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 4.222 for Laburnum Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (15 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.222

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.074

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

My auntie has been in Laburnum Court for several years now and I try to visit once a month.
Staff are all friendly and polite.
A bit too smelly for me, however, warm, clean and fed well.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of Laburnum Court Care Home. We are happy to hear that your overall experience has been so positive and appreciate your kind words about our team. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Have a wonderful day.

Laburnum Court is clean and decently decorated.
All staff are caring and friendly. Meals are glorious and wholesome.
Laburnums failings lie in disorganised care parking and a laundry service that requires a better policing of clothes returns. Many items remain lost after several months.
