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 4.667 for Furzeham Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
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:
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.
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.
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 3.227 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Furzeham Lodge Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0.227

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Julie S (Daughter of Resident) on Thursday 19 January 2017. Relates to January 2017.
My Mum has now been looked after by the all the staff at Furzeham Lodge for nearly 6 years. They have seen and helped Mum through her declining stages of dementia and forced immobility due to her illness. My sisters and I are so grateful to all the management and staff for the care, kindness and empathy that they have shown to Mum and us through her decline. It's difficult to describe in words how much this means and simply it just means everything to know that Mum is in kind, caring and supportive hands. I cannot recommend this home enough. It's down to each of the team and the amazing job they do.
