Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.25 for Alvington House is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.25

  • 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 3.2 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alvington House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5 Target = 0.200

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

Reviewer Connection to Alvington House

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

My mother is very happy at 'Alvington House'. She feels well looked after and constantly tells me that the people at the home are very caring and considerate towards her. Although there are only 9 or so residents currently (out of a possible 25) that suits Mum as with her memory problems she can just about cope with that number of fellow residents. There are many get-togethers organised that keep her occupied, although there is always room for additional activities.

Average Rating:   4.6 out of 5

I think this is a nice home for my grandmother. I think the staff are always friendly and approachable. I would like to see more activities for the old people. Simple ideas as old music played some afternoons. Research has shown this can boost an old person up to be reminded of old time music. Old movies played two or three times a week or perhaps asking local scout, brownie or guide groups in some evenings to read poetry or sing. These things have little or no cost. I feel this would improve the home in a big way. I visit regularly and see little activity. My gran is often bored and needs to be encouraged at activities.
