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.

Review submitted from a Postal Card by John R (Father of Resident) on Thursday 5 January 2017. Relates to December 2016.
I find the general appearance and comfort of this care home much improved since refurbishment over the last year or two. The staff are kind and attentive to the residents, especially to my daughter who is very severely handicapped and has special needs. Previously there was a weakness with admin and vital paperwork, I understand with recent staff changes this has been amended.
