The Review Score of 7 (maximum of 10) for The Gables Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 3.9 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Gables Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 3.917 for The Gables Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 3.917
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 3.098 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Gables Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.098

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Stephen C (Son of Resident) on Monday 23 April 2018. Relates to April 2018.
My mom has been in the home since December 2017 in the dementia unit.
Mom is well looked after and I always feel that she is safe. Despite challenging behaviours staff are very caring and put a lot of effort into building rapport.
Improvements to the building fabric are ongoing but seem to make slow progress. Memory boxes outside rooms have been started but not completed.
The biggest positive is the attitude of the staff who are always welcoming, friendly and attentive. This applies to nursing staff and care assistants. Management are approachable and responsive to requests for information or assistance.
I do feel however that more could be done to provide activities to engage the residents and hold their interest. There’s often little to do for them. More use of outside help would be a start. E.g singer, exercise coordination, outside walk in the local park etc. Perhaps some of the challenging behaviours would be addressed if residents were occupied for at least part of the day.
