Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.667 for The Liberty of Earley House is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.667

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.143 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Liberty of Earley House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.143

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

My mother was a resident of The Liberty of Earley House for approximately 9 months and enjoyed living there. She was looked after in the best possible way and was always encouraged to take part in a variety of activities that they thought she would enjoy. All the staff had compassion and a courteous manner in accepting their client's limitation. They always treated my mother with a lot of respect. Catering arrangement was also very good and catered well for all dietary requirements.

Overall I could not fault the management or how the unit was being run. In my opinion, I will support the reference "It's just like The Hilton Hotel but without a swimming pool".

I write to thank you all for the wonderful way in which you cared for my mother during her time at Liberty of Earley and particularly in her final days. We as a family could not have asked for better care and concern which I believe went beyond the ‘call of duty’.
My mother enjoyed her time with you all and her final years were full of new friendships and stimulating activity. Thank You.

What a wonderful place. Apart from the good facilities and activities and lovely gardens the staff go above and beyond the normal care of duty to residents. There is a lovely happy atmosphere in the home and the staff are always on hand to help. Both my parents are residents here and my father has been very ill recently. The care and attention they have given him has been second to none and he is content and happy. For my mother it is a relief and blessing that he is receiving such good care in this final years. When family members visit the staff are always pleased to see us and are delightful and friendly. If you are looking for somewhere for your parents please consider this home, it is just wonderful. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Sept 2016

It was only after my mum had been in Liberty of Earley for some time that we realised how much her life had improved. Widowed for many years, she had long professed to be very happy living alone, but we found that now her conversation no longer revolved around long-ago family issues: she was involved with the doings of the home, and developed many friendships with the lovely staff. Mum was capable of being harshly critical, but we and others that she communicated with, were very pleased that she was so positive about LoE, and that her last years were as happy as her health permitted.
We always found the staff thoroughly obliging, very conscientious, endlessly kindhearted, warmly friendly to us, and hugely supportive of both mum in her terminal decline and ourselves in what we found emotionally difficult times. We learned much from them, and continued to appreciate their loving-kindness afterwards, as we cleared her flat, and at her funeral.
We cannot speak too highly of them.
