  • 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 3.829 for Farnworth Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 3.829

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 3.042 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Farnworth Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

My mum-in-law was resident in Farnworth Care Home for end of life care and from the initial look around the home prior to her admission, and through to her death my husband and I were extremely impressed and grateful for the wonderful care they provided for her in her final days.

Thanks to the professional and dedicated staff she had a comfortable, dignified and peaceful passing. We would happily recommend them to anyone unfortunate enough to be needing end of life care.

Our deepest thanks.

My mum was resident in Farnworth care home for end of life care. From my initial look round to view the home for my mum prior to her admission, right through till the day she passed away I have been extremely impressed and grateful for the wonderful care they provided for her. I have been a nurse for almost 40 years and have had the privilege to work with some wonderful caring nurses throughout these years but as a relative on the other side of the fence, I can honestly say everyone of the team caring for my mum were wonderful, kind and patient. I would be proud to call myself a member of their team. I cannot thank them enough. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone unfortunate enough to be requiring palliative/end of life care.
Mum had a dignified peaceful death, thanks to the dedication and professionalism of the whole team. Thank you.
