  • 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 4.75 for Adeline House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.75

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 3.75 for Adeline House Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 5 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 5 Positive Reviews = 0.500

      3. (5 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.250

My mother has lived at Adeline House for a number of years and has, to my relief, always been content there. The facilities have generally been good with certain exceptions, such as poor recovery of laundry and lack of a professional chef, but since the appointment of the new manager, the day to day running of the home has improved immeasurably. The home is clean, without odour. The food is much improved. The home appears full of love and happiness. My mother is happy and content, therefore, I am happy and content. Thank you for that appointment!

In a year when I had breast cancer, my father developed pneumonia and died on the 15th of August, it was devastating to be told in November that my my mum had terminal stomach cancer. It was decided that the 24 hour care of Adeline House was our best option.
From our first visit we felt the caring and kindness that we would receive day and night from the wonderful staff. They went out of their way to spend time with my mum and me. We were given plenty of information, various food was tried in an effort to tempt my mum. She was nursed in an atmosphere of gentleness, patience and understanding, from everyone.
The last few weeks of my mums life were so hard for us as a family but they would have been harder without Adeline House and it's caring staff. The staff would say it was "what they were there for".
It was, but they did so much more, my mum died on the 17th of December.

My mother has been in Adeline House at Thorne for several weeks suffering form a severe stroke which has disabled her severely. The staff are brilliant and they all have a warm, caring attitude. Every time I have visited Adeline House, I have witnessed the staff treating her with respect and dignity. The home is always clean and tidy which gives us confidence. Thank you so much Adeline and all the staff.

My mum has been very poorly through out the last few years and has had multiple hospital admission with my mums condition rapidly worsening. We felt that my mum could not reside in in her own home, due to needing continuous care. So I took it on myself to contact Adeline House to see if they had a bed on respite, which they had. My mum is so happy in Adeline House. The level of care and support both my mum and myself receive is brilliant. They meet all my mums needs 24 hours a day. All the staff are so caring and always go above and beyond.
