  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.563 for Royley House is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.563

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target = 0.122

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

7.7 Royley House has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.685) from 4 Reviews

My husband, who has advanced Altzeimer's, has lived in Royley House for over 2 years and I can not ask for him to be better cared for. He and all the other residents are always clean and tidy and there is never any smell as there is in many homes.
The staff are always cheerful and care for him as though he was their own grandfather.
What more could I ask.

My mother has been looked after over the past 4 years with the utmost compassion and care by all the staff.
I have no reservations whatsoever over her care. All the carers are excellent from management, carers, laundry, kitchen. Mum always looks well dressed and the staff deserve a pay increase for all their hard work

My mother is and has been looked after with care and compassion over the last four years.
My sister and I have no complaints.
Her clothes are changed every day and my mum always looks well dressed. This is due partly to the excellent staff in the laundry.
All the staff are cheerful and friendly and deserve more money for their hard work.

Royley House is a well maintained, bright and comfortable care home. It provides excellent care to all residents. They are treated with the utmost dignity and understanding. There are some outstanding staff members who go the extra mile and meet the needs of all residents. The home environment is light and spacious. It's entirely odourless and comfortable in every respect. I have been a constant visitor to the home over a seven year period and felt quite content with the care given to my Mum over that time. I am delighted to have been "lucky" enough to be offered this placement for my mum - a victim of severe dementia. The care is given to her at the end of life was outstanding. I am truly grateful to the staff.
