a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for 306 Southend Road in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 1 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 4.917 for 306 Southend Road is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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:
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.
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.
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 4 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for 306 Southend Road is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 1 positive Reviews (5 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 1 Target = 1.000

The Bungalow provides a caring environment where residents are carers are like family; a safe and comfortable home for my brother.
He is treated with dignity and respect by all carers and family are welcome to visit at any time. He has a relaxing and comfortable room and his needs are always given highest consideration.
I cannot recommend The Bungalow highly enough to others with vulnerable family members. 5 stars!
