a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time.

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.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by P N (Son of Resident) on Saturday 31 March 2018. Relates to December 2017.
My mother was a resident at Sussexdown from April 2015 until her death in January 2018. During that time she was very well looked after, with the care, activities and outings appropriate for her more active lifestyle when she first moved in and adjusted appropriately as her health deteriorated. There is a good level of facilities for residents, including a chapel and nice grounds with a lovely pastoral view of the South Downs. My mother had her own washstand in her room but shared a bathroom.
