  • 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 4.583 for Alton House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alton House Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    2. Target of 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target = 0

Reviewer Connection to Alton House Care Home

  • Resident / Service User
  • Son of Resident/Service User

My mother has been a resident for just over a year. In the time she has been there her overall health has improved and she is a more sociable person. This has been achieved by the staff and management team. Their interaction with the residents is excellent a shoulder to cry on or laughter when needed is always there. There are regular activities and functions where residents, staff and family members can join in and enjoy. I have noted that the management and staff attend regular training with respect to all aspects of care and also they are enrolled on NVQs. I am content that my mother is in the best place possible for her care, a well run home with friendly and caring staff led by an efficient and professional manager.

I entered Alton House direct from hospital, I had been bedridden for a considerable time, and felt very sorry for myself. I could not walk, and I thought that life wasn't worth living. What a welcome I received, two of the carers greeted are me as though I was a much loved relative, and as I couldn't walk told me that I would be dancing with them in one week! In fact it took two weeks! (shame). All the carers were the same - my welfare was important to all. Now I have been here two years, and the carers have become firm friends who really care, it's not just a job to them, it's a vocation and not too formal either. The rooms are comfortable and clean. My room has just been redecorated, with me being involved every step of the way. Activities are excellent under the control of our very friendly organiser. As for the meals - anything I could say would be an understatement! food is excellent and well cooked. The house manager is very friendly and well liked. She takes an active role in all the activities, but her office door is never closed to residents or staff. What is more she takes instant action on any issue raised. The night staff are excellent and look in on us at regular intervals during the night to make sure that all is well. In short, I find Alton House a home from home. The staff are well trained and polite and always ready for a laugh. Alton House is a happy place to live!!!!
