Reviews

8.3 Kingsacre has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.283)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Kingsacre 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kingsacre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.739 for Kingsacre is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.739

  • 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 3.544 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsacre 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.294

  • 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 Kingsacre

  • Sister of Resident/Service User

Our 99-year-old father was admitted to Kingsacre five weeks ago when a single carer was no longer sufficient to look after him in his own home.

From his arrival, the staff were polite, efficient, reassuring, very friendly and considerate of his wishes, ready to do all that was necessary, while respecting his dignity and his frequent calls for attention.

His situation rapidly deteriorated, continuing the process that had already started before he left home. In the last few days, members of the family were with him 24 hours per day, helped enormously by a member of the staff seconded to help out during the last two nights. It is impossible to imagine anyone more sympathetic and caring than this person. The professional nursing staff were extremely attentive to his changing condition and did what they could, in consultation with the doctor, to relieve him of pain and make his departure as easy for him and the family as possible.

My sister has learning disabilities and to be unable to go home after a broken ankle was distressing for her; the loving nature of staff easily dispelled her anxieties. I visited her daily and was made equally as welcome. I was pleased that there were many members of staff at all times, all of the staff were polite, helpful and approachable if I had a question (i.e. about a hospital visit or involving social services). All staff members appeared very professional and knowledgeable in their nursing field. My sister's bespoke needs mean that she likes to feel comfort from others and all the staff recognised when she needed affection and would hold her hand to give her the security she needed to which we are hugely grateful. She has many food allergies and these were easily catered for by the kitchen staff. All residents had a good selection for each meal. The meals are of an ideal/healthy portion size and clearly, meet your daily nutrient needs.
