Reviews

8.4 Weymouth Care Home has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.422)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Weymouth Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.493 for Weymouth Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.493

  • 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 3.929 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Weymouth Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.429

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

My mother moved into Weymouth Care Home in October 2016. From the start, she has been treated with the utmost care and respect. We had to sell her home and consequently, had to leave her at the home for a week during the second week of her stay there and did so happily knowing that she was safe and would be well cared for. She is 95 years of age but looks younger and healthier than she has done for some years. We cannot thank the staff enough, be it the cleaner, the laundry assistant, the chef, the carers, the nurses or the managers.

My sister became a resident in July 2015, as with every change there are teething problems but I cannot praise them enough for the care and kindness shown to my sister. If I have a problem management and staff always find a way to help me with this from the management down to the cleaners I have received the best help from them. Very satisfied with our choice of home for my sister.

My wife has been in Weymouth Care Home for the last 5 years, she seems calm and settled within the home. The manager has been in the role for about 3 years and has gathered an excellent team around her; from nurses, carers, domestics and maintenance. Nothing is too much trouble if you have any concerns, and on the whole I am very pleased with the care my wife receives.
