b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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?'

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.

Reviewer Connection to Southlands Court
Review submitted from a Postal Card by B G (Son-in-law of Resident) on Wednesday 31 May 2017. Relates to May 2017.
As with many care/residential homes, staff numbers at realistic pay rates is always a real factor. High % of staff are 'local' and perform very well. Retention will always be difficult. Rural situation a big asset.
Change of recent ownership is taking a little time for 'dust to settle'. Reception by all staff is warm and very welcoming.
