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.

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:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

(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

My mum has dementia and relies on the care 24/7. I visit at various times of day and so does my daughter. We always find her in good care. We are always welcomed by the staff and I sometimes visit with 2 greyhounds and everyone is very happy to see us. Mum used to own dogs and doesn't really know much but she likes to pat the dogs.

Review submitted from a Postal Card by B B (Wife of Resident/Service User) on Wednesday 8 June 2016. Review relates to May 2016.
My husband was a resident at Abbey Place for just over 2 years until his death in March 2016. Having researched for a suitable care home, mainly without success, we finally found Abbey Place. I visited my husband every day and always found the staff to be incredibly caring, treating all the residents with good humour, patience and respect. My husband had alzheimer's and was not always easy, but without exception he was helped to recover his good humour by humour, teasing, therapy with what he enjoyed and real affection.
