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 4.364 for Tasker House is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 11 Ratings = 4.364

  • 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 3.179 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tasker House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0.179

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

Reviewer Connection to Tasker House

  • Son of Resident/Service User
    1

My father suffers from dementia and has been at Tasker House for about 3 months. In the time I have been visiting, I have found all of the staff to be friendly and considerate towards all of the residents. They are really kind to dad, never lose patience with him and his general well-being and health have improved noticeably in the time he has been there. No recurrence of the various ailments he was beginning to suffer from when he lived alone and which were resulting in hospital stays. I have been advised if he has had a cold and on this occasion, they arranged for his chest to be checked by a doctor in case of infection. I am quite confident he is in safe hands now.
