The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Ross Court Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ross Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 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 4.739 for Ross Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.739

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ross Court Care Home is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.714

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

I have been a friend of one resident for 77 years, Godmother to her son and concerned and involved with her life for nearly all those years. I knew of her family and the decision to place her in care. I went to visit soon after her arrival at Ross Court and was instantly impressed and have continued to be so. The care and compassion for her is instantly apparent and as her condition (onset Alzheimer's) became evident, I continue to see outstanding levels of professionalism and an exceptional manager and staff of the highest standard.

Although it is 2 years since my Nan stayed here for respite care I would like to talk about this home. The staff were wonderful at all times with Nan. She only stayed for 2 weeks but in that short time she felt settled and happy,which for her as an independent lady was a massive task. Her room was beautiful and she couldn't wish for better care. Special mention to the carer who Nan really developed a special bond with. Thank you for making a difficult time that bit easier.

My wife has the best attention possible and I have access to all senior staff at all times, if necessary. The best in the area. It is a pity that a nursing service is not offered because the care and support is almost up to that standard

I think Ross Court Care Home is a very good home, it is more like a luxury hotel. The atmosphere is great, very friendly, a high standard, it is very well maintained and the staff are always smart. The activities they provide are also a very valuable asset, you are occupied in a way that is appropriate for the individual. They have regular events that involve family and friends. The cost I know would deter some people but for those who can afford it, I thoroughly recommend it.

After my initial thoughts to move to a care home, I soon settled into my new life, taking part as much as possible in the homes activities. Thoughts of losing my independence were soon forgotten. My favourite places are the lovely gardens. The staff are helpful, friendly and cheerful and I feel lucky to call Ross Court my home. This is also a sentiment, that a friend of mine who visits me often shares with me. All the staff go to great lengths to give me the support I need. The managers door is always open for talks and advice to residents and their family and friends alike. The atmosphere at Ross Court is one of peace, pleasantness and loving care, just as you would expect in a happy family. I have no hesitation to recommend Ross Court to anyone looking for a home from home.

Mum has been in Ross Court for 2 years now. She is very happy, stimulated and well cared for by attentive and cheerful staff. This month her Sky TV signal dropped and the home quickly arranged a rescue so she could continue to enjoy her tennis. It can be summed up in the phrase ' this care home smells like a hotel not a care home'.
