Reviews

8.3 Pottles Court has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.294)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Pottles Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pottles Court 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.

  • 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 5 for Pottles Court is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.294 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pottles Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 3.4 positive Reviews (17 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3.4 Target = 0.294

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

Reviewer Connection to Pottles Court

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    3

Having struggled viewing local homes for my father of 86 battling with Alzheimer's. We landed upon Pottles Court in Exminster.
The deputy manager greeted us with a warm understanding manner, making us feel so at ease at such a horrible confusing, guilty time. Places at Pottles are always in high demand and at no point did we feel any pressure to commit to a room. The journey she took us on from suggesting rest bite to give us the reassurance somebody else could take care of dad as well as we could, was the key to making us understand he was in the best place.
Through out the year dad has been a resident, we have witnessed how the excellent care and understanding they provide has settled him in nicely.
Seeing daily, the same hard working team, joking and laughing make Pottles feel like a real home. Dad enjoys the lovely home cooked meals that are provided and has put on weight. I continue to sing the praises of the hard work and commitment the staff provide.
We recommend Pottles Court highly.

I am so pleased to have got my 85 year old mother a place Pottles Court. From the first visit I was sure that she would be cared for and encouraged to get the most from every day, this has proved to be the case and I am amazed at the change I now see in my mother. She is eating well, gaining weight and communicating with the staff who are all very caring and encouraging. There is always something going on to stimulate the residents which is sadly lacking in many Care Homes.Thank you Pottles you are doing a wonderful job going above and beyond the call of duty.

My father was a resident for 16 months until he passed away very recently. The rooms are very clean and tidy and there is a very homely atmosphere. The Management Team are excellent and the staff very understanding and caring, taking time to talk with family. The staff were also very obliging with hospital visits and very kind during father's last illness.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Home to other potential residents.
