Reviews

6.6 Shaftesbury House Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 6.6 (6.564)

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Shaftesbury House Residential Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Shaftesbury House Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.117 for Shaftesbury House Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (39 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.117

  • 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 2.447 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Shaftesbury House Residential Care Home is based on 5 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 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0.893 , then divided by 2 = 0.447

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

Our dad has been at this home for just over a year now. Right from the time he walked through the door he was made extremely welcome, safe and comfortable. Staff are very attentive and share his passion for sport with him.
In addition they are very accommodating over his needs and requests. His room has recently been updated with a brand new en-suite. We always find a friendly welcome from everybody.

My mother is very well cared for and the staff are very caring. In an ideal world residents would have more individual attention although I understand we are not in an ideal world. As more residents tend to be suffering from dementia, perhaps more stimulation would be good but I understand this would be an extra expense. Staff are extremely caring.

When my mother was in hospital. I has to find temporary respite care as quickly as possible. As soon as I walked into the home I was struck by how friendly, bright, homely and clean as was. My mother has become a permanent resident and is very happy there.
All staff are very friendly and welcoming. My mother receives excellent care and is kept busy with lots of activities. Whenever I have had any questions everyone is always so helpful. There is a happy atmosphere there and I always witness residents being treated with compassion.
