The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Wallace View is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wallace View in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 5 for Wallace View is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 23 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 1.542 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wallace View is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083 , then divided by 2 = 0.042
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Great home - staff pushed to their limits, never have enough time to relax and talk with the residents. Always rushing to next post, buzzers never stop the whole time I visit, which is nearly everyday.
Carers so busy they always looked stressed, even with more staff.
I believe this to be a great home.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we are so pleased that you have taken the time to let us know how great the staff at Wallace View are. We would like to reassure you, however, that we staff the home above dependency levels at present and the resident's dependency levels are checked monthly.

My Nana has been staying in Wallace View since December 2015. We really couldn't ask for anything else from the amazing staff there. My nana's named carer left the room one day when I was visiting, and nana proceeded to tell me "that girl is lovely, nothing is ever too much work for her and she would do anything for anyone." It was very comforting to hear and myself and my mum are very happy with her heightened standard of living since moving in.
