Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ramping Cat House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.545 for Ramping Cat House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 88 Ratings = 4.545

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ramping Cat House Nursing Home is based on 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target Reached = 1

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

9.5 Ramping Cat House Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.545) from 8 Reviews

My husband requires 24-hour care and is wheelchair bound. Since arriving at Ramping Cat House last year, we have experienced friendly and caring service. All friends visiting agree that they are always welcomed and feel the home has a warm, cosy atmosphere. Unlike the home, he was in previously! The management and staff do an amazing job considering the enormity of it.

I found that my husband was treated with kindness and consideration always. He never appeared unhappy under very trying circumstances.

Thank you for your feedback.

My grampy was taken to the care home after being in hospital. He had been in another care home which we were not happy with, so as you can imagine we were all a bit concerned at first with the move. As we looked around and met the staff, we soon realised that it was a lovely, homely place and the staff were so welcoming to us at all times. My gramp received so much attention and they cared for his needs so well. Sadly he passed away but the staff were so supportive and gave us private time near the end but were just outside the door if we needed them.

The staff at the care home are absolutely amazing. My husband has now stayed 3 times for respite and I would not hesitate to book in the future. The home is very clean and very caring about all of their residents. I would rate the home as 100%.

I was extremely impressed by the quality of care my friend received. I am a retired nurse and these things matter enormously to me. My friend died in your care and his care could not have been bettered. He always looked clean, shaven and even the day before he died nodded when I asked him if he was comfortable. The staff were all courteous and friendly. The room was clean, bright and attractive.
His family were also very grateful for the care that he received in the last weeks of his life and by the friendliness and sympathetic support they received from all the staff.

My mum went to the Ramping Cat House Nursing Home last night. I can honestly say when she went in she looked dreadful. She looks so much better with the care she is receiving.

The most amazingly supportive, calm and professional set of staff met us on that initial step inside this care home. I felt immediately at home, as my Mother is now feeling even with her difficult illness. The facilities are excellent, cleanliness is as you would expect your home to be and the location is to dream of.
Since Mum has been there, the entire family has been relieved of stress, worry and sadness. Now we smile as we walk into the building and we always receive a smile and personal greeting in return.
The medical care and attention to detail is so brilliant and really comforting to know that Mum is safe and looked after like a family member with all the dignity she deserves.
The catering is first class and nothing appears to be too much trouble for any of the team.

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. Thank you all so much.
