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 4.636 for Edenmore Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 22 Ratings = 4.636

  • 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 3.463 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Edenmore Nursing Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.213

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

Reviewer Connection to Edenmore Nursing Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Friend of Resident/Service User

My father was at Edenmore for 2.5 years, the staff are exceptional here. He was well cared for and I felt all the staff really had a genuine interest and care for him throughout his time at the home.
When it came to his passing, I stayed at his bedside for four days and saw first hand how incredibly caring and compassionate all the staff were.

I have no complaints at all and can only say good things about Edenmore Nursing Home. The staff were always kind, warm hearted, loving and friendly, they didn't treat people like a patient but treated them like human beings. I have worked as a nurse before and I would definitely recommend Edenmore as a brilliant care provider.
