7.7 The Windmill Care Centre has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.745)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for The Windmill Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Windmill Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.306 for The Windmill Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (18 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.306

  • 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:

    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.

    3. 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 3.439 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Windmill Care Centre is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.189

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My mother has been at the care home for five years and the care and love is second to none. The staff are polite and are always willing to help. The staff on the ground floor are superb. It would be nice to have more permanent staff, one thing though, is that one person, in particular, needs more help, she is brilliant but one on her own is wrong. They started doing tea and coffee and biscuits that has now stopped. Why?

Mum moved in on November 29th.
We are very pleased with how well she has settled in.
The staff are all very helpful and kind.
They all take time to get to know her and us.
It is lovely to have our Mum back.
She is always in different clothes and always clean.
She is taken out for lunch and shopping.
It's lovely to have "peace of mind" and knowing that Mum is safe and being looked after.
Thank you, everyone, at Windmill.

My Mum was staying at The Windmill Care Centre. Sadly she passed away 8th Dec 2016. I cannot praise the staff that took care of her enough, They were caring, kind and welcomed me whenever I visited Mum. The day Mum passed away they all came into her room to pay their respects, they were genuinely upset. I would tell anyone what a wonderful home it is and I would recommend it without hesitation.
Thank you to all of the staff at The Windmill.
