Reviews

7.5 Acorn Retirement Home has a Review Score of 7.5 (7.466)

The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Acorn Retirement Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Acorn Retirement Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 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 4.188 for Acorn Retirement Home is calculated as follows: ( (18 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.188

  • 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 3.278 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Acorn Retirement Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target = 0.278

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

My mother has spent many happy years at The Acorn Retirement Home. The staff are cheerful, caring and always very attentive to my mother's particular needs which became more demanding as she advanced into her nineties. The management have also been excellent and have promptly kept me informed of any changes in her condition while not hesitating to liaise with the appropriate health care professionals as necessary. My mother felt safe and well cared for in a happy environment. I often had lunch with my mother and enjoyed the varied and tasty menu. We both felt that The Acorn Retirement Home was excellent value.

Acorn Retirement Home is a welcoming and caring home. As a visitor, you feel happy to go in and always offered a drink of coffee or tea. My father is well looked after. Any health issues are taken care of and he receives his drugs efficiently. He is always clean and his clothes are tidy and washed. His room is well looked after, clean and safe. He feels secure and happy with the carers who are cheerful and encouraging. They take interest in all the residents and benefit by the fact it is a small home.

My parents have been living at this retirement home for the last three months and they seem very happy there. This is because they are being looked after well and there is minimal stress in terms of meals and medication. The staff are caring and friendly not only to the residents but also to visitors.
