The Review Score of 4.2 (maximum of 10) for Homestead Care 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 Homestead Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 4.167 for Homestead Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.167

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Homestead Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0

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

The staff are very friendly and will take the time to answer any questions and bring me up to date as to what my husband has been doing, he has dementia he is happy smiling but will not keep still always walking about. He goes to the office for his chocolate. He can be stubborn at times e.g. would not have his toenails cut, but he is happy so am I with the way he is looked after.

Residents are woken every morning and dressed ready for the day. Chiropody, hairdressing and shaving are given when needed. Staff training is easy to see because everyone works together as a team which also reflects good managemnet. Although my husband has had two falls this in no way reflects on the staff. Paramedics arrived quickly and hospital treatment was given if necessary, visitors are always welcome and I have recommended the Homestead Care Home to other people.

My mums grandson is getting married and he wants her to be there. The staff have been really kind in helping us prepare her for the day. Hair/nails/clothing etc On a daily basis she is well cared for and treated with dignity. I chose this (satisfactory) because I think it's a national disgrace that she has to pay for her care!

I am very happy with the home and staff for their support with my mother and myself and have peace of mind that she is being well looked after. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the management very understanding and very organized and very reassuring and are at hand to help in anyway.
