Reviews

9.8 Mid Meadows has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.798)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Mid Meadows is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mid Meadows in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.798 for Mid Meadows is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.798

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Mid Meadows is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target Reached = 1

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

I have been here since the summer. I didn't want to come here, but when I got here I loved it so much I don't want to go home. The carers are nice and helpful. They are very kind to me. I'm going to see the Michael Jackson tribute and the Dream Boys with the carers. I'm looking forward to it. The activities are very good. I was very lonely at home but here I have people to talk to all the time.

My wife has been at Mid Meadows for 12 -13 weeks. The care home is first class. The care has been brilliant, and the food she has had is very good. The people who work at Mid Meadows have picked me up at home and took me home. Thanks for this.

When visiting our daughter we have always found all the staff are pleasant and very helpful. The standard of hygiene and care are excellent. The food she receives is always very varied and of high quality. Because of the high quality and care that my daughter receives here we feel happy to leave her here.
