The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Grays Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Grays Court in Google's Search Results - more info
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 4.5 for Grays Court 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. 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 3.057 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Grays Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 17.4 positive Reviews (87 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 17.4 Target = 0.057

My Father spent the last year of his life, being looked after by the excellent staff at Grays Court in the Thames Suite. It was a privilege to get to know the overworked, and probably underpaid staff. They were some of the kindest people I have ever met and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them, in doing what is clearly a very difficult job. Grays Court isn't the prettiest looking building, but its what goes on inside that matters, and I certainly couldn't fault anything there. In short, if you are looking for a friendly, caring and down to earth nice place for one of your loved ones, look no further than Grays Court.
