Reviews

9.3 St Anthony's has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.333)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for St Anthony's is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Anthony's in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.333 for St Anthony's is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.333

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Anthony's is based on 5 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). 5 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.

My aunt moved into St Anthony's almost 3 years ago and I have visited here on a weekly basis ever since. I have always found the home to be warm, clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly and professional putting the resident's well-being first. There is regular entertainment including sing-a-longs and quizzes. For those able to attend they have an annual summer trip to Ruislip Lido for a pub lunch, an August BBQ where relatives and friends are welcome, a trip into Watford town for Christmas shopping followed by afternoon tea and cakes. It's good to visit and know when leaving that my aunt is safe, happy and well cared for.

Home is run very efficiently. Lovely welcoming staff. Not the most up-to-date furniture wise but certainly adequate for needs. Have been accommodating for my father who was wrongly discharged from the hospital. Good choice of food and accommodate likes/dislikes on daily basis.

When my husband and myself first went to the home the owners and staff greeted us very warmly. Every time we visited, nothing was too much trouble. The home has a very warm and friendly atmosphere and is like a home from home. The rooms are all a good size and staff are all aware of the people being residents or visitors coming and going and always greet you by name. Each resident has their own carer. I myself, cannot fault the home about anything.

I can only speak for my Aunt but she appears to be as happy as I've ever known her to be. The staff are always warm and welcoming. The home is clean and warm and the rooms (as far as I can see) are highly satisfactory. With some very challenging circumstances at times, it is my belief that the home functions very well indeed and the residents that I meet seem very contented.
