b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.417 for Longmead Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.417
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 3.093 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Longmead Court Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.093

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Michael F (Son of Resident) on Tuesday 3 April 2018. Relates to March 2018.
I cannot praise highly enough the care and attention that my parents have received whilst they have been resident at Longmead.
My mother has been a resident for 2 years, she suffers from Vascular Dementia and is in her eighties. As a family we feel that she is in the best place, she is safe and secure and well looked after. There are regular visits from GP's, opticians and in her case the local church.
My father, who passed away last year, was also a resident and during his final months he was made as comfortable as possible and it was very apparent the bond between him and the staff was very strong. The individual care that both of my parents have received has been first class.
The staff are very supportive, they genuinely care for the residents in their care.
Visiting has never proved a problem and actively encouraged.
There are local trips out and there is entertainment on a regular basis.
As a family, we are very happy with the service that Longmead supply.
