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.

Reviewer Connection to Ridgeway House
Review submitted from a Postal Card by I W (Daughter of Resident) on Monday 8 May 2017. Relates to April 2017.
To go 'into care' is such a difficult decision for both the person and the family, but from being welcomed at the door onwards, we knew it would be OK!
Kindness, help, support and showing empathy and care made it a smooth transition, and the home became home.
Mum has been encouraged to engage with other residents, tempted by the food and cajoled to exercise and move to her best ability.
We have peace of mind. Mum is fine - BRILLIANT!
