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 4.583 for Dunkirk Memorial Home is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.583
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:
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.
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.
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 1.528 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Dunkirk Memorial Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.056 , then divided by 2 = 0.028

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Lesley L (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 18 January 2017. Relates to December 2016.
Our precious mother was at Dunkirk Memorial Home for nearly five years. She sadly passed away in December. The quality of the care she received throughout the duration of her stay was outstanding. The care and support that she received in the two weeks whilst she was on end of life care was also outstanding.
The staff at the home were very sensitive and were not phased by the amount of family members that stayed with her throughout this time and made us very welcome.
As a family, we would not hesitate to highly recommend this home.
