The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Hill House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hill House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.5 for Hill House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.5
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 3.143 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hill House Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.143

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Bridget A (Godmother of Resident) on Tuesday 20 February 2018. Relates to November 2017.
My Aunty/Godmother moved into this home eighteen months ago when she could no longer cope physically at home, although mentally she was excellent. She particularly loved the tranquillity, beautiful garden and amazing views.
She would sit in the garden with her little artist's sketch pad and watercolours and the staff always inspired her to do this and this made her extremely happy.
The care she received from the staff was second to none. It is because of this I wish to say a big thank you to the staff. Extremely professional service and quality care which I can recommend. THANK YOU.
