The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Alinthia House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Alinthia House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.915 for Alinthia House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.915

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alinthia House Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 1.4 positive Reviews (7 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 1.4 Target Reached = 1

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

Alinthia House Care Home provided a caring environment for my aunty. The owners and staff were wonderful, yet professional. They reassured both my aunt and myself at all times also in times of need. It is a small care home, which meant my aunty got to know the owners and staff well, even if she didn't remember their names.

My 91-year-old mother fell ill early 2016 and was admitted to hospital with a stomach bug which turned out to be pneumonia after a week she was sent home, after a day she was back in again. The care from the local hospital was disgusting mum rapidly went down hill she had given up . After visiting at least 6 care homes we met the owners of Alinthia House Care Home the manager said give me three months and I'll get her back to her old self, they have been fantastic and she has regained 8lbs eats, talks has her dignity back I can't believe how they turned her around. They are dedicated to caring as it should be. I can't praise them enough "well done".

Alinthia House Care Home was like a "home from home". Whenever we arrived the home had the beautiful aroma of home cooked food. Mum-in-law was always well dressed in clean clothes, with her hair done. The staff were polite, friendly and professional.
We travelled down from Lincoln to visit and were always offered a cup of tea on arrival. The size of the home allows individual care, and the little extra touches were lovely. Due to mum-in-law having cerebrovascular accident (stroke) she was chair bound and could not participate in any activities. Her skin integrity was excellent throughout her stay despite always being in a chair. Ergonomic equipment was always used and she had a suitable mattress.

Alinthia House provides an outstandingly warm, friendly, understanding and caring environment for its residents. Because it is small, it is able to give highly personalised attention to those living there, and thanks to the example provided by the owners and to the quality of the staff whom they employ, this it does with sensitivity, infinite patience and good humour.
Real effort is make to provide a stimulating and enjoyable experience for the residents, and there are always imaginative touches, (for example, table settings, entertainment, decorations) which make it feel far from "institutional". Nothing seems to be too much trouble. They really care.
