Prospect House has a Review Score of 4.5 (4.500)
The Review Score of 4.5 (maximum of 10) for Prospect House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Prospect House in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.
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 4.5 for Prospect House is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.5
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:
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.
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.
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Prospect House is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Helen L (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 11 October 2015. Relates to October 2015.
My Mum was diagnosed with Dementia, there had been a mental decline for a few years. Eventually carers and myself found her hard to handle. Who could I trust with the welfare of my Mother? On 29 June 2015 the decision was taken out of my hands when Social Services had complaints from neighbours worried about her. It became impossible for her to look after herself at home and she was admitted to Prospect House as an emergency. It was a trauma for me, but imagine the relief when I visited her at the home the next day. I was welcomed by strong management and very sensitive caring staff.
My Mum has now been in Prospect House 15 weeks and she has settled in, she looks well, enjoys her food and has good relationships with the staff, who have gone out of their way to support her. I know they have taken time to talk to her and show great patience and it has paid off.
Imagine my surprise when I visited her yesterday to find her helping settle a new resident in....!
I would recommend this care home to anyone in a similar situation. There are big purpose built care homes that might look fancy, but quite frankly that would be wasted on my Mum. Prospect House has given her what she needs - CARE from quality human beings; because that's what she is a human being with her own special needs, which are being met.
My thanks go to all at this particular care home. I am so grateful.

Susan Lucas, Registered Manager at Prospect House responded to this review on 13 Oct 2015:
There are times when for whatever reason an individual may require emergency care. As this is by nature unplanned, the team at Prospect House realise how daunting this can be, for not only the individual but their family members as well, after all they are entrusting us to care for someone very precious to them. We take the time to get to know the families as well as the individual and try to provide them with support through what can be a very traumatic time.
