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.

Reviewer Connection to Peterhouse
Submitted from a Website Submission by Mary R on Saturday 18 February 2017. Relates to February 2017.
I was received into Peterhouse at short notice for respite care having sprained my ankle. The care standard was excellent with very friendly and competent staff. My room had a balcony overlooking the garden and an en-suite basin and WC. Every need was attended to quickly and the food was also very good. I would definitely recommend Peterhouse for long-term or respite care.
