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?'

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.

Reviewer Connection to St John's Home
Review submitted from a Postal Card by Lara G (Volunteer) on Monday 27 March 2017. Relates to January 2017.
I've been volunteering at St John's for about five months and it's made a really good impression on me.
I spend a lot of time talking to the residents and they seem really happy with the quality of care, entertainment (films, quizzes, bingo)food etc.
I think the most important thing is that the residents feel comfortable and happy and everyone at St John's is really trying to achieve this.
Because of this I have really loved my time volunteering and getting to know the lovely and interesting people at St John's.
