The Review Score of 6.4 (maximum of 10) for The Limes is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Limes in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 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)
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 4.639 for The Limes is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.639
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 1.734 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Limes is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625
Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.217 , then divided by 2 = 0.109
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
The Limes has a Review Score of 6.4 (6.373) from 3 Reviews
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Peggy S (Daughter of Resident) on Monday 22 January 2018. Relates to November 2017.
I would give a good impression when describing 'The Limes' to anyone but I never make recommendations about anything.
When I last reviewed the home, I put good in each option as I think each option varies between good and excellent depending on circumstances. The same with the staff, some really are excellent.
My mum settled in well at 'The Limes' and was well cared for as they have the facilities to help the residents more easily.
Because of dementia, activities have to be kept simple and the staff work hard to help residents participate if they wish to and to organise seating and wheelchairs for watching entertainment and also sometimes being part of the entertainment. Charlie, the dog who visited was so very popular with my Mum, me and most of the other residents and staff and it is lovely to see how animated some residents become when seeing dogs, babies and children.
Thank you for the care you took of my mum to the end. I am so grateful.
How likely would you be to recommend The Limes? Neither Unlikely or Likely
Review submitted from a Postal Card by William F (Husband of Resident) on Monday 15 May 2017. Relates to April 2017.
There is always a warm welcome from all the staff. We have a dog "Charlie" who is allowed into the home. When Charlie meets with the people of The Limes she just brings happiness. Everyone loves Charlie our black lab. Mentioning Charlie is important because she brings so much happiness not only to my wife but others in the home.
How likely would you be to recommend The Limes? Extremely Likely
