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.

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.

My mother has been a resident of Stinchcombe Manor for four years. My stepfather also lived there until his death 18months ago.
Although there have been a number of changes in those responsible for the care of the residents during the time my mother has lived here, we have always felt she has been safe and looked after.
Her interests have been taken into account, with encouragement to paint and garden when she was able, more recently her singing has been encouraged.

My mother has Alzheimers. I cannot express too much about the wonderful care my mum receives from all the staff - no matter what their position is. It's like one big family in the home. She is warm, clean, well fed (when she will eat) and above all happy.
When I go away, it is good for me to know that she is safe and happy and well looked after. I looked at two other homes before Stinchcombe Manor and neither compared with it. I would highly recommend the home to anyone looking to put a loved one into their care.
