Moorlands Residential Home has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.490)
The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Moorlands Residential 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Moorlands Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.833 for Moorlands Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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 1.657 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Moorlands Residential Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target = 0.313 , then divided by 2 = 0.157
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Kate (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 6 April 2016. Relates to March 2016.
We cannot thank Moorlands staff enough for the kindness shown towards mum since her arrival.
Nothing has been too much trouble in any respect, either during the day or night. In mum's own words, she considers herself very fortunate to have found a 'home from home' and feels very secure and well looked after.
As a caring family who have it found it hard to accept that we can no longer cope with mum's needs at home, we are very grateful to have peace of mind that she is now being properly cared for. We visit most days and always feel welcomed into a warm and friendly environment.
Mum enjoys the range of daily activites and looks forward to the hairdresser service on Fridays. As a very fussy eater, mum reports that the food is home cooked using fresh produce.
At almost 95 years old, and having been lovingly cared for in our family home for 14 years, it is a relief to have found this gem where attention to detail can provide a safe and happy haven.
