Howards has a Review Score of 5 (5.000)
The Review Score of 5 (maximum of 10) for Howards is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Howards in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 5 for Howards 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Howards is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Anne S (Daughter of Resident) on Friday 30 October 2015. Relates to October 2015.
Sadly my mother only spent the last four months of her life at Howards. I had been reluctant to move her but financially it was necessary. She blossomed at Howards, we were able to reconnect with her in a way that we had been unable to in ten years. Howards brought out the best in her, she was happy again and able to interact. Despite Mum's advanced dementia, the care and patience she was shown was extraordinary. I can never begin to thank the management and all the staff enough for their input. I could not begin to recommend Howards too highly, people and care are paramount and the way Mum was looked after was exemplary. It felt like home from home, she had a lovely room overlooking the garden which gave her so much pleasure and spent the summer days sitting out in the sunshine. All the food was home and freshly cooked, the entertainment and activities were great and there were no hidden extras. The communication was first class, we always got to see and talk to the same members of staff, continuity was second to none, especially towards the end. I cannot sing Howards' praises too highly.
