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 5 for Cartref Dyfi Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 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 Cartref Dyfi Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 5.6 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Angie (Daughter of Resident) on Tuesday 11 August 2015. Relates to August 2015.
My mother has been resident at this care home for about 5 years now. She arrived with very mild dementia, which has progressed over the years. The staff have always been very attentive and treated her with dignity and respect. Nothing has been too much trouble for the manager or her staff. They often go the extra mile - over and above the call of duty. The first thing my mother said when she arrived was how lovely the food was. She still tells me how much she enjoys it now. I am always made welcome and greeted with a warm smile when I visit her. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone. It is a great comfort to know that my mother is being looked after so well in my absence. I cannot imagine that she could get any better care anywhere else. A big thank you to the manage and all the staff.
