  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 2 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 4.914 for The Woodlands Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.914

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Woodlands Residential Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 3 positive Reviews (15 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 3 Target = 0.667

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

This care home is the next best thing to being in my own home, the carers of all ages are really quite wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, my room is lovely, although this is an old building it has been made to feel homely. There is always a very good choice of food but because it is so delicious I have to be careful not to put on too much weight!

The staff at The Woodlands Residential Home are all without exception very caring and attentive at all times.
So much extra is done for the resident as far as taking them our for meals, taking them out in the wheelchairs, playing games with them like snakes and ladders when the weather is bad. Also always on hand for me as a visitor for help and advice and a cup of tea. My sister can have visitors at any time which is good.
