  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.083 for Hillcrest Care Home - Larchwood Care Group is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.083

  • 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 3.096 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hillcrest Care Home - Larchwood Care Group is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.096

Reviewer Connection to Hillcrest Care Home - Larchwood Care Group

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    1

My mother has lived at Hillcrest for 3 years and during that time we have been able to make mums room lovely and cosy, repainting in the colours that she chose, getting her a lovely comfy bed and armchair, bringing lots of things from her home so that her surroundings are familiar to her, so important to a person with Dementia. Her room is like a little bedsit with her own fridge and kettle so that she can still 'entertain' guests. Mum had always had dogs and cats and felt very sad and lonely when she arrived, the Registered Manager recognised this and knew of an elderly cat who needed a home so she arranged for the cat to come to Hillcrest and asked mum to 'look after' her; she now lives with mum in her room. The manager knows all her residents and genuinely enjoys spending time with them and her staff have worked really hard to ensure that the home has a lovely atmosphere. Relatives are free to come and go at any time, share meals with their loved ones and be part of their lives.
