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 4.917 for The Meadows is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917

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 Linda (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 3 January 2016. Relates to December 2015.
My father was in the Meadows for respite during December, I was very impressed by the care my father was given by all the staff, in the past he has stayed at another home but never settled, he was always agitated and very unhappy, but the care he received at The Meadows was exceptional, he was calm, content, and smiling, this was a great relief to the family. I think my father expressed his feelings well, when I asked if he was ok at the home he said, yes, I feel free to do what I want.
The staff showed him respect, gave him dignity in his care, and acknowledged his independent nature. My father was not just another person but an individual and they treated him so.
The Meadows is most certainly very special, their staff are exceptionally caring people, and although I live a long distance from my father and the home, I would not hesitate in choosing this home should he need long term care. My dad is now back home, stronger and happy and this is all down to the care of the staff at The Meadows.
I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for my dad. THEY ARE SIMPLY THE BEST.
