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 4.611 for Fairfield House Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.611

  • 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 3.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fairfield House Residential Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.417

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

The care here has been fantastic. Mum and Dad have different needs, and all issues have been dealt with professionally, and with compassion. It is hard to leave your parents in a home, but I am confident that they are well looked after at Fairfield.

The one issue I have with Fairfield is the interaction with the residents. The only stimulation they have is when entertainment is brought in. Residents are left for long periods doing nothing while activity staff just wander around. Very rarely have I been in and seen staff interacting with the residents.
