Reviews

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Holmwood Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Holmwood Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 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 4.194 for Holmwood Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.194

  • 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 3.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Holmwood Care Centre 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.250

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

My mom has been a resident at Holmwood since August 2016. She was recently taken very poorly. The care provided by the staff at Holmwood was second to none. I'd like to thank the team that attended to her every need while we waited for the GP and Paramedics. They not only took great care of Mom, but also supported us (the family). Mom spent a few days in hospital, during which Holmwood kept in touch with us and the hospital. They were keen to have Mom back and care for her. They liaised directly with the hospital regarding her condition and return home and organised transport once medically fit. On her return, Mom received a very warm welcome, paying frequent visits to her room. The situation has confirmed that Mom is very well cared for and it is a comfort to know that she is in good hands. A big thank you to all.
