  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Scalford Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.646 for Scalford Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.646

  • 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 4.089 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Scalford Court Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.339

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

You gave our aunt an extra five years of living and a very happy home to live in. She was content and well cared for and her family were always made more than welcome. We cannot thank you enough or recommend you more highly.

From day one my husband settled in and felt at home in Scalford Court. He had a cheeky personality and a naughty sense of humour. The staff were brilliant at joining in with him, therefore, enabling him to retain this to the very end.
The ambience of the home was perfect for him. He enjoyed his food and ate well. If required, a doctor was called for immediately. The care he received took so much worry and anxiety away from myself and our daughter. He enjoyed his final years. I have no doubt he lasted as long as he did because he was not only cared for but cherished and happy. Thank you Scalford Court.

My mother was very well looked after by the staff at Scalford Court. She was always shown courtesy and kindness throughout her 5-year stay. Her personal hygiene was always taken care of, including having her hair done by a professional hairdresser.
She thoroughly enjoyed the meals that were prepared for her, and her family were always welcome to join her. There were activities for the residents to join in every day and outside speakers as well as visits from the children of a local primary school.
The staff and management were very approachable and friendly. I would recommend Scalford Court without reservation.
