  • 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 4.615 for Carders Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.615

      • 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 4.16 for Carders Court Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 12 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 12 Positive Reviews = 1.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (12 Positive Reviews ÷ 150 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.160

My Mum went into Carders court in a very bad way after being taken to A&E. During her stay with the help of all the staff she was brought back to her old self and was able to go back into her own home and continue to live independently.

Care of my mother

My 93 year old mother suffers from vascular dementia and has been in Carders Court for 2+ years. She has always been well cared for and treated with respect and dignity. From my point of view I would recommend Carders Court without any hesitation.

I couldn't have asked for a better home for my mum. When we made the extremely difficult decision to put mum into a residential home, the staff at Carders Court were so understanding and are always so lovely and towards mum. As mum suffers from Alzheimers disease, she has lost a lot of her personal care ability however the staff there always make sure her hair is done and nails painted, just hoe she would have wanted it.

My mum has been a resident in Carders Court for nearly 4 years now. Initially in Garfield and then in Brookfield, where all staff are lead by a manager who along with them treat the residents with kindness and dignity. Therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending Carders Court to any potential occupant.

My Mum has been in Brookfield at Carder's Court for 7 years and suffers from Alzheimer's. Over the years the staff have looked after Mum with care, compassion and with lots of humour. At times it is difficult to keep going to see her but I know that she is well looked after and they contact me immediately if there is an issue. The Unit is kept clean and has been re-decorated on several occasions over the years. It is like a family! Families are made to feel welcome on the Unit and can visit unannounced. It is never easy to see a loved one enter a care home but I believe the staff on Brookfield do make it as easy as possible and welcome residents and family.
I have recommended Brookfield to friends and one contacted me and said that it was the best decision he could have made.

My husband is a resident on Arkwright House. I would like to say a big thank you to every member of staff who made Christmas day such an enjoyable event. Nothing was too much trouble. The Chef at Carders Court is excellent and is to be commended. I am very happy with the care provided, not only to my husband, but also to the support the staff show to me.
