b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.083 for Meadowyrthe is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.083
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 1.561 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meadowyrthe is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target = 0.122 , then divided by 2 = 0.061

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Diane (Daughter of Resident) on Saturday 18 June 2016. Relates to May 2016.
My mother was here for temporary respite before going into a permanent care home. A difficult phase as Mum had lived at her home all her life. The staff handled her initial anxiety really well. When I visited they were always very respectful, chatty and cheerful with Mum. The manager, talked me through Mum's file very well.
It was comprehensively and accurately written. Staff were also very responsive to requests. When I asked if I could take Mum outside in her wheelchair they transferred her by hoist as soon as they could. They were also very responsive when I phoned to ask how Mum was doing (I live far away).
Overall they provided a good level of care and were very welcoming and friend each time I visited.
