Reviews

8.3 Victoria House has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.291)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Victoria House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Victoria House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 2 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 4.708 for Victoria House is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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 3.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Victoria House 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.333

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

This home is amazing. There is a happy and caring atmosphere and nearly always something going on organised by the activities manager. There is a lot of laughter and the residents obviously care about each other.
The staff are very kind and helpful and the standard of care is extremely high.
It may not look very posh because it isn't a purpose built facility and it must be very difficult keeping it so clean and smelling nice. What goes on inside the buildings is excellent.
We are very lucky to have found it at a time when they had a vacancy.
