Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for The Gables Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Gables Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.652 for The Gables Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.652

  • 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 The Gables Care Home is based on 11 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 1.000

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

9.7 The Gables Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.652) from 11 Reviews

I am very pleased that my mother was placed in The Gables Care Home. I am very pleased with her care and the attention she receives. She is always clean and tidy looking. On the occasions she has been unwell the doctor was called after being examined by a nurse. We feel the residents seem very well loved by the attentive staff.

The care offered to my mum during her time at The Gables has been excellent. Our trust in the staff is 100%. They obviously all love and care for all residents as if they are family. Having a family member with dementia is very difficult and harrowing but knowing they are cared for in somewhere like The Gables is reassuring.

The most important thing in the care home is the staff and activities that are on offer. The dedicated entertainment team are a plus. I have found all the staff very attentive to the residents (full-time). Obviously, we have our favourites, the staff that go the extra mile, and there are quite a few that do. The staff also look after my dad when he visits. I've only seen the manager a few times but he has been very pleasant. It's not the easiest place to work but I'm glad the staff do. There always very busy with the residents as some are extremely challenging.
