Overview

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Villa Adastra is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Villa Adastra in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.8 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)

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 4.864 for Villa Adastra is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 44 Ratings = 4.864

  • 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 1.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Villa Adastra is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250 , then divided by 2 = 0.125

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

6.6 Villa Adastra has a Review Score of 6.6 (6.614) from 4 Reviews

My mum moved into Villa Adastra in March 2016 having been in hospital for 3 months. A lot of care was taken in settling her in and we, her family, were also treated with warmth. This made a difficult transition for us much easier. My dad visits every day and is welcomed wholly by the staff. My mum is happy, settled, nurtured and I would say loved by the staff. She is able to practice her faith which is very important to her (but this is not forced on those living there). I am very happy with Villa Adastra and highly recommend it for those with Dementia/Alzheimer's.

From first walking in to Villa Adastra and initially meeting members of management and the care team I was comforted in the way they talked and explained things to me. My mother has been there over a month now and seems to go from strength to strength. All the team leaders and carers seem to have a genuine concern for the residents and this seems more than evident. All I can say is "Thank God"" that we found this truly amazing home.

I was very hesitant about visiting my aunt as I have experience of a number of care homes, which I know would never have suited her. I left Villa Adastra content my aunt would be treated with respect, love and care that an affectionate 99 year old deserves.
The surroundings are superb but most importantly the staff were wonderful. Everyone was treated as an individual and appeared valued.
Nothing was too much trouble, I cannot thank everyone enough.

Villa Adastra is a light, bright home with lovely well kept gardens both at the front and back (not depressing like some homes we visited). The staff are all really friendly and helpful. They all know the residents by their first name and treats them with dignity and cheerfulness. My mother is quite a fussy eater but enjoys all the food. She has alzheimer's and gets lost easily- having trouble finding her room, so they asked her to choose a colour for her door. She now has a bright green door which makes it easier to find!!
