Reviews

7.9 The Gables has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.869)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for The Gables is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Gables in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 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 4.143 for The Gables is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.143

  • 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 3.726 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Gables 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 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0.476

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

My mother has been at The Gables for nearly two years now and she is always treated with dignity and the care she receives is brilliant. It is a homely environment.

Due to building constraints, some lounge seating allocations are in a busy thoroughfare used by staff, residents, and visitors. Here visiting residents can be a cramped arrangement and personal conversations can be difficult. When Mum moved into a larger room the increase in fees seemed out of proportion. I found the staff to be friendly and informative, and very quick to be in touch when a GP visit, or appointment, was needed. When Mum's care needs increased and it was necessary to re-locate her I was concerned to be handed three unopened letters for her, two of which were almost a month old. I was disappointed, too, with the level of activity and engagement opportunities in the six months that she was resident at The Gables, as something is needed on at least a weekly basis. Meals seemed to be nutritious and adequate, and with flexible choices available to residents if, for example, a sandwich or baked potato was preferred to a dinner-style meal.
