Reviews

8 Wellcross Grange has a Review Score of 8 (8.000)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wellcross Grange 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 4.889 for Wellcross Grange is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 3.111 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wellcross Grange is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.111

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

I am delighted, relieved and very pleased my friend is a resident at Wellcross Grange. She has been there for 18 months by which time, I have never failed to be impressed by the care and affection of the staff and the high standard of comfort and catering at Wellcross Grange. The sister/manager sets the highest standards and I believe my friend is very fortunate to reside there

My mother has been at Wellcross Grange since the end of last year. We have found the staff very caring and attentive and when any points have been raised they have been dealt with promptly. The house and grounds are very pleasant and make visiting very easy, there is always a cup of tea and biscuit or cake and ii is easy to find somewhere quiet to talk. My mother appreciates the food and activities provided especially the monthly communion service. The house always smells fresh when we visit.
