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 5 for St Brelades is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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 3.135 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Brelades is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Helen S (Sister of Resident) on Sunday 22 January 2017. Relates to January 2017.
I cannot speak highly enough of this care home. It is a pleasure to visit my relative (sister-in-law) In the 3 months that she has been there, her appearance has changed from looking like a sad, frightened old lady on death row to something resembling a Hollywood film star. In her jumbled way, she tells us that she is happy and said "the hospital comes to you here" and "they let you do what you want".
I have visited many times and always found the atmosphere to be good.
The manager is an exceptional lady. All the staff are fantastic. They really do go the extra mile here and all without any fuss. We are extremely grateful for all that they do for us and our relative.
