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 4.75 for The Oaks Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.75
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 1.522 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Oaks Care Home 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 22.6 positive Reviews (113 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 22.6 Target = 0.044 , then divided by 2 = 0.022

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Derek W (Son-in-law of Resident) on Sunday 5 March 2017. Relates to March 2017.
This Care home is all that I could have wished for given my past experience of health care. Every aspect of my mother in law's life has been managed very well. The staff are the best and look after her as if she was there own and love her to bits. Despite having end of life care her quality of life is the best that she has had in a long time. I cannot begin to explain the weight and worry that such caring staff has taken from the family. To see the loving care that the staff, originally from other countries before making the UK their home is both amazing and humbling. Without them, I do not see how such homes could survive. As far as my mother in law is concerned regarding her health the worst is yet to come and it is a great comfort to know that she is not alone and much loved and cared for.
