b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.917 for The Leonard Elms Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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.
The 1.534 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Leonard Elms Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.068 , then divided by 2 = 0.034

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Ross F (Son of Resident) on Thursday 17 March 2016. Relates to March 2016.
Dad was at the elms for over 7 years, entering in the mid stages of dementia and staying there until he died. At first he was very active and an escape artist and at the end completely bed ridden and mentally incapacitated.
He was probably as happy there as he was anywhere in his life. He had friendship, a lovely private room with a view, attentive staff, good food, privacy, entertainment and superb nursing care. He became one of the family and relatives were known by sight to the staff. It was a personal and loving place & we had no concerns about him. He wasn't a room number, he was Ken - no care by numbers and bored agency staff at the Elms but an extended family.
Dad was clean, happy, comfortable and well fed and as his disease progressed he was cared for in a dignified and gentle way. The fees were incredibly reasonable and comprehensive with no surprises.
When my time comes I'd be happy to go there.
