Reviews

9.5 Abington Park View has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.514)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Abington Park View 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Abington Park View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.514 for Abington Park View is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.514

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Abington Park View is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target Reached = 1

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

Although Mum has only been with you a relatively short time, both my brother and myself are extremely happy with the level of care she is receiving. All the carers/staff are extremely friendly and all seem to care in a meaningful way to all of the residents.

Abington Park View has a friendly atmosphere and lacks the institutional feel of many care homes. The building has character which adds to the homely feel. The staff are genuine carers. I know that mum is safe, happy and enjoys the company of many other residents.

We usually visit unannounced but also ask the care staff if there are any personal things such as clothes or toiletries that my aunt requires. My impression of the home is that the day, meals and activities are well structured. The accommodation is bright and clean.

The home has a modern kitchen and sources pre-prepared meals.
I have sampled them and found them acceptable?

The home provides meetings including residents and supporters. These are minuted.

Arun Vedd, Director at Abington Park View responded to this review on 18 Jul 2017:

We do publish a monthly Activities Calendar on the notice board. Perhaps it may have been overlooked as there are many Memos, Notices, messages, Thank you cards etc, Residents Photos too.

Great location, staff well trained and very passionate about the resident's welfare and comfort. I have never seen so much care into care and attention into refurbing a home; allowing residents to choose colour schemes and fabrics.
