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 4.5 for Brendoncare Ronald Gibson House is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.5
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:
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.

Reviewer Connection to Brendoncare Ronald Gibson House
Submitted from a Website Submission by Robin R on Tuesday 18 April 2017. Relates to March 2017.
My aunt lived at Ronald Gibson House for the last 18 months of her life. She was really well cared for by a stable team who worked consistently hard to make her feel comfortable and secure. Having had to move from a care home (not operated by Brendoncare) at the age of 99 when it closed, the Ronald Gibson team supported her back to health after this shock and she became progressively better during the next 15 months. Probably it is rare for someone of her age to show consistent improvement and whilst this was assisted by her own determination, credit should also go to the Ronald Gibson team who kept adjusting her care to meet her needs and to encourage her to do more. She moved from being virtually bedridden to being taken outside in a wheelchair on warm, sunny days. The care team's cheerfulness and humour have been wonderful and are to be admired. The wider team really supported, including the kitchen who knew her likes and dislikes, the dining room and the activities coordinators.
