  • 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 4.417 for Gillingreane is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.417

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gillingreane is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 6.6 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.

My wife has been here for about 2 years. about 6 weeks ago she took a turn for the worse and became bedfast. I was asked if I would like her to go into hospital or let them take care of her, I decided she would be happier where she was. They got her an electric bed and she is settled now. As I love just 5 mins away I can visit her every day.

My father is at this residential home. Top marks go to the staff, they try to do their best for each resident and the individual needs. Recently they have done some improvements which has made the home tidier and they are always trying to make things easier for the residents. The only niggle I have is that sometimes there is no a lot for them to do. The telly is not always on and it can be so warm, that most of the residents are asleep!
As a health professional I would have to say Gillingreane comes out tops for me, because the staff care and that makes difference.
