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.

Reviewer Connection to Lickey Hills

My father-in-law was given a place at Lickey Hills about two and a half years ago. He had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and dementia. Every since he moved to the home the whole family have commented on how pleased we are to be fortunate enough to have him there. He is always clean shaven and hygienically clean. His room is regularly cleaned, and there are always someone on hand if he or we need help. He is obviously well fed and cared for, which is a weight off my mother-in-law as she tried but couldn't care for him at home. We would recommend Lickey Hills to any family who have to make the difficult decision about a loved one. Well done.
