The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Oaklands House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oaklands House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.25 for Oaklands House is calculated as follows: ( (16 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.25

  • 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:

    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.

    The 3.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oaklands House is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.278

  • 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 who as vascular dementia entered Oaklands in December 2016. She had not slept in a bed for some 2 years since my father passed away and as a consequence, she had to go to a nursing home as her legs had become swollen and had ulcers as her legs were never raised. It had taken a few months but with patience, decorum and gentle persuasion, the staff at Oaklands House have dealt with the ulcers with honey and have reduced the swellings and have coerced my mother into sleeping in her bed at night, enabling her to be alert in the daytime rather than sleeping especially missing visitors. The team have been excellent with their patience as my mother can be quite stubborn.

Have no problems at all with Oaklands House or its staff and facilities. My father has been there from January - September 2016 and it was trying hard to get even better. They looked after him in a very kind and caring manner throughout his stay.

When ever I arrive at the home I'm always greeted nicely, most time offered tea and improved how my husband has been doing. The staff are polite, if I've had a problem its been sorted out. On our 60th Wedding Anniversary the staff decorated his room. Made a cake for us and wine in a bucket, and brought my husband a present to give me and a card. Even though he didn't understand this meant so much to me. The staff in turn came and congratulated us. What more could you ask for.
