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 4.562 for Kingsthorpe View Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.562

  • 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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsthorpe View Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

7.7 Kingsthorpe View Care Home has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.662) from 11 Reviews

I was very nervous putting my mum into respite care, but the facilities and staff in the residential unit have been fantastic. The care my mother received from the staff has been wonderful and I never worried about the care she received.
Her room was very peaceful and homely and she has made friends.
I would recommend Kingsthorpe View to everyone who wants peace of mind when thinking about future care for an elderly relative.

My dad was very difficult when he first came here, violent and verbally abusive. He is now much calmer, very happy and rarely has any outbursts compared to 3 years ago. Staff are fantastic with him and very supportive to the family. I couldn't be happier with dad's care.

I have been going with my best friend to see her husband once a week for about 2 years. I find the home and staff very warm and welcoming. All the staff are genuine in their care for my friend's husband. I am offered a cup of tea every visit, plus special days to join the lovely buffets. Staff treat all the residents that I have met with the utmost respect. The home is always clean and warm.

My wife is cared for in this home and I find the staff very clean, helpful, forthcoming with any advice and information. Her room is comfortable, well cleaned with a nice view overlooking the city. I would gladly recommend this home to anyone with the same condition as my wife, due to the care and attention that my wife receives.

The staff at Kingsthorpe View always made us feel welcome and treated my mother like family, nothing was every too much trouble. They always went that extra mile in mother's last days, she was treated with the best care I could have asked for. My mum always spoke so highly of the staff.

When visiting my father-in-law the staff are really helpful, they explain everything concerning him. My father-in law has settled in really well in this home and he seems a lot happier that he has been for a while. He's eating better and the staff talk to him better than any other home he's been able to.

Staff are pushed too much. No permanent nurse. Staff are very friendly and you can see they try their best, but underpaid, overworked staff is not good for any home. The amount of money people pay to be in here. Food and watered down juice and budget food is poor. Cut back with elderly is SAD!
