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.

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:
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 Larkswood Residential Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Gillian on Friday 20 January 2017. Relates to January 2017.
We visited my aunt for the first time in her new home. We received an extremely warm welcome and were shown around various rooms before we went to see her in the lounge. All staff were very friendly and made us tea!
Our aunt looked well cared-for, was well dressed, happy and relaxed. They gave advice on clothing needs.
The building is attractively furnished and spotlessly clean. Our first impressions were very positive and we felt confident leaving her in their care. I had phoned a few times before we visited and each time the opportunity to speak to my aunt was readily offered. As we live a four hour journey away all these positive vibes are so important to us.
