Overview

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Blenheim Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blenheim Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.759 for Blenheim Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.759

  • 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 4.395 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blenheim Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6.2 Target = 0.645

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

9.2 Blenheim Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.154) from 7 Reviews

Mum moved in two weeks ago. She was welcomed very nicely and settled in very quickly. I have visited a few times and enjoyed it as all the staff are very friendly and efficient.
I'm very happy Mum is living here now.

My mother was at Blenheim Care Home for thirteen months and during that time (before her death this September) she was cared for in a loving and sensitive way. Every one of the staff were friendly, helpful and very caring towards her. They looked after her with palliative end of life care right until her death. I can't speak more highly of them.

The dedicated hands-on manager and her hard-working team are caring and compassionate.
Residents’ personal needs are well catered for and their home is always clean and tidy.
I have seen a good selection of meals served with individual food preferences and times taken into account.
Residents are able to participate, if they wish, in many of the arranged activities, seasonal events and birthday parties.
Mum especially loves the regular live music sessions, being taken out in the minibus for trips eg garden centre, the seaside for ice cream, tea and cake in the forest, animal farm.
Other residents enjoy art and craft making, memory games, gardening.
Family and friends are encouraged to visit anytime.
It is comforting to know and see that my mum is now safe, happy and well looked after.

The management and staff are so compassionate and caring towards the residents., The home is spotlessly clean. The staff always go the extra mile in caring for the residents.
The residents participate in activities and those able are taken out for treats, for example, afternoon tea, picnics and theatre. The residents are kept clean and tidy and personal accidents dealt with quickly and seamlessly. My family are so pleased that they found Blenheim Home. Our mum is so happy and love in there.

The manager and staff go the extra mile to arrange parties and activities. The care is second to none and I have booked a place for myself when the time comes.

You hear so much bad press about care homes, never the good.

Keep up the excellent work!
