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 4.646 for The Foundation of Lady Katherine Leveson is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.646

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.

    The 3.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Foundation of Lady Katherine Leveson is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

Lady Katherine Leveson came recommended and I was lucky enough to find that a vacancy existed for my wife. Since becoming a resident she has been treated extremely well. We have experience of "carers" visiting our house and were sure that we would never enlist their help again. What a revelation it was to experience the care and affection in Lady Katherine Leveson.

My mother has now been in Lady Katherine for six months and is very happy there. They pay attention to her particular wishes and needs and have been marvellous in dealing with her independence and infirmity. She really likes the food, and the way you can ask for a glass of wine or sherry, or a light supper in your room, and cups of tea for visitors. Sometimes we get frustrated by communication blips but the "senior" care staff and manager are very open and responsive to complaints, questions and suggestions (like tidying up the wheelchair shed).
