The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for The Island Residential Home 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Island Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 The Island Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.333

  • 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 3.544 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Island Residential Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.294

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

The staff warmly welcomed me with every visit to my mum including offers of a cuppa with an update regarding my mum.
I witnessed how kind, caring and attentive staff were in making every effort to meet the needs of residents in a cheerful and friendly manner despite a difficult and demanding role.
As my mum has dementia, it was not possible for her to comment on the Island but she seemed settled with no signs of distress and maintained her appetite which is always a good sign. I did chat with other residents who said how lovely the home is and how happy they are there.
The period of my mum staying at the Island was a difficult one, having to make decisions about her long term needs but after talking to several staff, they were very understanding and provided sound advice and reassurance. The manager was also extremely helpful and supportive which was much appreciated.
Yes, the interior does look shabby and in need of an update but the care I can not fault & that was more important to me. So thank you, everyone, for your kindness and hard work.

B Dhaliwal, Registered Manager at The Island Residential Home responded to this review on 06 Feb 2017:

Thanks, Andrea S, it was a pleasure to care for your Mother during the short respite. We understand how difficult choosing the right care home is.

We are currently redecorating our interior and hope that the current residents enjoy their newly chosen colour themes.

Since I came here straight from hospital, I was in a very bad way health wise, as well as my mental health. Since Jan 2016 the home has helped me in many ways. Helping me with some of my problems regarding my medical and mental health. I'm not quite there yet but with their help, I'm looking forward to the years to come!
