b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.458 for Homewood is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.458
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:
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.
The 3.45 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Homewood is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25
Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.200
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

This is a caring home with staff who make a real effort to give individual care and consideration to every resident. It is rigorously clean and well maintained. Visitors and residents wishes and preferences are welcomed and acted on whenever possible. In particular, my mother's key worker is unfailingly accessible, reassuring but honest in the care and attention she gives to my mother.

I received respite care from 28th October to 15th November following hip surgery. I would unhesitatingly recommend Homewood. I live only 300 yards from Homewood so I knew of its existence, but I did not have any knowledge of the establishment. I was delighted when I was accepted for the short stay. Whilst at Homewood, I happened to contact my GP who gave a glowing recommendation of Homewood as being the best home in Leamington Spa. Particularly the staff were very very good as was the food - it was five star. In terms of cost, it was expensive but I would still attend again.
