Reviews

6.1 Kington Court has a Review Score of 6.1 (6.052)

The Review Score of 6.1 (maximum of 10) for Kington Court 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kington Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.5 for Kington Court is calculated as follows: ( (14 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 1.552 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kington Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.104 , then divided by 2 = 0.052

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

My father has been a resident at Kington Court since May 2014. He was admitted as a permanent resident following a series of minor strokes resulting in sudden onset of Dementia, requiring him to have full time care. He had previously been admitted to Kington Court for respite care and had enjoyed his stay there, so we decided that it would be the most appropriate place for his full time care. During the past 18 months or so, I have found the staff to be welcoming and show compassion towards all of the residents there. I live in London, making it difficult to see my Father on a regular basis, however, the staff always inform me of any changes to my father's health or tell me what he has been doing that day when I call them. The rooms are on the first floor, which lends a 'light and airy' aspect to the building, which can only contribute positively to the health and well being of the residents. I do look forward to my visits there and feel that the staff are part of my extended family as they always make me feel welcome. Witnessing a parent or loved one experiencing Dementia is a harrowing experience for all concerned, the staff at Kington are clearly trained in being sensitive towards the emotional aspects and therefore make attempts to ease the burden that families may feel. I would therefore highly recommend Kington Court.
