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

b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 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 4.917 for Grassington House is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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 3.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Grassington House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.4 Target = 0.417

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Bud S (Son of Resident) on Friday 18 May 2018. Relates to May 2018.
Grassington House is a wonderful example of how a care-home can provide a well organised and professional service within a family atmosphere. The staff really care about the health and comfort of their residents and work very hard to ensure a stimulating programme. Continually engaging with people in their twilight years, is a very challenging and exhausting process but the staff at Grassington House manage to do it with tremendous good humour. A variety of trips as well as fund-raising activities for a host of good causes is well illustrated in the gallery of photographs on display in the care home. Accepting someone as precious as your dad needs more care and support than you are capable of providing and then finding a place that you feel you can trust to provide all the care and support you want for them is so difficult. In Grassington House, our family genuinely feels we have found a place where they can do just that.
