable, and as a daughter, although looking after her for the last 12 years, I felt she was in a homely place, but allowed privacy, and also staff and qualified assistance is always at hand.
As a resident she has been happy, with her needs attended for, and the nearby medical practice very good, as a family we know she is being cared for nicely.

Mum has been for respite, when dad could no longer cope every effort was made to accommodate mum quickly. The staff were so welcoming when we arrived and moved swiftly to ensure mum was soon in her room, clean, comfortable and had a cup of tea.

From the outset, Courtenay House had always provided a warm, friendly and homely feel. My mother-in-law first came here on respite and it was the third home she had stayed in. When the time care for permanent care, it was an easy decision to make to settler here here. We have been informed at all times if there are any health issues. She is cared for as an individual, socialised during the day, despite her advanced dementia. She is always clean, fresh and taken care of. Her diet needs are monitored and updated as necessary. Very happy.

My mother has been in Courtenay House for 2 and a half years and has been wonderfully well looked after. However in the last few weeks my mother had a major stroke and the care has been exemplary. She died in the home on 7th September. The care in her last days could not have been improved upon. They looked after everything right until the end. They also looked after me, I never felt I was on my own. A great home.
