  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Eckington Court Nursing Home 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.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.783 for Eckington Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 46 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 3.8 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Eckington Court Nursing Home 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.300

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

8.6 Eckington Court Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.583) from 4 Reviews

My friend received quality care from each individual she encountered in Eckington Court for the six weeks she was there. Visitors were also made to feel extremely welcome. My friend was treated with respect, dignity and kindness. Thanks to you all.

As a team, we strive to provide the best care possible for our residents and I am pleased to hear that you feel that your friend received quality care during her stay with us and that she was treated with respect, dignity and kindness.

I cannot find the right words to express my gratitude for the last 16 months. The staff at Eckington Court Nursing Home, became my mum's extended family. They showed her love, respect and dignity. They made us her family feel that we were apart of that family too. When she passed away in October of this year, mum's carers and nurses were there for us also.
We had found that this wonderful home was full of love, it was spotlessly clean, no nasty smells. The meals gorgeous. Mum loved it here. A very happy home. Thank you, everyone, from the bottom of our hearts for your wonderful care of my Mum xx

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a positive review for our home, we are always pleased to receive feedback and I will certainly share it with the team. We strive to provide the best care possible and have each resident’s person-centred care at the heart of what we do. We are so pleased to hear your mum was happy here with us and we loved looking after her. We wish you all the best for the future.

My brother and I visit our uncle when we can and I have always been impressed by the friendliness of everyone and the homely atmosphere there. I am particularly impressed with how the staff have really gone the extra mile to meet my uncle's needs. We had a family bereavement recently and the staff were very sensitive to that and have helped him immensely. They have also done their best to meet his health and well-being needs generally. I would be happy to recommend this care home to others.

Trudy Godley, Home Manager.

Words cannot express just what a truly fantastic home this is. The amount of care, respect, love and dignity that the staff show to Residents like my Mother-in-Law are honestly truly amazing. This home is what it says, a HOME. It is maintained to the highest of standards, no nasty smells, etc. the food doesn't just look good, but tastes lovely. The staff are lovely, friendly and nothing is too much bother for them. My mum-in-law recently had to go to the hospital for a few days, the staff, were certainly quick off the mark to make sure she received medical treatment. I would honestly give this home a very big 10 out of 10. Thank you all of you for taking such great care of my mum-in-law.
