Overview

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Woodlands Atherton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodlands Atherton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • 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)

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 5 for Woodlands Atherton is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5

  • 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 1.566 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodlands Atherton is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.132 , then divided by 2 = 0.066

  • 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 Woodlands Atherton

  • Sister of Resident/Service User
    1

My brother has lived in Woodlands Residential Home for well over 12 months now and the care he has received has been excellent. All the staff have taken the time to get to know him and as a result, he has settled in very well.
The home itself has a calm and peaceful atmosphere and is spotlessly clean and tidy whenever I visit. All the residents look very well cared for and content and it's obvious to anyone visiting that the staff really do care. It's so important to have peace of mind when a relative has to move into a residential home and I have not had one concern the whole time my brother has been there. This is because the staff are so dedicated. Thank you so much.
