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 4.75 for Littleborough Home for the Elderly is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.519 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Littleborough Home for the Elderly 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 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.769

My mum was in hospital and could no longer cope at home and needed specialist care. The hospital social services found the home and my mum came in just before Christmas. I must say that during her time here I cannot find anything wrong with the home. My mum is getting the care she needs and that is a great relief to me knowing she is being cared for. I would have no problem in recommending the home to anyone that needs a family member looking after.

The staff are warm, friendly and treat mum kindly and with humour. Mum's health is well monitored and appropriate medical staff are always contacted if there's any doubt. Mum had c-diff in the past and had to be in her room for 6-8 weeks and she never got a bedsore and the staff treated her with dignity and empathy throughout. Mum enjoys the staff contact, the food and the view from her room.
