Reviews

8.4 Linksway Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.438)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Linksway Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Linksway Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 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 4.771 for Linksway Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.771

  • 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 3.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Linksway 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.417

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

We can't say enough about Linksway staff and the care my father in law has received over the past 10 months. He was on bed rest for most of the time with very poor health but he ended up being happier here than he had been at home. He was kept clean, comfortable and nothing was too much trouble, cups of tea when he wanted and company when the staff popped by. This home never smells, it's very clean and welcoming. We were never made to feel a nuisance and always listened to. We too were respected as a family alongside our dad. This home is completely recommended by us. We live over 100 miles away but we were kept informed and always given kindness on our phone enquiries.

The attention and care given by the staff at Linksway Nursing Home were faultless. We couldn't have wished for a better place for my Dad to spend his last few weeks. His wishes were taken into account in every decision and his dignity was maintained throughout. We feel so lucky that we found Linksway and there was a bed available for him.

The genial and relaxed and caring atmosphere and approach at Linksway, due in large part to the staff and the ethos, certainly made Dad's last months far more amenable than they would have been in any of the other homes that we had a look at, and we would like very much to place that on record.

I the resident cannot complain at all about my care. The staff have been so kind to me and treated me with the utmost respect. I am unable to walk and they help me with every aspect of my care. I have enjoyed what entertainment I am able to go to and my family are always made welcome. The food is satisfactory and I haven't any complaints.
