Reviews

9.7 Talbot View has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.667)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Talbot View is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Talbot View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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 4.989 for Talbot View is calculated as follows: ( (94 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.989

  • 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 4.678 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Talbot View is based on 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.678

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

Talbot View care home has improved due to the hard work of the manager and care staff that have made mums stay, as mum says, 'perfect'.The manager is friendly, approachable and he will always carry things through when asked. Another carer deserves a mention, she is a wonderful carer and support for the family, recently Mum had a hospital appointment for a skin condition and the consultant said how impressed she was with information and detailed body maps sent by this carer.

My mother is totally happy in her new surroundings and has seamlessly moved into her new environment. The minute you step in the front door you feel the relaxing ambience of the home and the staff could not be more helpful. I could quite happily spend my final years here.

My grandmother has been a resident of Talbot View since 2008 and I thank all of the staff for their loving care over the years. Unfortunately, we are near the end and I can see how much the staff care for the residents through all their support at this testing time. Not only have the staff cared for my grandmother, they have supported my grandfather and all of my close family. I cannot thank everyone enough for the dignified care for my grandmother and ongoing support for those that love her.

The care generally was excellent. The staff and management showed a lot of love and care to both of us to the extent of us feeling like part of a family throughout the past 7 years. I could go home assured she was safe and in the best of care. The care was second to none, especially the last week of my wife's life.
