Reviews

8.5 The Whitecroft has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.490)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for The Whitecroft 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Whitecroft in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.722 for The Whitecroft is calculated as follows: ( (26 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 3.768 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Whitecroft is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.268

  • 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 The Whitecroft

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

Mum came to the home in February 2015; she settled in remarkably well. That was due to the care, kindness and support of all the staff at The Whitecroft. They put her at ease and were on hand to make her feel part of a family. Mum made many friends and joined in with all activities until she became too ill. The staff wanted to care for mum for end of life but she died before that could happen.

The Whitecroft provided mum not only with excellent care but a feeling, for her, as she had a new home. She loved the staff; their compassion and care was first class. They also gave my father when he was alive, support and care. He visited her every day and was always warmly greeted and treated with care and dignity. I would have no hesitation in recommending your care home to anyone who needs care and can no longer live in their own home.
