Reviews

7.7 Turnpike Court has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.694)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for Turnpike Court 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Turnpike Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.527 for Turnpike Court is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 91 Ratings = 4.527

  • 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Turnpike Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

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

Brilliant staff and place. Since my dad has been in here he has improved drastically. He suffers from dementia and since he has been a resident it's like I have my dad back! Just goes to show the staff really care for people. Can't thank them enough.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this lovely feedback. We are delighted to know that your aunt is happy at Turnpike Court and that the dedication of our staff team is making a difference.

Turnpike is a pleasant and safe environment to leave mum for daycare. Knowing this I am able to continue to work before taking over her care for the rest of the time. On a personal level mum would benefit from a more physically active day, however, the companionship needs are helped by the environment.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us this feedback. We are delighted that you are finding our day care service a valuable way of helping to support your mother. We will discuss ways of getting her involved in more exercise based activities. Thanks again for choosing Turnpike and it's a pleasure to have your mum with us.

My mother has been staying in the home for the last two months, during this time I have found all the staff without exception very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is always very good whenever I visit, which is about three times a week. The home is very clean and tidy and is a pleasant place to visit. My mother seems very settled already in a short space of time. I would find it very difficult to find any faults whatsoever. I would strongly recommend the home to anybody.

Thank you very much for this lovely review. We really appreciate your taking the time to provide it and our staff will be delighted to hear that your mother is settled and happy.

My mother, who had dementia has lived at Turnpike Court for six years. In all of that time she has been treated as an individual with what can only be described as loving care. The staff built a very good relationship with her and the family members from the start. I would have no hesitation in recommending Turnpike Court to anybody in need of care.
