Reviews

8.4 The Fountains Care Centre has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.411)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for The Fountains Care Centre 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Fountains Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.457 for The Fountains Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (25 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 46 Ratings = 4.457

  • 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 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.

    The 3.954 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Fountains Care Centre is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 19.6 positive Reviews (98 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 19.6 Target = 0.204

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

When my uncle first came to The Fountains Care Centre after a stroke he could do nothing, now six months on and he's doing well trying to help himself and smiling. The staff are professional and friendly and caring, nothing is too much for them they treat our Uncle with respect and kindness thank you.

We visit friends who live in this care home regularly and we are always impressed by the care they receive and the cheerfulness and friendliness of the staff. Today was a special anniversary for them and the staff went out of their way to make it as memorable as they could. I hope that if ever I'm in need of care that there is room for me in there. We have visited friends in other care homes but we are surprised and astounded at the cheerfulness and informality of the staff here. We commend both staff and management on running a truly "happy ship".

During mums 5 years at The Fountains, there have been 'up & downs'. In recent months, things have improved. The standard of care is good, the environment is pleasant, some things could be better e.g record keeping.
Staff and management are friendly and approachable. When I have had concerns regarding mums care or practices within the home, I have been listened to and issues have been dealt with.
People are encouraged to share their views and feelings about the service.
I've rated questions on this review as satisfactory or good, rather than excellent because, there's always room for improvement!

The way forward is by people making themselves heard. There is the opportunity to do this. In the reception area, there's a list of family/visitor meeting days, questionnaires regarding the service, a suggestion box and a complaints procedure.
Regarding the staff, my rating was good but there are several staff, in varying roles, that I would consider excellent.
Anything below good, I would discuss with management.

Staff members are always friendly. When asking about Mum they are clear in their explanation and keep you up to date with all aspects of care, arranging opticians and dentist. They encourage Mum to engage with activities with no pressure to get involved - if Mum wants to watch her TV that's fine. Food is of good quality and there is plenty of variety. The cleanliness of the home is very good as well. Lovely setting.
