The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Amber Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Amber Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.529 for Amber Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 140 Ratings = 4.529

  • 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 4.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Amber Court Care Home is based on 6 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered beds ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target = 0.909

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

My Father was only living in Amber Court for 10 days before he died, but during his short time there the service and treatment was exemplary.
He needed privacy, comfort and dignity, that was delivered in spades by Amber Court. They were absolutely fantastic.

My mother was only in the home for 4 weeks but had excellent care and treatment right up to her death. I and my two brothers all thought everything was excellent.

Well my sister-in-law was unable to tend to herself anymore and the staff made her so welcome, she said I don't know why I didn't come sooner. She has been in hospital a couple of times, they visited her and when she came back. They looked after her, her meals in her room. As I visit a lot I see the care the staff take of all the people.

My mother spent her final 3 months at Amber Court. Out of all of the homes we visited, Amber Court stood head and shoulders above the rest. I have nothing but praise for all of the staff here. They were friendly, caring, considerate and compassionate towards my mother and the family. During her final weeks, the staff ensured she received the best care possible, nothing was too much trouble for them. Although my mother has now passed away, I am so grateful for the short time she spent at Amber Court. On days where we were unable to visit, it was good to know that she was in excellent hands. Mum always had kind words for all of the staff. They made her feel welcome and more importantly, treated her like a real person, not just a resident. We all feel extremely lucky that we managed to get my mum a room here, and I will be grateful for all that the staff did for us for the rest of my life. Amber Court and all of the staff cannot be praised enough. Thank you for everything you have done.

The staff at Amber Court at very friendly and efficient, although it has to be said that some are better than others with regard to residents privacy. The catering is very good, the food is hot and tasty with choices for both lunch and tea. The timing of meals could be better; breakfast is at 9.00AM, lunch 12.00PM noon and tea is 4.00PM. The gap between breakfast and tea is too long.

J hirst, Marketing at Amber Court Care Home responded to this review on 05 Jan 2016:

Thank you for your feedback we would like to reiterate that snacks and drinks are available through the night.

My daughter has special needs so I was very apprehensive about her living anywhere but home, but she has settled well and is happy. This is important to us. We feel we have been very lucky to have found this place it is next best thing to home.

Since moving into Amber Court staff have made sure I am well looked after and I have everything I need. I enjoy the shows the home put on and the trip to the zoo and round the lights.

Everyone at the care home has been most helpful and supportive and really good with my daughter who has downs syndrome and can be difficult to understand at times, she has settled in well and seems quite happy which is very important at this difficult time. It has proven to be the next best place to home.
