Overview

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Abbey Gate is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abbey Gate in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.526 for Abbey Gate is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.526

  • 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 3.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abbey Gate is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 0.250

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

7.8 Abbey Gate has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.776) from 8 Reviews

My aunt has been at Abbey Gate for several years and I have taken my father and my mum to visit her on numerous occasions. The staff have always been friendly and have always welcomed us.
They appear to have a strong relationship with the residents, more like a family than simply carers. The home is warm, light and airy and as welcoming as the staff.

I am an occasional visitor to the care home where my last surviving Aunt lives. From a layman's perspective, I am continually impressed by the appearance and attitude of the staff, the cleanliness of the home and the care which is given to my aunt.

My mother-in-law is receiving excellent appropriate care. She is relaxed and content in her environment where she is treated appropriately and with respect. All the staff are very caring and do all they can to ensure her comfort and well being.

My father in law was a resident at Abbey Gate for two years until his recent death, and I have nothing but praise for the home and all the staff. His room was spacious and clean, the food was excellent and he was always well cared for. All the staff are generous, attentive and sympathetic and this is just a generally well run home both front and back of house, and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it.
