Reviews

7.3 Alan Atchison Residential Services has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.340)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Alan Atchison Residential Services is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Alan Atchison Residential Services in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 10 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)

  • 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 4.84 for Alan Atchison Residential Services is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.84

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alan Atchison Residential Services is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 2.2 positive Reviews (11 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 2.2 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

My uncle has complex needs and the staff are able to meet them professionally and with much care. My uncle has been at Davids Close for nearly 3 years and I have been able to relax in the knowledge that he is safe, well cared for, I know the staff go that extra mile for him. He is vulnerable and so it is important that his family are 100% confident about his care and we are. My uncle spends a lot of time asleep so when I visit on a weekly basis, I have really got to know the staff and feel happy that he is in the correct environment.

The staff ensure he has the best quality of life he can, considering his complex needs. For example, visiting his old workplace to see his friends, going to day centres where he needs much support, but still going even if he is asleep in his wheelchair in case he wakes and can enjoy some of the visit.

A lot of thought goes into the lives of each resident, to ensure they enjoy life as much as they can and they are not just left around the house.
