  • 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 4.435 for Yew Tree Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.435

  • 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 3.383 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Yew Tree Care Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.133

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

Reviewer Connection to Yew Tree Care Centre

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My mother has received dementia nursing care in the home for just over one year now. I've been visiting when I can (long journey) and I am always impressed by the staff who work here. Though mum is in the late stages of dementia and is not able to say very many words, they manage to communicate well with her, understand her sense of humour (which is amazingly still intact) and make her laugh and smile. They seem to be patient and kind in the way they look after her various needs. I'm very grateful for the affection and consideration they show as I know their work is both physically and mentally demanding. Despite often meeting resistance from mum (as she doesn't like to be moved, though it is necessary), they manage to cajole and soothe her into cooperating. The staff are also very considerate towards relatives, making them feel welcome, assisting them and taking time to discuss aspects of care. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to them for making a difficult time more bearable.

Mam is in the late stages of dementia and had been in her previous home for 4 years so it was a huge decision moving her to Yew Tree's Dementia Care Unit in December 2015. I have to say, it was the best decision I made. In just over two months the change in her is amazing. She is much more content, much more alert and using vocabulary I thought was long gone. Mam is proof that the environment along with person centred care is so very important in dementia care. A huge thank you to the very special team of staff on the Dementia Care Unit.
